It'll take a few weeks for code red to have its measured impact but this is encouraging. Beats 300+ cases per day.

This place is a tire fire and cases continue to rise by the day. After getting big heads in the spring and summer, we've made our beds now thinking we'd beaten the pandemic. Arrogance and ignorance led us to this.

We did our best work in the lockdown state, so here's hoping that these measures will result in some success. Big difference is last time there was hardly an 'outbreak' to speak so our starting point couldn't be more opposite.

I agree we are not starting from zero or very few cases this time around. Now a lot of people are going to feel the effects of some very careless people. If you would like to help seniors or people in need there are some great programs out there.

Very nasty day today. 239 new cases with 15 more deaths, 11 of them at Maples. 163 of these cases are in Winnipeg, with a TPR of 13.1%. I am not surprised that this is happening at Revera run buildings.

 My mother had a short stay at one of Revera's nursing homes. She was in a wheelchair but the rooms are not setup for people in wheelchairs. The staff was over worked, and under staffed. The manager blew us off as much as they could and gave us generic answers. The first few months she was there a number of people died.  We decided to move her to a smaller private nursing home. Best move we ever made.

The US. had 184,000 new cases yesterday.

Well it's been 8 days finally made a trip to the store for milk, bread, some fresh fruit, and vegetables. Did the 3.5 Km walk to the No Frills store on Roblin. Arrived around 9:30, there was 4 or 5 people other then myself shopping at that time. Spent about 10 minutes in the store. Nice quick and easy trip. Wish they sold Disaronno Amaretto there.

That's very helpful. Probably attributable to people staying home, so I don't think it's a friggin coincidence (and if it is, that's great luck!). The last thing we need is the flu compounding already stressed health resources.

There cases of the flu in Manitoba. They mite not be report on the front page of the news but there are cases. The schools are reporting very low cases this year due to social distancing, and masks. My wife volunteers at one of the test sites and says most of the people coming in with covid symptoms, only have the flu.

Right, they mean logged cases, but it's still indicative of the reality although not quantitatively. For example, I've had the flu probably tons of times in my life but the government never knew about it to include it in stats.

The test is only for COVID. You either have COVID or you don't. I get test once a week and they have never said anything but, positive or negative.

That?s what I thought. So it?s fair to say that Goldmember?s assertion that positive covid tests are being padded by the flu is false?

Like Pro Mask or Anti Mask (I'm assuming Anti Mask, because a Pro Mask rally would seem counterintuitive.  If you're pro mask, you're likely pro social distancing, which a rally is not).

I don't get the issue with masks.  It's simple.  It's cheap.  It may or may not be effective, but it keeps the politicians at bay.  I mean, seriously, if we got told wearing white socks would help, there would be a group of barefooters/sandal wearers who would protest.  What's worse - wear a mask, potentially reduce the risk, and be able to function semi normally, or go back to lock down until May?  Masks are not uncommon in many parts of the world.

My bet is AB is heading for a lockdown tonight til January.

Toilet paper already sold out in the stores.  Cause people didn't learn the first time.

Selfishly I'm hoping Hollywood has enough TV shows in the can for at least two months, I fear the wife and I are getting near to the end of "good" shows on Netflix/Crave/Amazon, though there are always stragglers that surprise.

We converted our mudroom into a dry pantry during the last shutdown (there's only two of us and two dogs).  I've been keeping a minimum of two months food (good eating, not survival eating) at all times to limit having to go out, mostly because I hate crowds and stupidity (and my wife is in a high risk group).

The US had about 180,000 cases yesterday and around 2000 deaths. Doctors on CNN predicting that these numbers will double in two weeks. The American just can't stay at home or social distance. US airports were very busy yesterday with Thanks Giving Travelers.

They'll more than double in two weeks time.  Take a look at the Canadian thanksgiving trend.  We're up 250% since mid October, and Thanksgiving is far less of a big deal here than in the US.  Couple that with Black Friday sales the next day, I won't be surprised if they are at 600000 - 800000 cases a day by Christmas.  Which will have it's own wave.

As much as I don't want/can't see the Government (effectively) cancelling Christmas this year in Canada, when it happens I won't be surprised.

I can't see them reaching 600K-800K by Christmas but the numbers will be going up.

I certainly hope not, but to summarize a conversation I had with a coworker in Colorado on Tuesday

Him - "Yeah, cases are up like 700% here from when they shut everything down in the spring, looks like my kids will be home schooled until January"

Me - "I guess that means virtual Thanksgiving and no Black Friday shopping"

Him - "No, still getting together with family, sister coming in from DC, going to do what we always do."

And the guy I'm talking to here isn't a longarmed Trumpophile missing 60% of his teeth.

Rat squad out in full force?  Not that I have anything against COVID fines, and quite frankly if you're going to be an idiot you deserve it, but encouraging neighbours to rat each other out seems real cold war German era BS.

I really dislike this perception.

I'm a teacher and one lesson I really try to drill into younger students is the difference between snitching/tattling and informing the teacher when something is wrong.

I don't want to hear that Kimmy is listening to music, or Tommy got out of his chair, or Steve is drawing instead of reading. Those things only affect the person who is messing around and others   need to mind their own business.

But when someone sees someone being bullied, or is interfering with others trying to stay on task, or is acting in a dangerous way - that needs to be brought to my attention. The person telling me has done nothing wrong - it is solely on the person who is acting stupidly.

Same thing here. You want to be a good neighbour? Don't be the one putting us all at risk or perpetuating this lockdown. Don't blame the one making the call when you're the idiot.
