    Too bad you and your colleagues couldn't be hired by the public health unit to assist in care homes, or other places where a trained nurse could oversee health care practices and provide training.

    After an eight week plus delay we are in the final review of our end-of-life documents changes. Signing and notary will be accomplished via audio visual.

    Scroll down about half way for the pertinent emergency guidelines.

    What are your thoughts on that program, cody? Is it best to give everyone the same amount, ot would it have been good to disperse funds based on need? I'm assuming the money is taxable income. Is that true?

    The WHO and scientists have said we need to test test test and trace trace trace..... I haven't read ANYTHING about states tracing... have I missed such announcements in the threads as I thought we weren't going to open up until such time... guess I was wrong. (#9,999 on these threads I have been, so par for the course?)

    This is another quirk because definitely we could work where there are shortages of healthcare workers. I receive phone calls and emails offering temporary work at nursing homes and hospitals.

    But, since we are on unpaid furlough our company is paying our health insurance premiums and maintaining our health insurance. If we work somewhere else we lose our health insurance unless we can afford to pay COBRA.

    Health insurance linked to a job can pose problems like this. :(

    Catch-22, for sure.

    I think it is a needed program at this time. I think all people should get the same amount. I do not know if it is taxable income. I have been legally a "non tax paying pauper" since 2010( Not enough taxable income.....Social Security income only). I retired from my own small business on February 10, 2008 at the age of 57......I like my freedom and more money gives you more freedom......moo

    I thought that Dr. Hansen's video that you posted earlier today on how finger oximeters work was interesting and he noted things that can impact the oxygen sensor and therefore the results, such as fingernail polish, length of finger nails, etc.

    Edited to add: He also mentioned the light in the room and how that might affect the reading of the oximeter.

    Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in mid-March, health authorities have been advising against the “mixing of the generations”, to avoid young people contaminating older people with the virus. But now the officials have revised this recommendation.

    According to Daniel Koch, the head of the infectious diseases unit at the Federal Department of Public Health (FOPH), it is no longer necessary to keep the distance between the grandparents and grandchildren.

    The original recommendation was issued “when our learning curve about the transmission of coronavirus was still high”, Koch said in a press conference on Monday afternoon.

    However, it has been revised because “we now know that young children don’t transmit the virus”, he added.

    Trying to get to sleep but wondering how many secrets have died with this virus. How many people have passed away and taken the answers to our crime cases (remember those?!) to their graves? Will any cases get solved because of deathbed confessions or unearthed evidence?

    And now I’ve got that written down and passed on to you lot, I might actually be able to nod off... a problem shared and all that. Answers on a postcard.

    Thank you so much! Yay finally got a confirmation. I was hoping to enter bank information for direct deposit since I’m staying at home, but got a message saying it’s scheduled to be mailed out on May 1.

    Sweet dreams Cagz. So true. I cant help but think how many will also get away with a crime due to the pandemic. So many victims could go missing and not missed by family/Friends for some time.

    Well, duh... I'm now at 10,000 mistakes and errors on these threads. Who knew lol. Never thought to google it and that it was a phrase.

    "to be very worried, upset, or angry about something"
