Stay at home! And keep your people with you!

The summary of this post is pretty much going to be: Stay at home and wear a mask when you absolutely have to go out! There will likely be some reference to the 'Don't be a Dick' wall-hanging in my man cave that was the most amazing gift from my family-in-law a year or so ago.
