Anyway it looks like quarantine discussions are not for this thread however I'm more than happy to pick this one up in the other thread with you if you want to continue it.

Anyone who still thinks that very low daily infection numbers in the Canadian provinces is any reason for comfort or that people can relax .....should take a look at Japan, which seems to be postitioning itself as the poster child for a second wave.

It's mostly concentrated in Tokyo I believe. The city governor Yuriko Koike wanted to declare a local state of emergency last week but she's a controversial political figure in Japan and a former NHK News Anchor and the central government often don't take her as seriously as they perhaps should.

146 new cases of COVID-19 in B.C. since Friday

8 in hospital, 4 in ICU (Friday there was 2 in ICU and 5 in hospital)

No deaths over the weekend

Increase in cases not unexpected.

"The source of these cases are varied, she noted, but share commonalities. Many exposures took place indoors and via the presence of crowds where there was close talking, sharing food, and contact."

My prediction is a decent uptick in cases, but apparently science says its safe according to the health officials.

Who are we to question the advice of "the health officials"?

I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of parents just don't send their kids to school, and force the government to supply internet classes, and the resulting low student population will make it easy to move the desks apart and provide some distancing for those in the classroom. Sask Party will have to modify this:

That's a lot of territory, lots of agricultural workers. Our outbreaks here are mostly isolated, but I have no idea how it might trend. We're just getting back into a normal-ish work routine and banking on the re-opening cycle as planned, but there are a lot of extra hoops modifications required. You don't shout whoa in a mud-hole.

Precisely my point from a while back about masks in stores. It's the pubs, clubs, restaurants and private functions that are and will always be the biggest problem. This is where they have to put their efforts to help sort this out BUT economy will always be the stumbling block. I am still not at all bothered about going out and living life relatively normally except where its necessary to keep apart and or wear a mask.

Looks like between my step siblings in California and my sister in Arizona none of their kids are going back to school, as their districts have all moved to home based online learning in some fashion.

Downside is some have kids too young to stay home alone, so my sister wont be able to work so their income will be significantly reduced.

There is still an outbreak as far as I know in Abbotsford at that berry packing plant, so I imagine the larger uptick in Fraser Health might be in part due to that packing plant.

I'd venture my risk now in Kelowna is lower, the stores tend to be larger vs Vancouver and less people inside them, so I figure more space + less people = less risk.

I also find people in Kelowna while they wear less masks, they do maintain distance better and respect your space, where in Vancouver more people wore masks but did no social distance at all.

Stewart, BC mayor and residents want residents of Hyder, Alaska to be able to cross into Canada without restrictions, an international bubble of sorts.

Hyder has a population of 80 while Stewart has 400. Hyder residents rely on Stewart for their basic needs.

Hyder, Alaska is not connected to anywhere else in Alaska by road.

US doesn't even maintain a border crossing there, although Canada does.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...bble-1.5674423

Resident's of Point Roberts, WA have also asked for some leeway in being able to cross since they too cannot access any part of the US without going through Canada, and rely on entering BC for many basic needs.
