    My wife works for a dental office and they are now being asked to re-use mask. And for people that work in mouths that is not good. Hopefully the state will step in and force them to shut down. She wont get paid, but they absolutely do not need to be open. My wife is off today anyway. I suspect if they try to make them work tomorrow, her ….and a few of the dentist, will refuse.

    But it does look like the state governments are slowing getting things shut down. and that's good news

    How are y'alls local governments addressing this with their functions and employees? My government (which is also my employer) hasn't done much other than cancelling public gatherings, parks & rec, and closing our Senior Center and After-school program.
    I have contact with probably 30-50 people a day, and my staff probably sees more than that (I oversee Planning, Building, Code Enforcement, and Historic Preservation) . Yet - we are being told we have to function as normal. It is somewhat disconcerting when you so many unknown interactions.

    Dentists offices will only be allowed to work on emergencies - no routine procedures. They will keep a very minimal staff (1 dentist, maybe a tech, and admin). They will see 1 patient at a time. Other medical offices (eye, GP, etc.) will do the same. I am hopeful that restaurants, movie theaters, etc. will be closed. We'll see.

    As far as I can tell we have only closed the parks and public gatherings like you said. But I haven't seen anything official.

    Is this an official order yet? My wife was told trump recommended it, but it was just a recommendation. But she hasn't actually heard from her boss yet (she's off today ), so maybe she just hasn't gotten word yet.

    I think the Governments are doing a good job doing what they can. State and Federal. They started too slow, and that's hurt. But I think they're figuring it out now and trying to be as proactive as possible. However - the people totally SUCK at doing their part. The Government can only do so much, and at some point the people have to help. Or we could always declare marshal law I guess.

    It's coming tonight or tomorrow from the Governor's office.

    What type of mask/respirator? What is meant by re-use?

    Stay home if you can everyone
    You haven't triggered me (with the exception of not understanding the point of the Boy Who Cried Wolf; I'm incredibly triggered by stupidity and would never have the patience to be a teacher), you are just annoying a lot of people on two different boards. If Elitedawgs had a downvote, I'm sure you'd be the downvote option here too. You're basically just a troll but a sadder version of one b/c you seem to actually think you have been doing something other than make the board less readable.

    Yeah, ours isn't doing much. Basically, we were told if anyone starts showing signs send them home for quaratine and testing... My response was if they are showing symptoms already then it's too late. They've probably already spread the infection. I even offered a staggered staffing plan with a sterilization policy between shifts so that all departments could continue working. Not interested.

    I will ask her, I'm not sure what type. Whatever dental hygienist use. I am not sure how often they change them out, I assume after each patient since you get blowback in your face when working. I'll double check with her

    Are you seriously trying to stroke your own ego right now?

    You're one to talk about trying to find a gotcha moment. That's laughable.

    On Friday and over the weekend all of social media was flooded with post about it being a media thing or a political thing or overreaction.

    Not seeing as many today.

    Saw a lot of people talking about the shut downs and closures being bad.....today I'm starting to see them share info on social distancing.

    So we are seeing a lot of 180 flips since Friday. Which is great great great news. Thankfully people are understanding.

    Really good to see the urgency that seems to have taken place over the last 24 hours

    I went to the dentist yesterday and they did a screening on me (questionnaire, temp check) and then made me wait in my car until they were ready for me. And made me wash my hands when I got inside. My daughter was with me and they wouldn't even let me bring her in; she had to sit in the car the whole time.

    yeah my wife said they are taking temps at the one she is at before they come in. I believe they have someone literally outside the door doing it.

    It means not grabbing a new mask before each patient. I think we as a country have like less than 2 weeks of masks available at the rate we should be using them.

    Without government intervention right now hospitals, airlines, banks, the service industry, etc... would all fail during this pandemic. 100's of millions of people would lose jobs. We have to have some level of regulation to protect the integrity of the system. That's what some people refuse to acknowledge despite it being an absolute truth. And this pandemic is proving that to once again be 1000% accurate.
