Did I miss it? It just dawned on me, I haven't seen a single

PSA on Covid-19. Not a single commercial for folks that donít watch news or press conferences. Did I miss them?

I know I haven't seen any from the government. Never thought of it but the government should be
running public service announcements for us people that can't stand to listen to Trump.

tonight watching prime time shows. There was one saying if you have mild cold-like symptoms that you normally wouldnít go to the hospital for, continue that standard and save the space for emergency patients.

From Donald Trump saying all the things to do, wash hands, call doctor before going in, all the normal stuff, looks like it was made from CDC stuff. I tossed it.

about social distancing with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx.

I also saw some local ads to stay home and be safe, not sure which local affiliate.

16. Irony. The Drs. Fauci and Birx stand shoulder to shoulder

during the task force pressers. There have been as many as 15 standing behind Chump as he's bloviating. Social Distancing, indeed.

Here's today's with a smaller group:

15. I saw one during This is Us

It was just text w/facts & figures about who is most vulnerable and a link to the government website about the coronavirus. IMO it may be counterproductive because it could make people outside those groups feel less vulnerable and less likely to cooperate w/social distancing.

Going off memory, but it was surprising that so many were so young.

26. I see them OFTEN on my local cable channels, but...

... not even close as often when I switch back to my local over-the-air (antenna) channels.

I donít understand why itĎs different. People who canít afford cable donít deserve the warnings?

I only recently subscribed to Spectrum cable again. I dropped cable for awhile after Trump won the electoral college, angry at cable news broadcasts in particular for giving him constant attention.

43. I must have bad timing.

Iíve not seen them on cable or local stations. Of course the local news covers it. I guess I was just expecting something like Smokey the bear or that dog to come out of retirement and warn the public 🙂

31. A great many videos are on YouTube, including several series....

made by professional organizations, including the CDC. Most are well made and quite informative.

Go to YouTube's home page, several should be shown: https://www.youtube.com/

Have no idea how these are being pushed into social media, but many should be IMO......
