    Nancy,

    I have to call the hernia surgeon this morning for a over the
    phone COVID-19 screening.

    Just checking for symptoms now, then... ;)

    They just asked the questions and took the forehead temperature.
    Thankfully, the COVID-19 test didn't have to be done rectally, in public...although they said one of the "signs" of it was diarrhea.
    That can happen from food bacteria, virus germs, or strange water.

    So did that push you to have steak for breakfast....? ;)

    No. I ended up going to a local franchise called David's Burgers.
    With ordering a combo, you get unlimited french fries. They had
    several tables "marked off" for "social distancing" (unavailable),
    but at least I could eat in.

    What really disappointed me what that Arby's got rid of their
    Grand Turkey Club sandwich. While their Chicken Parmesan is OK,
    I preferred the Grand Turkey Club. Now that I think of it, they
    may have gotten rid of the chicken parmesan as well.

    That's most typical, unless one is actually going in for surgery or some procedure.... :)

    I didn't know that there was a rectal COVID-19 test, actually, just that not-so-pleasant nasal probe.... And while diarrhea is one possible
    symptom, most are more respiratory symptoms which also have many
    possible causes other than this one nasty virus...

    Yes, I'm rather happy that some places are now able to allow eat-in...
    I've quite missed that option... here one does need to wear a face
    covering coming in and leaving, and the tables are either spread for distancing, or as at your place, some blocked off as unavailable for the
    same purpose... but those are minor inconveniences.... :)

    That's the trouble with the major food chains.... they introduce special
    items which they might even keep for a while, but eventually they end up dropping them, even if it happens to be your favorite item....

    Nancy,

    They just asked the questions and took the forehead temperature.

    That's most typical, unless one is actually going in for surgery or
    some procedure.... :)

    The morning of my surgery, they took my temperature, and asked the
    questions. The actual COVID-19 test was done 3 days earlier.

    I didn't know that there was a rectal COVID-19 test, actually, just
    that not-so-pleasant nasal probe.... And while diarrhea is one
    possible symptom, most are more respiratory symptoms which also have
    many possible causes other than this one nasty virus...

    No, there isn't one, but I agree that it's a respiratory disease, and
    not a digestive tract disease. Food bacteria, virus germs, and strange
    water (or drinking too much fluid) will give you diarrhea. And, that dual
    nasal probe is NOT pleasant. I'd rather have the prostate check, with the doctor having a swollen finger...I thought I'd pass out when they did the COVID-19 test...never mind worrying about a nosebleed.

    Yes, I'm rather happy that some places are now able to allow eat-in... I've quite missed that option... here one does need to wear a face covering coming in and leaving, and the tables are either spread for distancing, or as at your place, some blocked off as unavailable for
    the same purpose... but those are minor inconveniences.... :)

    There have literally been fights and brawls at restaurants, where the
    police had to be called...because even though there are signs on the doors telling customers that "masks are required, until your food and drink gets
    to your table"...many come in without them. When the employees call these "selfish customers" down, the idiots cuss them out, throw food and drink
    at them, etc. Many restaurants have just shut their dining rooms down,
    and made it only "drive thru", or just closed down altogether.

    That's the trouble with the major food chains.... they introduce
    special items which they might even keep for a while, but eventually
    they end up dropping them, even if it happens to be your favorite
    item....

    Even items I used to see in the store. Years ago, Betty Crocker had
    a "Mug-O-Lunch". My favorite was beef and noodles in gravy...that product
    is long gone.

    ... It was a fancy restaurant with, like, real plates and stuff.

    I would say so. The thing is, this tagline comes to mind...

    Makes sense, as it takes a little time to get the results... and that's
    what I meant.... Most places ask the questions and often check the temp
    as well...

    I haven't heard of that sort of thing happening here... Maybe people are
    just more polite here in upstate New York...

    Nancy,

    as well...

    Several cities in Arkansas now are requiring masks if you're in public.
    I don't wear mine while driving or eating/drinking, but it's on otherwise.

    I haven't heard of that sort of thing happening here... Maybe people
    are just more polite here in upstate New York...

    So many have forgotten what "The Golden Rule" and "Common Sense" are.

    Especially the products you like.
