    Wisconsin numbers have been lower, but still not great. Nothing here is closed, but most places are at limited capacity. Our house has 20 lanes, but the building is huge, so capacity gets based on square footage. We're pretty much the only team that wears masks all the time, and 3 of our guys have gotten it. One of them badly, but he's okay now. Of course, we have pharmacists ruining entire supplies of vaccine, for what reason we still don't know. Hard to know what to make of anything around here.

    Talked to one of my teammates last night and he and his family may have been exposed and have been tested. He obviously won't be there tomorrow. His daughter tested positive a few months ago but had no symptoms. Him and his wife and the same daughter were with friends this past weekend and those friends tested positive on Thursday. The friend and his wife and daughter have no symptoms but each got tested to be sure. Hopefully they come back negative but will be interesting if the daughter tests positive since she already had it before

    People who have been exposed really shouldn't get tested until 5-7 days after exposure. The tests only provide a snapshot of status at the time of the test. It takes 3-5 days for the virus to incubate, so if someone gets tested right away they may test negative even though they really are infected. Regardless, hopefully they escaped getting the virus! My teammate still hasn't bowled now almost 6 weeks after getting the virus. One of our other league members who was hospitalized at one point is now back to bowling. Another league member still in the hospital, and has been for a few weeks now. We had another league member recently return to bowling after testing positive and staying home for 2 weeks. They said, oddly enough, their spouse never caught it. Their only symptom during the 2 weeks was feeling extreme fatigue like they had never experienced before.

    That's the case with nearly any sickness from a virus or bacteria - or even brewing beer! It takes some time for the virus or bacteria (or yeast) to propagate enough to affect the system (or to start fermentation stage) - before that it may not be detectable by a test.

    I have a batch of pale ale in the fermenter right now - should be almost done. I can use a TASTE test on it right now. . . easy to test that.

    Many people who get exposed immediately run and get a test the next day, and then breathe a sigh of relief when it comes out negative. Meanwhile, it took 3-4 days to get the results and by then they actually are sick but don't think they are. They continue their routine and unknowingly expose others. Then there are the people that test positive, but don't feel sick, so they decide to go out and about. We have had bowlers freely admit that they would not be able to stay "cooped up" at the house for 10-14 days and would still leave their house if they tested positive.

    Talked to him last night. They were tested 5 or 6 days after exposure but came back negative.

    That's good news!

    Despite a growing number of customers and employees coming down with the virus, our bowling center is gradually shifting away from the "social distancing" measures and migrating back to normal levels. Especially on busy days. Previously they would leave one empty lane between bowlers. Now, when it is busy, they are packing the lanes instead of making people wait for a lane. They are also getting away from the "alcohol only with a meal" rule and basically just letting people order from the bar without food. I know we are all experiencing pandemic fatigue, but seriously...
