It's the thing now. Hotels are putting stickers here and there, showing that this and that have been thoroughly sanitized, and now there's the wrapper around the TV remote control. Since Seinfeld reruns don't come on TBS anymore, or hardly ever, even if there's no blog post to write, the TV need never come on anyway.
However, I noticed the blue wrapper shown above* a few weeks ago, while on a trip. I guess every one of the buttons, most of which I wouldn't press simply due to the fact that I can't make out what the stupid icon means, were scrubbed down for COVID cooties. I feel sorry for the housekeepers for probably getting lectures weekly about new cleaning policies to cover the hotel's ass from lawsuits and/or to comply with the Governor's latest whim before he changes his mind again about your being able to do business.
This type of wrapper should have been on remote controls at all hotels, at bars, and at every home in the country for the last 50 years. Rather than let us know we are safe from the Kung Flu, they should have red warning labels on them, every one:
* And, man, was it a bitch to slide that thing off in one piece for later scanning for this post. That glue is viscous and vicious, both.
