No problem. Next up is what level of exposure/infection constitutes herd immunity for this virus. Today's Chronicle piece says 40% or so, but the County health director's statement says 80-90%. Like everything else, we'll figure this out in due course.

Today's WSJ has an article that says the 49ers losing the Super Bowl and NOT having a giant parade in early February was really lucky for us. The UCSF team was setting up an isolation clinic during the game......

Just as scary, is the release of inmates from our jails/prisons.
Was talking to my cousin in Texas tonight and his grandson is getting released solely because of Covid. Self admitted by my cousin; his grandson is a bad human being, with zero remorse and will 100% be back in jail soon. Probably for something worse than what he is in there now for. He knows in his heart, someone will get hurt with his release.

That is a very personal comment Joe.
Thank you.
I have read that @ 50% of inmates quartered at the San Francisco County Jail,(located @ Sneath Lane, San Bruno, CA.) will be released in the next two weeks. Where do they go?

Anyway, if you have never seen this Prison(surrounded by Million Dollar Homes) has been used in Movies, as well as Farming Skills.
Nevertheless, it is an Ominous Structure.
PS
This Prison is within 100 yards of Skyline College.
Check it out.

In answer to the "Are they going to cut the grass in our parks?" question, this just came in from the City:

The Parks Division maintains over 20 acres of grass. Since the first Shelter-in-Place Order went into effect on March 16, City staff has refrained from performing regular lawn maintenance. Grass has since grown to a length that will be harmful to the health of the turf if it isn’t mowed. If the grass grows any longer, staff will be forced to remove too much of the leaf surface, which would result in irreparable damage to the turf. Removing more than one third of the grass will prevent photosynthesis and can kill the grass. Ultimately, the City would have to spend more time and money to reseed and restore the grass to playing condition. Without mowing, the fields would need to remain closed to the public.

Furthermore, the mowers used by City staff are not equipped to handle turf that is excessively tall. Tall grass can damage the gears, pulleys, and belts of the City's mowing equipment, which in turn would require costly maintenance and downtime. Lastly, once the lawn exceeds four inches, the irrigation heads are blocked. As we enter the dry season, the irrigation system wouldn’t work as intended and the grass would die.
