COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

514 posts in this topic

Those flow signs have been removed here for weeks now, but that's because we have a mandatory mask law in place. Recently the grocery store I frequent have added even more plexiglass screens at checkout stations.

I looked back through the comments and someone said it was Alberta.

Of course it was Alberta, said the person who used to live in SK.

Well I have got a cough now, and so does my 1.5 year old boy.... I work as a high school teacher and about 3/4 of my tutorclass has a cough or a sneeze now and then so they are at home. Got myself tested this morning and hoping for the best now....

Unbelievable what a consequences for having a cold these days (I hope it is just that of course).  Just one year ago I would have go to work and my son to pre school. Now we’re at home in quarantaine.... weird times.

Unfortunately, I’m in the same boat. Had a slightly high temperature on Saturday night (99.5) and was starting to feel fatigued so I had a test Monday. The temperature now seems in normal ranges but have no strength. No other symptoms fortunately. Hopefully, just a bad cold or the flu.

We're going to see rollbacks in parts of Ontario (almost certainly Toronto and Peel Region) so that the max indoor gatherings will be 10 (instead of 50).  I'm not entirely sure if this applies to stores, movie theatres and gyms (prob. not as there isn't "gathering" per se), but if so, then these will all shut back down.  It does mean that the concert I was going to go to (with 50 socially distanced in the audience) is going to be cancelled or postponed again.  I'm not saying this is an over-reaction, but I am disappointed to say the least.

Actually, probably the movie theatres in Toronto will be shut back down, but I may not have the details until later tonight.  I know they are talking very seriously about cutting back hours that bars can serve alcohol, and I do think that is a good idea as there have been quite a few outbreaks linked to bars.

Washington DC is still on Phase 2, with no immediate plans to move into Phase 3 (far as I know).

I think(?) we have actually met all the criteria to move into Phase 3 over a month ago (the biggest thing being a positivity rate of only 3%, for several weeks now, iirc) - but there seems to be an abundance of caution regarding opening up too quickly - which seems entirely prudent, I might add.

A recent and fairy deep survey of businesses in DC and in the immediate DC metro area seems to indicate most don’t expect to have things meaningfully opened back up again until next Summer (2021).

I am trying to find out if the Smithsonian archives are opening up on the 18th as I was told or if its been pushed back again.  If pushed back I can't expect any Leonard Gaskin material (cassettes of shows featuring Percy France) before sometime in 2021, and if it got done in early January it would be 14 long months of waiting.

As Kevin Kline's character says in "Wanda" ... DISAPPOINTED.

Just got my test results back and they were negative fortunately (massive understatement). Of course, I still feel like crap: annoying cough, higher temperatures than normal and general exhaustion.
