I have a question, why would you say you’re Covid-19 positive when you haven’t been tested yet?

Attention seeking on an anonymous forum... Brilliant thinking, friend

This thread is so dumb.

Yes we do know. That’s not the dumb part. You feeling tired for a week, and starting an AMA as a self proclaimed “Covid positive” healthy person for attention is. You have no first hand insight on the testing process, and no symptoms beyond fatigue. You don’t even have a positive test result. So when you tell people to “ask you anything” and you have no answers or first hand insights, yeah - we’re gonna call it out.

As dumb as I think this thread is, I do hope you aren’t sick. And if you are I hope you get through this okay.

What were your first symptoms? Do you have a bad case or mild case? Is it getting better or worse?

CD1: Attention, obviously.

When did you get your positive test result? Do you know how or where you contracted it?

Have you been socially distancing and wearing a mask?

I always wear my mask when I’m out and haven’t left my apartment since getting back from a hiking trip some friends and I took for the 4th

Hi folks, I need some advice.. I’ve been with my company 18+ years. Over covid I moved to FL from NYC but now my office is reopened 50%. They’ve been expecting me to commute weekly at my own expense. It’s now too expensive to look at resigning a lease in nyc. Should I expect them to pay for anything over 50% since that’s the requirement of in-office time? Or should I cut my loses and move on? The only issue is much less opportunity/pay in FL but I’m going broke for this company

My leadership of a startup in California is very anti-COVID restrictions and has recently said that they want to force employees to come into the office, no exceptions, even though our County is still in the highest restriction level. None of our roles require anyone to be in the office to complete their responsibilities. They also don't want to follow guidelines (like masks), but I think they'd be willing to somewhat if they were forcing people in. Anyone have advice here and how you are supporting leadership through this? I don't know of any fines related to bucking the restrictions. I do know about the mandatory reporting implemented by Gov. Newsom, but that's extent of it. How are you handling this at your company?

What I'm lacking some self awareness over is, how do you "originate" opportunities? Of course the best way is to do when you already have a foot in the door through an existing engagement.

How does, "hey I identified a need that we could pitch for" look like?

For the past few months, people have been praising police officers and other front line workers. But now, a sudden turn of events.

There is a problem, but let’s not criminalize the heroic police officers for the racist acts of some individuals. The best solution, in my opinion, is that we need to specify the problem and resolve it by appropriate action on those individuals. That officer needs to be tried in court for murder to provide justice for what he did. But let’s not punish every officer.
