  1. I thought there was a prior strip where it was said she was spending quarantine with them but now I cannot find it and must have imagined it…

  2. That might be a really long visit.

    Though I guess after she’s been in quarantine long enough to be 100% “clean,” she can return home safely.

    As we discussed last week, once a cartoonist lets C-19 into their strips, there’s really no turning back.

  3. Cynthia is intelligent, but not very sensible, and not one to follow the rules. Maybe she snuck her friend in.

    Or maybe the next strip will reveal they are VR conferencing.

  4. “That might be a really long visit.” I have a few friends who *are* doing such visits. (One of them I’m a little annoyed with as she flew out a few days before the Shelter in place edict was put in place (in California) but far enough into the epidemic that we knew contact and travel was risky. Thing is she’s very vocal about sheltering in place and social distancing— I kind of don’t see how one can justify flying in an airplane 2000 miles to begin a shelter in place)

  5. Then again…. there’s today’s strip

    This (Barney and Clyde sitting under a true *not* social distancing *while* talking about the pandemic) is the sort of half-assed acknowledgement that is worse than no acknowledgement. I didn’t comment on the other thread but I’m happy with strips acknowledging it but they can’t do it half-assedly.

    Or maybe all this is leading up to some meta-strip where it is revealed all of this is happening in some virtual world (maybe even an acknowledgement that this is a fictional comic universe).

  6. “I thought there was a prior strip where it was said she was spending quarantine with them but now I cannot find it and must have imagined it…”

    Well, she stayed for dinner one night (while the strip was discussing covid 19). In this day, I’d say “staying for dinner” = “moving in for a few months”)
