Yeah they said even if our citizens are vaccinated, we may not allow travel because we don’t know enough about the vaccines. If vaccines don’t work, nothing ever will. Seems like a whack statement.

Ah gotcha. Sigh...well I guess I’ll just go to Hawaii if all else fails and cry on the beach about missing 4 international trips in 2 years.

Whats in it for them to open up with vaccines and somewhat relaxed quarantine/testing — Education $$$ and Tourism $$$ Whats in it for them to shut shop — Prevent lockdowns / spread of covid. My prediction is that at some-point open will be more appealing to that country than close (with vaccines) .

Right so it’s crazy they’re already saying now, even before they’ve started their vaccine distribution, that they won’t consider any outsiders in at all for a year. Maybe they’re economy isn’t in as tight a spot as the US/UK and need the cash flow but still.

Yeah it does...I was really hoping that they’d utilize the inoculation passport that ticketmaster is going to use for their events (I read Salesforce, Oracle, and Microsoft are working with like the WHO on developing one for travel), but I guess not. I’m thinking if I do travel internationally at all this year, I’d only trust countries that 1) have testing/quarantine requirements to get in (aka no Mexico or the Caribbean) and 2) are currently open now because it shows they’re already “comfortable” and may be more accepting once vaccines roll out. I’d consider South Korea and Ireland since they’re both requiring mandatory 2 week hotel stays but hoping that by October, maybe they’d drop that if you proved you are vaccinated. Has anyone been to either during this time? I’ve seen influencers in Seoul and it seems fine (plus Asia does a much better job handling this anyways even if stuff is closed).

Following. Also considering Seoul post vaccination especially if they will let us in without the 2 week hotel stay..

Yeah that 2 week stay would be an additional $1-2k and then that also means 4 weeks PTO. Maybe you could work those 2 weeks you’re in quarantine to save the PTO but you’d be like 18 hours ahead or whatever....so that’d be hella rough. So yeah, really hoping when they start their roll out in March they become more lenient.

😞

Urgent: Booked a skiing trip to Okemo, VT with friends for next weekend. We have all been very covid safe and excited for the trip, but the hotel just told us that we’d have to quarantine for 7 days in the town to stay there. Anyone go there recently and have recommendations on where to stay to avoid such restrictions?

FRIENDSHIP problems. Me and my best friend’s relationship drifted far apart during Covid where we don’t talk anymore. Nothing happened, just lack of effort. We used to be inseparable sisters.

My circle of friends to talk/connect is getting smaller. I used to have a lot of friends but now not so much, I’m 27.

How are folks feeling about in-person staff meetings these days? I'm vaccinated, but still trepidatious about large indoor gatherings. I recall the CDC report noting that most school COVID transmission was adult-to-adult, exacerbating my reservations. My primary concern is colleagues, who will not vaccinate, potentially harboring the virus. It's unclear whether the vaccine would prevent me from asymptomatically contracting the virus & spreading it to my as yet unvaccinated children. Thoughts?
