Day 63-SIP-Fun Again?

The big news today is Illinois’ move toward phase three COVID-19 policy. The news is buzzing about things opening up, mainly restaurants. The hook is that they may allow only outdoor seating and must provide social distancing. That means in Frankfort we will have about a half a dozen restaurants available for some thirty six tables. Outdoor venues in our town are available, but in very limited numbers even when there is not need for distancing. Regardless, plans are being formulated by businesses for opening again.

Frankfort has a rather unique venue just outside the village limits which has become a popular place over the last ten years. CD&ME opened as a place to have catered events. Realizing that the business of catering large events leaves them with a very expensive venue 5-6 days a week they dreamed up various ways to make it busier. One of the things it has become popular for is their Thursday night concerts through the summer. They have several buildings that open up around a beautiful patio area and several outdoor stages. You pay to get in and then buy drinks or food to your hearts content.

Rumor has it that next Thursday, 4 June 2020 they will open with a parking lot concert. Limit 100 cars parked in every other parking slot. A band will play and a food vendor will have a rolling cart with food available. Drinks are BYOB. Cars will be limited to four occupants. That can make for four hundred people in one big party, or rather one hundred separate car parties. What ever, the town is buzzing with anticipation. I just want to be able to get a haircut.

Meanwhile the COVID-19 confirmed cases in Will Township is still at 104 and growing. The virus lives among us. I am curious to know just how this virus spreads so quickly and what mechanism does it use to jump. I am sure a lot of scientists would also like to know the answers. A new report today suggests that the virus doesn’t spread from surfaces as easily as we thought. That points more strongly toward human to human contact, but how does it do it? I can see the obvious like coughing and sneezing, but I haven’t seen another human coughing or sneezing, no matter where I am.

If anyone spreads this thing it will be health care workers who touch people while attending to them, Taking temperatures, blood pressure, swabbing, drawing blood, etc. What I don’t see is how normal day to day activity of shopping is dangerous. Another thing I have trouble understanding is why is it so much dangerous in nursing homes? What are they doing in those places? I’d also like to know the death rate for people in th seventy-eighty age group that are not in nursing homes.

Even though I am in my eighties, I don’t feel or think like I’m eighty, in fact I feel like fifty, so does that makes me less vulnerable? Nature is an amazing process. If we ever figure it out we will be transporting from planet to planet with Star Trek’s transporter beam.

I just want to get a haircut.
