    The current scuttlebutt on Twitter is that it's TFWs. Dumbasses who went on vacation are supposed to do the government-approved hotel quarantine thing.

    I'm surprised with the consistent number of new cases, NS hasn't locked things down again for a bit. Seems like it was less drastic when I was there before Christmas and it shut down.

    i think 1/3-1/4 of the cases are temp foreign workers. If we had community spread they would lock it down but I think every case is accounted for and properly contact traced.

    Newfoundland and Labrador Border Opening, Other Restrictions Eased

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    April 6, 2021 - 11:58 AM

    Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, April 6, that the Newfoundland and Labrador border is opening and some other restrictions are being eased effective 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 7.

    “While we continue to carefully watch the case numbers in our region, we are currently in a good position to open our borders to all our Atlantic neighbours,” said Premier Rankin.

    With this change, all residents of Atlantic Canada can come to Nova Scotia without having to self-isolate upon arrival and without having to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form. Residents and travelers must continue to follow all public health measures in Nova Scotia.

    “We are fortunate to be in a position to take these cautious steps, thanks in large part to Nova Scotians continuing to follow our public health measures,” said Dr. Strang. “We’re also now able to support businesses operating at full capacity and to allow an increase in numbers for sports, arts and culture groups.”

    Malls, retail businesses and fitness facilities can return to operating at 100 per cent of their capacity, with physical distancing.

    Sports practices, training and games, and arts and culture rehearsals and performances can have 75 people. While physical distancing and masks are not required for these activities, they are recommended when possible. Spectators continue to be allowed at these events except when they are held at schools.

    I’m driving 2.5 hours to get the shot earlier than I’m eligible. WA is opening up for full eligibility on the 15th. However, I caught wind of a federal clinic (not a state one) being run in eastern Washington that was set up specifically to try and encourage more people in that area to get vaccinated. It’s an area both with a large native population as well as being Trump-land. They offer 1000 appointments a day and about 800 walk ups. They’ve yet to get to capacity and are not checking any eligibility. From what I’ve read, you don’t even need ID (there are also a lot of undocumented farm workers in the area and they wanted to provide a “safe zone” for vaccinations).

    Im excited. More excited to get a shot in my son’s arm. Even with numbers going up again, school’s are opening up and I’ve been nervous about him going back into school especially with the new variants.

    All the at risk people I’m close to have been vaccinated so I really don’t care when I get mine. It will be nice but it’s not worth stressing over now.

    The variants have me a little nervous but I'm also a bit (a lot?) older than you and it's my age group that seems to be getting hit harder with the variants.
