  1. Consider a military grade mask.
  2. And a plexiglass face shield.
  3. A Hazmat suit can’t hurt.
  4. Considering “enhanced” social distancing: doubling to 12 feet.
  5. Consider face coverings IN your household.
  6. At restaurants, consider drinking through masks and slithering food into your mask.
  7. Consider enhanced social distance with those IN your household.
  8. Consider sanitizing a public shower before entering. Ditto on other public facilities.
  9. Consider sanitizing sidewalk chalk and frisbees to mitigate possible contact spread.
  10. Don’t shake hands, do elbow bumps, or give hugs.
  11. If you wave, wave slowly to minimize air perturbation.
  12. If verbally greeting, don’t yell. Whispering minimizes air perturbation.
  13. Ask guests to leave if they don’t bring face coverings.
  14. If guests without face coverings won’t leave, consider leaving yourself.
  15. Use hand sanitizer like it’s going out of style.
  16. Avoid large gatherings. If possible any gatherings. Consider hunkering alone.

Most important:

Do not listen to what Dr. Anthony Fauci said to 60 minutes in early March:

Fauci: “Right now in the United States people should NOT be walking around with masks.”

60 minutes host: “You’re sure of it because people are listening really closely to this?”

Fauci: “There’s NO reason to be walking around with a mask.”
