    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Typhoid Mary was arrested based on circumstantial evidence of her infection, but she was not sentenced to quarantine until after she was tested and she was determined to have extremely high levels of the bacteria in her system that caused Typhoid. Seems to me that's a bit different than quarantining people before they are even tested, just based on who they may have been in contact with. There are also important differences in Typhoid and SARS-CoV-2 that I think make the situations non-comparable. Typhoid is caused by bacteria in feces. SARS-CoV-2 is a virus transmitted in the air by droplets and aerosols. There's a giant slippery slope in there if you're relying on the case of Typhoid Mary's extraordinary fecal bacteria levels to justify quarantining anyone who may have come into contact with an aerosolized viral particle.

    Saying that people potentially exposed to a virus are "not healthy" and justifying quarantines that way.... I dunno...... I think a lot of people are wondering how far you're willing to take this. Roughly 50% of influenza infections are asymptomatic, and it's been estimated that asymptomatic carriers of influenza transmit the virus to about 6% of household contacts (which may be even higher than the asymptomatic transmission rate of SARS-CoV-2). Influenza kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people worldwide each year, which is obviously less than the acute pandemic stage of COVID-19 has been, but is likely to be more than endemic COVID-19 will be once we reach a certain level of infection and vaccines have been equitably distributed worldwide. Annual flu vaccines are also generally between 40%-60% effective (some years as low as 10%), and you just know that influenza is going to come roaring back in the next couple of years after its virtual disappearance over the past 18 months. Plus, hockey is a winter sport with a regular season that coincides almost exactly with the CDC's definition of "flu season". So where are we once COVID-19 subsides and flu is back? And how about other highly transmissible respiratory illnesses like Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which can also transmit asymptomatically and has relatively high mortality rates for the elderly and young children, and for which there is no vaccine? Or other coronaviruses. I've read that HCoV-OC43 and HCoV-229E have estimated case fatality rates of >10% among the elderly, even though they cause mild cold symptoms or are asymptomatic in most people. Really, aren't we all, to a certain extent, Schroedinger's cat when it comes to transmissible viruses?

    the more you guys talk about it, the more i think about the staff. the elevator attendants we see every game and our regular seat usher are all on the older side. being a vaccine and mask nazi is totally worth it to keep those people healthy. regardless, i'll definitely be doing my best not to contribute to any problems.
