I think you should be very respectful of Covid.

Yes. Sure, the CDC numbers are all suspect and the whole thing stinks of politics, but there's just too much unknown about Covid.

I am lying low December and January. (See below.*) I am putting off air travel. I am putting off medical and dental visits as much as possible. Grocery and other shopping is at off-hours, usually 20 minutes before closing on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, which avoids weekends and others who are avoiding weekends. Using Amazon a lot.

The #1 thing is to avoid rebreathing others' breath, which is how you pick up a high enough concentration (viral load) to tip your system into trouble. Picking it up off doorknobs and other surfaces is a distant 2nd and easy to avoid: common sense hand-washing; no nose-picking, eye-rubbing, mouth-wiping, nail-biting, finger-licking.

*We'll know a lot more in a few weeks when we see the effect of Thanksgiving. Worst case, we'll have a bunch of new asymptomatic spreaders walking around, infecting Christmas shoppers and gatherings, resulting in a mushroom cloud of cases mid-January.

Frankly, I think chances of that happening are high. We'll see a spike just in time for the December 14 electoral vote. The Dems will be all over that spike, howling for Trump's head.
