You might want to consider using dilute Cl bleach

My impression is that bleach is the higher powered disinfectant.

The short version is that it is very difficult to delay the general election. To do such would require a massive coordinated effort by both the federal and state governments.

Tiger At NYC Zoo Tests Positive For Coronavirus
Tiger At NYC Zoo Tests Positive For Coronavirus

quote:
NEW YORK (AP) — A tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the new coronavirus, in what is believed to be the first known infection in an animal in the U.S. or a tiger anywhere, federal officials and the zoo said Sunday.

The 4-year-old Malayan tiger named Nadia — and six other tigers and lions that have also fallen ill — are believed to have been infected by a zoo employee who wasn’t yet showing symptoms, the zoo said. The first animal started showing symptoms March 27, and all are doing well and expected to recover, said the zoo, which has been closed to the public since March 16 amid the surging coronavirus outbreak in New York.

Life in Mooseland
I continue doing my 2 part time jobs, which have always involved minimal exposure to others, and it's even more minimal now.

The radio station (ktwh.org) is pretty much keeping away all optional workers, and rerunning old shows in their absence. I think the number of people still showing up at the station is about 10, but all are scheduled such that there is only 1 person at the station at a time (with an occasional 2, still keeping distances from each other). We have no outside of the usual staff at the station, and are doing a fair amount of wiping things down at the end of shifts/day.

My second job is night cleaner etc. at a veterinary clinic. Even in normal times, I'm almost always the only person in the building at the time. The clinic is restricting human clients from even coming into the building, and they're doing such things as having dog owners remove leashes and collars out in the parking lot, and the clinic then supplies a leash/coller to bring the dog into the building. Those leashes/collars are then run through the washing machine and dryer at the end of the day.

I live alone (other than 4 cats) in a fairly isolated cabin out in the woods. I rarely got guests, even in normal times. Even though I'm traveling to and from Two Harbors on a daily basis, I can still easily go a full day or more without even seeing another person, especially if you don't count people hundreds of feet away or also in automobiles. Being a hermit night person makes me a social distancing natural.

We have had no confirmed Covid-19 cases in Lake or Cook counties in northeast Minnesota. I don't see much of what's happening about town during daytime, but I think people are doing a pretty good job of minimizing contacts.

Or something like that.

Added by edit - I also live a pretty low cost existance - Even if no new money came in, I do have enough in checking to cover 3 to 4 months of expenses. I get by on about $600/month for normal day to day functioning. Things like insurance payments, extra auto maintenance, and cat illnesses will send that higher.
