    I don’t disagree. It was just a noticeable difference and I flew four times between last April and July.

    Bummer. It's a legit illness but glad you found treatment and know what it is. Vibes on this christmas day; I'm sure you and your wife will make a full recovery soon.

    Unfortunately, businesses haven’t gotten the message. Work uniforms are all still cloth masks around here.

    Hopefully you'll both make a quick recovery.

    Early on the medical folks were wearing cloth and surgical masks over their N95s to make them last longer. Maybe you could wear a good mask under the uniform cloth mask?

    A lot of the double masking was because of those n95s with the exhale valve...

    True... Resources were scarce s they had to use those and make them safer for others around them.

    Seems like about 30% in Crested Butte and Gunnison as well- no local or state mandates and a high vax rate so I guess everyone is just saying fuck it. I'd guess 80% or more down here on the front range.

    Jeffco, Denver, and Boulder have mandates not in place elsewhere in the state. Seems like the predominant reason right?

    Wife and I both vax'd. Both caught covid as well as my kids. I just feel tired and have a runny nose. Tested positive Christmas morning. 0/10 Christmas present.

    This probably belongs in the shit that annoys you thread, but a bunch of straight white men are arguing there about gender pronouns, so I'll just dump this here... It's nearly impossible to get a covid test in my town. When is this country supposed to be great again?

    Probably mostly due to a holiday travel and gatherings demand surge.
    I'm not surprised. It's kinda like trying to find good masks was in spring of 2020 was. I bought 4 when I first saw they were available on Amazon a couple months ago. Had I known that Trump was going to flip on vaccines so the MAGA crowd would suddenly be almost as interested in fighting the pandemic as the rest of us I would have bought more. When it returns to folks just going to work and doing everyday tasks there will probably be plenty of tests and boosters available again.

    Yep. And we're only 20 miles south of Canada, so at the end of the supply chain. But still... we're two years in at this point.

    It is however, very easy to get a shot here right now.

    No problem getting test, home or clinic based, here in Southern California. 90+% mask compliance most places. My wife, thrice vaccinated and always masked, but works with public got the roid. I had to avoid her by staying in Napa, then Mammoth for the week. Life can be tough for some of us during the pandemic �� Fortunately was never very ill, and recovered quickly, but stayed of work 10 days until two negative in-clinic tests.

    Get vaccinated, wear a mask (K95>surgical>cloth>nothing) avoid crowds, and use common sense. This pandemic never had to be as bad as it was/is. The medical advice common from the mainstream public health people is good, and constantly improving, so heed it and ignore the fringe wackos out there. There is a reason they are on the fringe

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    It's only the "fringe" around southern California. The stupid is strong many other parts of 'Murika. Rest of the country is college town sanity surrounded by deep pockets of morons everywhere else. We outnumber them on paper but only safely in urban areas... and most of southern Cal..

    Because it is full of stupid people who listen to other stupid people and they don't bother to make the slightest effort to think for themselves.

    As for the fringe, I was referring to the very, very small number of "experts" like the magnet doctor .

    Probably. Wish we would get some mask and/or Vax mandates but I think the county health director is too tired of the hate mail and threats to do anything anymore

    Wife is sicker than a dog today with a mild fever. Can't get an at home test or PCR test anywhere in town today. She will get a rapid test tomorrow morning from her employer (healthcare) but I can't imagine it will be negative.

    I'm fine so far but definitely nervous. Trying to isolate as much as possible but we have a small house and I was around her a bunch the last two days. Both of us are boosted, hoping I get lucky.

    I posted this before back when covid vaccines first came out - but worth reposting as boosters are being received:

    In a 2002 study young adults were separated into a couple groups - one had their sleep restricted to 4 hours a night and the other could sleep 8.5 hours a night for a week.

    Then they were all given flu shots and then in the following days their antibody levels were measured to see how much of a beneficial response they had to the flu shot.

    The sleep restricted group produced less than 50% of what the well rested group produced.

    Similar studies showed the same consequences with hepatitis A and B vaccines.

    Even if members of the sleep restricted group then had normal sleeps following their flu shot they never went on to produce the same level of antibodies.

    So make sure you rest up before and immediately after your booster if you can.

    - from the book “Why We Sleep” by Matthew Walker
