    Of course it is good news. The cases look like they have peaked for now anyway.

    Another 1.416 million Americans filed new unemployment claims last week

    Another 1.416 million Americans filed for first-time unemployment insurance benefits, up from just over 1.3 million the prior week, to mark the first increase in new claims on a week over week basis since March.

    Here were the main results from the report:
    • Initial jobless claims, week ended July 18: 1.416 million vs. 1.3 million expected and 1.307 million during the prior week

    • Continuing claims, week ended July 11: 16.197 million vs. 17.1 million expected and 17.304 million during the prior week
    New jobless claims topped one million for an 18th straight week, with the pandemic and social distancing measures driving stubbornly high levels of joblessness since mid-March.

    The total number of new claims filed since the week ended March 20 topped 52 million.

    I remember the Villages being talked about on the threads way back (few months ago lol) before the SHTF there.

    I’m going to find out. I know that my client who had it was given a nebulizer to take home and was given fever reducer.

    My FIL went to the hospital and got tested but they sent him home. Don’t get me wrong. He is sick. Had trouble breathing. Trouble talking on the phone.

    But compared to my client who had it, it seems like it was nothing. My client was very ill. Said he’s never felt anything close to it. Like he was drowning. And he was bedridden for a long time. Like I said earlier he called to make sure I wasn’t dead because he felt like if I got it, with my asthma, forget it.

    It’s bizarre how it’s hit or miss.

    I forgot something super important! My FIL has type O blood! I will see if I can find out the blood type of the rest of them. (Spouse has type O too).

    I started off making sauerkraut and now I’ve started making kimchi...been eating it incessantly for a few weeks now - maybe my body is subconsciously trying to protect itself!

    Virginia’s largest school insurer says worker’s compensation is unlikely for teachers who catch COVID-19

    Virginia’s largest insurer for local school divisions had a clear message for administrators on Monday: Don’t worry about COVID-related worker’s compensation claims from school employees.

    “The burden of proof to determine that’s where you contracted the disease is going to be tough to do,” said Lee Brannon, the senior school specialist for VACORP, during an online summit for the Coalition of Small and Rural Schools of Virginia. As public schools weigh their options for reopening in the fall, Brannon said he’s received questions from “a lot of people” about what would happen if a teacher — or any other school employee — filed for worker’s compensation after contracting COVID-19 on the job.

    “You know, have you been quarantined inside your home and the only thing you did was get in your car and drive to the school and drive home each and every day?” Brannon continued. “You did not stop at a gas station, you didn’t get groceries?”

    For school employees who do return to work, there are likely to be few protections if they contract the virus, said Mike Beste, a worker’s compensation attorney in Richmond. While most claims involve accidents or injuries, Virginia law does include a category called “occupational disease,” which offers benefits for conditions that can be specifically linked to certain lines of work.

    Yup. That seems to be how my FIL probably got it. His daughter went out on a date. (She’s in her 20’s). Developed strep throat a couple days after the date. Then her dad got sick. He got tested. She hasn’t yet.

    It’s super hard to control teens and young adults. I think about myself in my early 20’s. I don’t think I would’ve stayed home. I lived for hanging out.

    Yep. This has been an issue for healthcare workers (and I assume other essentials) since day one

    That’s very scary. It is unfathomable how this disease can make some feel they’re getting better or only have mild symptoms and then -bam.

    I don’t understand how a 25 year old dies suddenly from this but a woman in her 60’s on the transplant list, with an immune disorder, sails through (one of my spouse’s aunts).

    I don’t get it. It’s scary.

    Because the correct protocol would be to try to get tested and quarantine for two weeks, and tell all of their contacts to tell all of their contacts, etc. People who don't see the virus as an existential threat aren't going to do that. So they lie/deny about potential exposure.

    At the famous waterfalls on the U.S.-Canadian border, Canadian ferries are limited to just six passengers per boat, out of a 700 person capacity. But on the U.S. side, the ferries are operating at 50% capacity, according to Maid of the Mist boat tours.

    Maid of the Mist's website said it was following the guidance of New York State public health officials. The boats contain markers to keep visitors spaced out, and face coverings are compulsory, among other safety changes, it said.

    Mory DiMaurizio, general manager and vice president of Canada’s Hornblower Niagara Cruises, said the limits placed on its business by the Ontario provincial government were “disappointing” and that it was “frustrating” to see the American boats relatively full.

    “However we’ve made lemonade out of lemons,” DiMaurizio said, referring to a new VIP cruise the company has created (from the Canadian side) - a near-empty boat, plus a meal and funicular ride included with the ticket. Health precautions include temperature checks and mandatory masks. The popularity of the C$69.95 ($52.00) per person cruise has “actually surprised us,” DiMaurizio said.
