Does anyone else think the Delta variant will lead to shutdowns and layoffs again? I want to leave my job but fear being the first to get the chop if March 2020 repeats itself. Should I just jump ship already? If it helps, I’m not in travel PR.

We have only limited employees (like less than 10 in 5 different offices) coming in and have already seen 5 breakthrough cases.

There’s no perfect data here, but UK/Israel report that the best vaccines (Pfizer or moderna) are 60-80% effective at stopping infection of delta variant. And 85-95% effective at stopping hospitalization. And 95-98% effective at stopping death. And that’s for vaccinated people - you can get infected and then infect others who are unvaccinated including children. This risk is not worth the advantages of coming into an office from time to time. Or if you must, wear a mask still while we are raging into our 4th wave of such high community spread. The vaccine lower effectiveness against delta won’t be such a big deal when the level of community spread is super low - those are two factors that always should be calculated when talking about risk. In isolation neither of them mean anything.

No, I don’t. While the effects on the unvaccinated are substantial, the reports are that vaccinated people are only getting mildly ill with delta. Only 3% of hospitalized COVID patients including the delta variant are vaccinated individuals. The answer isn’t another lockdown (with economic consequences) it’s vaccinations. That’s why you saw stronger government pushes yesterday in the requirement of vaccination for some affiliated employees.

None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
