Thanks for the information.

I have an underlying health issue with lungs that means I'll be one of the dead ones if I catch it. So, I'll be making this trip without human contact. I don't even plan to take change back from the toll booths And will wear my construction respirator at any time I'm outside like to pump fuel.

Probably going to wear disposable gloves outside too AND remove them after being outside the vehicle as well as wash hands.



I have 2 dear friends who have reason to fear this virus, too - so my prayers are with you.
A hint that I read: when pumping gas, use dog poop bags over your hand! Much cheaper than gloves and easily disposed-of. Here in Florida, the toll booths are unmanned now - they will take a picture of your plate and send you a bill; or you can make note of the toll plaza and time, and pay online for a cheaper rate

Ok, at least a few of you haven’t freaked out....thanks AJ and doggy Doo bag suggestion person.
The rest of you.....open your curtains, crawl out from under your beds, go take a drive, call a place ahead of time if you think they might be closed....etc.
But snap out of it!!!
Sound like my MIL, called balling her eyes out yesterday because her daughter ( my wife) is in WA!!! She don’t care about me n the kids, but that’s a different story.

Wake up and chill out! Proces the info, don’t be part of the problem when it comes to paranoia.

From the article,
"Those in jail for probation violations and low-level crimes — fourth-degree, disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses — will be released Thursday." No felons. While not state wide many communities in Ohio are doing the same thing.

Our county jail did the same here in Oregon.

They've taken hundreds to jail for violating the stay at home orders. If I were you I wouldn't chance it. Bypass Delaware and any other state that will confine you for being out and about. Better yet, stay in Florida.


There is always one scumbag who wants to spread rumors and lies and upset others. I should probably use a more correct internet term: "troll".

This is just disgusting when people are panicky, upset and trying to decide what they should or can do.


He's pretty well known for stuff like this. That's why we long time members just ignore his posts.

Finally, some really useful information.

Thank you for this tip, seriously! A friend gave me a few pairs of disposable gloves but they are a PITA to put on and getting them off leads to more touching of skin. Poop bags are perfect because they provide great protection (as any dog owner knows) and yet can easily slip on and then off into a trash can. Plus I have 100 rolls that are easy to carry!

Don't know, but is it worth contacting a carrier and getting sick. Life is short. This will pass eventually.

That’s kind of why we want to do it.

So we don’t have contact with people

Sorry to those who can't take some humor. This virus has scared far too many people (snowflakes?). Were you all this scared in 2009 when the H1N1 killed 12,468 people in the US and there were 60 million reported cases? As I recall nothing much happened during that pandemic, no panic, no empty store shelves, no stay at home orders, no closed businesses, no nothing. Yet this new virus comes along, which isn't a fraction as deadly as the H1N1 and everyone is losing their minds. Maybe we've gotten too soft.
