My wifes company has another case. Tbey had an outbreak at the beginning of the pandemic and 2 people  died.

They made people wfh for 3 months and made everyone come back. Now today they said there is another case and everyone needs to get a test before monday and they are going to have the office closed for at least 1 week to see how the tests come back.

I have already asked my wife to just quit and we will live poor until she finds something new. Her greedy boss is putting hundreds of lives at risk for no reason. they can successfully wfh but he insists everyone be in the office. 

I already told my wife if she comes back positive that i want to send him all medical bills

 

There should be restrictions for this crap where the owners of companies should be responsible for this negligence 

 

a quick update. my wife's test came back negative. she wants me to get a test just to be sure too. i havent left the house in about 1 month, so i am not worried about having it. 

anyway, im going to sleep good tonight. i honestly didnt sleep much the last 2 nights

Intriguing. I've never heard of Parler.  I might have to check this out.

If Twitter doesn’t have enough conspiracy theories or promote  enough false information - parler is for you.

I think I’ll be getting a COVID vaccine in the near future. Two shots with a couple days off after each one.

Go on...

Well, I guess that’s it. I’ll get a couple needles shoved in me. I’ll either be protected against COVID or “I Am Legend” becomes real life.

It depends on the lab and how backed up they are.... it can be fast or take a little while longer.  Wouldn't worry unless you are experiencing symptoms.  Drink lots of immune boost, zinc, magnesium and D3 vitamins.  Exercise  a bit... so you can eat plenty over TG...  Admitted 5 covid pts today.  Looks like a few more.

There are two results from the trial of more than 20,000 volunteers in the UK and Brazil.

Overall, there were 30 cases of Covid in people who had two doses of the vaccine and 101 cases in people who received a dummy injection. The researchers said it worked out at 70% protection, which is better than the seasonal flu jab.

Nobody getting the actual vaccine developed severe-Covid or needed hospital treatment.

Prof Andrew Pollard, the trial's lead investigator, said he was "really pleased" with the results as "it means we have a vaccine for the world".

However, protection was 90% in an analysis of around 3,000 people on the trial who were given a half-sized first dose and a full-sized second dose.

Any chance we have a normal summer?

Yes. I would have thought it would have been another 3-4 months before these vaccine results came back but this is good news. The real question is distribution and production. A lot of manufactures went full force into production once their phase 2 trails showed good results so there are millions of doses ready to go but how they get delivered and who gets them first is the real next question. Realistically 65+ and Medical Professionals are the first in line. Might put teachers behind them to get schools back up and going. Will probably be much better in the summer and I would say hopefully by next fall we are at vaccination rates high enough to truly be back to normal.

Now the real 100$ question... Once things are "normal" can we please get rid of the damn plexiglass everywhere? Chances are places aren't going to take them down, but I can't hear anybody with those and the mask inside.

Because it costs money and they paid for them to be up, I wonder if they think "Meh, they're up, it's still fighting germs"

If I'm them I take them down asap and try and put the pandemic, with the politics and unease with it, behind them. But yeah that stuff costs money so I'm assuming they'll just store it for later use if they need it again; definitely be dumb to toss it.

I think you will see the opposite. They will keep them up until the vast majority of people feel comfortable, which means they will take them down with the complaints outweigh the benefits.

Coworkers mother died from COVID-19 over the weekend.  Another coworker took his mother to the hospital for it this weekend.  He’s quarantined too now.  And yet another coworker found out he was exposed multiple times last week.  A close friend that he’d been spending alot of time with tested positive over the weekend.  Thought she had a cold.  Maybe she did, but she had Covid too.  So now we are all wondering if we are going to be quarantined when the contact tracing completes.

Pretty sure I’m canceling the small gatherings we were planning for Thanksgiving now.  No way I am risking exposing our parents.
