And we wonder why so damned many people are coming down with COVID.

Maybe... I don't know... place a f*cking phone call? It gets there immediately.

Sounds about right. When my coworker had a close contact (her boyfriend), the county didn't contact her until her two week quarantine was over.

I'm isolating as a positive case.  The nurse from the county said that my last day might be the 7th, but that someone else will contact me with the exact date.  Hasn't happened yet.  I probably shouldn't just assume to go back to work on the 8th...

Somebody was legally covering their ass by making sure they had something physical to point at to say "Hey we did *our* part, sue the school district not us!!".

In other news, today Maui announced the widespread release of its anonymous Covid contact tracking app, and it's painful to realize some people need to be told the warning below.

Oops!  You've gotta hate it when you thought your children's school was being responsible during the pandemic, but instead you killed Grandma.

I believe timely redundancy would be a better ass-covering.

Shiat things are so paranoid here in worst Dakota I had to take a 10 dat hiatus from my stroke recovery therapy just because I had a fever one day.

My daughter's exposure notification was like that too. 10 days after the fact. Exposure was from her ex-coworker at her ex-job. Her ex-boss didn't require a negative covid test to come back. So she gave her 2 weeks notice and never went back. She spent the next 2 weeks in quarentine.

I had the same conversation with a daycare owner two or three days ago.  Oh! I started a daycare and had no covid mitigation plan and never asked anyone to wear masks or distance and I have an attached gym.  A kid tested positive today, what do?  Go back in time and strangle yourself with your umbilical cord, it would be a net gain for humanity.

/broke confidentiality and directly reported the daycare owner, fark it.

Did they test for COVID? It can cause strokes and other problems associated with blood clotting.

Gee.

I wonder why the number of cases continues to explode as we continue to... pretty much do absolutely nothing that will significantly reduce the number of cases.

Actually we're doing worse than nothing: We're doing feeble, incoherent half-measures.

You get the disruption and misery of real measures, but none of the benefits because you're not actually stomping it out and there's no light at the end of the tunnel.

"Several parents told FOX 5 if they had known about the exposure, they would likely have changed their holiday plans and made sure their child was in quarantine. "

So they complain that they weren't told and that if only they had known they would have acted differently, but they have ignored all the people that have been very vocal as of late warning not to travel or gather for the holidays because asymptomatic people would spread COVID-19 like wildfire.

How as a species have we survived as long as we have? I work in a small office in Georgia that's open to customers, I keep track of everyone that comes into the office for contact tracing purposes but I also have kept track of their behavior. Last week 50% of the people thru my door either outright didn't wear a mask or had one but couldn't work out the rocket science required to put it over their nose and mouth. This week we are looking at 48% so far.

I may be losing my sanity.

That's my other big concern. I've got a DVT in my right shoulder that I'm taking blood thinners for.  I'm preeeetty paranoid about a stroke or pulmonary embolism.

And people feel safer so more careless because "something" is being done; so they are safe in this mask in this crowd in this building, right?

Could be this is the thinning of the herd action that evolution does every once in a while.  Those who are either unable or unwilling to adapt die.

That's what our schools have done. Both my kids have been quarantined. The day the schools found out, they call the close contacts and told us to not send our kid for X number of days. I mean, it still took a couple of days from initial contact, but they did call as soon as feasible...Totally hosed Thanksgiving, but better safe than sorry.

I know this makes me a bad person, but reading the glowing commentary by the school district spokesmouth about how "timely and efficient" everyone was in getting this notification mailed 11 days late, and likely received 1 day shy of the end of the expected quarantine date...

I wish and hope that something terrible happens to them.  I mean TERRIBLE.  One of those instances where the crime is so heinous, so horrendous, so gut curdling fantastic, that new legislation is written in your name because of it.  If you're ok with parroting garbage like this, you deserve all that comes to you.
