If your living in BC, the BC CDC is looking for the public to complete a survey on COVID, at the end you also have the choice to participate in an anti-body study they are conducting.

Financial help for Seniors... https://www.canada.ca/en/department-...onse-plan.html
  • Providing a one-time tax-free payment
  • We are providing a one-time tax-free payment of $300 for seniors eligible for the Old Age Security (OAS) pension, with an additional $200 for seniors eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).

    This measure would give a total of $500 to individuals who are eligible to receive both the OAS and the GIS, and will help them cover increased costs caused by COVID-19.

Anyone who has company medical benefits just be aware if your company is paying your portion while on CERB you will be liable to pay them back when u earn again.

I became aware today as I did a few hours and got paid nothing as I was deducted the Excess to cover the “loan” for my medical

I'd check that as, unless you have agreed this with your employer, they are not permitted to make any such deductions from your paycheque. The only deductions an employer can make are those that they are required to make by law (tax, EI, CPP, etc.) or those you have specifically authorised them to deduct.

ouch you are correct, but what is one to do ! I like my job and can’t [email protected] it up over a $200 mistake Subsections 254.1(1) and (2) state that:
  1. No employer shall make deductions from wages or other amounts due to an employee, except as permitted by or under this section.

In signing up for medical benefits, I would be willing to bet that you authorized related deductions to be made from your pay cheque.

Good point.

So expect a big chunk of wages missing after first pay check

Travel not advised this week. Wonder if people will listen or will the highways be packed, but rain is supposed to happen Sat/Sun and with campgrounds closed and such, somewhat limited to what one can do.

BC as of today.
  • 15 more people have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • 3 more people have died in the past 24 hours.
  • There have been a total of 2,392 cases and 135 people have died.
  • 1,885 people have recovered.
  • 58 people are in hospital, 12 of them in the ICU.
  • No new community outbreaks.
  • No new outbreaks in long-term care homes.
  • 15 outbreaks continue in long-term care homes, 4 in acute care.
  • Superior Poultry Plant in Coquitlam reopens.

BC testing capacity is 7,000/day anyone showing symptoms can get tested.

BC does not have herd immunity to prevent spread, nor do they know how long immunity lasts.

No Kawasaki Syndrome cases in BC as of today.

serology tests, 2 have been approved in Canada, BC still looking into which they will use.

PSA: Lysol wipes are not suitable to be used for cleaning your hands, body, nose etc, please don't do this.

I think the BC economy is up the creek, international tourism just accounts for too much revenue to not have a major negative effect and so many work in industries related to tourism who wont likely have jobs to go back to in the near future. I really hope the governments have some sort of viable plan, high rents + high unemployment = a disaster in the making.

"International tourism accounts for between $6.5-billion and $7-billion in annual revenues for the province, said Mr. Finlayson. It’s eclipsed only by forest products and the energy/mining sector in terms of money generators in B.C."

"From the City of Vancouver Covid-19 Impacts Report - ~90,000 jobs (~22% of workforce) were lost since start of the pandemic - Hardest hit sectors include healthcare, accommodation, food/tourism, and retail"

🤣🤣thanks for the advice but there hasn’t been a Lysol wipe to be had for love nor money since this whole thing started. (I did buy some organic mint wipes in whole foods on the first day of lockdown but they were so expensive I still have some left, and I don’t think they would actually kill a virus, or me)

They have been popping up at Dollaramma along with the Clorox version which is the same active ingredients, at least around these parts. Just have an older family member who turns out is using the wipes to clean hands and nose which we informed this person its not a good idea.
