I am now Two for Two.. I replaced all of my House Filters with ones that kill viruses ( Study showed that Virus spreads through A/C). I also since March have lost 35 pounds, bringing me to an BMI of 31.6 from 36.6. Science is awesome.

Do anything you want outside. 

Don't fuggin be around people inside for more than a few minutes. 

Wear a mask to the grocery and any other needed shopping. 

 

If everyone did these three simple things this thing would go away entirely in a month.

I don’t know if it would go away entirely but we sure as hell would be in a lot better shape as a country. Once a safe vaccine (hopefully) is out then we are gonna have to fight with people to take it. The stupidity never ends in this country.

Probably not entirely, but certainly managed down to the point that contact tracing would have a fighting chance. Contract tracing really isn't all that useful for the population bad a whole when the virus is widespread.

My daughter woke up with a fever, body aches, sore throat. Turns out she came in contact with a friend of hers last week that had been sick. however, her parents never told us, had just said she was "grounded". 

So I call today and the soonest we can get her tested is on Thursday. Then it will be 6 days for the results to come back. 

In other words, there is no useful testing available to us. Having results 10 days after showing symptoms isn't real helpful. 

 

This is the best we can do as a country?

Yeah, ten days later is too late. Embarrassing. It’s almost like there has been a deliberate attempt to sabotag......ERRRR slow down testing to decrease the numbers

Yep, that is the way it is around most of the country. Unless, you are rich and have faster ways to test. The Government and multiple municipalities are working hard everyday to make it faster, hang in there.

I would say maybe travel to another county, to get tested, maybe it is not as bad? I dunno? I have seen it take average 2-5 Days, worse is 10.

Yes and it has been proven in other states and countries. But the good news is despite American "Rugged individualism" cases have peaked and deaths are predicted to peak in a week. No idea what we will look like in six months.
