    getting COVID outdoors
    An interesting and somewhat technical article about the risks of getting COVID in different scenarios. It appears that the risk of getting it in an outdoor activity is very low. Spending a long period of time indoor (like an office) even if you are 6 feet apart, is not that safe

    NYC and New Jersey readmitted nursing home patients with Covid-19. When I read the paper on The Risks- Know Them - Avoid Them, I couldn't help to notice some other facts we should have had control over, but didn't.

    At the epicenter of the outbreak, New York issued a strict new rule last month: Nursing homes must readmit residents sent to hospitals with the coronavirus and accept new patients as long as they are deemed “medically stable.” California and New Jersey have also said that nursing homes should take in such patients. Homes are allowed to turn patients away if they claim they can’t care for them safely — but administrators say they worry that refusing patients could provoke regulatory scrutiny, and advocates say it could result in a loss of revenue.
