"Unvaccinated travellers barred from planes and trains as of today"

What about automobiles?

I was supposed to go to Montreal last fall but the pandemic ended that plan. I'm vaccinated but who wants to travel when so many people are acting like children over this issue and masks? I'll just wait until this ends, kills us all or the virus turns into something like a cold.

If it makes you feel better, the numbers here are better than most.

Who gives a shiat. I'm already barred from entering Canada for another few years.

A good first step.  Can we ban them from obtaining food and oxygen next?

Fine, I'll just go to British Columbia instead.

They don't get unemployment benefits (considered terminated with cause) if they refuse vaccination at their workplaces, so we're headed in that direction already.

Unvaccinated travellers over the age of 12 won't be able to board a plane or passenger train in Canada beginning today, and a negative COVID-19 test will no longer serve as a substitute for most people.

The theme of plague rats never giving a shiat about anyone or anything unless it directly impacts them is finally going to work to  our advantage.

The oxygen part will take care of itself while they're drowning on their own bodily fluids.

If we're very lucky, Omicron is the variant that turns this into something like a cold. Initial reports seem to indicate this, but the actions of governments in response make me suspect that it's not as mild as claimed.

I hope you're right.  But if we were lucky we wouldn't be here today.  Faucci's presser today went over some of what they know.   He said they didn't have enough cases to draw any meaningful conclusions, but the early indicators were it was similar to OG covid.

I'm cautiously optimistic but it's also worth noting that the average age of these African children is a bit younger than it is in the North America and Europe so that needs to be taken into consideration too.

It's been mostly mild in a very young South African population in the first few weeks after it was isolated, there's no guarantee that their experience will translate well to the rest of the world.
 
2021-11-30 4:39:51 PM  
Good.  The same should be done in the US - you want to get on a plane, train, bus, or any other federally regulated (or funded) mode of transportation - you have to be fully vaccinated.

Any state or municipality that objects can opt-out by also opting out of all federal funding for transportation in their state/municipality.

Here's hoping your right.  We could use some variant like this that overtakes the old variants like delta did.  It's early, I figure we'll know in a few weeks whether its a meh or a farking disaster.

Was hoping for this as well. The definition of "mild" seems to vary from the snifoos to 'not on a ventilator'.

If only. No, there's only enough zambonis for one per rink master, a position you have to earn through a best-of-17 poutine-wrestling contest.

I think it's still in the unknown stage, so better safe than sorry. I'd far rather they require masks and other restrictions and then find out they're not needed than not do anything and then wish they had.

they can still drive.
If you don't stop it'll only take you like 40 hours to get to toronto from here, easy peasy.
I guess some folks here need to go to newfie land some times and that's merely 70 hours.

That's WAY less trouble than getting the shot and having a sore arm and all so you can't really fault their decision making processes.

Why would anybody think they should be allowed to travel to another country without being vaccinated? It is how this whole thing got started. People who were infected were able to just fly everywhere and spread this thing. I certainly would not want to travel with an unvaccinated person.

As a Brit our vaccination record is on a smartphone app that can be scanned and checked. AFAIK you can request a paper document.

/The NHS app is quite useful. You can check your medical history, see the notes made after examinations, tests etc.

That would be awesome if we could do that here, but we'd have DJT-appointed judges shiatting all over it like the OSHA ETS.

Might want to get that checked out, fatal insomnia is a thing and 36 hours is unnaturally long.
