So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
My dad tested positive for covid. We have ICICI Lombard from india insurance for him. I need to take him to hospital for further test as his fever is going up. Anyone had experienced this. How the hospital treat uninsured or people who have foreign insurance.

Looking for advice on dealing with a boss who is extremely difficult to work for. For example, my colleague has worked entirely remotely since COVID hit in March. She had planned to make 2 trips out to her family out of state during the holidays (for Thanksgiving & Christmas) but recently requested to stay during the interim, when it looked like her apartment might be under voluntary evacuation due to wildfires. Said colleague lives alone and found it beneficial to be around family (cont below)
ISO recommended brands for work out gear. Running, long walks. Functional but also cute for those random zoom calls. For various reasons I’ve clung to gear for WAY too long, and am desperate. Posting in this bowl...cuz well...covid made me very aware how past due this purchase is.

What activities could my parents do with my 3 month old? Background: This is their first grandbaby and the first time that they are meeting her due to COVID. They are coming for two weeks while I transition back to work and are staying in an Airbnb close to our apartment. We live in LA. Just trying to get some ideas! :)
Due to COVID impact on my family, I had to take a long break (10 months) from work, went back to the home country and be with them. Since things are settled now I would like to get back to work. I have over 9 years of experience and on H1-B visa. How should I justify the gap to the recruiters? What kind of questions can I expect?
How does everyone feel about covid and traveling? Seeing uptrends in the upcoming months.

Curious, how many of you have a work teammate or family member sick with COVID-19? (I have none so far, knock wood, but an acquaintance or two.)
What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.
Ask serious questions, fear monger, share hand sanitizer recipes. All things are welcome in the coronavirus bowl

For those in a niche space, what are some ways of avoiding the news that you’re interviewing elsewhere from leaking? I’m in a niche consulting area with a fair amount of people playing musical chairs.
When I was interviewed I was told I would need to make a choice between doing this job right or having a life. Were any of the tips/warning signs you were given accurate?
On vacation this week 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
How does remote editing work? I haven’t ever made a TVC before so was curious about the process when doing it remotely.
Any EY-Parthenon / past interviewees 🐠 have insight into the interview process for Strategy and Transactions? Behavioral, cases, market sizing etc. Would love any and all advice, thank you 🙏🏽.
Right now, I’m at 48-72 hours with some places that I’m expecting will reach out with offer letters. I’m used to getting the offer within 24 hours after the final interview. Has me curious: What’s the longest you’ve ever waited on an offer letter?

Have an opportunity to be a loaned staff for a company I find really interesting for 2 years. Should I be cautious of this? Seems like a good opportunity but I’d likely miss out on the typical career progression of a big 4 firm
My little girl now has an option of returning to school in-person through her spring break. My spouse is a high risk + extra careful when it comes to all things pandemic. I'm worried about my little kid's lost year & want her to go to school & interact with her friends, learn, etc. She's been home since March. Schools are being extra careful, maintaining all precautions, etc. But I can't convince my spouse to agree to this. Anyone else in a similar situation?
Just got my H1B extension approved. If I decide to switch firm, can I go abroad (where h1b stamping is open) to get my visa stamped between the time I quit my current firm and join a new employer? Or do I need to be employed at the time of visa stamping? Are there any risks in doing this?
What is this in my hotel room?!
