    50-64 does not appear to be the predominant demographic ; that still appears to be elderly...
    hospitalizations in those 18-49 is not-insignificant. it's actually greater than hospitalizations in the 50 - 64 group --
    ( childhood hospitalizations are not insignificant )

    good luck.

    Please get your boosters. skiJ

    It's plastered all over the news that boosters are authorized now for 5-11, but zero details on how to get them or when you will be able to get them.

    Most kids I see getting off the bus keep their masks on walking home. Some don't but nobody cares. Kids get it.

    The two schools my kids are at, elementary and middle in Seattle, are still mostly all masking. Never really stopped when they dropped the mandate. I think a lot of families were keeping it up to ensure they could go on their spring break. Then ba. 2 happened and it would have been foolish to stop then so here we are. We've managed to dodge it so far and my wife works in a hospital so hoping to keep that trend going.

    Very little masking here. I still do when I go in stores. And thing#3 has AAU basketball finishing this weekend.

    Masks in stores, etc is maybe 1 in 10 here, but per my friends with kids, it's still a solid majority at schools in the city. Out in the county, it's zero for both. 100% political.

    I realize that isn’t common across the US

    I guess they’ve just accepted it as a thing to deal with — it’s a major part of their lives (but not imposing, if that makes any sense); they don’t know different; it just is

    My niece’s prom last Friday in the Bay Area was a super spreader event. 70 kids so far tested positive. School is nearly completely maskless. This week, there were kids that attended that prom with friends are already home sick, they’re symptomatic but have not tested positive on an antigen test (yet), they believe that their symptoms are allergies or a cold, they’re going to school maskless, and they’re following the school’s guidance.

    Most kids are wearing them at my son’s small HS, but it’s the opposite at the big HS across road. My twins small middle school, in the midst of an outbreak, most kids were not at school after the camping trip, the school strongly suggested that kids wear masks at school, and only about half of those that came to school were masked.

    Cases are ... "only" up 40% here this week. Here we are, unless it's double or triple nobody bats an eye anymore. A few more folks have put the masks back on inside stores and venues, but hardly noticeable.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    They didn’t mask at my HSer’s prom, either. This is the small HS where most (almost all) the kids and staff wear masks every day in class.

    So interesting teen social stuff going on.

    The Bay Area prom of my niece, she spent about 20 minutes goofing off with friends in an enclosed photo booth set-up. Something like 7 or 8 friends. She’s the only one of that crew that hasn’t tested positive yet.

    Lady coughing out a lung in LAX on Saturday. Wife started to feel weird Monday, coughing and sick Tuesday. Her self test showed 2 lines (positive) today. FML as we are in Amsterdam due to take the train to Paris tomorrow. What to do other than keep her in the hotel room?

    Did she wear a good mask or raw dog the airport and flight? And you've probably got it also by now, maybe asymptomatic, but in a hotel with her so exposed.

    He didn’t go so I dunno
    (Given the proclivity at school, I’d guess yes, but then again maybe not per bodywhomper)

    We were masked up a lot. I will take a test tomorrow to see if I am asymptomatic. I was always sick the day after my Moderna boasted, where as she wasn't with her Pfizer, so maybe I am more immune? Neither have tempetures but she is congested, and coughing a little. She has been sleeping all day.

    I don't know what the criteria in Europe are but if risk factors then see about Paxlovid or monoclonals. Good luck.

    It takes 5 days for the pharmacy to receive paxlovid, so that is a little late. She just woke up after sleeping all day and said she feels much better than this morning. Hopefully a little better tomorrow and so on.

    So how accurate are the in home Covid-19 self tests? Specfically the iHealth Antigen Rapid Test??

    A member of the house was tested at a Hospital and was admitted for treatment. I was coughing some Sunday and yesterday and a bit of sinus pressure (which I've had from time to time over the years even before covid came on the scene), but no other symptoms - no fever, no lose of taste, no problems breathing. I did the test yesterday and it showed positive. Nobody else in the house had positive, but still everyone the house is Quarantining and will all be doing another testing round tomorrow. I cancelled all work on sites Yesterday and today and will only be doing remote or alone work. Feeling even much better even this afternoon also.



    I regularly get asked the standard questions - cough, any one you been in contact with in the last 10 days with Covid, Travel outside the country, Entering some locations. Get my temperature taken regularly some places and usually it is lower than 98....

    So 5 days after the symptoms go away and 2 negative tests is safe? Or longer??

    Pretty sure the last update recommendations was to isolate 5 days after positive but OK to go out MASKED after 5 days if you're feeling OK. Take the mask off after day 10.. unless still symptomatic, fever, etc..
