27. What I find intolerable are the number who think they can just ignore it

Nov 2021

Putting everyone else in danger, family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, anyone they cross paths with. When I brought my car in for an oil change last week, I chatted in the waiting room with a lady who would fit in well here. She works at a local school and is absolutely livid since her granddaughter's 5th grade has been quarantined - sent home - twice this year because of a Covid outbreak in the school. She figures it has to be a teacher who has contact with all the kids in that grade since the entire 5th grade was sent home. And, as we know, kids of that age were just recently approved to get the vaccine. And the little girl got it, as did her brother and her Dad - who was very sick - only the Mom escaped it. And those who work in schools absolutely have to be vaccinated and masked since they're regularly in close proximity with a lot of kids. I've seen the kids in my school district getting off the buses nd they're all masked, have since last year so they're used to it.

I take his tweets very seriously. He's been right most of the time, unlike some of the other liberal_mama Nov 2021 #22
Unfortunately he's usually been right Withywindle Nov 2021 #21

I've always understood it as even if vaxxed you can still get covid, just not serious enough yaesu Nov 2021 #24
You can end up in the hospital if you are vaxxed womanofthehills Nov 2021 #28

Agree completely. n/t keep_left Nov 2021 #47

Where does this variant stand for mortality? Renew Deal Nov 2021 #38
Very good question! MoonRiver Nov 2021 #41
It's way too early to know mortality. At least one vaccinated person in Hong Kong is asymptomatic . herding cats Nov 2021 #44
