The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
If I know 2020, and I’m pretty sure I do, Biden will win the popular vote by 4 or 5, running up the score in democratic bastions, but lose the entirety of the sun belt by 0-3 points including a very close race in Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Arizona. Biden will win WI and MI by slight margins and the PA result will take weeks and end in Supreme Court somehow giving trump the victory. The margin will be 19 votes (a nod to covid). Who wants to give me odds on this?

One of my good friends is not very cautious with her approach to COVID and it's made me pretty uncomfortable, so I recently decided I don't want to risk seeing her in person anymore. I thought I could just decline invites to meet up, but she's getting persistent. Is there a polite way to tell her the truth without coming off as judgmental? She can certainly make her own decisions; I just don't want to put myself at risk by meeting up.
