Can You Hang Out With Friends If You Stay 6 Feet Apart?

Can You Hang Out With Friends If You Stay 6 Feet Apart?

Social distancing has become the new normal for the majority of Americans in order to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Many folks across the country have been staying at home for the better part of a month, in accordance with directives from government and health officials.

When people need to leave their homes — to go to the grocery store or pharmacy, for example — health experts have advised maintaining a 6-foot distance from others. 

The rule has caused some people to wonder if it’s safe to see friends, chat with neighbors or go for “social distancing walks,” as long as the 6-foot distance is honored. While experts have urged people not to visit one another’s homes during the pandemic (sorry, but that’s not social distancing!), spending time in the great outdoors is undoubtedly a bit murkier.

To get some insight into the parameters of

7 Kinds of COVID-19 Relief for College Students

Colleges nationwide are closing their doors and moving to online-only learning amid the coronavirus pandemic. If you’re left in the lurch, the federal stimulus provides some student loan relief, but you’ll want to turn to your college for answers, too.

All students with federal loans qualify to delay payments, interest-free, through September. Some private lenders are offering forbearance as well.

Here is additional financial help that may be available to college students.

Independent students can get a stimulus check

Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, most undergraduate college students will not receive a stimulus check. That’s because your parents might have claimed you as a dependent on their tax return, and dependents don’t qualify. Most students under age 24 are considered dependents.

But students who are independent — like many graduate students and undergraduates older than 24 — will get the full $1,200 one-time amount if they

The World Needs Ventilators. Here’s the Snag

(Bloomberg Opinion) — In the face of a global health emergency, automakers are stepping in — or being summoned — to make ventilators. Can they manufacture at the scale required, with the world needing a 10-fold increase in production to cope with the surge in coronavirus infections? It will be a severe challenge.

Car companies such as Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. are a natural choice to mass-produce these medical devices. They churn out millions of vehicles every year, procuring and bringing together hundreds of parts from around the world at rapid speed. Ventilators needs anything from 400 to 1,000 components from tubes and sensors to pressure valves, humidification systems and filters. There is significant overlap between the engineering of ventilators and cars, which both bring together electronic, electric, hydraulic and mechanical aerodynamics expertise.

The parts are mostly different, though. The constituents of a ventilator

Justice Ginsburg continues 'essential' Supreme Court workouts during COVID-19 threat

Justice Ginsburg continues ‘essential’ Supreme Court workouts during COVID-19 threat

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg isn’t letting COVID-19 disrupt her world famous workouts.

The 87-year-old justice is still doing her planks and leg lifts inside the US Supreme Court at a “limited private space” set up for exercise at her request, spokeswoman Kathy Arberg confirmed to ABC News.

The Court’s regular fitness facility for the justices and staff has been closed to conform with social-distancing guidelines imposed by public health officials.

“Her doctors share her view that the training sessions are essential to her well-being,” Arberg said in a statement explaining the arrangement. “The space is being used exclusively by the Justice.”

Late last year, Ginsburg, the high court’s oldest member and celebrated feminist icon, was briefly hospitalized for a “stomach bug,” just weeks after undergoing treatment for a recurrence of pancreatic cancer.

In a January interview with CNN, Ginsburg said, “I’m cancer-free. That’s good.”

Throughout her health battles, Ginsburg has

At Miami-Dade commission meeting, a different coronavirus crisis at every turn

At Miami-Dade commission meeting, a different coronavirus crisis at every turn

Miami-Dade commissioners convened electronically for the first time Tuesday, holding a remote meeting that served as a legislative tour of scattered corners of the county’s coronavirus crisis.

Unemployed airport workers pleaded for help with health insurance, while their former employers warned of financial ruin without relief. South Dade nurseries said the national coronavirus shutdown landed in the middle of their prime spring growing season, adding a grim multiplier to every dollar lost.

The head of Jackson hospital’s union protested planned furloughs in the middle of a health crisis, and the leader of Miami-Dade’s domestic-violence board warned of a surge of incidents amid a shuttered economy, and a dwindling supply of shelter for victims. Crops left to die amid economic ruin were targeted for a massive county feeding operation in the works to sustain people through months of unemployment.

“We have to find a way to make sure the people being

After a tiger in the Bronx zoo tested positive for COVID-19 many are wondering again if pets, like dogs and cats, are susceptible to the coronavirus. Here's what an expert has to say.

Can pets get coronavirus? What to know after tiger’s COVID-19 positive

Animal lovers across America were unnerved after it was announced Sunday that a tiger in New York’s Bronx Zoo tested positive for the coronavirus. Nadia, a Malayan tiger, was diagnosed with COVID-19 after showing symptoms of a dry cough and loss of appetite. Several other tigers and lions have shown symptoms of respiratory illness and are presumed infected.

Although some experts say it’s unlikely pets can get or transmit COVID-19, Yahoo Lifestyle spoke with Dr. Tracey McNamara, former chief pathologist at the Bronx Zoo, to get some answers. Dr. McNamara played a crucial role in investigating 1999’s West Nile virus outbreak and was also a scientific adviser on the 2011 film Contagion. She tells Yahoo Lifestyle she is “not at all” surprised a tiger tested positive.

“That brings up all sorts of issues that I’ve been trying to address for two months. When you’re dealing with a new disease

What I Learned From Trying to Cut My Own Hair

(Bloomberg Opinion) — Writing to shareholders this week, BlackRock Inc.s chief executive officer Larry Fink ruminated on how business and society will be reshaped by the searing experience of the new coronavirus:

“People worldwide are fundamentally rethinking the way we work, shop, travel and gather. When we exit this crisis, the world will be different. Investors’ psychology will change. Business will change. Consumption will change. And we will be more deeply reliant on our families and each other to stay safe.”

I had a similar epiphany this week while trying to cut my own hair — it turns out my regular $30 haircut isn’t as essential as I’d thought. Preparing a meal for my family later that evening made me think that eating out or getting dinner delivered isn’t as rewarding as home cooking. Right now the do-it-yourself version also feels a whole lot safer, and probably will do for

Trump’s Critics Attack His Optimistic Case for Hydroxychloroquine

Trump’s Critics Attack His Optimistic Case for Hydroxychloroquine

President Donald Trump’s foes are foaming at the mouth again. Since late March, the president has dreamed that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), perhaps coupled with Zithromax (azithromycin), might defeat COVID-19, for which there is no cure or vaccine. Trump discussed this 65-year-old anti-malaria drug at a daily briefing on this pandemic. “It’s shown very, very encouraging early results” among researchers, Trump said. These two drugs “taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine,” he stated via Twitter.

“Very encouraging” and “real chance” are words of aspiration, not prescription. And Trump repeatedly has said that these drugs ultimately might fail, but nonetheless should be investigated.

“If we’re going to go into labs and test all of this for a long time, we can test it on people right now who are in serious trouble, who are dying,” Trump told journalists. “If
