So the US is going to start offering COVID boosters now. Has there been any mention of whether the government is still footing the bill? Thoughts? I've got mixed feelings... on that and the need for boosters in general.
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
With the new variant of COVID becoming more of an issue will we have the option again to be excused from inventory counts due to anxiety of contracting the virus? I was recently asked to conduct a count but do not feel comfortable with the new strain.
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
For those of us who fall in to the overweight, obese, or morbidly obese categories (71.6% of us) or for anyone with a “pre-existing” condition impacting Covid outcomes - how are you managing anxiety surrounding Covid and the risk factor of being obese? In particular, I’ve seen a few posts addressing obesity and coronavirus on here that - on top of all the news articles in the last few months - have led to crippling anxiety. Additionally, what lifestyle changes have you made, if any?
In one month we cleard out a 5000 sq ft office space and turned it into a lab running high throughput COVID pcr tests (600 per day rn).
So i was seeing the post around Deloitte USI work life balance, culture, hikes and bonuses were comparing to others. Let me tell you, this is the same company which gave me 1 lakh joining bonus, 20k award,10k special compensation, 5k spot award,15k furniture expense, 25k smartphone, 1.5k internet, awesome laptop to work, 15 days covid leaves. And today 22% hike 160% bonus. I mean i just joined 6 months back. What else you want from any company? I have great WLB since joined. #greatCompany #Love❤
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.
I feel like this is normally the time of year I lose interest in my job for the next month and coast.. woke up this morning really excited to jump into December and finish this year out strong. Haven’t felt this motivated since the start of covid… 🤔 anyone else!?
Is it ethical or safe for a fully vaxxed person to fly after confirmed, close exposure to covid during the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend? Does that travel pose a risk to others? Should they voluntarily quarantine for 14 days?
Today our board votes whether or not to send us back on March 1st. We have been virtual all year. My diabetic husband and I both had COVID but we still haven’t been able to get vaccinated and there is a chance that we could get another strain. They could send us back for state testing and the WIDA. I’m nervous.
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
