Does it really matter if one gets sick and dies from " kitchen work" vs "entertainment" ? Does the semantics matter when its game over ? And if that one worker in the house has the virus is repeated exposure to one infected person going to be any less detrimental and a one time exposure to a crowd ? What good is a new kitchen going to do to the person who might not to eat in it ? Doesnt every business entity want to get back to work with all the unfilled contracts ?If I have my contractor come to work on my new kitchen, it's because the no work order would have been lifted and both of us are reasonably sure we're healthy. I say "reasonably" because there's no such thing as 100% sure. We would both have been staying in place long enough to be reasonably sure we're not infected. People has to go back to work, and as long as we have a controlled environment, business needs to resume. On the other hand, how many strangers are you going to come into contact with in a public event, a social gathering for entertainment - hundreds, thousands? There's a big difference. We're talking about work, not entertainment here. Work is essential while entertainment is not. My contractor needs to work, and I also need to honor my contract with him. I'm ok with this.
The first confirmed case of Covid 19 in China was documented as Nov.17 . The first US case was Jan 8. Look where we are now . There was no vaccine then and none now. There was no formal treatment or now .
Do you still want everyone back at work ? Define "controlled environment" . Are we not doing so now ?
