    No! That isn't what I was surprised at. I'm surprised that the numbers were so far off from what they were talking about. Apparently can't even trust radio morning shows anymore! :lol:

    It was pretty apparent things were going to get shut down again . Numbers are nuts and they've been hinting at the passport coming here for a couple weeks.

    I’m sure you accepted Kenney’s apology right away, though. I mean, he’s Conservative, so can do nothing wrong.

    If it was a Liberal premier, I assume you’d be hopping mad and ready for insurrection.

    If Brian Jean made a comeback in his own party (ie wildrose party comes back) I'd vote for him in a heartbeat. I won't vote for NDP cause Notley was terrible. There is almost ZERO liberal presence here so not really an option. We have the maverick party but believe it or not I don't actually want to separate from Canada. There's PPC but they are too far right for me. So... Brian Jean please come back?

    So what makes the Den an exposure notification compared to the other bars/restaurants that are listed as a precaution notification?

    Aaaaand we are fucked .

    Nobody enforces shit at the dome. Most bars only loosely enforce and everyone just breaks the rules as soon as nobody is looking. Given how packed the last few weekends there were, cases in the 20 to 35 demographic will explode.

    I wasn't inside, but I work and park nearby there. Kids will be kids is going to bite us in thr ass here

    Yeah the people less likely to vaccinate are also the most active socially. Not a good combo.

    Cases will go up, but will hospitalizations climb drastically? I know, I know - young and healthy people can still get hospitalized with COVID, but isn't it way less likely than older folks - whom are very highly vaccinated and seem to be keeping to smaller groups anyway?

    I thought we were told to expect cases to go up as things open, but that we could tolerate more cases because of the vaccine. Also, think of all the people who have recovered - they will have immunity as well.

    Our healthcare is so fucked after the McNeil run that even 5 folks needing emergency is a huge problem.

    I’ll put on the tinfoil hat one last time. Do these recovery numbers seem kind of high to anyone else? 88 recoveries over the weekend seems a tad high

    So does that mean that the precaution doesn’t necessarily mean a positive Covid case was there? I find it a bit confusing with the new system lol

    I'm not sure exactly, but here's how NS Health is describing it:

    As Nova Scotia moves into a stage of living with COVID-19 as we go about our daily activities, there will be changes in how Public Health communicates COVID-19 public exposures. We will no longer be issuing exposures based on the risk levels of low, moderate, or high. We will be issuing COVID precaution notifications and COVID exposure notifications, where your self-isolation and testing requirements will be based on your vaccination status.

    COVID precaution notifications will be issued if there has been a potential exposure of minimal risk to the public.

    COVID exposure notifications will be issued when the public has had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

    They define "close contact" as being within 2m/6ft of a positive case for more than 15 minutes. As to The Den, your guess is as good as mine - perhaps it's because there's been so many precaution notifications?

    Yeah that's true - it's shitty that it's gotten to this point. I really hope things improve now with new leadership but that will take time (if any improvement at all - remains to be seen).

    He's sinking money into recruiting and fired the old Budget Bill's Mcneil placed in charge of healthcare. I'm optimistic
