    I go the local grocery store and it’s about 95% masks. Go to a Kraken game and it’s maybe 5% masks. I don’t know what it says about soccer vs hockey but when I go to a Sounders game, it’s more 50/50 inside the concession areas of the stadium (where it’s “inside”) though most feel comfortable without masks in the arena itself which is outside.

    Yeah. Would be a shame. We have 900/day cases in a population of 4.5 million.

    You guys have what? 1000/day cases with less than 1 million. We have a 87% vaccination percentage of second dose with folks 12+ . Also ahead of you there. I'd say you've taken the title bud. So maybe stop shitting on another part of Canada so much and check what's happening in your own back yard.

    In Fort Mac it's maybe 5% with masks wherever I go remainder without. Went to Edmonton for my mums mastectomy surgery. While she was in having the operation we went for lunch, on white Ave which is close to universities... I'd say it was 60% masked. Even outside. Definitely interesting how the dynamic changes.

    I'd say we should just act better than that and refer to each other as Alberta/Nova Scotia or Canadians. You wanna stoop to America's level go right ahead bud! Keep on doing you.

    I think it's brave you're sharing your story. It may inspire other dicks to learn and grow as well.

    Grifter is much nicer when boing isn’t around as much to bring out his right wing insecurities!

    Sure thing. When boing, who is far right, posts, you tend to agree with him. My point is only that when you stick to your Centre right self, you're much more agreeable and easier to talk to than when boing comes along and sparks your further right insecurities. Or at least that's what comes through.

    Everyone's breathing moistly at the gym, it's the perfect place for no masks! :)

    Ab has 1% less than ns with at least 2 doses, ab is almost double the infection rate of ns as well

    so no, AB is still worse and you once again are posting misinformation

    Weird. Considering i got it from provincial and federal websites. Guess I should trust Facebook or the news?

    Christ no, you shouldn't accept any information from the government at face value. Get the real information on Freedom Wing Nut Media.

    I apologize because NS is not reporting the data often enough so it’s hard to really say one way or another who is worse
    But yes it’s a fucking mess.

    this is one of the first times I’m unhappy with a Houston decision. I’m fine with lifting all restrictions, let people assess their own risk.
    But be transparent with the information so they can make informed decisions.

    No, actually you're still wrong. The Alberta data you posted is the percentage of people vaccinated among those who are eligible. The NS data is the percentage of people vaccinated among the entire population. Toggle that "eligible" button and NS is over 88% vaccinated for people aged 5+. Still very good in both provinces, but the data you posted isn't a fair comparison.

    I don't think it's hate - I believe the issue is that it is difficult to compare apples to apples between provinces as eveyone has their own way of reporting (or not reporting) data.

    Little update. Wife and kids were testing negative (including PCRs on Thursday). All three tested positive on rapids tonight. So I guess bright side, we will all have it over with for a while. NSHA called me today about my positive PCR on Wednesday. Asked some health and history questions, told me they would send me out a pulse ox meter. Had it couriered to my house this afternoon. Also told me that there is a second team that looks at the info gathered from this team that makes decisions on the anti viral meds. Even though we don’t see that side, and there is a delay (understandable with the number of cases right now being the highest ever) they seem to have quite a system going

    Any Idea how long it was after testing before she received them? I am Asthmatic and immunodeficient with Hashimoto's disease but haven't heard anything yet

    My turn for covid, fuck. I went so long avoiding it, now can’t even pin point where I might have picked it up. I’ve still been living life cautiously.

    No symptoms other than a slightly scratchy throat, which I assumed was just from a renovation I was working on and I got into some insulation. But the wife came down with a sore throat as well so we both took rapid tests. I’m positive, she’s negative. Had PCR tests this morning, awaiting results.

    Articles out there saying Ontario is probably seeing 100,000+/cases per day based on comparing viral load in wastewater to previous levels during outbreaks :eek3:

    Its in our house now. We are all a bit under the weather but after 4 days of testing negative my wife had a positive rapid and confirmed with a PCR. So far she is the only one. At least our isolation will be short since in PEI its the shorter of 7 days from your first symptoms or positive test.

    Apparently it can take 2-4 days after symptoms start for tests to show positive. This is what happened with us.
