    The cashier at the gas station I went to told me the something similar. I believe she said "I think this has all been overblown but I'm glad it's over."



    Of course, this was LAST Monday so I hope she's turned on a TV or something.

    C'mon, despite the sentiment conveyed, that was about as believable as the ones from people whose six year olds have profound political opinions.

    People don't call Facebook Fakebook for nothing.

    Haha. I have six different friends on Facebook that posted the same story.

    All from different people who claimed to be the person.

    Follow up-- the police confronted the man and he admitted that he was "joking." He was actually arrested for something (disturbing the public or something like that)

    Somebody needs to write some better fake conversations. My Grandpa is 95 and actually fought in WW2 and would tell this old bastard in the story to get over himself and thank the young man for asking to help. Then he'd tell the young man in the story that he would love it if he could pick him up 4 lbs of thick slab bacon.

    I wonder when Iowa is going to update the numbers? It hasn't been updated since yesterday morning.

    My mom's second outpatient cataract surgery was postponed yesterday, she asked when she could get the surgery and they said it may be the middle of summer before they can start up again. This is in rural Southern Iowa.

    It seems they update once they get the daily numbers from IDPH. That varies depending on the day. Wouldn't surprise me to see it updated after the daily new conference going forward.

    Yeah, organizations are putting off any procedures that they can safely put off. Elective surgeries and procedures for non-life threatening ailments are being delayed to avoid exposure, and make sure as much capacity available as possible for when COVID-19 cases start ramping up. They know it's coming. Outpatient surgeries are some of the most profitable procedures for medical organizations, because they have significantly less overhead than procedures with overnight stays. So, the fact that they're postponing them should give you a strong indication of how seriously they're taking this situation.
