I got my negative test result back in less than 48 hrs, but I think I'll stay home in my pajamas and eat and drink for an extra day just to be on the safe side.

My daughter and granddaughter had a swab test about 3 weeks ago. She got the results that evening, took 11 hrs.

Glad to hear it was negative! It sounds like you need time to recover from that nasty swabbing.. an extra day might do it
You are fortunate that the turnaround was so fast -
It may take up to 7 days to receive test results for COVID-19 Hamilton
- I expect it depends on where and by who you get the test done

God damn this is getting way worse than last March.

One in 50 people in private households in England had Covid last week - and one in 30 in London.

Some scientists seem concerned about that strain and the vaccine's effectiveness against it. Studies are currently being conducted, the vaccine makers say if tweaks need to be made to their vaccines it will take about 6 weeks.

Very high isn't it. The March figures are less reliable as there were fewer tests back then. Although the hospital admissions seem to support higher incidence. Just last week I had a friend messaging me about how it all seems a bit exaggerated. Over 60,000 new cases today.

The article is loosely based on COVID, just thought this particular comments form the judge on the provinces health orders is interesting, people always bickering over the orders as different people tend to interpret them differently, so one group does this and another screams its against health orders. Travel within BC for example, they suggest no non-essential travel but there is no ban, but some interpret the suggestion of no non-essential travel as being a ban on travel when that is not the case.

In this case seems the ex-wife of a man felt he and his partner were violating the COVID health rules due to his partner being married and also spending time with her spouse, apparently in an open marriage.

Judge had this to say about the health orders:

"The messaging accompanying these orders, and indeed the language of the orders themselves, is fraught with inconsistency and ambiguity," Kent wrote.

"It is not surprising that reasonable people can disagree about their interpretation and application in any given circumstance."

Only 428 new cases in BC today, 8 deaths, 367 in hospital of which 77 are in ICU

As of Jan. 4, B.C. had received 54,625 doses of vaccine.

A mink farmer
euthanized all 1,000 mink on the farm after COVID was detected in some animals.

Haven't seen a surge yet, and being 10 days after Christmas this might be a good sign, vast majority will become ill within the first 10 days, and we seem to still be on the downward trend.
