I was just at a bar here in Azores and one of the bartenders sounded like he was coughing his lungs out. I noped the fark outta there as soon as I finished my beer. Thankfully it was outdoor seating. it's one of the more popular spots and if he's working tonight and has covid it'll be a farking super spreader shiat show.

That's literally every farking day on the subways. I don't think masks work when you're hacking up a lung for 30 minutes straight.

By the time they're coughing, they're not nearly as infectious as they were before they were coughing.

Pharmacy policy is to have all those collecting their Paxlovid do so at the drive-thru so as to avoid having a Covid+ patient indoors in close proximity to other pharmacy patients who tend to be acutely or chronically ill, ie, have underlying medical conditions that put them at higher risk.

We had at least 3 awaiting their vax appts, 3 who just got vaxxed, & about 5 pts in line to pick up.

Guy just walked right through the crowd to the drop-off counter saying he was Covid+ & wondering how he could get a test & when his & his wife's Paxlovid would be ready.

Just letting y'all know, it's wild out there.

My employer dropped its mask mandate a little while ago.  All of the millwrights are now out with COVID.  I'm gonna keep working from home for a while longer.

There is no good reason yet for any employer to drop their mask mandates or vax reqs for any employees coming into the workplace. It should lit be integrated into the workplace safety plan. It maintains worker health & reduces productivity lapses. This isn't rocket science.

Precisely. Not to mention keep people apart, avoid close interactions and sanitize regularly! It's honestly disgusting that my home state of California has caved in to Nazis and dropped the masking mandate. This summer there will multiple serious outbreaks, mark my words.

For your own good, please keep wearing a surgical or N95 mask, vaccinate and boost if your health permits, and avoid crowds!

Work dropped their mask mandate a while ago (not like it was very well enforced).  I haven't stopped wearing a mask while in the office - except on the days when I'm here by myself.  Like today.

I'm just glad I got to go to a bunch of concerts and do a bunch of international tourism while those were things.  Nice memories.

I hope that guy who is concerned about fascism in the urban explorer thread doesn't come in here.

Companies that have customers entering the store have trouble with this.  Most people are done and will not wear a mask to go into a store so if the store requires it they go to another store.  Keep losing business like that and your out of business.  There are not enough mask lovers to keep the doors open.
For my retail stores I require masks for employees and still have all other covid precautions like spacing customers and using about 1/2 gallon of alcohol a day.
Sign on the door says wearing a mask is greatly appreciated.  We see about 10% masked.
I held out as long as possible but during the really low cases a few months ago we had a massive drop in customers and had to choose between closing for good or dropping customer masks.
Now we are fighting to get those customers back as we are the crazy mask people.
Luckily my other businesses can support us through this but it sucks to be punished for trying to do the right thing.
