    • qwaze, you are misunderstanding the concept of "herd immunity".  The term arises from production animal medicine where producers want to minimize losses among livestock for economic reasons. It is generally achieved via vaccination. Producers do not want the kind of herd immunity process through contagion that you describe because that creates unsustainable economic losses. That is why producers are sometimes required to destroy entire herds or flocks to minimize the spread. We don't do the equivalent of that with humans for obvious reasons. In the scheme of things, recreational kid activities this summer should be pretty low down on the priority list. For starters, the workplace needs to get a lot safer for essential workers. Then we can start thinking about phasing in other aspects of daily life and the economy. Some of the models out today are talking about measures being in place until August so we'll see what happens.   
    • The feet will be wet (damp) most of the day. But good socks (or no socks at all I guess) make wet feet comfortable because they get air to the skin.  I can't imagine no socks, but I can see if the boots are well broken-in with bare feet, that might work. Interesting. Barry
    • Fed guidelines, at all levels of healthcare, are to delay any elective medical visits, surgery, etc.  In MA, step further, as part of the governors stay-at-home orders, elective procedures are required to be delayed until at least May 4th, or for as long as the order is in place.  My sons physical was rescheduled to late June, and his dental cleanings was rescheduled until June as well.
    • I was pleasantly surprised by these covered toe water shoes from BassPro: https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/world-wide-sportsman-lost-river-water-shoes-for-men The neoprene liner makes them very comfortable without socks.  They dry out almost instantly.  I wore thick poly socks for portages to resist pebbles and sand.  The soles are thick enough that you don't feel every rock poking through when you've got a 17 foot canoe on your back; and they held to my foot well so that I wasn't slipping and sliding around in my wet shoes.  No ankle support; but when I'm kneeling in the boat, that's a good thing. I'm still enjoying them as my go-to fishing shoes.
    • I went to NT about a decade or so ago. Used Altima boots and they held up fine. I don't remember my feet being wet to too big a deal. After we set up camp, everybody took off their wet socks and either got in the tent or sat around camp in dry socks and camp shoes.
