Face coverings for all IS a good idea

Now that the under-40s (and many older) are acting "party like it's 1999", there could be a lot of asymptomatic spread.

My fear is that it turns into an iceberg, especially in the fall (e.g. partying students bring it back home during visits, partying teachers spread it to students and then to their families, etc.).

So ANYONE could spread CV to me, so I'll always wear a face covering once I leave home, until at least 2021 ((let's be pessimistic about (1) a vaccine being developed, (2) how much immunity it confers, and (3) how long the immunity lasts)).

1. A guy recently lost his dad and 28 members of his family got Covid.

He said there was no large family gathering but thinks his dad got it from just visoting three family members' households. Unless you live alone you are at risk. Any indoor gatherings, even with family members is risky behavior.

Most people want schools to stay closed until it is safer.
