The Spring 2020 wine sale was canceled due to caution around the corona virus pandemic, but the show will go on for the Fall sale from Wednesday, November 4 through Tuesday, November 10: 20% off any and all wine. Then, sorry, it’s back to GO’s regular exorbitant wine prices.
That said, I exhort and plead with everyone to prioritize corona virus safety over getting that last case of your favorite wine. My understanding is that it is primarily spread through small droplets from the mouth small enough to float and linger in the air for a long time, that are then inhaled through and bind to receptors in the nasal / sinus tissue. The statistic I read from a study in Italy is that “70% of people under 70 have no symptoms,” but are quite capable of spreading it if infected, and symptoms and mortality rise rapidly with age after that. So wear a mask with a good seal around your mouth (to protect others, especially family) and nose (to protect yourself, and also family). The more we get cases down, the sooner we can re-open schools, businesses, etc. But also, don’t panic. If everyone is well masked and talking calmly, your brief encounters in a grocery store are unlikely to spread this virus. For example, no one at the store where I work has gotten sick (fingers crossed).
Sorry to keep going on about this, but here are two popular articles that contain most of the basis for my understanding:
We Need to Talk About Ventilation
How is it that six months into a respiratory pandemic, we are still doing so little to mitigate airborne transmission?
And here is an article written by someone who thought it was no big deal but wound up spreading it among his family:
Ok, let’s get back to wine. Please use comments here to write about what you’re scoping out, looking for more of, where you found it, and what you would up getting and liking or not liking. After the sale, the discussion will probably mostly return to the “What’s New?” comments. Thank you!!!
