Re: Any group back to observing in cars?

Ok, fair enough. The first thing I saw was the 'rubber stamp' of 'mostly false'. Quite. So, given that you have now probably read more than I have, what masks are appropriate for two people who are in close proximity for an extended duration if there is an intention to substantially reduce the like...

Re: Any group back to observing in cars?

Most basic masks (as I understand it) are more to restrict spread than particularly to prevent infection (ie the wearer contracting it) unless you go for fairly serious kit. The answer is, as always, "It depends..." https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/covid-19-mask-efficacy-chart/ Did you a...

Re: Any group back to observing in cars?

From the dictionary on this laptop: USAGE Nowhere are the battle lines more deeply drawn in usage questions than over the difference between disinterested and uninterested. According to traditional guidelines, disinterested should never be used to mean ‘not interested’ (i.e. it is not a synonym for ...
