I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….

Based on other countries with similar fully vaxxed rates (~50% of total pop) cases will probably shoot up really quickly over a couple weeks and then go back down even quicker. Here in the northeast I’m not as concerned but southern states may feel it a bit longer. Overall I don’t see a huge impact

It won’t be.

I think the main variables are degree of spread and “leaders” degree of giving a fuck. I’m having a hard time imagining the latter is very high…

I think any employer who would put employees at risk regardless of the level of that risk would be destroyed.

We’re seeing employers (most of them really) do exactly that right now. The time to stop travel and stop re-opening is now - not AFTER cases shoot up.

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 wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?

Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that.

And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
