Maybe I will not instacart for a few weeks, seems Kelowna is the current hot spot for new cases.

The Federal Gov. have decided not to allow US teams to enter Canada to play the Blue Jays in Toronto. Previously it was hoped that they would be allowed to play the BJ’s at the Roger’s Centre after 14 days quarantine.

I am very pleased to say Toronto is still being very cautious with relaxation of the lockdown rules. The last thing we need is for the numbers to start rising again.

Not terribly surprised, people are complacent, and I am kind of surprised how few in Kelowna seem to wear masks, although I do find people in stores in Kelowna do distance better, and following the one way markings on the floor better, so there is that at least where in Vancouver in stores its a total cluster. And the stores here have way less people in them, its like paradise inside Wal-Mart compared to the Vancouver store.

The trend seems to be you can have an open economy and just deal with high case loads, or you shut as much as you can down and have lower counts, but seems hard to have both.

I suspect some restrictions will be coming our way again by end of summer.

"60 cases that have now been linked to multiple exposure events in Kelowna at downtown and waterfront bars and private gatherings in the time around the Canada Day long weekend. Most new cases confirmed this weekend were people in their 20s and 30s, according to Henry."

"We are starting to see people who are testing positive in the last few days having a large number of contacts again," she said.

"We are no longer having safe interactions."

in the spring, most new COVID-19 patients only had close contact with three or four people, but public health officials are now having to trace 20 or 30 contacts for every person with a confirmed case of the disease.

They did provide some updated death stats.

"New statistics presented Monday show that 20 per cent of COVID-19 patients in long-term care and 22 per cent in acute care units of hospitals have died of their illness. The death rate drops dramatically to 0.5 per cent in the remaining COVID-19 patients."

You sound surprised, yet you were warned of this just a few days ago but were resistant to hearing the message. :(
