Yes, follow the health protocols. Good mask, limit time and distance exposure. Wash/sanitize hands.
A close friend is a Hospitalist. Although now many Omicron infections are less severe, there are more hospitalizations because of the huge number of infections. These hospitalizations are just as severe as with the Delta variant. He has witnessed many deaths. Do what you can to avoid it or spread it.

Just wait five to ten days to pick it up. It’s not like they are going to sell it

l'm playing with just having him set the box out the front door as no paper work or fee $ is involved
Wear a KN95 and nitrile gloves and unwrap in the garage ..pitch the gloves n box in the trash
Or wait 😣

I think you're smart to ask him to place the gun outside the door after you arrive. I have also buried a co-worker, 3 close friends and 2 family members who all died of Covid in the past 12 months. The 3 friends all died in the past 2 months, the co-worker just last week. Our office is still reeling from his death.

If you go this route bring you a can of Lysol and spray it down good as well. If I knew the store workers had COVID this is what I’d do.

Well ..nature has intervened on behalf of us whose patience on scale of 1 to 10 is about a 2.5 ...well OK 1.5 :cool:
I had/have the tracking # and it was delivered 3 hours ago ...
So I called ..no answer ..His wife was the one down with COVID ..but he told me on the phone yesterday he felt fine other than no smell or taste ..
The UPS delivered notice said "delivered inside and signed"
So I would say he's down and probably had his 20's something daughter receive shipments and will be closed until healed
I'm fine waiting ..no problem on my end:doh:

I have the guys personal cell number ..I guess I will call him and see if the family needs any help with supplies of any kind ..seems the right thing to do now anyhow

Woody your attitude is pretty much how I would normally operate

Just hard to get out of my mind the dear and close friends I've had to help bury ..worse ..most were younger and with less age related health stuff than me

I understand, believe me. Spent three weeks early December covidizing then another coupla weeks fighting pneumonia. Slowly getting better day by day
