Default Re: Coronavirus

Would it be simplistic for governments to provide the odds of catching the Coronavirus (by postode or town, etc)? It's an easy enough number to understand, although admittedly clunky because the odds are changing every minute. But surely it would be helpful to the public in gauging risk between locations and over time. At the outset there was talk of the R number, but that is not intuitive for individuals and essentially functions as a traffic light.

People would simply use anything in the low/ very low risk zones as a reason to take no precautions, and argue with even basic SD guidance. This would probably have the effect of driving up the infection rate towards the average.

Not to mention I think it would also drive those in high risk areas to go "let's escape this covid nightmare and go xxx as they've got no cases" oblivious to the fact they may be spreading it themselves.

Yes it actually is/was on the BC CDC website for sex during COVID. Its been a running joke online this week...

This is the wording used "Use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact."

COVID-19 and Sex

34 new cases announced today
1000 people in self isolation
70 cases now linked to events and parties in Kelowna

New rules for bars and night clubs which include, no dance floor, all patrons must be seated and no alcohol self service (such as going up to the bar to order)

"The B.C. COVID-19 curve is trending in a direction we don't want it to go — upwards," said Henry.

That brings a whole (no pun intended) new meaning to "using a barrier method".

On the Hamilton website they have the number of infected in each census tract ..which gives a good idea of where you are less likely to catch it.
https://www.hamilton.ca/coronavirus/...es-in-hamilton = pan down to the map at the bottom - you can keep zooming in to specific streets etc.,

Sounds like there is a possibility that health officials are considering restrictions in Central Okanagan that differ from other regions of the province.

I was led to believe the chance to go through a stud was one of the highlights of a glory hole?

Browns Socialhouse, 100-1544 Harvey Avenue, on July 13 or July 16-19 are asked to self-monitor themselves closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and to get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms.

Another COVID exposure location has been identified in Kelowna.
