Need advice: baby is 8 months. We started her in daycare at 6 months. Liked the daycare but concerned because not all caregivers were vaccinated. Liked daycare overall because we wanted to not manage anyone, socialization, etc. We got more nervous with Covid as daycare did not mandate after FDA approval and other mandates came out. We found a nanny share and informed the daycare we are pulling her out - the director calls me and says the remaining teachers have received the 1st dose. Cont.
Anyone else bored AF during this Covid-19 era? What is your Covid-19 pastime? Need some new hobbies/routines.
I have a nephew in HS in PA. He recently tested positive for Covid but was told he could return to in person as long as he wore a mask I think that is insanely crazy! Knowing my nephew he will do what he is told and follow all rules but what message ia the district then sending when this variant is more contagious? I don't understand!
Has anyone been extremely close to quitting their job during Covid to only back out at the last minute? I’m definitely feeling burnout from being cooped up inside all day.
I should have posted in this bowl... but Coronavirus is forcing me to freelance for the first time in 2 years. I have 5-6 years UX experience, is 40 hourly a reasonable rate? Should I negotiate...
What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!
Soo I know this has been asked a million times, but since everything changes week to week, what are others in high COVID caseload areas doing for preschool/daycare? I’m more asking out of concern for my kid’s socialization—we are lucky to be able to afford a nanny. I feel so incredibly lost.
Does anyone know if the bright horizons payments during covid is taxable? Is there a tax form that I'm expected to get?
I was never a perfume person, but recently decided I want to be. We don’t go anywhere notable with COVID around, so I just wear it around the house in my lounge outfits (aka uniform of the past two years). Still perks me up though! I’m curious 🐠, what are your go-to scents?? I’m obsessed with Prada Candy Night.
TTC 2.5 years, after multiple failed egg retrievals/pgs testing, & COVID-19 break, starting a new IVF cycle tonight. Need some love and luck :)
Whats the best at home Covid test? Looking for something which is fairly accurate, is there a list of tests approved by cdc?
I don’t understand who gave the confidence to the politicians bragging how prepared their districts/cities/states are prepared for COVID. I live in suburb Jersey and cannot find any testing location opening in the foreseeable future under $120. I just want to see if I have covid. It’s not for travel and stuff. Do I really have to pay that much? Guess my best option is to travel to the City and get tested at the pop up testing tents. No wonder why COVID spreads. Rant over, symptom continues
Has anyone been to the UK lately from the US? What are the Covid requirements / restrictions? Thank you!
Shoutout to whichever firm helped stand up the government’s free Covid test ordering website. Legitimately shocked at how smooth it’s running and hasn’t crashed (yet)
Just got my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine! So glad to be protected and to (hopefully) pass on antibodies to my little one.
I applied for a role the other day and successfully made it past a screener who would be the person I report to but I never spoke to a recruiter. When is the right time to ask about expected salary? I feel like I’m wasting both our times if the salary isn’t right

Anyone here use some devils lettuce to help with sleep? My go-to when I’m on a string of sleepless nights has been to first try teas & melatonin, then drinking the next night if that doesn’t work. I took a small hit of some medical last night before bed and slept for 8 hours.
