Absolutely it is. But these are people that live in the county. Working at Dollar General, gas stations. Going to church. Lot's of ways to get covid even in the country. If all you do is grab some gas and fish, you're safe.


No one is "safe"...but there is no sense in living in fear either. It's a virus that has a 99+% survival rating.

What I mean is it's save to fish. I mean you're by yourself. But I don't take stupid chances either. What you're not factoring in is death rate by age. Certainly higher at my age (60) than 1%. If you're 75 that number goes to around 10% according to cdc. This is nothing to take lightly. I was a microbiology major so well acquainted with study of pathogens and this is one to avoid. Don't live in fear but be smart about it. Best you can do. Fishing is about as safe a way to get outside as there is IMHO.

Well people seem to be doing social distancing with their vehicles also. Many of them are driving 10+ mph below the speed limit and they stay about 10 car lengths behind the person in front of them and drive side by side of another idiot so you can't go around them. Even at 10 car lengths behind, they will hit the brakes when they see the care in front of them hit the brakes. Total IDIOTS
I also see people driving by themselves with a mask on. Again more idiots. Do they think they are keeping from getting the virus from themselves by wearing a mask in the car?

Wearing the mask by themselves in the car boggles the mind. It's not that complicated. We have these 2 extremes instead of people just using common sense. Wear a mask when you have a reasonable chance of being exposed or exposing others. Being in your car or on your boat is not one of those times.

That's why I haven't been catching anything... it's the fish !

Seriously, my son works in Odessa and he contacted Covid last month. He had a very rough time, and still has a nagging cough, He has to take insulin for a while. It's nothing to take lightly.
Good luck

I wear mine all the time at work that I sometimes forget to take it off when I get into my car. Only a few minutes later to realize I still have it on... hammer

+1
Texas is the #1 state for Covaid-19. Wear a mask when around others and help beat this, then we can open up our life & business better.
Common sense we could have been using for awhile.
