Covid Rules …

Today I’m bringing you the very best of Covid Rules and explaining the complicated Science being them.

We were treated like idiots for two years. We must never, ever forget.

The Rule:

We had to wear masks when entering a restaurant and walking to the table, but were allowed to remove the mask when seated at the table. Mask had to be reapplied in order to leave.

The Science:

Covid doesn’t spread when you’re eating and drinking

The Rule:

No-one was allowed out in public except to riot over the death of George Floyd

The Science:

A pandemic of racism (yes that’s actually what some media called it) was more deadly than an actual pandemic

The Rule:

Curfews

The Science:

Covid can tell time

The Rule:

In Ohio, the sport of wrestling was permitted but competitors were not allowed to shake hands at the end of the bout.

The Science:

The Covid hated good sports.

The Rule:

Melbourne residents were told it was “not in the spirit of the lockdown” to watch the sun set.

The Science:

The Covid kept a list of people who glanced at the setting sun and eventually infected them

The Rule:

People walking alone on secluded beaches were arrested

The Science:

An infected walker could infect grains of sand, or possibly even fish

The Rule:

Go safe, go “glory hole”. Also, don’t rape people.

The Science:

Covid will not attempt to infect sexual deviants

The Rule:

When sitting in a park you and your friends were required to sit within circles painted on the grass

The Science:

The Covid agreed not to penetrate inside the painted circles but that anyone outside the circles was fair game.

The Rule:

In France people had to fill out a form authorizing themselves to go outside for a walk. In the absence of a form, people could write a letter and sign it, or else give themselves permission via an app. If you left the house without giving yourself written permission to do so, you had to pay a fine.

The Science:

Covid would not spread if you had a note saying you were taking the pandemic seriously

The Rule:

Do not speak in the elevator

The Science:

Covid respects silence

The Rule:

AFL goal posts needed to be disinfected by men in hazmat suits

The Science:

Researchers calculated that it was technically possible for an infected player to touch the ball which, when kicked, might hit the post, transferring the Covid from player to ball to post. A player who subsequently touched the post and then inadvertently put his finger near his mouth could get Covid, maybe.

The Rule:

Supermarket workers were required to operate behind a perspex safety screen even though they were touching all the grocery items you had just touched before returning them to you for transportation home whereupon you would touch them again.

The Science:

The Covid got confused by the perspex screen and forgot it could transmit itself via people’s hands.

The Rule:

In the UK you were not allowed to drink an alcoholic beverage on site unless you also ate something

The Science:

Opening your mouth to pour liquid into would attract the Covid but opening your mouth to shove food down it would not.
