With omicron changing COVID into a less severe form similar to a flu, is the end in sight or will the state and local government of California and Los Angeles continue to milk this as a supposed crisis? Will masks ever go away in this place?

I’d love to keep wearing masks forever, so random guys aren’t constantly saying “You should smile!” “Why aren’t you smiling?” 🙄🙄🙄

Omicron might have been less severe if you were vacced, but we don’t know if that’s permanent till the next few strains come and go. My fear is omicron merging with a more deadly strain, omicrons speed at speeding with delta’s knack for sending people to the hospital would be catastrophic. Just too early to tell.

Hi Ladies! I’m a sales rep for a private duty non-medical Homecare agency and when making cold visits at hospitals or clinics to introduce myself I’m often not allowed in. It seems that due to covid they aren’t allowing un-scheduled visits and since I’m new to the area I don’t really know anyone. Anyone experiencing similar challenges? What other ways can I get my foot in the door and meet the key players to begin to establish those relationships?

Tested positive for Covid two days after exposure to a confirmed case. I had mild symptoms for a couple of days. I have been taking a rapid test every couple of days. I continue to test positive and it’s been 9 days now. Should I continue to isolate? What is the consensus? I read that we are most contagious a couple days before and after presenting symptoms and that we can stop isolating after a 5 day period without fever. 2x vaxxed and boosted.

Just got promoted to audit senior, but can’t imagine doing another busy season. I have some forensics internship experience from college and always wanted to pivot to forensics.

If I transfer and have no choice but to work on insurance/claims, would it be better to stay in auditing? Is the insurance/claims work demanding/difficult intellectually wise?

Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.

Of course, management doesn’t have to agree with all or even most of what the associates may say, but some insights could really strengthen the firm, and even make it more profitable.
