    It's anyone who touches anything. Packages/mail, sweat left on exercise equipment at gym. People coughing on they're hands then touching cards/dice, and slot machines buttons.
     
  3. Not to much. If you spend all your time scared go to church. I also believe God has a plan.

    Ive had two people in the last week cough INTO their hand as im handing them the diad. My face is just like :angry:. Cant they cough into their shoulder? and not directly into their hand. One apoligized after they realized that was gross. The other person didnt care.
     
  6. Lil Wayne changed it in 2011 to if you're scared get a scripture tat. Either phrase I love and use from time.

    This happens hundreds of times to hundreds of thousands of ups drivers daily. It's only a matter of time......
     
  8. Tell your management team that it's a safety concern and the you want a remedy to this. If the solution isn't the one you like take it to the grievance procedure. This is how to get things changed. Doing it under article 18 makes the process go quicker.

    5 Altman nurses were on same flight as Amber Vinceint on cleveland flight. The Akron area where nurse stayed is locked down like a movie. No one knows exactly how many people she had recent contact with. It is spreading way easier than public health officials are saying.

    I would bring 1,200 plastic each week bags just not to catch the virus. I'm going to speak to management tomorrow about this. I go through to much hand sanitizer. It's in my cup holder all day out there.

    It takes up to 21 days to have any symptoms. Let's see if a month from now there isn't 1000's of new cases. I hope I'm wrong.

    And she flew even knowing she already had a low grade fever. That was thoughtful of her.

    With Ebola going around I'm glad I'm in the hood. You know where the only places people travel to is the liquor store.

    Yeah I get a big fat woman coming to the door sucking the bbq sauce off her fingers and I'm like ohhh, yeah you're all set. I'll agree to pay the claim before i'd let her touch my board.

    Even so, I'll take nasty hood bbq saliva over ebola.

    She contacted center for disease control before she took the flight and reported the fever. They allowed her to fly. It's not on her.

    My hood is mexicano. Most people think I'm the police or immigration or just plain Dont care why I'm at the door. So my interactions are limited at best lol.

    I know that but both of them should have known better from what I understand about Ebola. Everything I have ever read or heard on the news is that it is contagious once you develop a fever. Unless the CDC has changed their mind someone sure dropped the ball and should be out of a job---period.

    Bump this thread in a month or two and I might change my tune.
