The COVID 19 pandemic has taught us all a few things, first and foremost being that staying away from each other is really important.

On that subject, we suck at staying away from each other! Anyway, I've noticed that people are still "crowding up" in stores, lines, parking lots, etc. We've got plenty of room around here folks, we don't need to be breathing down each other's necks.

Another thing that has become very important, is not going out. The city even issued a "stay home" order which, according to KTSM, we are pretty much ignoring. They reported that our "travel" rates have only decreased by 4% since the city told everyone to stay home and we've earned an "F" in that department.

An ‘A’ means there has been more than 40-percent decrease in social behavior, ‘B’ is a 30 to 40 percent decrease, ‘C’ is a 20-30 percent decrease, ‘D’ is a 10 to 20 percent decrease and an ‘F,’ which is El Paso’s rating, citing only a 4-percent decrease in activity. - KTSM

Really peeps, the more we are out running around and breathing on each other, the longer this COVID-19 crap will be around.  If you don't have to go out, don't. If you do, stay away from other people. It's pretty simple.

And, wash your freakin' hands!
