Went out to get supplies today (more coffee and butter and bacon). The husband went in and facetimed me, while I sat safe in the car. We were near a hospital shortly after shift change, and I saw 3 different people in scrubs go in or out of the store.
I made the husband sanitize his skin and take off the sweatshirt he was wearing when he came out.

From a medical standpoint, as long as you dampen the surfaces (all of them) tnat should work. If you have a unit with all kinds of nooks, slots and crannies that could be a problem. What that will do to your equipment, I leave to techier folks than i!

And this oldie, reviewing use of aspirin at insanely high doses during the 1918 pandemic increased mortality (and might partially account for the excess mortality in young adults.) Lesson here: toxic doses are bad. Don’t be surprised if this is used as evidence against ibuprofen. It is not.
