Just substitute New Zealand for South Central.
Too bad this isn't how all of us do it.

Dwarves have an automatic +4 to saves vs. COVID due to their racial CON bonus.

If I multiclass into Ranger, does that still apply?  What about a prestige class that has Ranger-like abilities?

New Zealand is roughly half as iron fisty as anti-maskers pretend the USA is, but they've managed to keep the virus under control.

Rangers do not need vaccines. They have Kingsfoil.

we're actually all anxiously awaiting daily case updates because delta is spreading in our largest city.

Also the vaccine should've been mandated for everybody without medical exemptions months ago.

Are the Gundabad Orcs infected with COVID? They don't like wearing masks. At least not the type that covers the nose and mouth.

Probably not. Tourism related businesses in this country are all well and truly farked for the most part.

All that are bold do not twitter
Not all those that mask will get sick
The old that are smart with not wither
Deep thinkers don't fear the stick

From the vaccine immunity awakens
A solution from science we send
Renewed public health will soon beckon
And the pandemic shall be made to end

So far I've heard of no unions opposing the mandate and any that do can go fark themselves. And the govt has already won one case where some antivaxxer dipshiats tried to take them to court for their losing their jobs for refusing a vaccine.

And yet, your whole country has fewer cases in the whole outbreak than my state, with 1/12 the population and 6 times the land area, has in 1 day.

i dunno I'm beginning to sense that sensibleness is wearing off after 18 months of watching the world outside burn and us going "but why can't we do fun stuff like destroy our own society too?"

also why would we wear shoes?

A universal vaccine mandate/enforce vaccination would be pretty hard to get through bills of rights and all that stuff.

But I agree with MANY more mandates. No hospo, no events, no gyms etc etc. Only essential services without it.

It isnt like there are a significant number of people who cant take the vacc. I am completely serious when I say that actual research indicates less than 100 people in the whole of NZ who are medically unsuited to take the pfizer vacc. I thought that was a typo but it is correct. Almost every person with a medical exemption or claiming one is bullshiat.

meh if they can drug test me for jobs where my actions outside of work won't have any impact on my job, i can't see why there should be an issue with all employment contracts going forward saying "no vaccine? fark off then". And i hope they do.

Wrt going barefoot, that's all fun and games in the countryside.  I'm sure the feeling of warm sheep poo between your toes is delightful!   But I'm assuming NZ must have a 'no glass bottles or small sharp objects' policy for all urban areas.

I know it was snark... but.....

Unions in NZ negotiate for the Collective, so can't bargain or argue for things that would impact the individual outside what is based in law.  i.e. law says you must wear a hard hat, you wear a hard hat.  If one person disagrees with it, then it's not a union is it?  And that person is free to leave said union.  They'll argue for better pay, more time off, etc but that's a collective argument, and as a union member you take it.... or you don't and stop paying your dues.

Nice to see a common sense approach. Well done New Zealand.
I worked in health care and was vacced up the wahoo as a condition of employment. Didn't mind. Seems reasonable considering the down side. Wonder if there is the same hesitation when cops or firefighters are told the need to get their tetanus booster or they are off the health plan.

my mother's partner is a firefighter, and they've been told at work they're not allowed to talk about vaccines or vaccinations because it could be seen by some as bullying, which means some antivaxxer dipshiat in the fire service has already been whinging to management about being "bullied" for not being an antivaxxer moron, but for the most part most of them it seems are on their way to being vaccinated. Don't know what the deal is with cops, I assume they'll be included in the mandate, but I don't associate with cops so I don't know.
