Today the dentist called to confirm a routine appointment. I declined, thinking it far from safe. I wonder now if dentists require that patients have masks and just sort of poke around blindly.

Apparently a colleague was greeting people upon entry to the store and a guy came in with a couple of other people, one of whom coughed. The guy said "she's been doing that for hours and she's from Campbellton" - otherwise known as the Covid-19 capital of an otherwise almost free from active case province.

This was relayed to my SD some time later and she immediately said the colleague should tell the manager.

I can't believe the greeter didn't report it straight away. The guy should have been asked to leave and maybe police called too.

It's very likely a joke. But people have been charged for stuff like this and in other cases stores have closed for cleaning.

What if it's not a joke?

I'm tempted to report it via crimestoppers but if anything happened to have it investigated - store CCTV check, police interview etc - there could be confidentiality implications for my SD.

This is where you need a union so a delegation could go to management.

We are ‘officially’ opening our main doors on Monday, and I am uncomfortable. There is only my colleague and me up there, and tape on the floor near the glass. Some of our clients are in bad situations and couldn’t self isolate if heaven commanded it. This second wave talk really bothers me...it’s a bit like NB and snow...not so much if but when. We’ve been lucky so far

I think the only active case in your area is the worker from that care home in Campbellton and he/she is isolating now. We have three TFWs hereabouts, all isolating.

Do you have clients from out of zone 3?

Have you been watching Mike Pence or something? I think it's too early for a prediction like that. The virus hasn't gone away, all that's changed is that we're going from serious lockdown to attempted avoidance.

I agree. The first wave hasn't even ended yet in many places, and seems when one outbreak is under control another pops up.

BC has 19 new cases, 2 new outbreaks in healthcare facilities one being a small community hospital which is now limited to emergency care only.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...stem-1.5616648

Upside the health region we are moving to has only had 196 cases to date, so risk might be lower, Vancouver Health region is the 2nd most cases in BC.

No. I have been studying the data rather than listening to the media. Whatever you set the wager at, I'll take the bet.

Hardly a thing to bet on ! The "media" in this case is qualified epidemiologists who also are studying the data, and their current conclusion seems to be that a second wave is likely.

Coronavirus has a relatively high transmission rate, especially as carriers are often asymptomatic. The fact that younger people are less impacted doesn't bode well for containment policies. At least BC is managing ok, considering its proximity to Washington, and the density of Vancouver.

Are these the same experts that haven't been able to predict, with any real accuracy, what was going to happen in the past?

This channel is worth a look at if you have some hours to spare:


As I have indicated before, policy appears, to me, to be backwards. Those unlikely to be affected should all get infected as quickly as they can and those likely to be affected should do all they can to isolate from the rest. The media's obsession with number of infections is somewhat baffling to me.
