    I got my First Pfizer shot on Saturday and in the "System" for my second shot in 4 months.
    I am sitting here trying to have a chat with Bill Gates and crew right now. Does anyone know how to receive messages back from them after getting this shot or do I need both?
    What happened to that other guy that was here for a while, see this is what happens when you guys run people off.
    I have questions that need answers and I am not going to go into the dredges of the tubes to find them.

    Got my first shot of the Moderna vaccine this morning. Feeling fine, ran my fastest 5K in 22:41, and then followed up with a good upper body workout. My arm is getting progressively more sore as the night goes on, similar to the flu shots. Also having some crazy muscle twitches in that arm.

    You have to use your 5G nanobot antenna. You may not be getting enough reception, try wearing a tinfoil hat: it should help capture the 5G signals to your head. Stand with your mouth agape, the parabolic dish created with your tongue should help emit the 5G signals; try yodeling to find the right frequency.

    I was playing poker online with friends in Montreal and Toronto on Saturday night and the overall confusion and anger with the vaccine rollout was horrible. My brother was the only other person who had a first shot and doesn’t get his second shot until August. I get my second shot at the end of the month.

    Further Restrictions on Travel to Nova Scotia

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    April 20, 2021 - 1:11 PM

    Nova Scotia is placing additional restrictions on travel to the province, Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, April 20.

    Effective April 22 at 8 a.m., people from outside Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador will not be allowed to enter Nova Scotia unless their travel is essential or they are permanent residents of Nova Scotia.

    “This is not the time for people to come to Nova Scotia for anything other than essential travel,” said Premier Rankin. “Given that the pandemic is now being driven by variants that transmit more easily, this strong action is necessary to protect Nova Scotians.”

    The following types of travel from outside Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador are considered essential:

    • people who live in Nova Scotia but their primary employment is in another province
    • federally approved temporary foreign workers
    • people who need to participate in-person in a legal proceeding in another province
    • post-secondary students coming to study in Nova Scotia
    • post-secondary students returning to their primary or family residence in Nova Scotia and parents who accompany them
    • parents picking up a student in Nova Scotia to take them home as quickly as possible
    • people who can demonstrate that they already have a new permanent address in Nova Scotia as of April 21 and are moving here permanently
    • people traveling for child custody reasons following the child custody protocol
    • people who are exempt from self-isolation following the exempt traveler protocol
    • people traveling between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick for work, school or children in child care, following conditions in the protocol for travel between these provinces
    “We won’t turn away permanent residents of Nova Scotia if they travel, but we are giving strong direction to not travel unless it is absolutely necessary,” said Dr. Strang. “This is a critical time for us to cut off travel-related cases at the source. I am asking all Nova Scotians to put their plans aside and follow this direction.”

    Details are being finalized on further requirements for people who must isolate after essential travel and will be shared soon.

    Rotational workers must now fully isolate when they first arrive in Nova Scotia. Once they receive their first negative test result, they can switch to modified self-isolation. Specialized workers will only be allowed for critical infrastructure work.

    Travel from outside of Atlantic Canada will not be allowed for funerals for a four-week period and will only be approved under exceptional circumstances for end-of-life visits.

    Anyone isolating in Nova Scotia after travel within Canada should get tested at the beginning and end of their isolation.

    Anyone who is not required to isolate should get tested three times in their first 14 days home in Nova Scotia.

Six are under investigation, one of which was identified Tuesday, April 20, at Mount Edward Elementary.

    Three cases are in Northern Zone. One is related to travel outside of Canada. The person is self-isolating, as required. The other two cases are currently under investigation.

    Three cases are in Eastern Zone and are related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada. The people are self-isolating, as required.

    One of the cases that is under investigation in Central Zone is a staff member at Ocean View Continuing Care Centre, a long-term care facility in Eastern Passage. As a precaution, residents are being isolated and cared for in their rooms and the facility is closed to visitors and designated caregivers. Ocean View is working with public health on the testing that is required for residents and staff. All residents were offered vaccinations and the majority of residents accepted full vaccination with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Ocean View is encouraging and supporting vaccination of remaining residents and staff.

    Another case that is under investigation in Central Zone is connected to Joseph Giles Elementary in Dartmouth. The school will remain closed to students until Tuesday, April 27. A deep cleaning will take place and students will learn from home during the closure. Families will receive an update before students return to school on Tuesday.

    As with any positive case, public health will be in touch with any close contacts of these cases and advise of next steps, including testing. Everyone who is a close contact will be notified, tested and asked to self-isolate for 14 days.

    Out of an abundance of caution, public health is recommending that all students and staff be tested. No self-isolation is required, unless people have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 79 active cases of COVID-19.

    Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 4,562 Nova Scotia tests on April 20.

    As of April 20, 230,801 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 33,356 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    Man 7 schools this week. 6 elementary. Any of you with kids that aren’t required to wear masks, probably wouldn’t hurt to start having them do so with all of these school cases this week. And no I’m not at tinfoil hat stage yet :p

    i didn’t realize this existed. Someone posted it on Reddit last night. Lists cases at schools for the past 30 days:

    That’s 8 Schools since Sunday now and they are pretty spread out location wise. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be not so great again

    My wife and I decided to put our plans to visit NS this summer on pause. Or at least start making more plans for a summer in Seattle / Washington.

    I'd be willing to bet that we are back below 40 active cases in a few weeks.
