@LipstickDiva  .....  Yes Dayton, Ohio made it mandatory to wear masks. They didn't have a choice. The town, not the county, has the highest spread of the virus. The governor even established a special task group to investigate.

@Sheila P-Burg Once again you are correcting my post and getting it wrong.  

 

I will make sure that I don't include you in any responses or respond to your posts therefore lifting from your shoulders the heavy burden of trying to make something else of my responses.  OK?  OK!

It is is pretty basic survival stuff - I don’t even want to be around anyone with a cold and I actively avoid people who are sick. It doesn’t matter if I know I’d get better in a week or so. 


@willdob3,  I don't know if this is the story @snoop was referring to because this man did not attend a "covid party" but just a party.

 

I will provide an inactive link to an article about him but the key takeaway, for me, was the following:

 

A friend who was at the party reached out to Macias to say he had coronavirus, and he was aware of the diagnosis when he attended the gathering but didn't think he could infect anyone because he had no symptoms, Lopez said.


"Our understanding is that a gentleman had called him and said 'hey I was at the party, I knew I was positive. I didn't tell anybody,'" Lopez said. "I think the gentleman was regretting not telling everybody, and he was calling people who were at the party to recommend they get tested."

 

The article is worth reading in its entirety.  A simple mistake, a realization, deep regret and ultimately death.

Students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have been attending parties in the city and surrounding area as part of a disturbing contest to see who can catch the virus first, a city council member told ABC News on Wednesday.

 

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students have been organizing "COVID parties" as a game to intentionally infect each other with the contagion that has killed more than 127,000 people in the United States. She said she recently learned of the behavior and informed the city council of the parties occurring in the city.

 

She said the organizers of the parties are purposely inviting guests who have COVID-19.

 

"They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense," McKinstry said. "They're intentionally doing it."

 

Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith told the City Council on Tuesday that he has confirmed the students' careless behavior.

@Sooner  ..... I am sorry you feel I have been disrespectful to you. I did not understand why you directed your post to me when my post was a question for clarification of a previous post submitted. 

 

As for "once again correcting your post".  I was not aware of that happening.

 

If not including me in any responses and not responding to my posts makes your time on the forum more enjoyable I encourage you to do so.

Re: Students Throw Covid Parties

I think that there are actually two different parties hitting the news today. One is group who wanted to Covid. But there was another large gathering from which many people were infected. Apparently, when contact tracers tried to get the party people to help them, they refused. They are now facing a large fine. Seems that did the trick.

That might be the same person.  There are more reports out there now.  The story I read didn't name the person.

 

Very sad this poor man had to lose his life from going to a party.
