The risk levels of everyday activities like dining out, going to the gym, and getting a haircut, according to an infectious-disease expert – via

A superb article, mostly for two reasons.

One, it covers a huge range of our everyday activities.

Two, it differentiates into most the activities, delineating what makes it risky or less so, in general.

An excerpt –
Coronavirus transmission is not black and white — some activities are riskier than others, while some should cause little worry.

Covered topics are

  • Gatherings of friends or family
  • Bars
  • Religious functions
  • Movie theaters and sporting events
  • Gyms
  • Restaurants (indoors)
  • Hair and nail salons
  • Dates or gatherings with a couple of friends
  • Beaches
  • Outdoor dining
  • Outdoor activities
  • Shopping
  • Touching mail or groceries

I esp like that the author points out positive things that mitigate risk in an activity, along with things that could make the activity much riskier.

The segments are short yet comprehensive, each has an image to easily “see” the daily life activity in motion. I’ve even shared the post on Facebook where I’ve now seen many other folks have shared it also. I hope you’ll take a look 😊

Be mindful, not only for yourself, but others. We’ll scale through this together 💕

    Easy Morning, new watercolor on absorbent ground 6×6 gallery wrap canvas #figureart My newest figure work had the usual tug and pull process painting it 😊 I really like the soft gentle feel of it, and especially like the look my wife got seeing it ❤️
  • At Rest With Nature – New Watercolor on Absorbent Ground, May 2020
    At Peace With Nature has several firsts for me. One, it’s a 5×7 stretched canvas, another size like my recent 6×12, A Walk Among the Wildflowers, I haven’t done in quite awhile, certainly even further back by maybe even decades, lol! It’s an interesting size, being small, yet enabling and enhancing the sense of length or height, like the 6×12, but more subtly.

    Personal Transitions During Stay-at-Home Distancing No BIG in the typical sense of what I tend to think “big” life change/transitions are, but with no blog post for 5 or 6 days, I gave up figuring out the exact # of days, lol, I felt compelled to say a little something.

    As one can tell by my photo below, I took a few liberties, but to some extent, that happens whether I plan it or not, lol 😂 But I like the result too much to alter anything on it. Another version, another time, will elicit a different response, and I do think this is one motif I’ll want to do more of, vs variations for just practice 😊

    A bit of news out of my home state of Texas. For the past decade, the two main political parties of that state have battled in and out of court in regard to things vote related. Actually seemingly everything vote related, lol!
  • Covid-19 Visit to Lady Bird Wildflower Center May 2020 💐
    First trip I can think of for Sheila & myself, much less with Max, since maybe pre-Covid! 💕 Short, less than 2 hours, and less than 15 minutes from home, but what a treat! 😊

Thanks again, everyone! 😊

  1. Good information, I hope that more people take the risk seriously and error on the side of caution. I personally will be keeping a distance, wearing a mask and I won’t be going to bars or restaurants anytime soon. Thank goodness I’m perfectly content staying in my home studio! Stay healthy and well my friend!

    • Very wise stance I think too, Tiffany. Bars & restaurants are so high risk, esp indoors. There’s quite a few things that could be done to mitigate risk, on many levels, but few have been implemented or started. We need a big change of direction. Even some of the Federal Reserve governors say as much (make health a priority) – so that’s saying something, lol! ☺️


  2. Thanks for this , Felipe . It was good to see it all laid out so clearly . I think that I will be assessing risks for a good few months yet .
