Mostly. :lol:

It's all such a clusterfuck. I still get anxious because the situation in the states is getting worse and I know you live in one of the currently hardest-hit states. How are they handling it?

New cases in Pittsburgh are now officially in the hundreds every day. Pennsylvania as a whole had over 1k new cases two days ago. The NY Times just ran this article called Pittsburgh Seemed Like a Virus Success Story. Now Cases Are Surging.

The 30th Birthday Party was a drunken shit show full of white girls hugging and breathing all over me, telling me how much they love me. I was asked by three people if I wanted to try their drink. I had enough when everyone started spilling their drinks all over the place and someone started talking about how mad they were that they had to wear a mask when they went to a casino. Casino girl said, and I quote, “our antibodies are changing every day so it’s really not bad.” That was my cue to get my shoes.

One of the wedding ceremonies I talked about in the previous post opted not to have the wedding party (to which I am a part of) present, but is still holding out for a summer 2021 huge reception. The baby shower I mentioned was canceled after myself and a few of the couple's family members expressed concern. Both of these events are now live streams with only immediate family present, I am still working from home with no sign of that changing any time soon, and I don't have any more in-person obligations until the holidays. So, less stress, but still stress.

The wedding ceremony that I officiated for yesterday had 10 people in attendance. Everyone was masked and socially distanced as best as possible, and I felt really good about it.

Florida just recorded the single-highest daily count of Coronavirus cases out of ANY state today. 15,300 new cases. But, don't worry, everyone, Disney World is open! It is such a summary of how stupidly this country is handling things.

Wow.

And wow.

I'm sorry Rob. I've more to say but fear in typing it some of my frustration at the petty-type denialism some people live and breathe now would come off as disconcerting.

I wish you well. Really, really well. Stay away from Florida.

By well, health, as I wish us all so much. Stay safe RJ and Twoism.

I live in Massachusetts which was managing the 'rona pretty well up to this point. Perhaps too well. Where I live is being flooded with tourists coming from everywhere, Florida in particular. People from out of state are supposed to self-quarantine for 14 days, but yeah, that's not happening. It's only a matter of time before there's a spike. I went to the beach last week and it was an ugly scene. People everywhere. Meh.

I think that the US with the Trump administration won't really take action until people start panicking. Only when there are bodies in the streets will they take it seriously.
Sorry if I'm too grim but this is the feeling I get from your country (no offense).

Seems like it's being reported that antibodies (and presumably resistance) runs out after about 3 months, so I guess we're in for the long haul till they work out a vaccine if that's true.

Source for the antibody report? I haven't heard that anywhere.

Two vaccines are getting the fast track status from the FDA! News!
The companies said they expect to start a large trial with up to 30,000 participants as soon as later this month, upon regulatory approval.

Friend who threw the 30th birthday shitshow invited me to a going-away party for one of her friends. Stressed out about how stupid people are being, then declined it quickly.

Hope all is well over there. We have to get through next Wednesday in one piece here in the states. You can feel the tension in the air here.
