If you are protecting yourself, what exactly are you worried about? It's a serious question. If you're isolated and taking proper precautions, when outside, you not going to get sick. Listen to the professionals, not the media......My wife and I are relatively young with a 10 year old son, and are going into our 3rd week of being totally isolated in our home except to get out for daily exercise and weekly runs to the grocery store.
I did not call you racist. I said....... "These state to state phobias are absolutely no different than racism. One makes broad discriminatory assumptions, based on a single attribute. In this case, a license plate. Shameful."Everyone is pushing an agenda with the information they share here. Even you, Minnewaska. Yesterday, you referred to me as a racist a few pages back in this thread
NY now has 60,000 confirmed cases. If you ignore that some have already recovered and just multiply it by the 10x assumption to get to how many are infected, that is 600,000 out of 19.5 million. That's 3% of the license plate holders.
Further, my friends who are in their ski house, have been there over two weeks. They are definitively not infected. You'd kick them out?????
Sorry you're upset about it, but there are facts and there is fear. Facts were posed above by the Pulmonologist at ground zero in NYC right now. He makes very clear that a six foot perimeter from other people and washing your hands after you've contaminated them will prevent the disease. It's does not matter, whatsoever, who moved in down the street. The consequences are only for those who don't follow this protocol.So I don't know what is driving your agenda Minnewaska, but you seem to be coming down on the side of, everyone just wash their hands and everything will be fine. And in my view, that message is having dire consequences for many of us.
Why would you assume everyone coming to VT to socially distance in their second homes is going to get sick anyway? Seems to me they would be on the more responsible side of the general population, by the fact that they are distancing. Not to mention, they're paying the same property and sales taxes that built those hospitals.
p.s. It's a discussion, there are no agendas. What would an agenda do on a forum anyway?
