    So our luck ran out at lunch time today. Youngest got nailed as a close contact. Tried booking a test (earliest was Dec 24). Kept refreshing and found one at South Park location at 2:25. They were Turning away people with no appointments and after having a shitload of tests since Nov 1 because of work exposures, this was the first time I can say I felt unsettled waiting in line for the test. People hacking and sniffing it was disgusting. Then come home to see the premier admit that Omicron May not be as mild as thought, and we are taking a full on Trump approach to testing moving forward. If you are positive on a rapid do not PCR test and follow requirements. That will surely make our numbers drop since they won’t be recorded. What a shit show. We Had to now cancel all Christmas plans because the daughter needs to isolate until her results come in.

    a) That sucks about your daughter, especially heading into Christmas.

    b) I assume the ask is that people still self report if they’re positive with a rapid test? Main difference is they won’t be doing a follow up PCR test? Hopefully that keeps things half accurate.

    In the heading of “this is what really sucks about COVID” scenarios, my sister-in-law’s mother in Montreal went in to the hospital yesterday. Numbers in Quebec are through the roof, she was not triaged as high priority so basically just sitting in a bed monitored periodically by a nurse - not Covid, in for some abdominal pain.

    Fast forward to last night, she had a heart attack - she’d had a UTI that spread to her kidneys that caused it. And because of COVID, her kids can’t go in to see her.

    Where the fuck is infatuousinfatuous with all his, “COVID isn’t real, you don’t need to worry about it” - *this* is a mild case of why it’s a major fucking problem.

    And… now that we’re dependent on rapid tests with the whole, “treat a positive test as good and don’t follow up with PCR”… apparently false positive tests are rampant. It’s all a fucking crapshoot.

    I’m having trouble following NS’s guidelines
    1) Unless you are symptomatic AND classified as high risk, PCR tests are not available to you. Instead get rapid test.
    2) We are virtually out of stock of rapid tests. Don’t go looking for them we aren’t handing them out.

    i have no idea what’s going on and I’m done following it. I stay cooped up in my office, have met very few people outside of that and all my shopping has been done for weeks. I don’t care if I get it but I don’t want to pass it to those in my life who have compromised immune systems. If it weren’t for that I wouldn’t really care that much.

    An observation on Nova Scotians and the pandemic after spending a week here:

    1. People are more concerned about who to point fingers at than anything else when an outbreak happens. Based on the outrage, I wouldn't be surprised if St. FX gets burned to the ground over Christmas.

    2. Common sense doesn't seem to be part of individual evaluation of the regulations the government puts in place. ie: a 10 person gathering doesn't make sense if each of those 10 people is also visiting with 10 other people. Actually, a 15 person gathering where the 15 people involved have bubbled together completely and are doing things like online pickup for groceries is probably more safe. But, see #1 and the fear that someone will report you makes people act irrationally.

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high number of COVID-19 cases in our province, we have made changes to how Public Health communicates COVID-19 public exposures. We will no longer be issuing notifications when there has been minimal risk to the public (precaution notifications). We will only be issuing notifications when the public has had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (exposures).
