Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with concern for children and their schooling, it is all about releasing parents from having to look after their children so that they can return to work. At least the Swedes have been honest and open about that from the start!

Truth.

In other truth related news, as the UK passes the 1000 case a day mark again - our total deaths have just been reduced by 5000!!

Logic is somewhat flawed in calculating it once more.starting to think figures are little more than a random number generator!

Reminder Wal-Mart requires masks now, and if these folks interviewed in Kelowna are any indication, I'd hate to be an employee there today, assuming they are enforcing it. Maybe it's why Super Store was so busy today, they don't require masks.

Well today the government announced September 10th, so a whopping 2 day delay.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...t-10-1.5683534

"B.C. Education Minister Rob Fleming has announced a gradual restart of classes in September, with students expected back in the classroom by Sept. 10."

I wonder if there's any way to get on the inside track for that job. Once it's in the paper there could be 15,000+ applicants for 500 jobs.

Good question. Looks like the public health authorities will be the ones hiring, but they didn't give any details on how they plan to hire.

Tides might be turning in BC, if the cases keep going up day to day.

Breakdown by health authority, most cases are in Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal.

1,273 (+41) cases in the Vancouver Coastal Health region

2,203 (+36) cases in the Fraser Health region

150 (+2) cases in the Island Health region

394 (+1) cases in the Interior Health region

104 (+4) cases in the Northern Health region

72 (+1) cases of people who reside outside of Canada.

Don't let the media scare you with case numbers. Remember that for 99% of those new cases, the infected people have very mild symtoms and recover OK at home.
Keep your eye on the admitted to ICU and death numbers.

Remembering, of course, and all things being equal, that the higher the number of new cases, the potentially higher numbers of ICU admissions and deaths.

It's mostly the unknown, would I be one of the 99% or one of the ones who die. My wife has pre-existing conditions that put her in the high risk category, and I have history of pneumonia and bronchitis, so I am not sure which way we would go to be honest.
