That issue is not gonna stop me from RVing! As others have said above, take precautions and enjoy your RV.

Folks, do an Internet search for “covid-20” or “cov-20” or “covid 20” or anything of the like. People are using the term for all kinds of things (including the 20 pounds you put on during the panic), but I can find no such disease classification, let alone any data such as how long it survives on a surface.

Also, if you read my earlier post, you will note that a virus living on a surface does not mean the disease is contractable from the surface.

I stated in an earlier post that I refuse to be a covidphobe. I think that coronaphobia rolls off the tongue a little easier. I won’t be a coronaphobe.

Same for sewage treatment plant workers.

I heard some say they learn how to keep their hands away from their faces, learn how to spit, and all probably have been immunized for Hepatitis and other filth born diseases.

As for the earlier suggestion to use only full hookup sites as you're the only one there, what about all the other people who used the site before over the years.

Tank dumping is part of RVing. Only way to avoid it is to hire someone to do it.
They also are supplied PPE as OSHA regulations require. When I had to dump airplane lavs 15-20 years ago, I had to wear gloves over my elbows, a rubber apron, rubber boots, face shield and safety glasses.

At a minimum, gloves are just smart, and that was before covid.
