Has anyone travelled to the US recently? If so- were you able to use the $40 COVID test at Shoppers as a negative test to cross the border? I’m considering going for a long weekend at the end of the month but trying to sort out the covid-related logistics.

I used the PCR at shoppers. It’s more like $200. I don’t think the &40 test meets the requirement

I used the $40 test for business travel into the US and it worked no problem. It is an antigen test, which is approved.

With the holidays coming up, partners and client relationship owners, do you get your clients gifts? Pre-COVID we sent treats to the office, but most of my clients are still home. Would it be appropriate to send gifts directly to them? If so, any ideas on things/price limits?

2 years out of undergrad and planning to apply next year.

Mostly just venting but ugh how do I get LORs!!

Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.

I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle.

Not work related but idk where to ask this. We’ve been invited to our first post Covid cookout. It’s at my husband’s former colleagues place so we don’t the hosts too well but we know there are not going to be any kids so mostly a grown up football party. What would bring to it? Because of the current scenario I’m skeptical of bringing my home cooked dip.
