    I was talking to a co-worker earlier today - his family has kind of been ripped apart by the political divide. He's 1 of 8 siblings and one of his brothers, especially, has gone full-MAGA, including the denial that COVID is anything real... even after 5 of his family members have died. How is it spreading? At the funerals they keep having where no one wears masks and no social distancing. Oh, and no plans for the vaccine as that is a government conspiracy. Jesus.

    The contact tracing being done in Nova Scotia is amazing. The most I’ve seen around here is when the bakery next door closed down and someone posted on Facebook asking why it closed and someone confirmed it was from employees testing positive for COVId.

    They could with technology but not enough people are using/trust the contact tracing apps for phones. I’ve yet to receive one notification of possible exposure and, around here, really doubt that’s true.

    From the sounds of things we are having a lot of cases from workers going out west, coming home and carrying on life as normal but being covid+ while doing so. They made testing mandatory for these workers now.

    It’s ok. My grandparents were into pee play in their sex lives so I get a pass.

    The term “socialism” itself, especially when it comes to US politics (and to a lesser extent, Canadian politics) is such a pile of bullshit that I won’t give you the benefit of a serious reply to your comment.

    They risked their lives for their country and you won't even wear a mask for a few months in public for it. Sad.

    The vast majority of deaths are people laying in nursing homes laying in bed all day. We’re sacrificing young lives so they get an extra 6 months if shitting themselves.

    That's the same thing they said about the war. We'll fight for a few months but if it's too inconvenient for me, I'm out.

    Also, note that you just stated a bunch of stupid shit rather than addressing the doctor’s message. Fools.
