    I'm glad we're allowed to post about politics again because *boy* do I have some stuff to get off my chest.

    Mostly, chest hair. I wear band-aids over my nipples when I run and they're not sticking well because of my chest hair and if they do stick, it hurts getting them off.

    When I had one done, the nurse, who had a Russian type accent looked at me for a sec and goes “I’m going to shave you”

    I was never so confused and turned on at the same time. I was like “well just show me where you’re putting them and I’ll clean up a spot for you”

    “no I do it it’s ok”

    just a splash of water and a disposable razor :lol: the razor burn under the prongs was extreme

    Today, February 28, Nova Scotia is reporting six new hospital admissions and four discharges.

    Nova Scotia is also reporting seven deaths related to COVID-19:

    • a man in his 30s in Central Zone
    • a man in his 60s in Central Zone
    • a woman in her 60s in Northern Zone
    • a man in his 70s in Northern Zone
    • a man in his 80s in Northern Zone
    • two women in their 80s in Central Zone.
    Data on deaths comes from Panorama, public health’s disease information system. It is entered into the system only after the death is identified to be COVID-related, which can take days or weeks to investigate and report. The majority of data on deaths is reflective of virus activity in the past, at the point of infection, and not the situation today, at the point of reporting.

    As of February 27, 2,212,224 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 92.1 per cent of Nova Scotians have received their first dose, and 86.7 per cent have received their second dose.

    As well, 62.3 per cent of Nova Scotians 18 and older have received a booster dose, and 0.6 per cent have booked a booster dose appointment.

    Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) labs completed 1,941 tests February 25; 1,512 tests February 26; and 1,449 tests February 27.

    On February 26, there were 322 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported: 168 cases in Central Zone, 45 cases in Eastern Zone, 53 cases in Northern Zone and 56 cases in Western Zone.

    On February 27, there were 322 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported: 128 cases in Central Zone, 64 cases in Eastern Zone, 64 cases in Northern Zone and 66 cases in Western Zone.

    An additional 243 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 are being reported today, February 28: 133 cases in Central Zone, 24 cases in Eastern Zone, 57 cases in Northern Zone and 29 cases in Western Zone.

    There will be an increase in new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported. This is expected and is a result of people with positive rapid tests being able to get a confirmatory PCR test. New cases reported will now show a greater proportion of overall cases in the province.

    As of today, there are an estimated 1,967 active cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia.

    Rapid tests are still required both ways I believe - it’s easier now (you don’t need PCR) but it’s not “do nothing”.
