Airports not even checking people!!

A friend just got home today from spending 2 months in Thailand. Flew back to Seattle from Korea and they just let him right through customs! He said none of the custom people were wearing masks or gloves either!! Unreal!! And this is while he got off the plane wearing a mask!!

1. Well, that's great.

Considering the deaths went up from 2 to 9 between yesterday and today (in the Seattle area).

6. Great. Customs and TSA putting their hands on people and baggage from all over the world and not

using any precautions. Now that you mention it, TSA checkpoints at international airports is a great way to spread the virus all over the place.

8. Are they doing a little voodoo dance to ward off the virus?

or just a wing and a prayer?

9. A judge in our community just returned from Italy

on Sunday - i.e. well into crisis time there. I don't know if they checked her at the airport - BUT - she is self-quarantined on her own initiative because she got a text from her daughter (living in France - who met with them in Italy) who is now ill with fever, chills, etc. She reached out to the board of health (my spouse is on the board), they scrambled to find guidance - because they had been given none by the state or the CDC.

A half day later, they recommended she self-quarantine for 14 days from their last contact with their daughter (not their last day in Italy).

When she emerges6 days from now (8 days from being in Italy), as a member of the legal community who teaches students who go through her courtroom (and courthouse) daily, I will likely be one handshake away from exposure.

10. Trump and Pence will blame states for failing, even when screening incoming

International passengers is a federal function with the states having no constitutional role.

11. No questions asked at BC/WA border either

No questions asked by border guards crossing either way- I remember during SARS/Ebola/Zika outbreaks we were asked were we had been and if wed had any symptoms.

I cant imagine this will go on like this much longer...at least on the Canadian side of things.

13. This is just unbelievable!

I don't expect them to start shutting down entire cities at this point, but it's like they aren't even TRYING! There is no coordinated system in place for taking ordinary precautions. You would almost think they want people to get sick and die.
