    Went to a wedding reception thing (low key, not formal) last night and saw lots of friends/aquaintences I used to MTB with but haven’t seen in 2 years b/c of the pandemic and life getting crazy. It was good to see them again and they are still folks I really like as good people, but damn, it was disappointing to learn how many are anti-vax. Just saying some blatantly false and/or alarmist stuff. Had one of them say he doesn’t want to risk getting the vax… While then telling the story of how he overshot a 40’ jump guineapigging it which resulted in the broken ankle and boot he was wearing. These are folks with little regard for their wellbeing on a bike and long, gnarly injury histories to prove it, but saying the vaccine risk is too much for them? Similarly, dudes there who put $100 of mystery powder up their nose most weekends also saying they are unvaxxed because they are scared of possible side effects.

    Just… disappointing. Seems more like its more sticking with a “rebeliousness” or “punk” pattern than an actual thought out position.

    And with the delta variant surging and the long, rainy PNW fall/winter/spring approaching in a few months i fear that, while society won’t shut down again, we will start having to “opt-out” of social events, meetups, even professional events due to everything being indoors and so many unvaccinated people acting normal. Outdoor events, like the reception at an outdoor brewery beer garden or a golf tournament feel safe… but I feel uneasy about indoor events, and i KNOW my wife will veto them.

    We had a vaccinated employee test positive last week. Our recent in office days had overlapped.

    Plus my wife had been flying for work.

    So we just both did the Ellume home test.

    Damn slick technology: Load app, instruction video, bluetooth connection to analyzer, step by step instructions on app - nose swab, dip in magic liquid, five drops of that into analyzer, 15 minutes for (negative) results. Email & text of results.

    A positive result would instantly update national statistics by zip code.

    Impressed.

    No one knows how magnets works, so the best we can say is: possibly.

    so are you advocating for unmasked surgeons?
    if so whats the benefit?
    this is a current topic for me as i recently had my supraspinatus & infraspinatus reattached
    the pre surgery cleaning and prep I was required to do was a little over the top, IMO, compared to what was requested of me 2 years ago for my ACL replacement

    Can't they just scan the chip in your arm from the shot?

    I also had a co-worker tell me his wife tested positive. Sounds like a fairly moderate case, with fever, cough and sore throat. But that was last week. Hopefully that was the worst of it. He's self quarantining now. Luckily wasn't exposed to him. I hope he decides to get the shot now. He's in a high risk category too. Trying not to browbeat my anti-vax co-workers but this kind of stuff just makes me SMH.

    As I mentioned the positive colleague was vaccinated. To be allowed back into any of our offices we are required to show proof of vaccination.

    Now to go back into that office if you'd been in there the previous 14 days before his positive test... requires proof of a negative.

    I’m not advocating unmasked scrub personnel. A mask is for our protection and they protect the patient if you were to cough or sneeze directly in the wound.

    As far as the prep for your shoulder surgery, the bacteria in your armpit is nasty, more so than what you find around your knee.
