High Blood Pressure And Saturday
Category: Member Blogs

One of the disturbing pieces of "news" about the Covid-19 epidemic concerns the use of high blood pressure medication, ACE inhibitors and ARBs.  There is now some evidence that they can provide an enhanced entry for the COVID virus into cells in the lungs.  You can do your own "research" with Mr. Google and make of this what you will.  But I'm guessing most of our members are on one of these meds.  Makes you think.


I just wish to say this about our upcoming match: during registration I will do my best to adhere to social distancing guidelines; in fact, I'll probably wear a mask of some sort.  You might also consider wearing a face cover during registration.  A simple bandana around the mouth and nose is fine.  Out on the firing line I wouldn't expect anything but "normal."


As a generalization, the COVID-19 epidemic doesn't scare me too much.  But as match director, I feel a few extra pangs of responsibility bordering on guilt.  What if somebody is ill or gets ill?  We all have the same questions and doubts, I'm sure, so let's just be a little careful Saturday.  Consider it along the lines of burning incense or making a pentagram around your garden.  Maybe it will help.  Can't hurt.
