Hi! Last year was a bit traumatic for me, lost two family members to Covid, separated, etc. I’m still having a hard time getting out and being active. I only leave my apt to do the bare minimum (errands,grocery shopping, etc.). I want to go to the gym but the idea of being around people gives me anxiety. Do you all have any tips on how to overcome this? Any steps I can take towards becoming more active?
Working outpatient. My company says we have enough PPE, but we’re allowed one surgical mask and one pair of gloves per day. I request a N95 for a patient with potential COVID, and got turned down because of only a few N95 masks left and I wasn’t considered high priority (I’m an IM physician). When I asked my boss about this, she said we can’t use N95s unless we’re doing procedures. Not sure if I should start looking for another job or what...

Anyone desi fish in dallas ready to meet up for coffee/Taco Tuesday at some place that’s safe covid-wise? Would be great to make new friends.
Just a rant. The subway is my primary mode of transportation. Without fail, there is always at least 1 person - usually 2 - unmasked. I looked at an unmasked woman when the reminder announcement was made and she shouted, “whatchu lookin at?”. I said, “ignorance and selfishness apparently”. Look, I don’t want to wear a mask either, but it’s required and we are all in this together. I wish the MTA would enforce this.
Hey fellow moms, curious to know about any exceptionally good or bad policies from companies to help parents navigate covid, parenting and work.
My boss asked me for how we could better support parents as winter approaches and younger kids still can’t get vaccinated. Have any of your companies handled things like quarantining with young kids while still working well?
Did Slalom ever have a covid vaccination policy in place, like a condition of employment? Thank you.
Houston folks - does anyone know anywhere for PCR covid test that does lower nose or throat swab and gives result in 1-2 days? (ie less uncomfortable ways) Plz recommend 🙏🏻
Do you ever feel like your life has just been paused for years? Not because of covid but just because you retreat away from it
Promotions reduced due to covid and found out I’m being held back on my senior promotion (Canada). I’ve been on the fence about leaving for a while, and this may be it. Do you think it makes sense to take my accounting experience over to an FP&A role in terms of transferability? I feel like a lot of the analysis and excel / ppt skills transfer over, but it is a lit of tax knowledge to just leave behind.
I don’t care a ton about tax subject matter though
Did banking companies provide work from home before covid?

In case anyone is interested: free COVID testing around Chicago if anyone is interested. Around a dozen sites or so!
Looking at an engagement in Philly downtown for 9-12 months. Just moved to DC during COVID so not familiar with how bad commutes/traffic can really be. Should I relo or just take Amtrak/drive weekly? (PS: no kids, no wife, no pets)
While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
What are the best virtual tools for CM?
I've used intuition and visual assessment prior to COVID. Now we find we need to more trust on how the client views the change needed (or not recognizing the need).
Good morning everybody. New to Fish Bowl. Got an invite from a colleague so I thought I would give it a go. My passion is Character Building which I believe is essential if you are going to be an effective administrator. I have reached a point in my current position where it appears that change is not welcome or wanted, a sort of “point of no return.” My question, anyone else pursuing other opportunities during Covid? If so, any success or is it all pretty much at a stand still right now?
So...seems like shut downs are headed our ways. Why are schools requiring us to come in? I worked for multiple teachers last shut down, and honestly went above and beyond any other para in our building. I have three kids ages 8-11. This will put me under a tremendous hardship if I have to go to work everyday and find a sitter. Not to mention- when I brought this to my principals attention he said I might have to take Covid leave. Covid leave only lasts so long- correct? The. What do I do?
Anyone know of volunteering options around the Fairfax va area? Covid has me feeling like I’m stuck in a rut and I really want to make a difference where I can. With my current client, work is very busy and I want options close to home and not in dc etc
I am currently situated in the US and plan to do a landing in Canada for PR stamping. Any recent experiences going through this? Can I just land, get the stamping and fly back? Or do I need to wait back for negative covid test?

Anyone else recently join FDD and feel completely lost? I’ve been in the group for a few weeks now (audit transfer) and overall feel like I need a little more guidance. The manager I’ve been working with has been busy on his other deal and OOO a lot for personal reasons, so not available much for questions. I’ve been trying to dig into the files myself and ask as many questions as I can, but sometimes I don’t even know the right questions to ask. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey all - 2 years in consulting so far as a fairly "type b" personality - relaxed, uncompetitive, enjoy socializing with my colleagues. To be clear, this is not the same as being lazy or irresponsible - I am diligent and do my work well.
Nonetheless I think we can generally say finance/professional services etc. reward "type a" habitudes on its face.

This year marks my second performance review.

Anybody else feel like they took year 1 of the pandemic for granted, from a perspective of learning new skills / self-improvement? Personally, I feel like I did.

Also, given that D recently communicated we’ll be virtual first until September, I’m trying to up my cooking game, and learning a bit more about home improvement. What new skills / hobbies are you all working on?
