-is Tipping allowed?

;)

Such machines usually have a tilt sensor which does not allow them to operate if they do not remain upright.

If you have a problem that you have to get off your chest I'm sure that they are great listeners as well.

Gov. Pritzker to Sign Executive Order Ending Illinois’ Stay-at-Home Restrictions

A statewide stay-at-home order went into effect for Illinois on March 21

........

The comments came on the same day most of Illinois, excluding the city of Chicago, entered Phase Three of Pritzker's statewide reopening plan.

Under Phase Three, restaurants are allowed to reopen for outdoor dining as are state parks, non-essential manufacturers and non-essential retailers.

The new executive order, called the Community Recovery Order, still requires limits of groups to 10 people or fewer and mandates other mitigation practices including social distancing and wearing face coverings in public.

Additionally, the governor was expected to extend the state's ban on residential evictions, moratorium on utility shut-offs and suspension on repossession of vehicles to protect people from the "financial challenges COVID-19 has brought on."

While explaining the changes and touting progress made by state health officials in terms of hospitalization and positivity rates, Pritzker acknowledged that the coronavirus is "still out there, and it's still dangerous."..........

On Friday, an additional 1,622 coronavirus cases were reported in Illinois, lifting the number of cases statewide to 117,455 since the pandemic began.

Longer lines for rides, and no parade: Theme parks to open, but will visitors return?

“The last thing you want is someone to say, 'I got coronavirus at Disney,'” one theme park enthusiast said.
 
.........

At Universal’s Orlando parks, guests are encouraged to download an app to cut down on contacts and lines. The app will allow visitors to order food online and then return to collect their meal. Parking will be staggered for groups to avoid crowding.

While Disney has not specified how many people it will allow at its Florida theme parks, the Magic Kingdom in Orlando is the world’s most visited park, attracting 20.8 million visitors in 2018, according to the Themed Entertainment Association’s most recent tally.......

SeaWorld said it would be encouraging digital payments, and ticketing staff would be separated from visitors by plexiglass screens. Maps will also be electronic.

For now, new ticket sales for Disney World are "temporarily paused,"............

A great incentive to follow current sanitation and distancing rules. This piece serves as a reminder of what a tough procedure it is. Those in the medical field certainly will know this.
The paragraphs below were written by a nurse who works with ventilators:

Here you go folks... for those people who don't understand what it means
to be on a ventilator but want to take the chance of going back to
work....

For starters, it's NOT an oxygen mask put over the mouth while the patient
is comfortably lying down and reading magazines. Ventilation for Covid-19
is a painful intubation that goes down your throat and stays there until
you live or you die.

It is done under anesthesia for 2 to 3 weeks without moving, often upside
down, with a tube inserted from the mouth up to the trachea and allows you
to breathe to the rhythm of the lung machine. The patient can't talk or
eat, or do anything naturally - the machine keeps you alive.

The discomfort and pain they feel from this means medical experts have to
administer sedatives and painkillers to ensure tube tolerance for as long
as the machine is needed. It's like being in an artificial coma.

After 20 days from this treatment, a young patient loses 40% muscle mass,
and gets mouth or vocal cords trauma, as well as possible pulmonary or
heart complications.

It is for this reason that old or already weak people can't withstand the
treatment and die. Many of us are in this boat ... so stay safe unless you
want to take the chance of ending up here. This is NOT the flu.

Add a tube into your stomach, either through your nose or skin for liquid
food, a sticky bag around your butt to collect the diarrhea, a foley to
collect urine, an IV for fluids and meds, an A-line f to monitor your BP
that is completely dependent upon finely calculated med doses, teams of
nurses, CRNA’s and MA’s to reposition your limbs every two hours and
lying on a mat that circulates ice cold fluid to help bring down your 104
degree temp.

Anyone want to try all that out? Stay home. Stay safe and well!

After more than a week of widespread protests in Georgia, the state's public health department announced plans
 
to set up test sites for demonstrators to screen for cases of the COVID-19.

CDC: Some Americans are misusing cleaning products — including drinking them

— in effort to kill coronavirus

".......Thirty-nine percent had misused the cleaning products, and one quarter reported “an adverse health effect that they believed was a result” of the products.

Of the respondents, 19% said they had used bleach on food, 18% said they had applied household cleaners to their skin, 10% said they had misted themselves with disinfectant sprays, 6% had inhaled vapors from the cleaners,

and 4% had drunk or gargled diluted bleach solutions, soapy water, or other disinfectants.........

This will surprise precisely no one, but the new COVID-19 data the Trump Admin just released on nursing homes
appears to be garbage.
 
Local CT coverage: "The numbers at best paint half the picture and are far less accurate than available state figures"
