  1. 40.3f. stove back on. [emoji849]
  2. we're fuked up here. what's the problem with opening restaurants now with broad seating and masks? Why wait till June. Same with small business shops. If HD and Walmart can control the number of people in at any one time, so can the small shops. just thinking of the devastation that's coming to seacoast towns like PWM, Bar Harbor, Belfast, Camden, the list is long.
  3. not all restaurants can do this though.
  4. This kinda blows. After nearly 6 down days, yesterday's deaths were right back up there
  5. IDK, I just filled out the forms on the site and it it asked which Quest site I wanted to go to. No referral needed. I'm not doing it, but wanted to check it out.
  6. Is anyone forking over $119 for the Quest Covid antibody test?
  7. didn't they retract a PR last week about being underpowered?
  8. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm How can the flu deaths have such a wide range: 24,000 – 62,000
  9. There are a lot of weekend warriors that come up then go back home on Sundays, so there will be "some" business from them, but overall we kinda are fooked. The small businesses are the life blood up here. No cruise ships this summer, bars can't open till July. As far as downtown PWM, it's going to be brutal and tough to recover. While I favor a staged approach, some of the gov's guidelines make no sense. I believe restaurants and small businesses should be able to open May1 with the same strict requirements that are already being proposed for June/July. Many of these business owners can't wait another week much less 1 or 2 months.
  10. I don't why I thought we were behind. Been losing track of things
  11. With all the covid stuff, sort of lost track of some things like leaf out. For almost May, we've got none yet. Amy down in SNE?
  12. ME gov says lockdown to May 31. Let the protests begin
  13. Nothing in life is 100% safe
  14. No thanks to the cdc adding a few more symptoms to the list.
  15. I know. And it's upper management mostly. I don't understand why they won't. Inconvenience, they have no regard for anyone else, other? Even if the state mandated it, they still won't comply. I feel like I am doing my duty and they should too.
  16. My wife's flying to LA next week to see her Mom. She hasn't been on a plane in 5 wks and she needs to see her mom, so off she goes
  17. Yeah, I heard that this morning. Imagine the folks in Aroostook.
  18. I was starting to think they'll have to have a lottery system on the weekends to get into restaurants and bars, otherwise waiting in line to get into a place due to limited seating, no thanks. Might as well stay home. It's one thing to wait in line for groceries or HD, Lowes, but other establishments not so much.
  19. Nah, there was one guy who lied about having Covid and we shut down for a week. He was fired. So far, nobody has gotten clinically sick, which makes it all the more difficult walking around this place not knowing who could have it and for how long. I was never a huge germaphobe before this, but I'm not sure when I'll feel comfortable not wearing a mask every time I come to work. It would be middle of July and there will still be that possibility that if you let your guard down, you could get it. I'm not living in fear, and I'm slowly coming around, but it's mentally challenging.
