STB specifically announced we were postponing further announcements just the other day. We’re “back” 1-2 days a week right now

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?

Happy July 4th everyone! Am 35 M and feel so lonely this weekend. Have been holed up and just can’t stop crying last few days.

Any suggestions or help please? Another holiday alone will be too much to bear. These covid months have really put me in depression.
