    Valley County Authorities: Please Don't Visit Us Right Now

    March 21, 1:45 p.m.

    Valley County is telling visitors to not travel to the region. There are no mandatory closures in the county, but many businesses have closed. Food service options and recreational opportunities are limited.

    In an open letter to the Valley County community, Dr. Gregory Irvine, MD, chief of staff at St. Luke's McCall Medical Center, wrote in a press release that prospective visitors should stay home because of limited hospital resources in the area. "People are arriving in rural towns, in large numbers, from all over the state and country to take 'virus vacations,'' Irvine says. "I can think of little that is more inappropriate and dangerous than this mindset."On Monday, the Valley Commissioners enacted an Emergency Declaration to try to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, the mayor of McCall, the county’s biggest city, asked visitors to stay away from the tourist destination. There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Valley County.

    Up here in Vermont they closed all restaurants, ( they are ONLY HAVING doing take out only) and bars are closed as of last Tuesday.

    Now as of Monday( tomorrow), the governor has mandated that all- person operations at close contact close on Monday by 8PM. That includes gymnasiums, fitness centers, and similar exercise facilities, nail salons, spas, tattoo parlors, hair saloons, and barbers.


    The governor is mandating the that they close until April 15, to help slow the virus down.

    The guys I ride with and I have a trip booked for June to ride Vermont/ New Hampshire/ upstate New York... prepaid for a chalet rental as a base for a week back in January... now wondering if we can get our money back or we will just have to write it off if things don't get better. With the Canada/ US border closed now for any tourist travel, we may not have any option anyway. Stay safe peeps!!


    You can't get there from here....

    Default June...

    We are/were planning to attend Americade in June. When this virus first reared it's head, I thought the all-clear would be sounded by June.... now... not so sure. We are holding off registering for the rally and will just continue day rides and neighborhood walks for the time being.

    Ya'll stay safe,

    From the moderators:

    The moderators are just trying to make sure that no "bad" information gets posted concerning the virus. We have already had some complaints that we are allowing people to post information that may or may not be correct.

    One has suggested that we kill all virus threads because of the possibility of mis-information.

    We do not wish to do that...

    We are treading a fine line here...so please bear with us.

    I can see where keeping up with this would drive you a bit nuts. 50 states and 50 different approaches to the problem. Not to mention different areas within those 50 states

    I have made the comment a few times...as Kermit said..."it ain't easy being green."

    And many thanks for your understanding. We don't always ace it, but we try.

    Personally, I think it's important that we allow CV related threads. There may be new info that some of us don't know about. I fully understand that the info posted here may or may not be correct. Perhaps start a sub section w/a "first thread" that everybody has to read before being allowed to view the rest of the threads that states the information may or may not be correct?

    I think everyone here is smart enough (I hope) to know that unless I'm directly quoting the CDC or the WHO or I'm an actual doctor (I'm not but I do play one on TV), whatever I post is someones opinion.

    YMMV

    That sucks. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of stories like this. Hope you are able to get a refund.

    I like what most here said except for a few. This whole thing is not about "Me and We". This is about all of us. The more we are out and about (even a short trip) the more we expose ourself to the virus the more we are apt to spreading it to someone else. Did you know it can be spread through the air we breath? Let us all pull together and try some "Social Distancing" hang around the house and maybe in several weeks we can turn this thing around. When you ride you stop around others for fuel and food and that is the whole point.

    Keep yourself safe and think of some one other than yourself and satisfying that urge for "wind therapy". Just a couple of weeks at home never hurt anyone!

    Please stay home and daily rides only. We're all affected by this and we must accept that our lives will change for a short while. Greater good.

    Jack, everything I’ve read, and listening to the medical community as well as our health officials, the Covid-19 virus is NOT an airborne virus and CANNOT be spread through the air we breathe. Close proximity as well as touch is what spreads this virus. I, for one, will go out for “wind therapy” as long as the weather holds out. I DO NOT go near other individuals, and DO NOT look for getting a cup of coffee. I only go out for local rides, as there are NO restaurants, Motels/Hotels open, so local riding is the “order of the day”. Whatever anyone else does is their own choice. this is my opinion only, based on what the W.H.O. as well as our own Health Officials have said.

    You may want to check this out when speaking of airborne:

    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...nsmission.html

    That's why first responders wear a mask. But, you're correct, we all make our own choices.

    Be aware that US-129 (Dragon) is closed on the NC side as well as the Cherohala Skyway in NC. OUR members are doing shorter day rides, brown bag, and keeping distance at stops. Take your own TP!

    Based on the website Wyliec links to you are somewhat correct. The virus doesn't just float around in the air around an infected person which another can then breathe. But droplets from coughing or sneezing that reach another person can be ingested into the nose or mouth before the droplets evaporate or drop to the ground.

    As of this afternoon Idaho is now under a statewide stay at home order.

    Don't forget, those droplets can also hit your eyes, which is why you see some healthcare workers with the eye shield. Remember, your eyes have tears, and that's a way to enter the body. I always hated to wear the PPE when I was working at the hospital.
