No, but an going to see a elderly relative today, and we had to make an appointment (1/2 hr visit) in a heated tent outside of the facility for 2, and we have to wear masks as the person we are seeing will have one also. I voted by mail this year.

I bet it was a big help to your relative to have you with them as they ran through the gauntlet to get to the doctor! I work in one of those mazes: a primary care clinic on the side of a hospital. We finally moved the tents indoord because it's cooooold up here in the high desert of Oregon. The hospital hired 'greeters' who screen every soul who approaches the hospital. It's all rather intimidating, even to those of us who work there. Thank you for help them!  And, four ears are better than two when it comes to following medical advice!
