And wear a mask! I'm perfectly healthy and low risk and still wear mine in public because it protects OTHERS. Come on people, try and develop a little bit of empathy while we're in a pandemic.

Thank you, klwRD, I am high risk wearing the blue gloves. But every time I venture out there will be a family of six and one on the way three in diapers in the grocery like it was a russian roulette theme park. Again thank you and be safe.
