So the CDC wants states to be ready to hand out vaccines on November 1st??

Sorry, I'm not taking a vaccine rolled out that quick. I don't care if Trump's name is on it!

(I also hope employers, especially in healthcare, don't force their employees to take the shot or quit, in order to get their businesses fully open and make money. As it is, some hospitals mandate the flu vaccine as a condition of employment, or make those who refuse spend the whole flu season wearing a mask.)

I wonder if anyone will be required to take it as part of their job requirements.

@jana I'm sure all healthcare workers in the hospital will be required to take it. In many places, nurses are already forced to take a flu shot, or wear a mask til flu season is over.

These are my feelings, they are not right or wrong, they are just my feelings:

 

I am sick of the coronavirus.

I am sick of covering my face up.

I do not trust the authorities.

Science makes a very poor God.

Science has a multitude of failures

I should be the authority over what goes into my body. Not someone else.

I hate the trauma that the media has inflicted upon the public without end.

I hate that children are being treated like hazardous material.

I hate how they have imprisoned the elderly with no contact in the end of their lives.

I hate how they do not want us to celebrate holidays.

I hate how easy it is to convince everyone they are going to die.

If you disagree  with all of this or some of this, l mean no disrespect to you personally. I would honor your feelings whatever they were.

Looks like some hospitals are hitting critical mass again, in the U.S. and abroad. Utah hospitals are facing the possibility, very soon, of rationing care. In Belgium, things are getting so bad that asymptomatic COVID+ doctors and nurses are being called in to help with the load. 

Look....I know we are all sick and tired of this virus. Lord knows I am! But things are getting bad again, and I just thought I'd give a little heads up. Things are okay in my neck of the woods, but I still have the pantry and medicine cabinet pretty well stocked, just have to inventory my stash and get a few more things so my housemate and I will be all set. Hopefully there won't be another round of collective panic-buying or quarantine bulk-baking. The shelves are finally filling up with bleach and Lysol--they're just now catching up. 

I'm not watching the news a lot, but I am getting concerned about the surges going on, and the possibility of restrictions returning. My essential employee letters are in my purse, but I doubt I'll need them. My housemate's family and I have a quarantine plan should one of us catch the virus. Trying to think ahead--that's one thing the Capricorn stellium is good for. If I can, I'm going to spend more time outdoors in the next few months, which means learning to dress in layers and keep in motion. Live like the Alaskans do, lol.

I watched today’s KY Gov’s press conference. Apparently KY took in a Covid patient from 2 states away.  The patient’s home state and all surrounding states could not take the patient. KY did. The states were not named.  I can not find it in the news outlets. 

Today, new recommendations were made for KY counties that were considered red zones. Do take out food and curb side pickup for shopping. 

My county is not in the red zone. It was in the yellow zone long enough to start in-person school.  My medically fragile granddaughter is signed up for distance instruction. She goes in for her therapy sessions. The elementary schools will be open 5 days per week.  The middle and high schools will have a mixed schedule, 2 days in school, 3 days on-line.  The student bodies will go be split into 2 groups. Group A goes Monday and Tuesday.  Group B goes Thursday and Friday.  The school is deep cleaned on Wednesday and on weekends. 

My widowed sister found out her father-in-law contracted Covid in the nursing home. 

My brother and his wife are in quarantine. His barber has Covid, became sick the day after my brother’s hair cut. Their first test, after 7 days, is negative. Waiting and hoping nothing develops.
