  • How To Celebrate Thanksgiving More Safely In A COVID-19 Pandemic

    As Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and other winter holidays approach, the US is battling a record-breaking surge of coronavirus infections. Business Insider reports Dr. Anthony Fauci says small indoor gatherings are driving new spread, so people should consider avoiding them. You get one person who's asymptomatic and infected, and then all of a sudden four or five people in that gathering are infected. That's the exact scenario that you're going to see in Thanksgiving. Dr. Anthony Fauci Most public health experts generally agree that time spent together should be limited, and masks should be worn except when eating and drinking. If the gathering can't be held outside, the room should be well-ventilated and fitted with a HEPA filter. Finally, drive to your destination instead of flying or taking the train. You'll be able to control your environment better that way. Happy holidays!

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
