Colds in a Time of COVID

I’ve been attending meetings this week (hello, Balimore!), and one thing that I had to worry about was getting a cold. Because the meetings have strict symptoms-based policies (i.e., you can’t enter if you have symptoms), a simple cold will knock you out*. This isn’t a hypothetical issue either: one colleague almost wasn’t able to attend–it was a race to see if his symptoms would resolve in time**.

Anyway, wear a mask (a good one).

*In the U.S. anyway, microbiology meetings appear to be taking this very seriously, if not other health and medical meetings..

**The joys of having kids in elementary school.
