CoVid-19 Diary: News, Links, and Wear Your Goddamn Face Covering

Taken at San Diego Zoo Safari Park - March 13 Feels Like So Long Ago
Darren did all the household laundry today, people are going to be required to wear face coverings so I can stop freaking out whenever I do have to actually go to a store, and I was just feeling much better mentally overall. So I've got some news, links, and other stuff after the jump.

I loved this package that NBC San Diego posted yesterday.
San Diego’s New Reality: Helping and Adapting Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

I wrote this thing a couple days ago: CoViD-19: Cover Your Face, Dammit! (3.31.2020), and now face coverings are being urged nationwide by the administration, statewide by the Governor, citywide by Mayor Faulconer, and countywide by Nathan Fletcher.

New County Orders:
-Cloth facial coverings required for Grocery stores, pharmacy, gas station employees, recommended for public
-Parking lots at all parks & recreation areas closed
-"The days of trying to get voluntary compliance are over." - Sheriff Bill Gore (Citations are $1000/up to 6 months in jail)

(side note: MAKE SURE YOU'RE WAYING THINGS CORRECTLY!! Mouth and nose should be covered. If your mask has a nose bridge, it it supposed to be squeezed into shape over your nose, not on your chin)
