    Today's press release

    Today, October 7, Nova Scotia is reporting 30 new cases of COVID-19 and 36 recoveries.

    There are 26 cases in Central Zone, two cases in Western Zone and two cases Eastern Zone.

    There is community spread in Central Zone, primarily among people aged 20 to 40 who are unvaccinated and participating in social activities.

    On October 6, two schools were notified of an exposure(s) at their school. It is important to note that an exposure associated with a school does not mean there is spread within the school or that the initial case was first exposed to the virus in the school. As always, all staff, parents and guardians are notified of exposures if a positive case (student, teacher or staff) was at the school while infectious. A list of schools with exposures is available online: https://backtoschool.ednet.ns.ca/school-exposures

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 247 active cases of COVID-19. Of those, 16 people are in hospital, including five in ICU.

    On October 6, Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 4,201 tests.

    As of October 6, 1,526,737 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 736,190 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    Doesn't that set a weird precedent, though? There are lots of conditions, many of which could could be prevented by lifestyle changes, that land people in the hospital every year and puts strain on healthcare. If someone eats like shit, smokes, drinks excessively, does drugs, etc, should they be treated differently in healthcare as well? I know those things don't affect others the way a virus does, but it does put strain on the healthcare system.

    Cigarette smoking should 100% invalidate health coverage imo.

    I’ve told her already I hope nobody hires her. Which sucks because she is good at her job and actually cares about her clients, but her social life puts her as a prime candidate to fuck around and get covid. I would hate to see her cause a spread, but i don’t like to see people who need care now not get it

    Agreed. But this is a pandemic with emergency measures to get things under control.

    Putting things to the test: https://www.seattletimes.com/seattl...-get-vaccinated-denied-transplant/?utm_medium

    Colorado Springs, from what I've read, is an ultra-religious nut-job area of the State, so this is not surprising. This woman is Born-again Christian but large sects of Mormonism in this area that have branched off from the main religion - huge polygamy, radical beliefs area.

    Could we have 2 threads? One with the NS announcements and one with the discussion? I love that C Mike Hunt's been posting the news but I find it disrupts the conversation. But maybe it's just me.

    Was going to say - on the mandated vaccine front, it's been interesting to see the ferry workers here in the Seattle area taking the ferries hostage. They're being mandated to get vaccines and instead of doing that, they're just all calling in sick at the same time - picking peak days or times to do it. Yesterday was a Seahawks game and, bam, ferry cancellations everywhere. It's amazing to see.
