    On another note, after 3 weeks I’ve now tested negative for COVID after being positive.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    My comment wasn’t directed at you personally it was aimed at the false reports of 100% capacity. It’s all over the news down here now that the 100% capacity reports weren’t accurate and were an error on TMC’s part which the hospitals in the TMC system had already refuted shortly after the initial report. It just irked me because I was trying to get tested again to see if I was finally negative and I’ve had to wait a week for the results(tomorrow will be 3 weeks since I popped positive) and it’s because the media hasn’t gotten their facts straight before reporting and it’s making people freak out. The Dr that ended up giving me my latest test, said most of the people he’s been testing haven’t had any symptoms they’re just worried and want tested. That’s causing the back log for Regular sick people and those who have tested positive like myself.

    Where’d this come from? The hospitals report something different, and I was just in one of them on Friday and they weren’t even close to being packed. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Somewhat Unrelated I saw this and figured I’d share for a laugh.

    Agreed. It’s hard to read intent through text, and I made a broad statement when it honestly would’ve been easier to be more specific. Sometimes I forget people can’t read my mind. It never got personal or insulting and whether we agree or not, I’ll have those kinds of discussions anytime.

    You do realize this discussion was started on you making a “straw man” argument right? The whole thing about me being upset about people following recommendations which I never actually said. Not to mention we were discussing people freaking out which was what my entire post was about.

    Well what would you call people calling the police on others for not wearing a mask? What about people reporting businesses for opening back up? Creating an $11 million pop up hospital at the tax payer expense at NRG stadium, that never had a patient when it was closed down a couple weeks ago? County judges threatening to throw people in jail or fine them $1000 for not wearing a mask in public while releasing convicted criminals from jail at the same time? Thank god the Texas Governor stepped in before she could really do anything because that’s exactly what the county judge in Houston tried and did do when all this started. I’d say that’s freaking out, if not it’s darn close. I’m not at all upset if you or anyone else wants to wear a mask. I’ve not said a bad thing about anyone that prefers to wear a mask either.

    Who is upset? People having different opinions now makes them upset? Good to know.

    I get that and you do have a point. That’s weird, I guess that just depends on where you live. I can walk into a store right now and get gloves, hand sanitizer, and all that stuff right now. On a side note, to show the ignorance of some of the people in politics. The mayor of Houston was on live tv the other day talking about the importance of wearing masks and wearing them correctly while his mask wasn’t even covering his nose.

    Then they should be taking the proper precautions. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I’m going around sneezing everywhere or walking around stores for no reason. But I use common respect. If I have to sneeze I don’t just cover my mouth with my hand I’ll cover it with my shirt etc stuff like that. But I do that whether there’s a virus or not. That’s what I mean by people need to use common sense. If everyone in the world wants to wear masks then more power to them. I’m not telling anyone to not wear them, I personally won’t. That’s my decision and if I do catch the virus that’s on me, and not on anyone else. Because I got food poisoning and missed a day of work. It’s our company policy right now that if you miss work you have to be tested before coming back to work. edit: Actually just a correction I did wear a mask once and that’s when I had to pick my dad up at the hospital after surgery. If I have to go into a dr office or hospital I will absolutely wear one.

    I was just tested for it a few days ago. The whole world doesn’t and shouldn’t stop because some people are freaking out over this virus. I work in the chemical industry so I still have to go to work everyday. If someone is high risk why would they be out in the first place to where I’d be able to spread it to them? Again as I’ve said before, common sense goes a long way here but no one seems to be using it. If you’re high risk, be responsible for yourself and stay home. Don’t expect everyone else to be responsible for you because you choose to take the risk and go out. Eventually people need to take responsibility for their self instead of expecting everyone else to do it for them. My grandfather is extremely high risk, so he stays home, it’s really not that hard. He does the same thing during flu season too. I’ve always washed my hands a lot and used hand sanitizer a lot before this virus but I haven’t increased it since this all started. Edit: I’m a slight germaphobe just for reference. It’s not like I don’t wash my hands or anything like that. I’m just not concerned about getting the virus because I’m responsible for myself just as everyone else should be too
