Re: The Coronavirus Prep/Sweat Thread Pt. III: Are you vaxxed and how do you feel about that?

I fully and sincerely believe that winning the lotto would have terrible, awful effects on my life.

And yet there's no question in my mind that if offered a winning lotto ticket, I would instantly take it and cash it.

CDC just announced that vaccinated people do not need to wear masks indoors or outdoors at most places

in fact, I starting wearing a mask being the captious nelly that I am back in mid march even when I think cdc and fauci were saying it wasn't necessary. cdc also said to wear two masks a few months ago which was right.

CDC has been wrong before, i ll take my cautious approach for now.

That issue actually came up in one of the cases at our firm. The analysis of our attorneys is that it isn't relevant in an at-will state. There has been a suit filed asserting this somewhere, but the opinion at our firm is that it can't win. The only curbs on the employer's requirement are probably Title VII (religious objections) and the ADA (Medical objections).

Broadly speaking, employers can fire you for almost any reason, so long as it isn't discriminatory.

You're not hurting anyone else, so from that standpoint it's totally fine, your risk profile is your own business. That said, you're fearing a monster under the bed if you're fully vaxxed and still worried about this thing wrecking you.

I'm hoping this CDC update will lead states and localities to quickly update things to lift mandates for unvaccinated people. And if they want to include some "feel free to keep wearing a mask" if you want language, that's fine.

Interesting that she didn't (maybe?) believe that a high temperature can be indicative of illness. Not necessarily Covid, of course.

So, did she have to GTFO?

Re: The Coronavirus Prep/Sweat Thread Pt. III: Are you vaxxed and how do you feel about that?

im not worried just CDC in the last year has been right on A LOT of issues, and also kinda wrong on one or two.

yes with a JJ vacc even im being overly cautious or even if i had pfizer or whatever.


i dont think i have had it but who nothign is for certain and unless I live in a bubble I cant be 100% certain i wont get it. just need to do my best to try to avoid it



I think mask mandates are now Going to be loosened and I feel tons of those anti vacc anti covid people are going to abuse saying they have the vacc when they dont

talked to my boss about it. it was an outdoor event but still.

idk i just kinda got internally irate.

if it was an indoors event im prolly being an ******* and grilling her to the point where I get in front of her so she cant walk forward and explain to me what she means and that she is a ****ign complete idiot who shouldn't be parenting if she is one. but thats taking it too far prolly.
I just cant comprehend people not wanting their tempo checked and being disgusted by it whe nits an event that you kinda know is gonna happen, even if you arent informed ahead of time.

one old guy says that i could point the radar thing at his forehead (normally done if you guys knwo which one im talking about) or his wrist. he said his church uses the wrist instead of forehead area

This guy has an interesting string of tweets today discussing this. I am 100% not @ing you in any way here, because I honestly don't care what others do at this particular moment in time, but here is where I basically am:

Monday is my two weeks. As above, the only time I'll wear a mask is if the place requires it.

I'm going Asian and wearing a mask on airplanes for the rest of my life. Maybe subways. Because it isn't an inconvenience, condoms on the other hand **** that noise, **** your health crisis.

Re: The Coronavirus Prep/Sweat Thread Pt. III: Are you vaxxed and how do you feel about that?

My issue is unvaccinated people will be off the hook with little-to-no enforcement of "no mask but let me see your vaccination card" by the vast majority of businesses/places. They pass it off to each other and to smaller children not eligible for vaccine and continue to breed new mutations that evolve to the point where vaccine efficacy suffers. I feel for any parents with young kids who are going to suffer dearly for the sake of tHe EcOnOmY

Look at how long it took Measles to die off after the vaccine was released:



I'm not a Dr., but I believe Measles doesn't mutate, making it easier to stop than a flu or coronavirus.

And of course our idiotic anti-vaxxers are bring it back:
