  2. Erin Bromage:

    I'd like to say don't go. We know it's just not smart, especially if you [ are older ] and have any of these health risks. I don't care about your political affiliation -- it's just that if you've got those risks, you should be doing things that help protect your health, if you're going to go, your job is to minimize interactions ; the more handshakes that you have, the more groups that you mix with, each one of those interactions increases your chance of actually being exposed to the virus. I wouldn't dwell in spaces for longer than I need to. Masks would be great. They will protect the others around you and provide some protection for you if you're wearing a good quality one.
