Dear people who are ill,
Do not go to the grocery store where you will pass people who are well and who do not want to ingest your sick germs. Do not go to work where you force other captives of the employ to share your cough and sneeze germ cloud. If you are feeling under the weather, DO take your temperature and make sure it is 98.6 before you leave the house. If it is elevated, please see the above plea.
If you are starving because your cupboards are bare, order online from a supermarket delivery service - or send someone who is well. Preferably someone who is well and is NOT incubating whatever it is you have. If you are out of milk, just drink water. It is better for a phlegm problem anyway.
In short, there are some potentially dangerous sick bugs circulating, and we do not want them. The well people want to stay well. I know I advocate sharing, but in this instance, Resist The Urge.
Get well soon,
