Mitigation efforts require the cooperation of a large percentage of the general public. It's Pennsylvania. Good luck with that.

It was 2600+ Yesterday.

Hey there! I may live in Pennsylvania now, but I was originally raised in Wisconsin...

... and I agree, the staggering amount of idiots I've witnessed in both states suggests we're farked.

So I will say in the limited time I've been out going to the store and whatnot I'd say even in central rural PA people are at least mostly complying with masks.

I mean I'm sure 80% of them voted for Trump by the signs out in the yards, but at least they aren't actively trying to kill me personally with disease.

Granted I only leave the house to go get groceries or a pizza so my same size of places where masks might be worn may be giving me a false sense of security over how many people are wearing them.

Also depends on how they're wearing the masks - they're pointless when worn incorrectly.

A good portion of the central part of the state is convinced masks are a worthless joke. Mission accomplished someone.

CSB: I was in my local Giant (supermarket) and I couldn't help but say "for God sakes, just put on a damn mask" to a couple (with an infant)....the woman of the pair calmly said " we don't participate in that stuff".
I replied "You mean you can simply opt out of infectious diseases? That's FABULOUS "

PA farker here.

We will, soon enough, be in for a world of hurt. My better half lost her father last Saturday. In the interim, it had come to light that both her mother and father had tested positive for covid. After the dust had settled from a whirlwind week of horror, a cluster of 15 confirmed cases (myself included) had sprung up from one irresponsible fark. One dead, two currently in the hospital.

I returned home today, after making sure my better half's mother had cleared the worst of her symptoms. My neighbors were throwing a party, some thirty people deep. No masks. No social distancing.

A world of hurt might be an understatement.

Mega Steve: But why male models?


Think about it!  Male models are genetically constructed to be perfect hospital utilization rate forecasters.  They're in peak physical conditioning.  They can gain entrance to the most secure hospital records rooms in the world.  And most important of all, models don't think for themselves.  They do what they're told.
 
2020-12-02 11:25:22 PM  
What's new?  Two years ago they put my mom in a hallway.  Hospitals are always cutting corners.

If the state house and senate weren't festering with Republicans we could put some better enforcement out there. Instead they try to undermine the health efforts.

I'm sorry to hear about all that. I think by xmas things will be looking grim in many states. I'm in Utah and it's not looking good at all. One hospital stated their ICU is functionally full, and in general hovering between 80-90% capacity now. We had another 4k new cases today and the Thanksgiving bump will be coming along shortly. Xmas might be hell if the hospitals do become overrun in the coming weeks.

And yet, we still have schools mostly in-person with athletics going on. Farking fantastic pandemic management there.

Its only because the store won't let them in without the mask.

I posted graphics here months ago and told you all the critical #to watch out for.. but most nobody cared and they got more funny than smarts.  I don't say this with ",hahaha" level snark, but I told you so. I told you all to share them and tell and warn people. Not that it would have mattered, but at least you could have tried.

It will be far worse than the idiots on the news (Sanjay Poopta. Celine Flounder) will tell you they might know medicine. But they fail miserably at math, etc.

Thanks.  Pittsburgh-adjacent, myself.

It was a friend of the family who had come over recently to help with some repairs around their house. They were afraid to bring in someone they didn't know, so they reached out to someone they thought they could trust.

He failed to tell my FIL, and aparently several others, that he had recently taken a covid test, and was mildly symptomatic at the time. He assumed it was just a cold.

That guy needs Mike Tyson to go apeshiat on his balls.
I hope everything turns out well for your family. My parents are going through a roof replacement and the guy doing it is coming in from out of state. Considering that state is Alabama there's pretty good odds he's got it. Parent's probably will manage, but I would hate for them to give it to my grandparents.

Nope.  I see the opposite.

- Worn-out masks so loose you can see teeth
- The ubiquitous mask-under-nose, extremely popular among the over-50 set
- Masks of whole families coming off the instant they're stepping across the threshold of a store, still among and passing other people (and vice-versa; not putting them on until reaching the actual doors or even the (crowded) entryway - and having discussions there for 15 minutes)
- Lining up shoulder-to-shoulder when you don't have to, like when waiting for a store to open

The general consensus seems to be just enough compliance that they don't get ejected from stores, but otherwise "outdoors is 100% safe no matter what" and "as long as the mask is attached to my head or neck, it counts and you can't throw me out"

My parents had to go into a nursing home 3 months ago (bad fall, worsening disability, no choice).  They're going to die within weeks of being able to survive this bullshiat because people just can't be the slightest bit considerate.  Their last year will be a year of isolation, fear, and hell.  I'm not going to be able to keep my cool about it when that happens.

I see some of that, I think my perspective has been 'huh they aren't screaming my freeeeedoooooooooom!' when I go to the store and that's about as good of a win as I could've expected in the deep heart of Pennsylvania.
