    Our last 'clean' state border to open is now opening ..... it has been closed to all other states for 7 months.
    (I think Victoria's border may still be closed due to the 2nd wave they had.)
    Strict requirements for entry - G2G paperwork, temperature checks, pop up covid clinics at their airport.


    Perth Airport was filled with hugs, kisses and family reunions today.

    It comes after Western Australia's hard borders were finally eased, seven months after they were cut off from the rest of the nation, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Hundreds of families reunited at Perth Airport — with 11 plane loads of passengers — touching down from across the country.
    They are expecting 1500 arrivals from interstate tomorrow and by weeks end around 4000 will enter the state.

    I’m happy to note that our local natural foods co-op does everything right (10 out of 10), or so my husband tells me. I haven’t gone there since before the pandemic. There is even someone stationed at the door, only letting people in as people leave. I always hated going there because it was so crowded, so at least for now that’s changed.

    Massachusetts prisons to test all inmates, staff for COVID as state sees second surge

    As Massachusetts sees rising rates of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, the state’s Department of Correction has announced that all inmates and staff will go through a round of COVID-19 testing.

    Starting Saturday, the department’s 16 facilities will go into modified operations for two weeks to allow for the testing, according to a statement.

    Inmates will still have access to medication distribution, sick calls, medical appointments, mental health contacts, showers, disinfecting of rooms, telephone use and tier time, the statement said.

    General visitation will be temporarily suspended but attorney visits and releases from custody will continue as scheduled, the department said.



    Massachusetts condo threatens hefty fines if face coverings aren't worn amid coronavirus pandemic
    REVERE, Mass. —

    A flyer urging residents to mask up is posted on the front door of Ocean Gate Tower at the sprawling high-rise complex along Ocean Avenue in Revere.

    The notice warns about stepped-up fines voted by the board of trustees prompted by some residents not wearing masks.


    Residents who commit a first offense will face a $250 fine, followed by fines of $500, $750 and then $1,000 for subsequent violations.

    Residents of nearby buildings in the complex tell us masks are required when you step out of your unit.



    As the pandemic surges, CDC issues increasingly assertive advice | Boston.com

    As the pandemic engulfs the nation, recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been as notable for what they do not say as for what they do. In a turnabout, the agency now is hewing more closely to scientific evidence, often contradicting the positions of the Trump administration.

    In scientific briefs published Tuesday, the CDC described the benefits of masks to wearers, not just to those around them. Agency researchers also urged people to celebrate Thanksgiving only with others in their households or, failing that, to wear a mask with two or more layers.

    Very well summed up!
    My oldest daughter is an oncology nurse in WI. It’s so bad there they have mandated all nurses so work a shift in the ICU/Covid each week.
    She has two little ones, my grandson is only 5 months old. She is terrified that she will bring this home.
    AND, nurses can come from oncology, pediatrics, all with risk of infecting high risk patients.

    EL PASO, Texas --A traveling registered nurse is calling out University Medical Center claiming the hospital is not doing enough to save lives. Her criticism aimed at UMC was mainly directed at doctors, claiming some won't tend to Covid-19 positive patients.

    "This hospitals policy was they only get three rounds of CPR which was only six minutes, this out of all the codes we had, there is not a single patient that made it," Rivers said.

    "If those doctors there would aggressively treat those patients from the beginning a lot more would make it," Rivers said. "The nurse that orientated me had one patient she was called the 'VIP' patient, she was a doctor's wife. And when I say they pulled out all the stops for that woman, it was nothing that they didn't do for that woman and guess what she was the one patient that made it out of that ICU alive."

    "To have the families call you night after night after night for an update, like anything was going to be different was horrific," Rivers said. "To know that the only way that those patients was coming out of that pit was in a body bag, I am not ok from an emotional mental standpoint."

    Traveling nurse says El Paso's Covid-19 crisis is worse than it was New York City - KVIA

    United House of Prayer plans another massive, in-person event | wcnc.com

    “Mecklenburg County Health Director Gibbie Harris is aware of United House of Prayer's planned event for the weekend of November 14 in Newport News, Virginia.

    WCNC Charlotte confirmed the plans with a member of the congregation who did not want to be identified.

    The plan is to have 11 buses carry worshipers to and from Charlotte for the convocation.

    "The reality is, this is just not a good situation," Harris said.”

    However, there is nothing Harris can legally do about it although she has concerns that the mode of transportation and the mass gathering could cause another cluster of COVID-19. “

    *Heads up Virginia*

    “The United House of Prayer For All People on Beatties Ford Road held large, in-person convocations in October. As of Tuesday's update by county health officials, nine COVID deaths and 208 coronavirus cases have been traced back to the gatherings there.

    Numbers keep going up.
    9 Deaths now.

    And nothing can be done to stop it.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I couldn't even make it past the first few without tears. What a beautifully profound exhibit - a true piece of history. It's easy to get caught up in numbers and graphs and stats but to see all these lovely faces, touched in some way by this horrid disease . . . makes it all a little more real.

    This is terrible, must be every hospitals worst nightmare :(

    At least 10 people have been killed and several others seriously injured in a fire at a hospital treating coronavirus patients in Romania, officials say. The blaze broke out in the intensive care unit of the public hospital in the north-eastern city of Piatra Neamt.

    One doctor who tried to rescue patients is said to be in a critical condition after suffering serious burns to most of his body. There are other medical staff who suffered burns.


    The fire was believed to have spread quickly after it was fed oxygen by the supplies used to intubate patients, the health ministry said.

    Some of these are beautiful, all tell a story. I love all the rainbow ones as these were a symbol of hope for us at the beginning. But the one of the newborn baby, unable to touch its mother, made my eyes a bit wet. Thanks for posting them.
