I don't buy that there's only a 0.0001% risk. Where did that number come from? I leave my home a lot... groceries, outdoor cocktails (downwind and 10 feet from friends), golf course every day, walks, bicycle rides, a take out burrito today from Casa que Pasa and for gas. All calculated risks. It's sort of fun to know... that the next time you reach for the gas pump handle you'll think of good ol' DMM.
Viral load matters quite a bit, the pumps are outside, and a bunch of other factors, including that I have a bottle of hand sanitizer in my car.
Because, again, 0.000001% may as well be 1%.
Why do you ever leave your house if you're not willing to risk 0.0001% chance of anything happening?
With great empathy, I've thought a lot about all the people who cannot stay at home, and how at-risk they are every day.
I have thoughts in that regard, but . . . .
We also heard from one of our Florida neighbors yesterday. She and her 85-ish mother, who lives her, tested positive.
They are not deny-ers, but made some bad choices on their drive down from Wisconsin, stopping to see relatives along the way like normal.
Now that I think about it, when we ran our business, we did shows that 1000s of people attended. So, that would not be happening.
But, I totally understand that some people have to put themselves at risk every day, and be put in situations that they are not in control of.
It's a shame that it's that way.
