Posts are a pretty rare thing these days, but I thought I’d make this topic to talk about the very real situation in the world right now of Covid 19. How are you holding up hopefully Safely? How are things in your city/town?

I haven’t worked since the middle of March. We shut down indefinitely but I told my boss because I’m on medication to suppress my immune system that I’m not returning to work until the situation is better even if we open up again. She said she understood and that shouldn’t be an issue with HR. As it stands, right now I am getting paid for this month so I can’t complain too Much. I haven’t stepped outside my apartment in two weeks now.

I’m so far pretty impressed with how my head of state, Trudeau, is handling this. He implemented a plan so that the government will pay 75% of employees salaries for small, medium and big businesses during this pandemic and I’m hoping my employer is eligible for this. It’s concerning because I can only assume we will be racking up a lot of national debt but.. it’s better than not surviving right now

Part of me wants to just link the "how long have we been on this rock, help me to recollect" scene from the lighthouse. Which is only half-joking. I think we shuttered around when you did, and it then kept just rolling on forward and now is just on "further notice".

I attempted to deal with the state government's website on sunday.

As for how the town is. Further notice seems to be the watchword. We aren't under full on quarantine, it's more the social distancing/avoid if possible.

I was just about to ask if they'd put up the shielding

Looks like currently..in a hopeful universe..laid off due to the Chinese bioweapon slamming the company.

edit: Unlike the last time, there's a valid reason aside from "they fucked up and went out of business" so...I wasn't fired and was told maybe they would bring people back. It's not my fault.

Why do you feel the need to proclaim its not your fault? A lot of people are losing work because of covid. I haven’t worked since March and I’m not sure when I’m going to work again Laughing Out Loud

I got a part time gig at a clothing store and I work once a week but get paid for more.

Stuck inside with my family the rest of the time, though.

So it’s now August and much of the world is trying to force a sense of normalcy and focus on the economy. Covid isn’t going anywhere until there’s a viable vaccine, so I guess that’s not surprising.

How are all of you holding up?

I’m have a pretty bad year. My dad has pancreatic cancer and probably won’t last to the end of the year. Honestly, how much time he has left isn’t as important as him being as comfortable as he can. He recently stopped chemotherapy because as he said, “no quality of life.”

My girlfriend also broke up with me for a bunch of reasons that don’t really make sense, another covid casualty I think. It is what it is, I honestly only really felt bad for one day and then focused on picking myself back up. I feel bad for saying it but I think I’m doing better without her. So thanks? 😂

I also haven’t worked since March, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be laid off come October. It sucks but it’s the best outcome for me. I’m immunocompromised and it’s not safe for me to deal with people in public spaces right now. So hopefully they just lay me off nice and easy and don’t ask me to come back.

Feels like I’m losing everything this year, but I have to keep it in perspective. Once you say that you lose something you didn’t even consider 😂

Still laid off from primary work. But last week was busier than I had expected.

As for the other thing, I've...expressed everything one can in that situation.

How so? Is canada or that province doing something weird?

Anyways, not fired or anything and back to where I was before the bioweapon..which I probably mentioned. Around here it seems like things are kinda going back to relative normalcy.

But...now corporate fucked up and everybody's hours are screwy. Also we're understaffed.

So, I walked in only to find out "Oh I'm not even supposed to be here today". It's one of those deals yeah.

canada is ok, alberta is Durrrr...

they've since backpedaled and took back what they were planning to do, but our government declared victory on covid and it was time for life to go back to normal and planned to do away with testing, tracing and isolating

protests happened daily by doctors and nurses, detractors pointed out that delta is ripping apart populations in the southern states and children are getting ill too

they backpedaled on friday saying they werent wrong but developments in the US since then made them reconsider, even though the situation in the south was already getting out of hand in places like texas and florida when they made their first announcemen

Yeah that's exactly how we are. We're back to red alert level where I live. ...Yeah I know that's not the technical term.

I have to deal with the DMV after a doctor tuesday, not totally covid related but not looking forward to either...mostly the former.

That was fun, I got penalized for being too cautious with a test. Apparently the state does not penalize drunk drivers the way any rational person would think they do.

Then I saw some bitch in a fucking BMW suv practically blocking the middle of the street and sllllowwwly moving into a parking spot, almost jumping the curb or hitting a sign.

...But I'm the asshole for thinking the penalty was more severe for a drunk driver refusing a breathalyzer. Maybe this is why there's so many assholes, commonwealth. I stopped counting the illegal ass u-turns that happen on main heavy traffic streets. Cops only show up if, god forbid, a parking meter is one second over. Then everybody swarms.

....I'm fine it's all fine, I'm calm now.
