Love In The Time of Cholera

Yesterday, we foraged for flour, eggs and sliced ham at a Vancouver Costco. Civil lineups, lots of hand sanitizer and diligent, sign-wielding employees reminding people to social distance. I flashed my Costco card and the door employee waved us in. No temperature check or mask required. Hand sanitizer at the many stations but still optional.

Vancouver’s Covid-19 rate has been flattening so the probability that an active carrier is in the store would be low.

But not zero, and that was the issue.
