I imagine it is really difficult to diagnose COVID in Florida. Outside of the creators of a few Art Deco gems, it is very rare to find a Floridian who has NOT suffered from a complete loss of taste.

"None of the three are certain how or where they contracted the virus. "

If they took the proper precautions, they most likely would not have contracted the virus. IF they did though, they would be likely to know how they got it.

It's just a matter of time till everyone gets it.  I guess it's news to report celebs that get it but no different than the average joe getting it.  Let me know when Bruce Dickerson or Chris Robinson gets it please.

Everyone has AIDS
AIDS, AIDS, AIDS
AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS
Everyone has AIDS
And so this is the end of our story
And everyone is dead from AIDS
It took from me my best friend
My only true pal, my only bright star
(He died of AIDS)
Well I'm gonna march on Washington
Lead the fight and charge the brigades
There's a hero inside of all of us
I'll make them see everyone has AIDS

My father
(AIDS)
My sister
(AIDS)
My uncle and my cousin and her best friend
(AIDS, AIDS, AIDS)
The gays and the straights and the whites and the spades
Everyone has AIDS
My grandma and my dog 'ol blue
(AIDS, AIDS, AIDS)
The pope has got it and so do you
(AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS)
C'mon everybody we got quilting to do
(AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS)
We gotta break down these baricades, everyone has

AIDS, AIDS, AIDS
AIDS, AIDS, AIDS
AIDS, AIDS, AIDS

The story makes it sound as if the TV station was still using its newsroom for everyone.

Here in Seattle they moved reporters, anchors, weather people to their homes months ago.  There are a VERY limited number of people in the studio.

I'm now having fun imagining just how messed up a porn starring someone whose porn name was "Florida Man" would be.

"I'm not wearing any pants" is especially poignant right now.

No. If everyone around them had taken the proper precautions, they most likely would not have contracted the virus. If you're masked and the infected person isn't, all bets are off. As for social distancing, it is impossible to force someone to keep six feet away from you. You can back away, but they can keep coming.

Just under half of the people who came into my lobby so far today were from Florida, 27 people in total. Two of them were wearing masks, and those two were traveling together.

Several of those 27 leaned over the counter around my plexi barriers. One of them grabbed one of my barriers and set it on the floor behind him before leaning over the counter to talk to me.

I have seen a significant increase in the number of visitors from Florida lately, and very few of them are being responsible in any way.

Still running Windows 7? I mean, I liked it, too, but 10 is just fine.

And I just had another Florida couple, both unmasked. One was checking in while the other was standing behind her coughing nonstop.

Excuse me while I clean my entire lobby and take a bath in Lysol.

"I'm Nicole Perez. Go infect yourself, Miami."

I saw on the news last night that it's actually contagious up to 30 feet, and hangs around for a long time in enclosed spaces.

Put a fan behind you pointed towards the door.

at the station I work for - we moved most of the people off-site. reporters and their photographers work on their beat, traffic and production work from home. anchors and meteorologists were working from home, but we brought some of them back slowly.  producers work mostly remotely. the only people on the building are the ones that really can't work remotely - engineering, directors, and a handful of people in the newsroom.

but TV people aren't too bright. trust me on that. if somebody in a newsroom comes down with COVID, everyone's going to get it

Yep. Basically everyone will now believe in herd immunity.

The parallel does not reflect well upon the American people.
