  • A Quarter-Million People

    That's how many have now died from COVID-19 in just the U.S. We reached 200,000 in September. 50,000 people in just two months. This isn't a hoax. Numbers are not inflated. It's a FACT. Wear a mask. Social distance. Protect yourself and others.

    Let it all begin. Who is to blame?

    Before I get yelled at, I did not start the thread. I am just tired of the finger being pointed at the wrong culprit/country.

      We're all in it, no matter where we choose to place blame. We ALL need to do our part to slow the spread and protect ourselves and each other.

        No one person or group of people are responsible for Covid-19.
        It is just the viruses fault!
        Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.

          The World Health Organization reports that lockdowns could be avoided if everyone followed recommended health measures - like wearing a mask.

            Yea, the WHO has been completely up front and above board with this, yea RIGHT! I do agree that masks are needed to fight the virus and distancing where it is needed but please show me where the rioters followed the distancing and masks recommendations from WHO and everyone else. No one seems to address that, HUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                Still lots of heads in the sand when it comes to the country to blame. Stating the obvious is no longer an option to some people, in this cancel culture. I for one am not afraid of the cancel culture. No one should be. I served so I can speak my mind and refuse to let someone else tell me or try to intimidate me to hold back my thoughts and the desire to point the finger at the rightful country that caused all this to begin with. Going along to get along is not a fair and honest option here. Being timid gets US no where.

                  No mask for me!

                  Wear one if you like, thats up to you but dont tell me I need to wear one. If they work and you wear one than you have nothing to worry about. If its that big of a deal why dont politicians wear them when they go shopping, go to get their hair done, go to dinner in expensive californian restaurants, or fly to hawaii for meetings about the virus????

                    I agree we need to wear masks. We do not need to use Covid as an excuse not to work. My husband of 45 years passed away at 66 years old due to Covid. We need to wear masks and stay away from each other. I do not think we need to shut down the economy. This is a horrible disease, it is not just another flu as some say. I had Covid and it was the worst flu I have ever had. It is a flu X 100! I am so sick of business using Covid as an excuse to provide substandard service and to treat people rudely. I have lost way more than a lot of people so I know how bad this is. We need to put on our big people panties and fight this disease together. But most of all we need to care for one another and treat each and every person with respect and dignity.

                        Let me preface this by saying that when I go to the Post Office, grocery store, etc. I wear a mask. I do not wear a mask when I'm driving down the road all by myself!

                        But if the masks really works answer me this. Our local Post Office has the plexiglass shields in front of all the counter people, AND they all wear masks. Plus of all the times I've been in the PO in the past 8 months (5 or 6 days per week) I've seen less than 5-10 customers NOT wearing a mask. So how did we have an outbreak of COVID among the PO employees? They all have been required to wear masks and are protected from the public? Makes you wonder.

                            My nephew works at a casino that checks temps, makes everyone, both staff and customers, wear masks and use hand sanitizer liberally and disinfects during the day. He still got it, and so did his room mate. Too many people in an enclosed space, I guess.

                                For our rate increases, we have taken a REIT approach, rates goes up on a schedule, but can easily be adjusted at a site level based on demand, customer issues, occupancies, etc.

                                Our discounts have been very limited already due to almost all unit groups being over 90%, if a discount is...

                                Are you sure one size fits all for all the facilities and neighborhoods they are in? We do rate increases as needed and not on a schedule of 9 months. I have had 6 years in a row of increases over the year before and will do it again this year for a total of 7. We stress the security of the facility...
