Here's an easy cheap common sense way to cut back on some Coronavirus spread

Businesses and offices could put door stops in their front doors. Yesterday, I left a doctor's office and had to turn the knob. At another doctor's office, the door wasn't closed all the way so I just leaned against it to open it. Then, at the accountant's office, the door was wide open, probably because it was the first pretty day of the year. Anyway, this old brown rubber doorstops could stop some transmission if a PSA was put out to businesses and people got the word.

Yeah, "stop" pretty much has to be in it. I'm going to call the Chamber of Commerce Monday and see if it can catch hold in my small town. If it takes off, the rubber door stop people will be caught off guard.

We are not allowed to prop a door or window open, or even allowed the door to left unlocked. This is due to safety rules following the Parkland shooting.

My doctor's office has its door propped open during business hours for just this reason. But then this office is on the ground floor of a multi-business building with a lobby, so the door to the outside is a distance away. That's where the sleeve maneuver comes into play.

About a month ago I was sitting in the doctor's office. A teenager came in and the receptionist caught him right away and told him he tested or the flu and gave him a mask. They rushed him back to the doctor and he left soon after through the main door. I thought for sure someone would wipe off the knob, but they didn't. So I had to touch it when I left.
