PSA: The virus is being spread at gas pumps and their keypads, so unless you are a manly man with total immunity, glove up and then toss before getting back into your car.

Toss in trash (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

The parking lot at Safeway was littered with gloves last week.

Yes, trash. You have to wonder what is wrong with some people when they think it's ok to just drop their trash on the ground.

No glove for me.

No ass gaskets either! And after all these years I've never caught Ebola, flesh eating bacteria, or any communicable disease from all the public toilets I've taken a dump on over the years. Learned to take a dump in the military with some yahoo staring at you while you wipe your ass. Some how I survived. Go figure. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

I guess I've been living on the wild side and never knew it.

It’s amazing how disgusting people can be when things get a little stressful, I do the food shopping and see lots of latex/nitrile gloves on the ground outside markets, even within tossing distance of a garbage can.

I keep a bottle of water and a Norwex cloth in the cars, anytime I get in the vehicle I wipe down my hands, steering wheel, gear shift, etc. since it’s difficult to find hand sanitizer now.

Not to mention it’s just good practice.

Stay healthy all... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Absolutely.
I've picked up litter and handed it back to litterbugs.
Plain ignorance.
My wife and kids say I'll get shot someday.
Not touching anything these days.

Indeed. Glad I have a couple boxes of disposable gloves in the garage.

For those who blatantly disregard following safe practices, you're not only endangering yourself, you're endangering the lives others.

I hate litterbugs and always have. Shows a complete lack of respect for people and the community. If it were me sitting on the bench in court, any litterbug would be fined $5K and 500 hours community service cleaning the streets and highways. Can't pay, go sit in jail for 90 days actual and then do your 500 hours.

Always used a condom with chicks I didn't know, or at least until I learned their name. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) Oops, earlier post meant COVID-19 safe practices.

As a theoretical question, if I were to go out in a Tyvek suit, gloves, and with a full on respirator. How far would I get before I got accused of causing undue panic? What if I attempted to go though the airport this way? Do you think TSA would object? Would I get arrested? Of course, I'd only be taking basic precautions to protect myself and the lives of others.

For the record, CDC safe practices recommendation is to wash hands frequently. Nothing about the use of gloves at gas pumps or anywhere else. Nothing about recommending community to wear masks unless they are sick. The public's overuse of both masks and gloves is what is leading to the shortage for medical personnel (of masks).

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/p...prevention.html

Can't necessarily believe CDC though. Remember they are the very same dopes that completely botched up test kits both in terms of accuracy (initial kits were producing false results) and also in the overall distribution of kits. Well, at least they have a nice web site. Thanks, but, I already know to wash my hands frequently during the flu season.

I totally wear disposable gloves when I go anywhere to market, ATM, gas stations. Opening mail box, opening front door

I remove and put hand sanitizer on when gloves come off in SUV.


My wire is immune comprised from Chemo last year so I am overly carful and 67 so we treat it like our lives are at risk.

In Los Angles is a hot spot but not as hot as my son has it in NYC.

Whatever. I haven't done one thing differently other than try to buy buttwipe for my panicking girlfriend.

We have about 15 rolls at home and she's worried we are going to run out. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bootyshake.gif)

It's hard, but I'm trying to avoid touching anything public period. I am so glad I always have gloves for working on cars. Wearing them anytime we go anywhere outside the house these days.

Gloves are not all the protection you may think they are, viruses cling quite well to latex.

Wash you hands, don't touch your face, your mouth, eyes, nose are the most like entry points. My wife can't stress this enough, the average person touches their face 20 times an hour. Hands in your pockets! If you must scratch you face use a Kleenex.
If you do use gloves wash your hands as soon as you take them off. If you use gloves in high risk areas you have to remove them (and wash) before before entering your safe areas. Viruses stick best on hard non porous surfaces, Stainless steel, hard plastic, tap handles, phones, door handles, shopping cart handles, etc.

Number one is if you don't have to go anywhere stay home. If you do have to go out no crowds, 2 meters (6-7 feet) social distancing.
