Really struggling in the home stretch of covid - I'm going to be eligible for my shot soon but can't stop focusing on all the bad, like what if I get it, I shouldn't see my partner because what if their roommates give it to them, etc. The closer I get to being 'safe', the more it takes over my mind and digs in anxiety - any advice, tips, or comiseraters?
How has your work been affected by COVID-19? I’m a regulatory and transactional attorney at an AmLaw 100 firm. Everyone has been telling me that health care will be fine (continued in comments)

Is anyone else’s parents blatantly disregarding covid? My mother is “sick and tired” of covid - and we have my 95 year old grandmother staying with us for two weeks over Christmas. We had agreed to quarantine ahead of time (which I did), but when I got in town I realized she has not been too cautious- even with my grandmother here now. I’m so upset with her and I cannot understand why such a smart person would operate this way. Am I overreacting or is she being extremely selfish?
I’ve forgotten how to speak to people face to face after covid. Ive forgotten how to make friends, and feeling super awkward to get out there and talk to new people. Anyone here feeling this way or is just me?
I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.
Where do those PPEs end up after use? Landfills? Rivers? The Ocean? I remember seeing images of fish and turtles with straws sticking through them before COVID. I can't imagine those plastic gloves and masks being helpful, especially in low income countries they don't have the ability to do mass cleanups.
Does your firm send out office wide emails when people test positive for Covid and list the floors the person was on? For supposedly trying to preserve anonymity, they really narrow the number of people by listing office floors
Folks who got boosted and got Covid, how were your symptoms? Is it possible to work through it or it puts you off for a couple days or more?
Others who got boosted, would you stay at home or go out in these next couple weeks?
Covid delayed my PR by 2.5 years and now that I finally have my PR in Canada, I can start looking for jobs. I’m in the digital marketing field for the last 8 years would love to hear from those who might be able to refer me in their organisations.
Hi Joel, in 2009 following the economic downturn, JetBlue ran the “All You Can Jet” promotion to stimulate travel. Do you plan to bring back this deal in light of the coronavirus? Please do!
Planning a trip to Glacier this summer and would like to visit Banff while that way. I see Canada has random testing for even fully vaccinated travelers. Has anyone crossed the border from US to Canada during COVID? Would I likely run into issues? For context I am a US citizen and fully vaccinated.
It used to be so easy to do research on hospitals. Now you have to sift through all the Covid stuff first
Older workers and COVID unemployment... bogus firings and more. IBM is called out specifically here. The EEOC found that IBM engaged in “systematic” discrimination against older workers and there’s an open class action lawsuit. The stories in this video are appalling. If you are young, pay attention. You may be older one day - if you’re lucky. This can eventually come around to you. https://youtu.be/sjr27_K8SWc
We recently moved to a neighborhood (also new to USA). With covid we were home bound and my toddler takes lots of walks. Friendly neighbors give him stuff (books, toys etc.) when he is with our sitter. Are return gifts a norm ? I am from India and we usually give homemade food/desserts as thank you. Any other things we could share that shows appreciation ? On a side note - none of them socially distance and we had to politely decline a couple of movie night, bbq parties.
Pre-COVID, what are the avg, median, max, min stats for annual salary raises at Deloitte?
I have received an offer as SD1 at Amazon Gurgaon. I have 1 yr and 6 months of experience. I did my BTech in computer science from 2016-20. I had some active backlogs as well. Due to covid, many exams were not conducted and as for the ones that did happen, the results are taking forever to come. Right now I have one backlog and the result is yet to be announced. I am positive I will pass. Will this affect my offer from Amazon during background check as I am yet to receive degree?
So Covid incentive payments have finally reach my “big law” Midwest firm. We are non cravath and bonuses have generally sucked but this year they’ve basically doubled the bonus structure which is, yes, totally incentivizing me differently. I’m currently on pace for 1950, but if I average 44 hours a week for the rest of the year, I can make 2150, which would give me an after tax bonus of about $30k or enough to pay off the worst of my loans. Worth it?

My pay has been frozen for a few years. Do I stick it out? I feel like our school is stuck back in time.
In years past, we had a program for high school kids (juniors and seniors) to shadow different careers by taking tours of their facilities and following people at their jobs. Obviously this is not possible right now. What can they do instead?

Had my first crazy “back to school” dream! My classroom was full of messy, unmade twin beds and I was stressing over who’s responsibility it was to change the sheets, and panicking because my room wasn’t ready for the first day of school. Anyone else! 🤔😂

Does your school still have a school librarian?
Our district is gradually bringing kids back, starting with K-2 a few weeks ago.￼ but now the numbers are ramping up again. Nonetheless, our superintendent wants to plow forward. In my opinion, he’s way too worried about the public. Anyway we have now been told that we cannot be less than 6 feet away from any child even if we are both wearing masks. The same is true for the children. So how do you teach a child to read when you are over 6 feet away from them? That’s a rhetorical question.

Are those clear face shields really protecting you from the virus? it seems like only the medical-grade/N95 masks are legit.
