In Cobb, students do NOT have to get tested for COVID after quarantine before coming back. The numbers are completely false in Cobb as students are not getting tested and instead are just returning when symptoms disappear.

This is the same thing for my county too. My son got quarantined on Wednesday and I called to get him tested and no one would test him because he didn’t have symptoms. They said to wait until he gets them. It’s no wonder these kids are returning without tests.

We have had several classrooms to be quarantined among our schools and positive cases in Dodge. Our entire football team had to be quarantined.

An athlete on the girl’s basketball team was positive so now her teammates and coaches have to quarantine. I don’t know what #’s are as the county is not being up front about it. The Board of Ed wrote a letter to Governor Kemp requesting Teachers be moved up vaccine list from 1b to 1a and he said no.

That doesn’t surprise me, but it’s disgusting! I have had seven positive students in my class this school year. Our soccer team has had to quarantine twice since the season started last month. My uncle is a teacher and died of Covid. There is no good reason to not move us up.

At my school, I don't THINK they are. I do know several students are quarantined, though.

We have only had one student with a positive test. He did not infect anyone else at school.

Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal.

Need some insight into menopause. I’ve been living with my family during covid and it’s been very difficult with my mom. She is mostly in a bad mood, constantly picks fights, has mood swings at times, and is miserable. Some of this is due to other issues at home but I’m wondering if it could be hormonal. Is this menopause?

I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU). I would like to do something to support his wife; they have 2 young kids & she’s expecting; I’m sure the stress on her is exhausting. Any suggestions for what would be helpful and appreciated? This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them

I just quit watching the Olympics 2day :( I've been following since Athens 2004 and I started liking some not so common sports like fencing and taekwondo (started trying fencing but covid hit, sadly - been out ever since).

My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?
