Hospitalization have gone up each of the last two weeks. 7 people also dies last week. Also looks like a couple of nursing homes have outbreaks.

My wife has a policy of no vaccination, no surgery. One of my new patients told her that because she had a tetanus shot in the last 2 years, she is exempt from the covid vaccine and is fully vaccinated.

I'm wondering if MonkeyPox was ripping through the general population as a sexually transmitted disease with an easily administered vaccine, how many people that have disavowed the COVID vax would embrace the Monkeypox vax? 

If polio suddenly becomes a thing again, a scary thought, will young anti-vaxxers line up for polio shots?  Us old people are safe.. we were vaxxed back in the day, but I'm not sure if/when it has started to be fashionable to not vaccinate for polio...

I sure hope sanity prevails and people start understanding the safety of vaccines.  When you read the list of side effects of ED and cosmetic (botox) treatments, and you hear the list of side effects rolled off in commercials for other new meds, adn then look at the billions of doses of COVID vaccine administered with negligible side effects (oh my arm got sore...  sorry, I didn't even get that one in 4 shots so far)... yikes...

Unpaid covid fines will hurt your credit rating. My niece was doing a mortgage for a young couple when she did a credit check and found out they have over $2500 in unpaid covid fines.

Covid starting to ramp up again. Hospitals showing an increase in numbers. My wife had no cancellations for the past three weeks. This week three, due to covid. This new vaccine, is a few months to late. Good for Omicron1, but considering we are see Omicron 5 now it's a little to late. US has a vaccine for Omicron 4 and 5.

I think the next few months are going to be a disaster, to be honest.

Starting on the 12th, any MB resident 12 years and older can get a booster of their choice. (per Bartley Kives on Twitter)

We don't get any covid sick time anymore - any days missed have to come from our sick time.

You only have to be symptom free for 24 hours - not that anyone is monitoring it.

Our church did a bible camp on the weekend. 30 kids 13-17, and 6 adults. Yesterday, 18 of the kids tested positive and 3 adults. Some of these kids went to school on Monday and Tuesday, without being tested. The parents of every child on this outing were supply with three test kits. Didn't think to use them until the first positive test was reported.

Hearing horror stories about airlines.  Almost no masks, and people coughing...

In the air, the recirculation systems are quite efficient.  But standing on the tarmac, and taxiing, they are dead air inside.  I've seen people with thier CO2 meters showing just horrible levels at the start and end of flights. 

They should have a light similar to the seat belt light, but for masks (there is a spot in the "No Smoking" sign area.  When the plane is in flight, much less need for masking, but when sitting with the air off, they are a deathtrap. 

They should also have a CO2 sensor with a large readout that people can see througout the plane (or several smaller ones), to scare them into a mask.   

Having student part timers is now becoming an issue, they seem to be getting COVID regularly, and while its not serious, it still means days off work.

Talked to a client yesterday who has 3 small kids, and all of  them has had it 3 times.  She is triple vaxxed, no issues, like a cold.  Kids are single vaxxed, a little harsher.  Partner is antivax, and had very serious symptoms (almost hospitalized).  But 3 times?  Yikes.

Sounds like my niece is home from school with Covid. Sounds like 25% off her home room class has it.

And I bet 50% also has it, is asymptomatic and isn't testing, and is spreading it on...

This is getting insane...

Sure, it is no where near as deadly for the general population as it was originally, the vaccines and treatments have seen to that, but there are still those of us at risk, even vaxxed and masked.

Had a sales rep waltz in past our "please mask" sign, coughing and snuffling, wanting to talk about special offer sheets on his products (that we do carry).  He proceeds to take out his binder, couch into his sleeve, and then start reeling out pages, licking his fingers for each one and trying to hand them to me (wearing a mask and staying 6 feet away). 

As a sales rep, he should have picked up on the signals, used one of the free masks he waltzed by, and offered to email me the info.  instead, he gets zero business and wastes the trip.

Normally, I would have asked him to mask or leave, but I was just so taken aback by his brazen attitude that I stood there in shock.

I am headed to Toronto on Friday morning for the Blue Jays wild card games this weekend. We will definitely be wearing KN95 masks on the flight.
