    Oh boy, private companies who you don't even think might be impacted by the new US Order for vaccine compliance are starting to get news out to employees about the mandatory vaccines. The news cycle over the next couple of weeks is going to get really interesting. There are a lot of companies who end up listed as "contractors" for the Feds who you'd never suspect.

    A conversation with a co-worker today:

    Coworker

    But at the same time, why cannot one get proven medicine that is effective in getting people better
    12:21
    like hospital drs can’t even prescribe it because it’s not CDC approved yet, if you get it somehow from a dr (when not in the hospital) you survive covd

    HairyAss 12:21 PM
    which medicine is that?

    Coworker 12:21 PM
    Hydrochloriquine (sp?); ivermectin
    12:22
    These are not over the counter (edited)
    12:22
    but I also believe in other supplements that help you fight it
    12:22
    which I took when I had it last year
    12:22
    but no one makes money off the medicine
    12:23
    My husband and I got Covid last year and I took supplements that were not ‘normal’ and we survived. I didn’t miss a day of work either

    If that's real, then that person has been manipulated so much by social media that it's incredible.

    But at this point I'm not even surprised.

    It’s real. The longer conversation is all mind boggling. She sent me an article I should post that makes statements that 60% of the people in hospitals with Covid are vaccinated and when I opened it, the articles you could link to were about how the government is putting Covid vaccines inside lettuce to force people to get it.

    I stopped engaging with her soon after that. I would have liked to tell her she’s bonkers but this is someone I have to work closely with at times and need to keep it civil.

    Engaging these types is often worse than just letting them flail in their own stupidity.

    Wednesdays seem to be the new Mondays. When they used to report cases on the weekends, Monday was usually much lower (less testing on Sunday). The past 3 weeks or so we get our large three day numbers Monday, Tuesday has been single digit or close to single digit and Wednesday has been a jump. It’s an interesting pattern
