Thanks, yes results at 6 this morning, all clear, PHEW!

The two people that were looking after the Mum, one is in her early 20s and is displaying no symptoms at all, the other is late 40s and just feels 'a bit fluey', the man who caught it is 51 and has had nausea, headaches and aching muscles but only for a couple of days and is out of bed already (but still staying in one room in the house until clear).

We're just mystified as to how the man caught it, we thought he may have been tempted to give his Mum one last hug (who wouldn't be tempted!) but he swears he didn't.

So now we're tracking his movements and contacts over the past week or so and asking them all to get tested, someone he was near obviously has it.

Same going on here:

Cuomo: Most new NY coronavirus hospitalizations are from people who stayed home

Restaurants & bars are turning out to be big spreaders here.  I also suspect incoming mail, deliveries, and groceries.

I think we've been in the 2nd spike since the 2nd week of May. Going by JHU data it was clear a month ago that it was on the up again.

All the reliable experts are saying this is not a 2nd wave. Reopening just caught, boosted, and extended the 1st wave.  That, AND, it has now filtered out into the countryside from the earlier, easy-to-transmit urban areas.

>mail & groceries

Nobody wants to believe their deliveries are potentially contaminated because that adds a shitload of work to staying isolated.
