We know the state is working to test every nursing home resident and employee so it would not be surprising if some of it is that, along with the drive through tests that KidDoc mentioned.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

How often are nursing home/assisted living residents and staff supposed to be tested? Weekly? It would be nice to know how many of the tests are repeats or first-timers.

Is there a breakdown of deaths by ethnicity? Looks like this has been exclusively 60+ years old, but I haven;t seen a connection to ethnicity.

Crestview tested all of their Skilled Nursing residents and staff last Thursday. I've been watching to see if there was a big spike.

I'm not sure how long it takes to get results.

For what its worth, haven't heard any EMS calls to Crestview in a while, and those I've have heard were for clearly non coronavirus related issues such as falls.

Hopefully they don't find any cases.

Just found out someone tested positive at my office. Not identified. I think I know who but still concerned. What is the obligation of employers to protect medical info but also indicate level of risk. We have had mandated masks and social distancing for 2 weeks. Honestly, pretty good adherance but not 100%. Worried for my family right now.

Is this the facility across from Blinn?

My mom is in the independent living section.

Two McDonalds employees tested positive, new KBTX story. Speculating that the spike in young folks testing positive in latest batch are service sector workers?

cinag83, two workers on our building tested positive in mid March. No other information was divulged. We were told "enter at your own risk." Good luck and hope you're ok.

2 people at my office (not Brazos county) tested positive.

One guy I know. His team is one that has to be at the facility to work. They sent them all home for a week and most are back now.

The other worked in the facility and had contact with a few others, the sick person and all known contacts (4 or so total people) are quarantined home.

They've done what they can to stop spread, but have not openly discussed who.

Big uptick today in "community spread" - 12

Other health experts eisewhere have pointed out that (sadly) co-morbidities rise (often through no fault of their own) after 50. In my case, despite a healthy diet and gym rat lifestyle, high blood pressure. Safe to assume the poor soul had one or more, as most of us past that mark do.

That said, I too share the frustration of not getting more data on these cases.

This is what you post every single time on this thread.

Can we keep the doom on F84?

Look man, some of you always say this when someone comes in and points out that the spread has picked up or says something other than the outlook you prefer. But you never say this when someone posts a rosy outlook.

Part of looking at the numbers locally is understanding when they mean a 2nd wave is coming in hard. I don't know if we're there yet, but I know that the numbers over the past two days (coupled with the pretty damn awful efforts I've seen out in public) are not a good sign.

If you don't like people saying that just don't read their posts. But stop trying to tell them where to post when its pretty relevant to the thread simply because you don't like what they have to say. Pull up those big boy pants and accept that other people view things differently.

The irony is you're doing the very thing you're accusing me of doing.

And I never told anyone to do anything. Asking to ditch the gloom and doom is not an order.

Now, I'm not going to argue with you since I know it will get flagged and I'll get a day off.

It is not going away. If hospitals are not overwhelmed it is going well.

Yes I know that stinks but that is the nature of a novel virus pandemic.

This is the key!

We can have 500 new cases in younger folks and it is fine!

Wash your hands, wear a mask. and limit your trips to pubic areas .... also ... wear a seat belt, drive defensively at a safe speed, and don't drive late at night.

Extremely probable you'll be just fine.

Nothing else you can do really. I do wish more people locally worse masks in crowded areas but since I can't control others I just avoid places where I've seen that happen. That typo tho, lol.

The evidence that masking makes any significant difference is flimsy at best. I see people wearing masks wrong every single day.


Now if everyone went around with eye protection and a fitted N95 it would crush transmission. But I don't see that happening. Even surgical mask work pretty well (estimated 70% decrease risk) . At this time the evidence of cloth masking being helpful is zippo and suspect that will be the case as more data is gathered.

This is my professional opinion and differs from the current, and frequently changing, CDC guidelines.

I've worn my mask in public exactly one time.

I have it in case someone requests I wear it but given my very very very limited exposure to anyone since mid March, I find it very hard to believe I'm an asymptomatic carrier.

I hate when people second guess my scientific expertise on the internet so I'm sure as hell not going to turn around and do that to you.

That being said, I see no downsides to me wearing a mask and if it might help I'll continue to do so while the guidance is that way. Its definitely not super comfortable, but then again nothing about the pandemic is comfortable. Hopefully we get definitive guidance on it one way or another eventually.
