I agree. It’s pain in the proverbial...but we can do without, especially if it means we stay healthy and alive.

You are right but it's summer and it's nice to get out. Winter isn't that far off and too long and we keep hearing about the second wave coming this fall/winter so people are getting out now while they can, they don't care about being stuck indoors when its snowing and minus silly. Are we likely to get a complete travel ban, overseas and provincial? If this idn't a reality we are just assuming that joe public will be careful

I'm not assuming anything about the government or the public at large. They can have their pandemic if they want to but I'm personally declining to get involved. Like religion or Philadelphia soul or golf, I know it's wrong to dabble with Covid so I don't. I wish other people would not but I can't stop them. They'll always be some Christian or Muslim or Whatever twat without a mask listening to Harold Bloody Melvin on a golf course.

I agree. It is just a shift in thinking. Adapt to the conditions. Accept what is.

Indeed. Perhaps the reversals in the US and impending reversals in places like Canada/UK (who were less forthright in disregarding the public health advice) will teach the public that the virus is a genuine threat. The recent stories on loss of immunity, long term complications, and the virus adapting itself is deeply concerning. It's crazy to me that government and public don't adopt an over-cautious approach, because as important as the economy is, it won't survive a pandemic of even greater intensity.

But what conditions are we adapting to? Here in BC our "conditions" are not the same as say Florida. If the Province or even the government says "no travel period" or "no indoor eating/drinking" or "mask up when leaving home" then people will do it but when we are reopening things and allowing some freedoms you cannot expect people not to do what's technically allowed. Sure some will push the boundaries as always but that's human nature.
People are getting all pissy about non mask wearers, US plated vehicles, people not socially distanced enough and many other things but we are never going to get 100% compliance, jesus last time i looked it was illegal to shoot somebody but it happens almost everyday and how many stabbings have we seen on the news in UK of late. Fact is some people will just not follow sensible advice and some will not follow law!

BC growing concern about the community spread happening. Urging people to follow the health advice given.

One thing I did notice in our drive through a few different regions, mask use is not common it seems overall.

I agree. We should all go out stabbing and shooting until it's no longer a problem.

When some precautions become law there are going to be a few that freak out and get on the news screaming at a cashier or security guard, naturally. I think most people here get the point though. I was talking to my sister the other day and the parties in Kelowna that sparked the recent outbreak included 2 agricultural workers from Oliver, and they're cooling their heels at home. At present our recommended social distancing at all times inside and outside, and mask wearing while in places where social distancing may be difficult (stores and businesses) seems to be working. I picked up some surplus computer stuff downtown yesterday and had to carry it a few blocks, and it isn't hard to keep 6' away from everyone, especially with fewer people out and about. I kept my mask on when I left the building and it got pretty hot by the time I reached the van, but I wore it since I expected to be huffing and puffing a bit, and wanted to test it for comfort in that situation.

At this point I think bars should be closed completely, and restaurants, coffee shops etc drive through or take out only. Seems silly to have people sitting and congregating inside restaurants and as many US states now show, reopening can cause issues very quickly.

I just hope we can maintain what we have in BC, but it seems to be spreading through the community again.

And this!

I don't want to spend the next 40 years sequestered at home, but in truth I was spending probably 22 hours a day at home anyway, with only the daily trip to take my daughter to school being most of the two hours out and about, plus shopping for groceries or at Lowes. We miss our once or twice a week meals out, but not enough to risk having to share restaurant space with unmasked covidiots, so we stay at home, and will do for the forseeable future.

The one thing I do miss are the concerts - I love a good concert, and I had several tickets lined up for the summer, including a couple of the best three-band-bills I had ever seen, but those are now cancelled. I had already been to several concerts in the first quarter of this year, and took in a Kix club gig (I had never seen Kix before) even as the lock-down loomed in mid-March. Now I don't forsee going to a concert before the second half of 2021, which is the longest drought I have endured since I was at school.

What do you mean by spreading through the community? AFAIK there were 21 new cases reported throughout the entire province of BC yesterday.
