  1. Coronavirus
    Went to the local dollar to pick up a bag of dog food - yes I was wearing PPE mask. While checking out I told the lady they should have plexiglass between them and the customer. The lady told me dollar store would not buy the glass, and she did not care if she caught it. I almost said...
  2. Coronavirus
    Several weeks ago scientist were predicting we would level off at around 2,400 deaths in a single day. From there the death rates were suppose to decline. It is obvious those predictions were wrong as here we are weeks later and the death rates continue to go up. Is anyone still seeing those...
  3. Coronavirus
    Watching and reading the news it appears everything revolves around Coronavirus testing, why? I feel we are being led to believe that if a certain percentage of the population is tested, then everything will be ok. Do we not realize testing is a single snapshot in time? Just because X number...

    https://www.legitgov.org/WHO-Pushed-Draconian-Lockdown-Rules-were-Followed-Dr-Fauci-and-Dr-Birx-Ruin-US-Economy I think it's time to say goodbye to the WHO. And I don't mean the band or the Dr.
  5. Coronavirus
    When I first started with cleaning hands back in March they were cracked and bleeding. Now I wear glove most of the time and only clean when the gloves are off. Hands are much better.
  6. Coronavirus
    Went to the local corner store to get gas for a fishing trip tomorrow. At the store were two parents and their two children. I am going to guess the children were both below the age of 10. We have a county order that says only one family member in the store at a time. Copy of the order was...
  7. Coronavirus
    What kind of alternate reality do managers and upper management live in? Europe alone hit 100,000 dead, and the worlds largest retailer finally tells employees to wear mask. Then again, didn't the CDC say wearing mask in public did not help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Why do companies...

Even catching the...
  9. Coronavirus
    Why aren't companies providing employees with PPE? If an employee gets sick with Coronavirus, I wonder if workers comp could be held responsible? Even hospitals are not providing nurses with N95 mask. The excuse, the CDC has not recommended medical providers use N95 mask. Went by a big box...
  10. Coronavirus
    The Coronavirus curve seems to be flattening, so hopefully we can get back to being paranoid preppers, yet again. What does concern me is how many people will attend Easter and Passover services. The curve looks to be flattening, then boom, in 2 - 3 weeks we could be an explosion of cases from...
  11. Coronavirus
    I'm starting to see and hear a lot of ugly sounding sentiments regarding any non medical person having or wearing a medical grade mask. I'm in a Facebook group where I regularly hear "not N95s, those are/should be for first responders!". I'm in CA so masks are getting to be commonplace here, and...
  12. Coronavirus
    Looking for an alterative to N95? This is what I am doing - order a cotton mask off Ebay that has a pouch for a filter. The filter will be a shop towel. https://www.businessinsider.com/homemade-mask-using-hydro-knit-shop-towel-filters-better-2020-4 What I did, I got on Ebay and ordered two...
  13. Coronavirus
    I have a confession to make. I have been going through my backpacks looking for empty or near empty hand sanitizer bottles so I can refill them with my own homemade hand sanitizer. In a way I feel ashamed that I did not have cases of hand sanitizer stockpiled, but then again, who thought we...
  14. Coronavirus
    Can we start a thread on where to find in stock items such as Lysol spray, hand sanitizer, and other stuff like this. I've burned the internet up and haven't found much in stock ready to ship, Maybe someone here has a lead on where to buy. I'll start with what I have found DAB Products has...
  15. Coronavirus
    My wife and I have been experimenting with making homemade hand sanitizer. We had a bottle of stuff that said aloe vera gel, but it was really a lotion. The result was a runny homemade hand sanitizer. The thicker stuff, for example Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel in the squeeze...
  16. Coronavirus
    I wonder if the COVID 19-infected person in northern California could have been infected by a contaminated package or letter delivered to his or her home. Does anybody know if public-health officials are exploring this possibility?
  17. Coronavirus
    Given the deep states penchant for ultimate control, anyone even the least bit curious? Not to mention how it affects the market and supply chain... Sure did rein in the Hong Kong protests... Ultimate control at all costs? Flame away...
  18. Coronavirus
    Disinfecting incoming mail of Coronavirus OK, we all know about the Coronavirus. Looks to be hyper-contagious. I'm prepped, of course. I could quarantine the place for months. Plenty of water/food/fuel/sanitary supplies in stock. But it occurs to me that the virus could be carried inside...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Question for the more serious preppers and long term planners that already have supplies to survive the first year (food, water, shelter, safety) do you have medications, specifically antibiotics, to keep away the chance of infection related deaths? I read that even today 5 out of every 100 kids...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Mods - feel free to move this if appropriate. I was reading through the threads and also the disease management in Pakistan with the recent floods and thought I would find a short and readable piece on that topic. I found the following, printed and will laminate it to put with my other...
