Headed Out Shopping Today...
The one big trip out of the week. Walmart for things we need for the new office, then got gas, then on to the grocery store. You know, standard stuff.
I had a pull-0ver mask (regular ones don’t seem to want to stay on my ears) and gloves. Yes, I know I really don’t need gloves, but I have them soaked in anti-bacterial spray before I leave the car each time. And besides, gloves keep me from touching my face and constantly adjusting my face mask.
Masks were the normal now in both stores. Very few without them. Social distancing was also well done. Had zero issue anywhere, even with the heat wave coming in.
And then tonight our Governor announced we are going to stage two. And the testing is going nuts here. One site alone can test over 10,000 people a day. There are now at leasts eight public testing sites and anyone who wants to be tested can be, and that’s not counting all the private testing going on with casinos and other businesses.
So gyms, movie theaters, and so on can open on Friday, and casinos and the Strip will open back up on the 4th. But wow is all of it going to be different.
From everything they are doing and the gaming commission and Governor are mandating, I think the safest place in the city will be in a casino. All employees tested all the time, temperature scans for everyone entering, high speed air-flow, required masks of everyone period, (no exceptions) and social distancing. Casinos are not going to risk their licenses or getting shut down again by being careless at this point.
Kris and I will just keep on doing what we are doing. Take out to support our favorite restaurants, masks, and so on. I will add in the gym as I ramp back up my running. But that’s about it.
Going to be interesting to see if people actually get on planes to come here anytime soon. Got a hunch not much of that is going to happen until after a vaccine.
Stay safe out there. This is a long ways from being over.
