« Why we can feel good about living in Salem during the COVID-19 pandemic | Main | Oregon forecasted to have 469 COVID-19 deaths by August »

I've read most of this and think it's good advice. Also vaping can be added to the problems attached with smoking. I'd like to see studies on those who get seriously ill or die and whether they vape or smoke as it might explain the younger ones-- or not. We also decided to add Zinc to our supplements as Zicam always helped with shortening colds.

We are staying away from people other than grocery shopping, which has to be done if someone isn't overstocking. It changed our plans on coming back to Oregon this summer, which seemed sensible to avoid travel and where we have this Tucson home to be. We were already planning a garden but we are going to grow more since we will be here to tend it. Our son is managing the Oregon ranch. Nothing like I planned or even wanted but it is what it is.

And now I read in the Statesman Urinal that the U.S. went through a similar pandemic in 1918 and lost 675,000 people:
Wouldn't one think we should be better prepared after that experience?
Apparently, our short term memory serves well as population control.

skyline, a lot of us did know about that pandemic. My grandmother lost her brother in it with a powerful family story to go with it. I think we thought we could deal with it as we did with polio, etc. Viruses are cleverer than us it appears.

For some reason, if I don't type in my info, it doesn't work here... I love the internet world...
