It's interesting to play with different scenarios to see what your Covid risk is:

Indeed. According to this, a one night stand with a total stranger is less risky than eating inside a restaurant.

Oh, and going shopping in a grocery store for an hour? According to the risk assessment, that is 100X the acceptable weekly risk.

I'm mostly wondering who spends 60 minutes at the grocery store! Surely that's not the average?

Well, I have to admit putting in the scenario of a one night stand did not occur to me. But good for you, PE, for being prepared.

Yikes. What if every one night stand wears a surgical mask?

I mean, a one night stand is one person in your house sharing your air and a restaurant has dozens of people all maskless (to eat you need to be) and breathing the same air, so it makes sense to me.

Just for Covid. AIDS and STDs not so much.

Basically in a classroom at school it's an extreme risk. Lovely.

Well, risk of covid anyway. I can think of a few other risks in that scenario

Basically itís time, number of people, vaccination status of those people and ventilation.

I thought you had a different preferred term for that item of PPE?

Really? When I tried this scenario for my location, with a surgical mask and vaccinated, average crowding, it came up as 3% of my weekly risk allowance. What were your parameters?

I tried "unmasked" for me and others and "unvaccinated" for me, and crowded, and it was 2x my weekly risk.

We are in a lower transmission area, though.

I will be sharing this tool with my unvaccinated friends, and with my super-cautious vaccinated friends.

plays a key role in that calculator. If you are in an area of high transmission, obviously there is a high risk no matter what the indoor activity.

I just recreated my classroom scenario in my county ( masked, 3 feet, kids not vaxxed) and got 400x weekly risk factor.

Twinmom, blech. Iím sure thatís true for me tooÖ.if not more. I think itís interesting that the grocery store varied so much. Mine was 10 percent.

My 60 min grocery store experience was 4% also. My area has a fairly high vax rate and a mask mandate plus I never shop when it's crowded so that's likely the difference. My highest risk activity is going to church, 50%

Church can be a high risk area. I know of 3 ladies recently exposed at a church when a man nearby had a coughing fit. He claimed he was vaccinated and didn't have CoVid, and of course he wasn't wearing a mask. HE LIED (in church, no less, ) and this past week one of the ladies died.

I've said it before, I can't imagine being a healthcare worker. The past year has been bad enough but to struggle when it no longer has to be this bad why anyone would continue to put their own lives and the lives of their families at risk for those who refuse to help themselves is the ultimate act of un-selfishness.

Iím glad my church requires masks (and is fairly small) but itís still an inside close quarters situation which is a bit scary. I feel fairly confident my vaccination will protect me from serious illness but I worry a lot about unknowingly having it and giving it to my grandchildren.

A friend had a well loved congregation member who died of Covid and 500 people came to his funeraló500!! I canít even imagine being inside with a group that large!

That cartoon is such a good visualization of what so many on the medical profession are going through. And all while being demonized by certain groups.

IMO, it's one of the most powerful images I've seen on Facebook.

My niece-in-law is a nurse now working at home as a case manager in a smaller neighboring county. She is processing more and more CoVid cases each day including children. Thank God, she is able to work from home now since one of her 2 precious daughters has a number of medical issues including asthma. In the beginning she was required to work at the hospital, and her daughter lived with her grandmother as a precaution.
