1/ Love . @tntradioempire, but listen boys: NOBODY puts tequila in the relief-pitcher spot.
Listen live, online, via streaming-& catch them on The Doctors soon!
We covered ALL #COVID19 because this country is an epidemiologist's nightmare. Please see the thread.
3/ The . @CDCgov estimates at least 11K have been exposed-& likely more, given lack of contact tracing + people's unwillingness to admit symptoms.
This CAN be minimized by wearing a mask at all times, distancing, etc.
It is NOT risk free. https://www.theday.com/article/20200920/NWS13/200929966
4/Overall, our #COVID numbers are getting much worse.
In the spring, we had just 6-12 states with 1000+ new positive cases; on 10/15, we had 25 states hit that threshold.
This is not just "more testing"-more testing should = less cases.
It's a failure of us to act appropriately.
6/ IF YOU ARE INSIDE, #WearADamnMask!
There is no such thing as a "socially distanced" event: SARS-CoV-2 doesn't care if you're 6ft away from the unmasked person.
Your ventilation is not better than the presidential debate that infected dozens. https://twitter.com/trishgreenhalgh/status/1300086990709362693?s=20
7/Let me repeat this again: if you are with anyone not in your household, you need to be wearing a mask, indoors or outdoors.
Our laxity with this has allowed this surge to happen.
Countries w/strict policies now have more freedom than we do.

8/ OH-and by the way: the . @CDCgov has issued updated guidance on what is "close contact:" it is now being <6ft for >=15 minutes *within 24hrs* of a someone who was positive. https://twitter.com/DrEricDing/status/1319018336026578944?s=20
12/ Also: please stop shaming the people who do speak up when feeling ill or worried about exposure.
Coaches, teachers, parents, ADULTS: set a better example for our kids.
This public health crisis is more impt than a game.
Don't pressure kids to lie or hide symptoms.
13/ Also: please don't get mad at the scientists & public health experts.
We are exhausted. We are tired. We are trolled, name-called, attacked.
But we are still trying to *save lives* & save this country.
Get mad at officials who don't listen to science.
And #vote
