    The coronavirus pandemic has meant a lot of changes for singletons who are actively dating, with health experts warning everyone to limit their physical contact with people they don't live with. Doctors, epidemiologists, and even government organizations have advised people to think twice about swapping spit, with several going so far as to suggest wearing face masks during sex. As it turns out, dating safety looked shockingly similar during the world's last major pandemic, the Spanish flu of 1918 — that is, sans the masked sex recommendation — with kissing discouraged and even outlawed in some areas around the world and amorous couples finding creative ways to smooch and still stay safe.  Deja vu!

    Republican Lt. Gov. Jon Husted of Ohio learned quickly on Monday that President Donald Trump’s voters aren’t ready for even mildly encouraging statements about wearing masks to stop the spread of COVID-19. He appeared ahead of the president at a Trump rally in Ohio, and he tried to promote a series of Trump-branded masks. To the attendees’ credit, his speech was pretty condescending. Husted seemed to think he could convince them to wear face masks — which have become demonized on the right — just because they were branded with Trump logos. But Husted was at least trying to encourage healthy behavior among his voters, which Trump has repeatedly declined to do. Experts agree masks are one of the most...

During a hearing on coronavirus response efforts, Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., criticized President Trump for typically not wearing a mask and holding events where attendees did not wear them. He then asked witnesses if Trump was "undercutting" an important step that Americans can take to protect themselves. Redfield did not take the bait, but he still had plenty to say about masks.

    Reymond Padilla, director of the Whittier Spartans Softball league, has plans to protect himself, his team and his children from COVID-19 that he follows with zealous devotion. The girls — including his 12-year-old daughter — must wear masks while practicing and playing. They take breaks every 30 minutes to sanitize their hands, even though they stand yards apart. Before agreeing to play games with other teams, he asks for a list of COVID-19 protocols they follow. If their rules don’t meet his standards, he cancels the game. But that line of resistance fades when it comes to family. His daughter lives in her mother’s household, where uncles, nephews and other family are invited for weekend gatherings without...
    A maskless Donald Trump expressed the importance of wearing face-coverings to a packed, non-socially distanced crowd during a rally in Pennsylvania on Thursday, in which the president also admonished Joe Biden as a 'puppet' of domestic terrorists.    While the polls insist the presidential election this November will likely prove to be a ‘game of inches’, Trump assured a jubilant crowd gathered at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, in Latrobe, that Biden is ‘dropping like a rock in water’. Trump attributed the Democratic nominee's apparent demise to idea that Biden's plan 'is to appease the domestic terrorists and my plan is to arrest them and prosecute them.' He went on to accuse the former Vice President of being ‘a puppet of the socialist,...

    Sweden is seeing a spike in demand for face masks, several drug stores said, ahead of a possible U-turn by the authorities, who have so far doubted their effectiveness in fighting the spread of the new coronavirus. Unlike most other European countries, Sweden has kept many businesses, restaurants and most schools open, while not recommending the use of face masks, which are very common in Denmark, Norway and Finland. But after the public health agency (FHM) said two weeks ago that it may issue new recommendations, Swedes appear to be stockpiling.  Face mask sales at online pharmacist Apotea have increased to around 400,000 units a week in the past two to three weeks from 150,000 in previous weeks, CEO Par...
    People who refuse to wear a face mask or comply with social distancing are more likely to have sociopath tendencies, a study has found. Callousness, deceitfulness and manipulativeness - possible signs of a sociopath - were traits commonly found among people who broke Covid-19 safety rules.   The findings come from a survey of around 1,600 people in Brazil, which has the second highest number of reported Covid-19 cases in the world (3.8million). The researchers said these people in society pose a risk to others, considering they still do not obey rules despite cases and deaths climbing.  It adds to research done by experts in Poland who made similar findings and said people with psychopathic or narcissistic traits may be more likely...

    CHICAGO — Restaurant and bar patrons are now required to wear masks anytime they’re interacting with staff. The policy will go into place Wednesday throughout Illinois, Gov. JB Pritzker announced at a Tuesday press conference.

The rule change means customers now have to keep on their mask when ordering or otherwise talking to employees. Officials hope the new rule will protect servers and other hospitality workers, who have, for months, expressed concerns about customers not being required to wear masks when speaking with them. “Customers must follow this...
