Parody or Covid safety: Let's talk about sex, baby!

As always, h/t to El Gato Malo, the inspiration for our rule of Covid safety:

without knowledge of a speaker’s priors, any sufficiently risk averse Covid practice is indistinguishable from parody.

Have Canadians completely lost their minds?

From the article:

Dr Theresa Tam said in a statement there is little chance of catching COVID-19 from semen or vaginal fluid, but sexual activity with new partners does increase the risk of contracting the virus, particularly if there is close contact like kissing.

“Like other activities during COVID-19 that involve physical closeness, there are some things you can do to minimize the risk of getting infected and spreading the virus,” she said.

Skip kissing, avoid face-to-face closeness, wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose, and monitor yourself and your partner for symptoms ahead of any sexual activity, Tam said.

“The lowest risk sexual activity during COVID-19 involves yourself alone,” she added.

There you have it, folks. Just masturbate.

I’m reminded of the late, great George Carlin, when he said, “This is what our system produces, folks. Garbage in, garbage out!”

Of course he was talking about politicians. He might as well have been talking about public health.

Then again, at least Tam didn’t post this on Twitter…
