Was just down at No Frills and there was only one person with no mask on. Senior male. Doesn't look like most are taking there masks off just yet.

Still requiring vax cards, but no mask mandate, just highly recommended.  Yeah, will be interesting... saw lots of people in the stands with masks down for "drinking beer"... so not sure how much different it will be... remember, STH's asked to have VAX mandate retained, so many will be mask conscious...

would guess that perhaps 10% used masks last night at the Jet game.
Did use mine always in the halls of the bldg., washroom and occasionally in my aisle seat.   Felt very odd when I did remove it.

We had our masks on also. Headed to the lake to get in some fishing, so won't be at the next few games. Will see how the large unmasked crowd effects our numbers.

Without any monitoring of testing, all we will have to go by is the hospitalization numbers, which we won't be getting either.

I think its going to be a sad trickle down effect, healthy people at events / stores getting "sick" with no symptoms, and then taking it home to pass on, eventually getting to a vulnerable person a week or two later. 

Contact tracing is going to be impossible, and infections are going to be "six (sick) degrees of COVID Bacon"

Manitoba has gone thought a bit of a roller coaster the last two days. On Wednesday Manitoba's hospitalizations went down by 76 people, however on Thursday it went up 51 people. We now have 395 in Hospital, 17 ICU, and we had 2 more deaths reported today.

They seem to keep forgetting Brandon in the numbers...

So numbers are up after a week of no masks... marginally, sure., but up. 

That is with *most* people still following mask protocols.

Will be interesting to see what the numbers look like after this 4 game Jets homestand where a maskless crowd can include people with active COVID after testing positive.  Again, *most* people would not dream of attending a Jets game with active COVID, but all it takes is a few idiots to cause a superspreader event.  And with "symptoms" of BA.2 being totally different than Delta or even Omicron, there will no doubt be a lot of people there that will be unintentionally spreading COVID. 

Lots of positive tests in my circle of associates the past few weeks, many linked back to schools.  Some from "a night out".  None requiring hospitalization, so they don't end up being tracked, but I didn't personally know anyone that was infected before Omicron came along, and the number of positive tests in the past few months has been alarming.  Luckily all my associates are fully vaxxed, I can't imagine what the hospitalization numbers would be if they weren't.

Question, vulnerable people who test positive are eligible for antivirals, especially monoclonal antibodies, which reduce hospitalizations / ICU.  Is there any resource that reports how many doses of these have been administered?  A large percentage of that number would have gone on to hospital/ICU... so, along with vaccines, therapeutics may be mitigating the hosp/ICU numbers as well...

Covid really driving up Used car value. My wife finally received her electric vehicle today. We had no interest in trading in her vehicle, but what they offered her was crazy high.
