This is the UK way.

It sounds like such a square British thing to do.

Are the childrenís parents getting sick from the children in the street? Absolutely.
What about the nurses and doctors and aides, do they have kids? Sure do. What happens when they get sick and pass it on to the old people they take care of? What happens when they get sick and canít care for all the sick people? What happens when they die?

Cant believe itís March 26th 2020 and people here donít realize this yet.

Any of us in BP or CH who believ that on March 26 there is someone who isnt sick with it is delusional. So Having kids outside your house for some fresh air or in back yards is not going to kill anyone. Not promoting socialization or kids playing together. My tenant has a formerly immune compromised child and does not open the door or window. So I dont know what kids are bringing what home in BP or CH that is not already there. Yes the elderly must be locked up regardless.   
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

What you write here is a far cry from

Children? They are not getting sick from children being on the street.

The problem is that your line of reasoning is a slippery slope. It will lead people to a false sense of security, kids going out unsupervised, kids not understanding or complying with social distracting rules, and much greater contagion amongst children which will lead to greater contagion amongst adults who are otherwise sheltering in place and practicing social distancing properly.

Saw today on CNN from a nurse at the Seattle facility saying that the common denominator for all Corona patients was a red eye around the white, round and around (not immediately after the middle part). My son is extremely sick, weak, but he has no red eye, so I guess he has the flu, not the Corona.

I wouldn't rely on a nurse that came up with her own set of coronavirus symptoms.

Got this email from UPS. What exactly does this mean?
Dear Yitzgar,
UPS is committed to operating globally, except where constrained by government restrictions. The Novel Coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented complexities, which have required us to constantly reassess our operations. Our highest priority is to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers.

Suspension of Small Package Service Guarantee

Effective March 26, 2020 and until further notice, we have suspended the UPS Service Guarantee for all shipments to any destination, at all service levels.  As the effects of the Coronavirus impact our infrastructure, we will continue to seek guidance from local and national government entities regarding applicable regulations.  Please continue to visit ups.com's Coronavirus web page for the most up-to-date information regarding the impact of Coronavirus on UPS Small Package services. The UPS Service Guarantee is subject to change. For further details, see the UPS Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service.

Prior to shipping Small Package, please check to see if your recipientís location is open, since business hours may have changed due to local restrictions. If the location is closed, we will hold your Small Package shipment and attempt to complete the delivery at a later date if the receiving location has indicated to UPS that it will reopen within 9 days.  However, if the location is closed indefinitely, UPS will return the package to the sender.

For your convenience with Small Package services, The UPS Store and UPS Access Point locations can provide access to your vital deliveries.  Also, you can sign up for free UPS My Choice service which enables you to provide more specific delivery instructions such as where to leave deliveries, or redirect deliveries to another location, and also provides you with the ability to receive delivery notifications.

 

Suspension of UPS Freight Service Guarantee

In addition, effective March 27, 2020 and until further notice, UPS Freightís Service Guarantee for all Less Than Truckload services from and to all locations is suspended, with the exception of UPS Freight Urgent Services. Please continue to visit the UPS Freight website for the most up-to-date information regarding the impact of Coronavirus on UPS Freight services. Service guarantees are subject to change. For further details, see the UPS Freight LTL Rules Tariff.

Suspension of North American Air Freight Service Guarantee

Finally, effective March 25, 2020, and until further notice, the UPS Service Guarantee is suspended for all North American Air Freight services. Please continue to visit the UPS Supply Chain Solutions website for the most up-to-date information regarding the impact of Coronavirus on UPS Air Freight services. Service guarantees are subject to change. For further details, see the UPS Air Freight Terms and Conditions of Contract.

The University of Miami Hospital has been treating red eye as a symptom since at least last weekend. Possibly much earlier, but I can only verify last weekend.

Did they say it was a required symptom? Or just a symptom. I'm sure not the former.

I do not believe it is a required symptom, just a common enough one that it got out that they were looking for it.
