    The province dropped the ball with Cape Breton. Numerous complaints for eeeks that testing has been virtually non existent. People are trying to get what they can while they can.

    Public Health has changed its approach to manage a significant increase in COVID-19 activity across the province. Efforts and resources are focused on protecting the most vulnerable Nova Scotians and those in high-risk settings including long-term care, hospitals, shelters and transition houses, corrections facilities and other group living settings.

    Most Nova Scotians who are positive for COVID-19 will identify and contact their close contacts. As a result, Public Health will no longer have the necessary information to report most exposure sites and locations. Those that are identified through case management in high-risk settings noted above, will be reported.

    The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is widespread in Nova Scotia and the risk of transmission of the virus is high everywhere. Nova Scotians should continue to protect themselves and others when visiting any public location by practicing the following protection measures:

    • Keep a distance of at least two metres/six feet from others.
    • Wear a well-fitted three-layer mask.
    • Wash your hands regularly.
    • Stay home and get tested if you have symptoms.

    I had Astra Zenica, then Phizer. My booster is scheduled to be Moderna.

    The pharmacies in this province only serve Moderna. When I got my first shot, it was at a pharmacy as well and at that time they only did AZ.

    I honestly don't think there's any issue with mixing - we'll all be getting a booster yearly at this rate anyway. Why are we getting boosters? Because they wear off over time.

    My wife had the same reaction. She was sick in bed most of the day after. I’d walk by the bedroom door and be like “yo, you still alive?” Then a thumbs up would emerge from a mountain of blankets and pillows. Only lasted a day then got better real quick

    Yeah, the 5G signal in the vaccine can mess with power lines when you first get boosted.

    I also don’t think there is any issue mixing but I also don’t think that Pfizer and Moderna have ever come out and said that or tested form compatibility and I think the government’s research is mostly anecdotal. Therefore I’ve chosen to keep them all the same. That and I know of very few people that have felt like crap after getting pfizted. My booster was last week and other than swollen lymph nodes in my neck for about 4 days each time, I’ve felt fine.

    From the news today...


    Right now, in the province there are 62,733 active cases.

    786 people are in hospital and 79 in the ICU.

    Here in Fort McMurray, there are 805 active cases, and 51 in the rural area.

    *Note that the numbers presented may be much higher as testing is limited. *

    They took away PCR testing unless the person is high risk. Asking everyone to do at home tests... But those aren't all getting reported. Been a hell of a couple weeks.
