Zinc and Vitamin C are used to improve the general health. Not really COVID 19 specific.
There are other methods, like, start taking Echinacea. It'll boost your immune system.
Zinc is found in Mushrooms, chocolate powder (dark chocolate), beans, greens, or in food supplements.
It's always good to regularly take a multivitamin (once a week or so), and additional to that, supplements supplementing what you lack in your diet.

Yes, but too many people are concentrating on the "no mask, no distancing" part of the announcement and not paying attention to all of the limitations on that advice from CDC. There are many circumstances where they should still mask and distance.

As for myself, I'm eligible to get the vaccine here in MA, but not an open appointment available within 30-40 miles. At least my parents and RN sister have been able to get their shots, but my father's second dose was delayed due to a hospitalization.

Too many people are concentrating on the issue of government overreach in protecting the public from itself. I'm more interested in staying alive and avoiding COVID for myself and others I know. We used to play cards a couple times a month and I'll be glad to get back to seeing those friends in person. Sure, it can be done on-line but getting together over dessert again will be a welcome change.
