Now would be a good time for a picnic here...before the mozzies arrive.

One of the things they're allowing here is two family meet-ups. It appears that it can only be family/home A meets family/home B and if there's anyone in family/home C they're left out unless they can meet up with D.

Back in the UK I have three brothers. If they adopted the same idea there one would be desperately trying to find some other family so he can visit them instead of our mum.

BC had 95 new cases on Saturday, 40 linked to a federal prison where 106 inmates and 12 staff are ill and 16 cases linked to yet another chicken processing plant. (meat processing plants seem to be an issue guess its the close proximity employees work with one another).

Hospitalizations are down and currently at 96, with 41 people in critical care. Hospitalizations peaked at 149 or so a couple weeks ago.

Tourism will be bleak this year, some hotels have simply chosen to close rather than stay open at this point.

Thanks JS. I expect positive case numbers in BC to rise now because BC has significantly relaxed its testing criteria. But as long as hospitalizations continue to decrease and deaths as well I'd say we are on the right path.

In NB we can actually elect to have a 2 Bubble Family, but you both have to be happy with that, and once you have elected you can't change your mind. We heard about this on Friday evening and had our neighbors round on Saturday...they are in their late 80's and have no family in the Province. It was super !

The two bubble thing while logical, is surely fraught with opportunities for major falling out between family and friends? "Oh, you don't want to be in my bubble then?. Well fine, you just go and bubble with <INSERT NAME HERE>". Or "I feel duty bound to bubble with family member X but I really want to bubble with my friend Y". Or "Kid A wants to bubble with family C but kid B's friend is family D, who gets ther way etc etc."

Mrs AX and I were discussing yesterday what we'd do if a similar thing was allowed here in Nfld. No easy answers!

Like I mentioned with my three brothers above. Who gets the short straw?

New Zealand has done well.

With new cases in single figures for several days - one on Sunday - Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the virus was "currently" eliminated.

Very difficult if you have family. Easy for us as it is just us. I work with someone who has two lots of family, and teenage children and it apparently caused ructions this weekend

Being small + being an island probably helped.

Now as long as they don't open up international travel too soon, they should do well hopefully.

People in the lower mainland seem to be getting less patient, more people out and about, more traffic, some businesses that had closed have reopened. (the ones not ordered to close but chose to close) and of course the lock protests that are happening, but so far said protests are fairly small.

Just shows that if you have only limited cases in the first place, a strict lock down and closed borders works.....the virus has no where to go, so it just dies off, and of course if people tow the line and don't start protesting about rights and freedoms and all the rest of that rubbish.

Nine straight days with no new cases (NB) and only one in the three days before that.

Of 118 cases, 112 recovered, just 3 left in Hospital, no ICU cases.

66 travel related, 42 close contacts...so that's really 108 travel related and 10 community transmission.

Somewhere around 11,000 tests.

They're not going to quarantine the pickers from Quebec, at least not yet.

Talking of fruit pickers, did you read this article asking for furloughed UK workers to take fruit picking jobs

https://news.sky.com/story/coronavir...rvest-11979143

Yeah right, that will never happen. Leave the crappy jobs to the Romanians they will say.

Are those the Romanians that are here to steal your jobs or the Romanians that are too lazy to work? If the squeeze is on they should just declare it an essential service and pay about 20% more than normal because [in the Okanagan anyway] it's low paying work for what you do. Fruit will cost a bit more. I suspect it will be a trend.
