Our county started a b cohorts from the beginning. Our school is a small alternative school but next week we go back with everybody four days a week.

Yes, and our BOE caved to that pressure despite rising numbers and now our county is in the red based on our percentage of positive cases vs the population (a relatively small county)

I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?

Umm I'm a prostitute?? My now ex believed he deserved sex when he gave me covid and stayed with me to take care of me, so apparently I owed him sex?

I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.

Lol to the person who posted the picture comparing hairdressers resuming work to people illegally crossing the border. Comparing COVID to the Flu is ludicrous and apples to oranges but comparing breaking a law to violating a mandate (although in their example Texas is open) isn’t apples and oranges when it fits their narrative apparently 🤨

My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...

There are millions of people dying of wars (like Afghan), famine (like Yemen) and also Covid. Why should I be okay with my company donating and speaking on my behave with so much focus on BLM? I agree it matters, but overall, we live a good life in the United States comparing to the rest of the word, regardless of race. The attention to race equality is important but I feel bad for the poor forgotten souls that are facing other issues on earth. They matter too?

I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.

People need to start flying, booking hotels, visiting retail stores. We need our sanity and economy back. We need to understand that if we do not allow our cash to circulate we are all going to be in trouble pretty soon. Enough of just buying on Amazon, liquor stores, weed man etc. Go back to your normal life and spending pattern and wear your masks and sanitize. I understand that most people live under fear but what is the point of being alive if you are not living. COVID-19 is here for a whols
