    Interesting chatting with some folks while watching my kids were playing soccer yesterday - talk inevitably moved to summer plans. Most everyone is taking a trip somewhere to see family. Most everyone seems to have at least one unvaccinated kid (younger) so trying to navigate travel and visiting in that situation:

    “My brother isn’t an anti-Vaxxer but didn’t get this vaccine. We told him we’d just visit outside with him. He got upset so we said we’d wear masks inside. ‘You’re not wearing a damn mask in my house’ was the response.’”

    “Our entire family is mad at us for not coming to visit but they won’t get vaccinated and still think the pandemic is a hoax.”

    It was honestly hard to listen to.

    There is not much you can do just roll with it :shrug2:
    Just hope herd immunity works and takes care of those that are not going to get the shot and think it a hoax. I just hope that they get so sick that they don't die but they are so close to death that they wish Dog will come and take them.
    I know that sounds horrible but take off the tinfoil for a second and think about the rest of the world and not just yourself for a second.

    (Dog am I growing up a little every day?:ohnoes:)

    I saw that yesterday! On top of the lottery they’re starting here as well, it’s pretty obvious they’re out of ideas on how to get the last holdouts across the line.

    AstraZeneca Vaccine Second Dose Rescheduling

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    June 8, 2021 - 9:59 AM

    Nova Scotians who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in the province on or before April 21 will be able to reschedule their second dose appointment before June 30.

    Rescheduling notices will be sent this week by email to the account provided at the time of booking. Anyone who did not provide an email must call the toll-free line at 1-833-797-7772 to reschedule or request an email address be added.

    When rescheduling the second dose, people will select a new date and time at any clinic across the province that has an available appointment.

    People who received a first dose of AstraZeneca can schedule a second dose of either the AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, but Nova Scotia is recommending Pfizer or Moderna. A recent study shows that a second dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) after a first dose of AstraZeneca results in a better immune response than two doses of AstraZeneca. The province’s recommendation is based on this emerging evidence and the risk of rare but serious blood clotting events associated with AstraZeneca.

    Rescheduling notices for second dose appointments will continue to be sent over the following weeks as vaccine supply is received.

    Cool to see lifting of requirements for the hotel stay and even quarantining (once you've shown a negative COVID test) coming for Canadian citizens. I'm still not sure when I'll make it back to NS but not having to do a 2 week quarantine sure makes it a lot more feasible! I even started planning a trip to Vancouver Island today. Or maybe just a trip to Vancouver - it'd be nice to head up, depending on how long test results would take.

    Alot of our restrictions come off tomorrow. Entering phase 2 of our reopening. Cases in my city went from 2000 to 190 in the last while. Phase 2 means the theatre reopens, restaurants allow dine in, libraries reopen, we are allowed to have outdoor gatherings, all limited of course but holy fuck do I miss the theatre and dine in.

    Crossing my fingers we can keep it lasting. We are at 80 in ICUs in the province and 67% of folks have been vaccinated, 17% fully vaccinated.

    New COVID-19 Case at Halifax School

    Education and Early Childhood Development / COVID - 19

    June 9, 2021 - 10:07 PM

    Nova Scotia is reporting one COVID-19 case today, June 9, connected to Fairview Junior High in Central Zone.

    The school will close to students until Monday, June 14, to allow for testing of close contacts and a deep cleaning of the school. The school will inform families about at-home learning.

    Families and students will receive an update before June 14.

    Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of positive 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 for COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms. No self-isolation is required while they wait for test results, unless they have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.
