Virus notes: August 19, 2020

MERCED (BLJ) – On August 19, the Merced County Public Health department reported 97 people had died from Covid-19. Let those to blame rot in their own private hells. Let the rest of us continue to wear our masks, wash hands, observe social distance, be kind to doorkeepers who poke temperature-taking apparatuses in our faces,  and find some way, regardless of how irritated we are, to take these precautions seriously.

You never know: the life you save may be your own.
