Regardless of status, Amazon's making us all wear facemasks again starting tomorrow.

 

That's great news, nothing wrong with adding another safety measure. Wish you well.

In a bar/restaurant  with about 30 other unmasked folk,  including the staff. We'll see how I fair. Wish me luck.

 

BTW, if you're ever on the Coast, Half Shell Oyster House... It's phenomenal! 👍

Several hospitals in NE Ohio with refrigerated trucks in their parking lots to hold the overflow from the morgue. But I guess that's just more fake news. Maybe you could post some more memes to show us how entertaining this all is to you. 

 

Hook line and sinker.

Good, non-biased article BTW. Lots of info, not much opinion and lots of reference. Very refreshing.

You can spread Covid now as long as you're vaccinated? 

 

"After implementing a coronavirus mandate for health care workers this fall, Rhode Island has now opened an option for COVID-positive health care workers to continue working if their facility is facing a staffing crisis."

sad part is that this was all mishandled from the beginning. Policies created the staffing shortage, so now so many industries are having labor shortages.

 

Rhode Island went from firing unvaccinated health care workers to allowing the COVID-positive to work

I don't have the time or wherewithal to do the research, but I'm wondering if this virus and the vaccines in particular are such a polarized/political issue in other countries.  It is sad to see that the good 'ol USA makes things such a political issue.  

 

COVID's real, and the science backs up the fact that the vaccines help.

I absolutely agree. But they fired anyone who was unvaccinated then bitch that there's a shortage of workers and then tell vaccinated workers that they can work while having Covid. That's F'd up, am I the only one with common sense in this Mother F'er?

I read an article this morning that was talking about a large protest in the Netherlands that got a little violent. Not sure about elsewhere.

Heh...Case in point the article Snooki posted.  The story in the article (especially the article form the original source itself) sounds a lot different than the headline itself. 

- There has not been one case of a HC worker in Rhode Island working while infected with CV.  It's an emergency break glass policy and they are talking about the potential of scenarios like CV infected nurses working on CV infected patients.  

- Workers would be wearing N95 masks, if it were to ever happen.  

- The change in emergency policy is based on change in CDC guidance.  The new variant only appears to transmit during early stages of infection; so they are talking about workers who've been positive for some period of time.  

- Apparently, the RI Health Department sees it fit to alter policy, based on changes over a period time to the virus itself.  This is how things should work.  

Fox News saw an opportunity to make some headline porn to get their target audience excited about something that really isn't even happening.  Apparently they had to move on from the War on Christmas stuff; it is early January now.

But Vaccines don't work, some silly carton that dopie posted says so......I wonder why people with these views bothered to get vaccinated, I mean clearly not being vaccinated is perfectly safe, no higher numbers of people in that group being hospitalized, put on ventilators or dying.

Sharing some more anecdotal,  one of my coworkers just came down with his second case of Covid. He's both vaxed and boosted and still got it.

Oh boy, being vaccinated doesn't me that you can't get covid. It means that you're less likely to get it and if you do, you'll suffer through less symptoms, likely won't need to be hospitalized, likely won't need a ventilator and won't die. 

 

I can't tell you how many people I've run into that say, I or someone I know was vaccinated and still got covid.  

 

I'm curious Rajn, your coworker, are they experiencing any symptoms and if they are, are they serious?  Have they been hospitalized, etc?

Thank you Irish, I really, super-seriously didn't know that. :rolleyes:

That's not really the greatest endorsement.

I know his first infection was pretty nasty,  but I don't know the details. I just found out about his recent infection,  so I don't know any more than he had symptoms and got tested.

is your co-worker a friend? if so, sorry he's sick. If not a friend, well, still sorry he's sick

I knew who he was before work,  but he's more a work acquaintance. We're both from the same area and run in overlapping circles, he's just about 10 years older than I am so we never "knew" each other before work.

Well, you never can tell.  Many buy into the record spin in either direction.  The endorsements for the vaccines are the improvements in the decrease in severe illness and death. However, as viruses mutate, they usually decrease in potency/severity.  

 

I was curious about his first infection when the guy was probably not vaccinated, versus this time around. Either way, hope he recovers quickly.

Why and why would you say he was probably not vaccinated?

Just guessing, feel free to fill in the blanks. Should be pretty simple and straight forward.

And????? Is there some kind of point to this post? Other than to make it sound like the vaccines are not useful.  Only fools believe being vaccinated/boostered means no chance of getting it. 

 

Let us know when you know people who were vaxxed and boosted who got COVID and were hospitalized, in the ICU, on a ventilator or died. Or maybe you have some facts that show that the reports of the majority (in the 90% range) of those hospitalized and dying are unvaxxed.
