Covid Risk Chart

Cassidy's cousin Lionel made this cake for our would-be fighter pilot.

Grace note:  Cassidy took her first flight with her father when she was about seven. When I asked how she liked it, she thought about it a moment and said, "I liked lunch." (Obviously, flying has grown on her since then.)

My daughter took this photo 7/18/20 at a house appraisal

Grace note:  Not surprisingly, I'm a Cancer.

Below is a summary of an article by Iliana Limón Romero in the Orlando Sentinel, Sunday, July 12, 2020. Since the number of Covid cases in the U. S. is skyrocketing and this list of risky activities seems to make sense, I am postponing the blog I'd planned for today and posting the list in its place.

Attribution:  "The Texas Medical Association put together a chart to help people assess the risk of everyday activities based on survey responses from a group of physicians. Their recommendations assume anyone doing these activities is following coronavirus prevention best practices that include wearing masks or face coverings, washing hands frequently and practicing social distancing." 

Risks are listed from Low to High.

Lowest Risk:

1. Opening mail. (Wash hands afterward.)

2. Restaurant take-out, pumping gas, playing tennis, camping

3. Grocery shopping; going for a walk, run, or bike ride with others; playing golf

4.  Staying at a hotel for two nights, sitting in a doctor's waiting room, going to a library or museum, eating outside at a restaurant, walking in a busy downtown, spending an hour at a playground

Medium Risk:

5.  Having dinner in someone else's house, attending a backyard barbecue, going to the beach, shopping at a mall

6.  Sending kids to school, camp, or daycare; working a week in an office building; swimming in a public pool; visiting an elderly relative or friend in their home

Medium High Risk:

7.  Going to a hair salon or barbershop, eating inside in a restaurant, attending a wedding or funeral, traveling by plane, playing basketball, playing football, hugging or shaking hands when greeting a friend

8.  Eating at a buffet, working out at a gym, going to an amusement park, going to a movie theater

Highest Risk:

9.  Attending a large music concert, going to a sports stadium, attending a religious service with 500+ people, going to a bar

Grace note:  Personally, I would lower that 500+ to a LOT less!

  1. It's good to see their assessment of risk -- and to be confirmed that I'm smart to wash my hands after opening the mail. :) But I'd class visiting an elderly relative (outside of a nursing home) as far safer than sending my kids to school. Kids in school catch things. Lots of things. All the time. Elderly friends, especially these days, are being much more cautious. But the other way around -- elderly people being visited by grandchildren, especially grandchildren who go to school? Now that's a different story. But it's a risk I'd take in a heartbeat.
