Uhhh...that’s weird AF. You don’t need a stranger grabbing you meds ever and definitely not now. Instacart delivers from CVS. Also, most things can be ordered on Amazon.

I’m confused, a stranger reached out to on Facebook to offer you medicine...? And he couldn’t see your profile picture to know you’re a woman? How did he know you were sick? I guess I’d appreciate the sentiment but I’d be weirded out if a complete stranger offered to give me medicine.

No on fishbowl someone saw I was sick and reached out. As soon as he realized I wasn’t a guy he said something about being married and bounced. Apparently I have no networking value.

Does anyone know how insurance work when you leave a company? Say I leave on day X, does my insurance ends on day X as well or it will last til the end of the two week period after my last paycheck (because insurance premium is still held from paycheck)? And does medical insurance reimburse / cover based on the date of treatment or the date of they processing the claim? Thank you so much!

Help! My husband and have a blended family and different views on CVD. I am vaccinated and my son tested positive a few days ago and has been sick. He's currently quarantined however my husbands HS son has been sick for 2 weeks and have completely disregarded all CDC protocol or school guidelines. I'm surprised his school has not sent him home. They work, play, anything they want. I am so angry and upset I am not sure what to do. I teach in another district but feel like I need to do something.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
