    Sounds like a bit of a production for a haircut.

    My home town was in the national news for that Great Clips fiasco. Not a single person contracted covid from that hair stylist because she was wearing a mask. And she cut the hair of dozens of people.
    What Great Clips fiasco? Not ringing a bell.

    That's kinda the misconception about this mask stuff. Wearing the masks that are currently available to the general public do not protect you from contracting covid. But they do protect you from catching it from someone that is wearing a mask is positive. When I get my haircuts, the hairstyleist where all wearing makes and they took the took the temp for all employees and guests.
    Having both people in an interaction wearing a mask certainly helps and might protect you but it is far from a guarantee of safety.

    If these numbers don't go majorly upward in the next 2-4 weeks that'd be huge. I feel like the protests are going to supremely **** a bunch of the progress that has been made though.

    I was the first person to call Trump stupid when he was talking about windmills and cancer.

    I agreed with Mr Powders when he said Trump shouldn't make policy in a tweet, when Trump tweeted about bringing home troops.

    there are two that are nothing to do with spelling.

    I'm sure there are millions of people of all sides, races, gender, that agree with this. but that doesn't mean do whatever, when even simply wearing a mask is so easy.

    Texas reported a record number of coronavirus hospitalizations Monday — weeks after Gov. Greg Abbott took the lead among governors in easing social distancing measures to help bring jobs back.

    There are currently 1,935 Covid-19 patients in hospitals across the state, topping the previous hospitalization record of 1,888 patients on May 5, according to new data from the Texas Department of State Health Services.

    Texas was among the first states to relax its statewide stay-at-home order, allowing it to expire April 30 and some businesses to resume operations May 1.

    The coronavirus has infected more than 75,400 people in Texas, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The positivity rate for Covid-19 tests in Texas reached a low of 4.27% toward the end of May but has since jumped to 7.55%, according to the state’s health department.

    While hospitalizations are increasing, there are more than 1,600 open intensive-care beds and more than 5,800 ventilators available for critically ill patients.

    Some infectious disease experts say hospitalization numbers could be a better way to track a state’s reopening performance since it’s more difficult to skew than testing data, which fluctuates depending on how many tests are being run.

If the legislation supports it it can be extended to 30 days. The shelter started here on March 19th and on April 20th things started opening back up. He was actually limited in what he could do by the state constitution.

    I think pretty much everyone knew it would happen, that doesn't mean anything should change.

    People are going to be exposed eventually and the hospitals are not over taxed, and the Governor had no choice but to start re-opening ... I doubt, had he attempted to change the state constitution in March, he would get through that clean.

    Any the of the conservative( or liberal) states that opened early did it wrong - no matter how it ends up looking in hindsight.

    When you're prioritizing money over lives, you're psychotic.

    That's what they did. The numbers have shown that the extra careful states have a better long term economic response to pandemics and the like.

    So....you're saying that any liberal states that opened early didn't do it wrong? Or are you saying that no liberal states loosened restrictions early?
