Basically I live by my instincts, if I feel danger I respond e.g. (for example) going into a place with very little air movement and people not wearing mask. That is a situation where I may get a significant viral load so I just don't go there.
This post originated when I saw someone who had just arrived, they were all excited to be here and asked if they could give me a hug. I didn't say no but afterwards I felt like I had been caught off guard, and that my preference would have been not to hug them. I feel that hugging increases the chance of getting a significant viral load and un necessarily endangers others and the town.
Hugging (especially those who have just traveled) is something that should be avoided until the COVID situation is more stable. My instincts said danger and I expressed that on the message board.
You are free to have the opinion that because I don't comply with all of the safeguards that my warning is invalid and I will endure that opinion, but in my opinion its not a valid enough reason to not express my sense of danger. At least this way I won't be wishing I would have said something if things go South on us.
