    Nolan is sick (runny nose and cough), wife is sick (runny nose, cough, fatigue, sore throat), and I have a runny nose... debating if we should get COVID tests.

    Nobody has a fever....

    NB has made it so unappealing to get tested that I’m sure there are lots of people holding off just because they can’t afford to have the whole family isolate.

    The problem is I have little faith in the tracking.

    When we first started getting exposure notices, my first thought was "they seem to be focusing on the class at school, and ignoring the fact that these kids take busses with kids not in their class, and go to daycare with kids not in their class"

    It snowballed fast. After the 2nd notification we decided to pull the kids early for Xmas and maybe send them to their grandparents after testing and then there were several more days of notifications making us happy we pulled them early. We still have a week to go and 2 more tests before we can safely send them to the grandparents and both our workplaces are busy as hell so it's wreaking havok.

    If there is cough, should get a test immediately.

    Runny nose +sore throat, get a test immediately.

    You don't get a fever with many covid cases

    I hear you on the tracking, I’m starting to believe it’s half assed at this point. Like today Strang says there is kid to kid spread in East Hants and Truro yet Northern zone had 4 reported cases today. How many kid to kid transmissions have happened in HRCE schools in the last week or two alone with no mention of that. Also look at this cluster at St FX they talked about today, yet eastern zone had 0 cases reported again today. How does that work?

    It was in fact, got the call last evening...had COVID tests this morning. Now 48 hours for results.

    So all in total of concerns about COVID, takes about 5-6 days to know if you do...

    Shit fuck system

    NOTE: Due to technical issues, immunization data is not included in today’s release or on the COVID-19 data dashboard. Immunization data will be updated Friday, December 10.

    Today, December 9, Nova Scotia is reporting 52 new cases of COVID-19 and 19 recoveries.

    There are 29 cases in Central Zone, 18 cases in Eastern Zone, three cases in Northern Zone and two cases in Western Zone. There is a cluster of cases in a localized community in Northern Zone and there is also evidence of limited community spread in Halifax and parts of northern Nova Scotia.

    There are 38 new cases being reported today, and 59 in total so far, related to the outbreak at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish. So far, those infected are experiencing very mild symptoms because the cases are mostly young people who are fully vaccinated. More new cases are expected in the coming days. The university reports that about 98 per cent of the student body is vaccinated.

    On December 8, Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 4,454 tests.

    I don’t get a great feeling the way they are announcing these numbers. 18 in eastern but 38 at X. It’s not making sense. Also I love how with this cluster they are focusing all blame on the private gatherings, because you know that Covid stopped at the door before it entered the Keating centre keeping the few thousand people safe. Not to mention the number of bars and restaurants on the exposure list, but they are allowed to be open at full capacity and following PH guidelines. They are quick to come out and say no spread in residences or classrooms yet there are a number of residences, campus buildings, and the god damned meal hall on the exposure list, but blame it on private gatherings where the limit is what 25 people in a house? It’s no different than the faith based focus for the past couple of outbreaks. According to the Gov it was only these things that lead to spread. I’m starting to really think PH is blowing a lot of it off even compared to the actions that NB are taking in hospitals, schools, universities etc with their current situation

    I agree.. I think (!!) they'll show up in tomorrow's official numbers. They could do a better job explaining it though.

    Yeah but again the number manipulation isn’t helping with believing what is being relayed to us at this point. There seems to be a few profs from X starting to speak out on Twitter about their unhappiness with the official information being released currently.

    Only 1,807 cases in Kbec today. A high score means that we're winning, right?
