Bringing home the (healthy) kids from college - social distancing enough?

If there is already a post on this, I apologize. My daughter is (hopefully) returning home (to Central Oregon) on Saturday, from the East coast. She and some other college friends have been out hiking in the Smoky Mountains/surroundings. They drove from Hanover, NH to the outskirts of Boston, where they stayed with a student's family. As they were driving south toward Tennessee, each night they stayed with students' families. They have been as careful as they can, but obviously have been doing some food shopping and other transactions. They are hiking for another day or so, then driving back toward the Boston area, dropping off students on the way back.

My daughter will fly from Boston Logan (direct) to Portland, OR, where we will pick her up and drive her home. My husband and I are ages 58 and 63 and healthy. So, is social distancing enough, or should she/we take more prudent measures? She will want to visit with her high school friends, who are also all home early. Thinking about where the balance is of being prudent, careful, cautious.

Appreciate any thoughts and links to articles on this (including measures she can take at the airport and on the airplane)

From a friend on FB about making a call today for the ACA

Here's an easy phone call you can make today and you don't even have to talk to anybody. Paul Ryan's office is conducting a phone poll hoping to hear overwhelming opposition to the Affordable Care Act (ACA); here's how you can participate. Call 202-225-3500. Call now and PROVE him wrong.
At the first menu, press #2 and a staffer will educate you on why you shouldn't want the ACA. Press #1 when prompted to support continuing the ACA coverage. The House votes on this today, so please call now.
I was even able to leave a voicemail message in speaker Ryan's mailbox. Please take three minutes to make this call, then copy and paste this to pass it along.
If you don't get through at first, call again, I was able to get through on the first call.

Share this far & wide:Protesters will march to Donald Trumps Mar-a-Lago during his Florida vacation

Via the Palmer Report:

In the eleven days since Donald Trump has been in office, the protests against him ó both preplanned and spontaneous ó have been massive and sustained. The Womenís March overtook entire cities. This weekendís protests against Trumpís Muslim ban have taken over airports and public squares. Recent protests outside the White House shut down Pennsylvania Avenue. And now comes an organized protest outside Donald Trumpís other home, to coincide with his imminent vacation there.

ACLU Receives $10M In Donations, And 150,000 New Members, Since Yesterday!

article via Daily Kos:

Iím old enough to remember the protests of the 60ís. Thereís a couple of big differences this time. As bad as Nixon was, Trump makes Nixon look like George Washington. We knew we could impeach Nixon if we found enough evidence, and because the Democrats would do the right thing. Every indication is the fascist GOP is perfectly willing to dump our democracy for more power and a tax cut. The other difference is, in the 60ís it was mostly the youth who were fighting for their future. Today, itís still seems like itís mostly the people from the 60ís, but now a whole new generation is waking up and starting to join in the fight to save our democracy their future! We really are stronger together.

The response to the open display of fascism has been remarkable!
