Updating The Defense

Masks are very important and some Trumpanzees are still knocking it. However Social Distance may be even more effective than masks. You are by yourself in the middle of a Baseball Park without a mask. You have a 99.99% chance of not getting the virus. In a basketball Park, it may slip to 99.98%. But most people will begin to understand that the effectiveness can vary with the distance. So since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is generally recommend to stay at least 6 feet away from others even if you are wearing a mask. This when possible, even if you—or they—do not have any symptoms. Social distancing is especially important for people who wish to establish a dance environment.

"Social dancers now have much time to reflect on what is truly of value in life, what gives meaning to our lives, and set our priorities on the basis of that."

Spread happens when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, and droplets from their mouth or nose are launched into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs. Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, social distance is an important factor, even if you—or they—do not have any symptoms. Take care, be careful.

"WalkThrough Paradise" by Melveen Leed.

The World has increasingly adopting the use of cloth face masks much more than the US. The latest science affirms that cloth face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 that could reduce the spread of the disease, particularly when used universally within communities. There is increasing evidence that cloth face coverings help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. We are not defenseless against COVID-19,  cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”

“Social dancers believe that we cannot erase the past. We cannot even change it.

But sometimes life offers us the opportunity to get it right.”
