Guitar Center Reopening

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey just announced that retail can reopen on May 8th. My entire body is quivering with excitement at the thought of my local Guitar Center opening their doors for business. They’d better be ready for a herd of musicians with major GAS.

The one near me has reopened with hours from 12 to 7 with requirements that customers maintain six foot distancing and you have to wear a mask to come inside.

You crazy kids be safe fighting the crowds to get in. I’m going to hold off going for a while. I’ve got an extra pack of strings and all the picks I’ll ever need.

No fighting here, But I look forward to going.
I have been out a lot, in my area nobody is staying in much. I personally don’t fear the Virus, that said, I do not belittle anybody who does. To each their own, fully respected.
Like my folks have not been out of the house for 6 weeks, and at their age, to catch it may be certain death. I don’t visit, because I go out a lot, and in case I was exposed, I don’t want to infect them.
I found out that my mother’s cousin, similar age, actually did get Corona, verified by several tests.
She quarantined in her house, with medical help coming to her, and got thru it after 3 weeks.
Apparently, she was not as susceptible to the virus as others, and those that are get it bad, and possibly die, those that are not get it more mild, and get over it after a few weeks.
She has also been re tested to verify she no longer has it.
I do not know if that now makes her immune or not???
Anyway, I will be at my local GC soon after they re open to NOT BUY ANYTHING, just to touch and try lots of new things.

They opened non-essentials this month in Germany. I thought it a bit weird that the shop clerks didn’t care at all about those rules which also apply to them.

Tokyo is extending ours, thank goodness. Though unfortunately it’s still a soft lockdown and it is being somewhat ignored.

Of course as a result of this the hospitals are also full and there’s apparently a two-hour average wait in ambulances as they search for somewhere to take you. And this is for a place with some of the best medical services in the world.

Just saw an article about a guy in Sendai who got it, eventually needed medical attention, called 119 (emergency services), an ambulance came right away, started calling around, and he finally got to the hospital 4h16m later.
