    I ordered from here yesterday: https://shop.projectn95.org/ Saw them mentioned on NPR, nonprofit making sure that the shit they send is legit.

    Everyone else, if Omicron comes, consider wearing a N95.

    Point taken.

    Coworker tested positive last week, worked next to her all day long. Luckily I was wearing an N95. Also triple boosted, and all that jazz. Still gotta test today before going to visit the in-laws today.

    I saw that cases in Summit went from almost 0 to 40 then to 160 in just three days, don't know where it is now but guessing that it is higher. It'll just have to run its course, everyone will get it.

    I wonder where the Summit cases are. The county data guy is on PTO for a week so we won't know. Guess it doesn't matter.

    Omicron is here and assume everyone is infected. No missle-toe parties yo! Avoid the ganjola and skip the apres bar!

    Without his ensemble, DMB would be absolutely terrible. With it, itís pretty good.
    Dude the DM live at Luther College album is like one of the best live albums ever. Just him and Tim Reynolds killing it. Dave is a supremely talented musician.

    Anyway, tested positive at home this morning. Merry Christmas!!

    Have had a cold for the last 3 days. Nothing serious so far, just typical annoying throat-clearing and nose-blowing. Bit of a headache, but then again I usually have one of those on Christmas morning so....

    It's everywhere. I know so many people with symptoms or positive results. At this point, I'd say testing is meaningless. Either you're going to go out and spread/catch it or you're gonna stay home.

    Had cold symptoms on the 23rd - tested negative. 24th - negative. 25th - positive.

    My sister is pretty sure my niece has omicron. They’re all vaxxed, niece was scheduled to get boosted two days after she tested positive. She just had cold like symptoms, fever for about 24 hrs. Now my sister is waiting to see if they all get sick since they may be been around her before they knew. It’ll be interesting if they do. It’s been a week, and no one else is showing symptoms yet. My sister in BIL had Pfizer, niece and one nephew moderna, the other nephew J&J. Lots of their friends are testing positive with breakthrough cases, some of them the second time around. They live in Austin.

    FWIW i got a head/chest cold about 2 weeks after I fully recovered from my delta breakthrough, 5 months post vax, in early november. That was worse than the breakthrough. Best of luck

    If you don't want Omicron, a booster is the best single intervention, but not proof and we must all come to terms with that reality as we have for flu and other RVs. Lots and lots of people are going to get Omicron, and for the vast vast majority it will be mild/moderate if they were vaccinated or previously infected. But that can still take you out of work. The trick is not to have staff out all at once. If the number of people at a workplace who are out with COVID doubles every two days, that can create problems FAST.

    One hot case can infect the whole breakroom at the office (or hospital). That's the only reason I'm N95 all the time right now. Community prevalence is off the charts high and we can't lose any more staff and my family is around.

    We detected Omicron in the community based solely on epidemiological trends: case doubling time of 2 days, record case rates, unbelievable spikes in positivity. We didn't get genetic confirmation for nearly 2 weeks.
    Thank you for this important post, Summit -

    To All - Please recognize the potential implication of some of the information in this post -
    cases double every two days
    ( in a week, for each case on dayOne, there can be eight ( and 8x ) in a week... )

    If I was not already boostered, I would be asking my PCP for a booster @ Four months. ! ( waning immunity )
    ( at sixty years, with a History of respiratory disease, and a lack of fitness ((gotta) work on that - again )


    hang in there
    ( January could be interesting ) -

    Please ! get a booster. tj

    I am uncertain why some would chose the option to get sick over vaxed. Had my boaster a few days ago and feel fine after the initial 36 hours of icky feelings. I sure hope we can allow the boasted people get on with their life's someday. All these lock downs because of the non faxed are BS. Not vaxed? Go live under a rock. Vaxed? Carry on is my New Years wish.

    I hadn't been to keystone in who knows how long up until yesterday and was super bummed to find myself on a gondola. Cold, no airflow, small space, no masks required. Felt like the most covid dangerous thing I've done since the start of things.

    I’ve ordered n95 from McMaster Carr this month. Not cheap, but genuine and ship quickly. I wouldnt trust amazon anymore with anything that can’t be externally verified for authenticity

    I'm double vaxed and was scheduled to get boosted this week. Stared having chest tightness and a dry cough on the 19th, which is exactly how my asthma manifests. Abbott home test is negative on the 19th. 20th progressed to full on severe headache, dry cough, chest and body pains, loss of taste/smell and exhaustion and crazy night sweats; re home test on the 21st positive. 22nd see my primary care provider, PCR test confirms positive and she gets me an order for Monoclonal Antibodies that evening. Rough night but by the 24th I feel much better from the covid symptoms but I'm back on Asthma meds I haven't been on in a long time. I never had a fever. Today Mrs Snapt, thrice vaccinated is now miserable with the same symptoms. Fucking rona.

    WTF? You'd think Colorado would be a bit smarter than that. In any event the Summit chair is faster than the gondola anyway.

    Flew to Texas yesterday and the majority of the masks worn were of some variation on medical grade, seemed like people are getting that message at least. Fingers crossed we donít pick up the Rona down here and have to stay longer at the in laws

    People behave on the plane (mostly) because they know they'll end up on the no fly list if they don't. Once you're out of the airport everywhere else in 'Murika except parts of Austin mask use will be minimal. Report back with the current beta please. But, others I know from that part of the country... and the non college towns in NC are pretty careless/stupid about reasonable precautions..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
