Yeah right! Covid stood no chance against Trump because he had a chopper take him to a hospital where he had a dedicated medical team pump him with some of the most expensive drugs and secret service agents that risked their lives so that he can take a car ride
Those that got Covid recently, when did you lose your sense of smell and when did you get it back?
Hi! I’m not sure if this is the right question but I’d like to be fitter. I’m 230lb and 5’8 so it’s really bad. Because of covid I haven’t gone to the gym, I have 2 weights at home. Any recommendations on workouts from home? Running or jogging hurts like hell so I’ve been trying to walk at least 5 miles per day, some push-ups and sit-ups. I have watched a few videos online as well. Thank you guys
Anyone on here get significantly less intimate with their partner since covid started? We both work from home so we don’t get much time away from each other. My partner has admitted to not having much desire to be intimate even though he still loves me. Anyone else faced this? How did you get out of the rut? For context, dating for around 4 years, staying together for 3.
Has anyone travelled recently to the Caribbean islands with unvaccinated kids? Looking for some recommendations. Preference is for places that 1) are relatively low in terms of Covid numbers, 2) private and not so busy resorts 3) ease of travel
How much is your rent? I make about 120k per year and live with my parents since covid started. Hoping to move out but NYC is super expensive. Need a baseline, no financial support from parents (low income) so have been saving in hopes of buying.
May be joining the “SO and I broke up during COVID” club. We’ve been together 5 years. It’s always been rocky because we’re such strong personalities but lately it’s just been getting more and more difficult. We’re at the point where we really need to decide whether it’s just better to part ways. We had a really dumb fight last night but it feels like it may be the one that breaks the camels back. Literally any tips would be appreciated— trying to pull myself together to get through work
Staffed on a case in Shanghai starting this week - should I be worried about the corona virus?? NAMR here
Could use some advice on navigating work/Covid risk/pregnancy. Currently 7w2d and it took many many years for me to get pregnant. This baby is an unlikely miracle. I am a BigLaw attorney and my firm has no official WFH policy. Most people are operating under a hybrid approach. I have been WFH since I found out I was pregnant and bc of Omicron, no one has said anything. People are starting to go into the office more, in person meetings and depositions are being scheduled and idk what to do. CONT.
Has anybody had rebound covid? I had first symptoms around last Wednesday, was symptom free by Sunday, but feeling sick today (congested, headache, tired). Is this a known trajectory/ has anybody else had this?

Israel study showing that vaccinated individuals with breakthrough infections have the same rates of Long-Covid symptoms as those who were never infected (very good news). Compared to unvaccinated individuals with COVID-19 infections at much higher rates. https://twitter.com/epi_michael/status/1483143937359495172?s=21
Is Covid finally becoming endemic? Most Omicron cases (according to my ER wife nurse) are very mild, and not worth the hospital visit. How will/should this impact us as educators?
I miss swimming but all the gyms nearby with pools are closed with covid. I also used to like rock climbing. What all physical activities do you enjoy doing from home? In NYC so it is very cold right now and doesn't really feel like hiking options are available
How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!
I have a brief resume gap from near the beginning of covid but have been at a new employer for >1 year. I’ve been asked about said gap during in-house interviews, but it’s generally been cursory and I give the explanation agreed upon by former employer. Was pressed a bit harder recently by being asked “will x former employer confirm [the story]?” Is this in and of itself a bad sign? Are they trying to catch a lie?
Serious question. I started developing symptoms of covid last Friday. This included fatigue which worsened last Saturday. The next couple of days it got better but I started to develop cold symptoms such as runny nose, phlegm, and nasal congestion around Tuesday. I finally tested on Wednesday and came out positive. It’s been over a week since my first symptom, but I’m not sure when to test again to see if I am positive.
Any doctors here? Hoping to interpret whether this LabCorp test means I had COVID (suspected late December) or just am reflecting recent mRNA booster (late November)

Cerebral is hiring for remote RNs, the pay is basement while requiring 45 hour work weeks and only offering 1099 employment. Let me get this straight.. $30/hour, 45 hour work weeks, no benefits. That’ll be a hard pass.

My wife and I are both COVID positive. Anyone who has it knows that it is a battle. Some morning you wake up feeling good and a couple hours go by and you’ve been hit by a train. Not good for solid chunks of working time. Plus, if you extend yourself too much while feeling good, the negative side is that much worse. I tried explaining it to the senior partner I work most closely with and he said “you will do anything to get out of work.” I am a hard worker who gets everything done correctly and
