Here are the official Corona virus guidelines:
- Basically, you can’t leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.
- Masks are useless. But they will protect you. They can save you, no they can’t, they’re useless, but wear one anyway. Now they’re mandatory. But maybe. Or not.
- Stores are closed, except for the ones that are open.
- You should not go to the hospital unless you have to go there. Stay out of the ER at all costs unless you’re having a medical emergency then it’s okay.
- This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster. Stay calm.
- Gloves won’t help, but they can still help. Especially if you wear the same pair for hours and everywhere you go, then you can not spread germs, nope.#science
- Everyone needs to stay home, but it’s important to go out to get exposure to the sun. Sunlight will kill the virus but not if the virus kills you first by walking in the sunlight where you may be exposed to the virus.
- There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes.
- The virus has no effect on children except those it has affected or will affect.
- Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested yet, and a tiger.. and one really deadly but also possibly fictional but very sick bat.
- You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms.
- In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but also never go out to the grocery store so just eat processed crap and stay inside your four walls but also stay healthy.
- It’s better to get some fresh air, but you may be arrested if you’re getting fresh air the wrong way and most importantly, don’t go to a park, the fresh air there is deadly.
- Under no circumstances should you go to retirement homes, but if you have to take care of the elderly and bring them food and medication then fine. Just wear gloves. The same ones. All day.
- If you are sick, you can’t go out, but you can go to the pharmacy to get your medications. Just don’t make eye contact cause you may spread your sickness that way.
- You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn’t wear masks or gloves. But you have to leave your groceries outside for 3 hours to be decontaminated by the fresh air that also may have virus particles floating around in it.
- Taxi drivers are immune to the virus apparently since you can still take a taxi ride with a random taxi driver. Just don’t take the taxi to your mom’s house because you know. Stay away from your mom.
- You can walk around with a friend if you stay six feet apart but don’t visit with your family if they don’t live under the same roof as you. Even if you’ve all been locked inside for two months already. You may still have the virus and just not know it yet. You’ll find out. Wait another week. Wasn’t that a week? Might be the next one. Keep waiting.
- You are safe if you maintain the appropriate social distance, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance. Social distancing means you shouldn’t leave your house and don’t be social, except you may go to the liquor store but don’t socialize there while you’re being socially distant.
- The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn’t say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily.
- The virus stays in the air – well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance you should be ok, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel even further, maybe.
- We count the number of deaths but we don’t know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were “almost dead” to find out if that’s what they will die of…
- The virus will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity.. but stay inside until the virus disappears.
Are we really trusting the ones in charge?

I think that sums up most of the advice. Thank Barb, it’s all so much clearer now. Maybe? I’m not sure!
Mary Smith said:
Oh, this is wonderful, Barb. Sums up the whole mess brilliantly.
Yeah, them’s the guidelines! Clear as mud 😉

Snort! That’s the way it sounds to me. Thanks Barb. Hugs on the wing!
I would like to make a prediction: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Mental Health professionals are going to see a huge increase in the need for their services!
Oh, I could fall on your shoulder and cry. I’ve given up trying to understand this pandemic and the virus. If I catch it, I catch it. If I survive, I survive. If I don’t, I am worm food. That’s all.
It’s all so clear

Barb, these are a riot… so confusing how Costco and target are open here but not a golf course where I lose my ball and never see anyone anyway! I miss you!

Thanks for the laugh to whoever wrote these. I needed that!
OH – and the NEWEST advice from President of the USA is too ingest cleaning products. Because they do a ‘perfect’ job killing the virus on surfaces so if you soak human lungs in bleach that will also kill …

Just about sums up the present advice…

Yup. That’s what all the “experts” are saying. (Definition of expert: ex is the unknown quantity; spurt is drip of water under pressure; so expert is an unknown drip under pressure.)
Is there any wonder why we’re not all confused?

This is so true! But not on Tuesdays. Maybe. But only if it’s raining. And sometimes Fridays too.
But really, this is such an accurate rendering of all the stuff I’ve been hearing and reading.
I feel so much clearer about things now. Thank you!
You nailed every one. 😅
