We've mostly moved away from reporting deaths and are now focused on reporting the number of cases.  That's a positive sign in terms of where we are.

Seems like the UK is in the :huh: phase, as cases and deaths are higher than they have been since March, but Covid`s now about fifth item on the news. Tough winter ahead as public ambivalence is a dangerous mood.

I wish my wife hadn`t gone to Alton Towers (theme park in England) for a few days with an anti-vax denier, her best friend from childhood. At least that friend has had Covid and my wife is fully vaccinated.

I would be curious as to how crowds are managed at the park.

We are now down to learning to live with COVID, and folks are either a) vaccinated, b) have acquired natural immunity by having survived contracting COVID, or c) are unvaxxed and choosing to play the odds.  I only worry about anyone in group C who is in a high-risk group.  Everyone else is statistically pretty safe.

Oh, that`s an easy one - they don`t bother at all with crowd control. England has waived all social restrictions, which I can`t question for mass outdoor events, but interestingly in Scotland it`s still masks and social distancing, on public transport and shops and so on.
If the UK was the US, you`d say there`s a deep red man in Downing Street and a deep blue woman in Holyrood House. As usual both sides have legitimate arguments but it really shouldn`t be a politicised issue at all.

Get vaccinated, get boosted, wash your hands, and wear a mask, as and when appropriate.

Be civil, calm, and carry on.

:)

well... almost two years after I first heard about this scary disease thing sweeping China and creeping into the rest of the world... I got it.

I'm fine, actually. Vaccinated fully back in May. It's pretty much been a strong cold to me. But I'm stuck at home for the week, right when I had a big in person day visit at my top firm planned. Now postponed till January. Oh well. I guess I have no excuse not to watch all six hours of the Get Back documentary now.

I don't really know. My dad is totally fine, and he was right next to me at the Genesis concert. I also went to a MisterWives concert the preceding weekend, and the friend I went with is also totally fine. My coworker and boss are also totally fine. It's like it jumped over anyone else around me just to hit me. Weird.

My sister finally got vaccinated.  It took some serious work by our mother to convince her.  

“Mothers should never bury their children. Children should bury their mothers,” Ma told her.   It worked.  :)

Did you have to travel for these shows?

Yeah.

There's a good chance you caught it from that. Obviously, we can get it anywhere but travel seems to be one of the biggest ways it can happen. Too much is out of our control once we leave our comfort zones.

I should specify, I didn't fly. I drove. I guess it's possible I caught it at a gas station, but then you would think my boss and coworker (whom I spent time with after both concerts) or my dad (whom I spent time with after both concerts) would get it too, and they haven't.

My brother tested positive. They think it's the omicron since it settled in only a couple days after he got infected. He went to visit his godson on Thursday then everyone in that house began to not feel well the following day. Over the weekend he got fever, chills and a cough. The fever and chills are gone now but he still has the cough. So, he is getting better at least.

We co-own our house. I live downstairs and he lives upstairs, so we do have to avoid each other. I saw him briefly after he got home from his godson's on Thursday but we didn't get close enough to each other to spread anything it looks like since I have been fine so far. I can hear when he's walking around upstairs, so it's good that he can get up and move.

I'm glad he seems to be doing ok with it!
