Wow, that is sure about time.  You must be in a much lower age group than me.  I've been double vaccinated since July 17 down here in Tassie.

Pfizer.

That's why it was taking so long.

It's still a few weeks away and I have to go into the city - but I'll take my mum and we'll have lunch.

Well I'm knocking on the door of the next age group and figured I'd hit 50 before I got an appointment.

I finished mine (Astra Zeneca) exactly a week before my 73rd birthday.  So I'm a few age groups ahead of you.

Well it's been awhile since I posted anything regarding my workplace. Many of you may remember that we had a Covid outbreak at the nursing home I work at last year and that we lost many residents. We also had many staff test positive, myself included. Since then all has been quite........

Slowly over the months, after vaccinations were completed on residents and staff, we began trying to return to somewhat normal. Visitations opened up to more people (though they go through screening and have to wear masks), residents could leave the building for outings, church services resumed, the barber/hairstylist could come in, congregate activities and dining resumed. For the staff we continue to be screened and wear masks and eyewear (although for 3 weeks in July we were able to ditch the eyewear, didn't last). Starting in May, vaccinated staff no longer had to be tested monthly.

Last week things changed, because of rising cases/positivity rates our in our state. One day it was recommended that non-vaccinated staff be tested weekly instead of monthly, then the next day it recommended they be tested twice a week. My employer had already made the decision prior to these changes to test all staff at least monthly beginning Sept 17th. 

Well today I got a text from a co-worker, the nursing home's Facebook page announced this..................

Dear Family and Friends,

All staff were tested on Friday 09-17-21. One staff member tested positive. We completed rapid tests on all residents today and all residents were negative for Covid-19. We are following recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This includes restricting all visitation except compassionate caregivers and essential caregivers at this time. Our congregate dining and activities are paused at this time as well.

We will conduct testing again for all staff and residents on Tuesday.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this time.

Not sure how long this will last, for sure at least 2 weeks. It will also mean twice a week testing for all residents and staff. 

Please keep all of us in your prayers. I've seen and felt what this virus can do. Please get vaccinated, mask up and stay safe!!

Crazy. I don't think some people will ever get the message. And you can include my idiot brother and his family in that group. They say that God will take care of them. I guess he never stopped to think that maybe God played some part in getting the vaccines so quickly.

Kentucky is now one of the nation's hotspots. Very frustrating because Gov. Beshear worked so hard last year to keep our numbers down and did a good job. But the state legislature pass laws this past spring that took those powers away from the governor. Now if we want something to happen the state legislature has to meet and make those decisions. About 2 weeks ago the governor finally call an emergency session because things were getting so bad. What did the legislature do? They voted that each local area can make the call on how to handle Covid. So you might have one city/county that is doing the right thing but the city/county right down the road isn't. Yeah, that's really going to stop Covid from spreading. And it's not the older generation - most of those got vaccinated. It's the younger generation getting it. 

Honestly, I'm beginning to think this is never going to end.

have a look at this site, it's really interesting graph of pandemics of history and their timeframes.

as our population has increased and our movements, pandemics have become more frequent.

so, as you say, maybe God really is taking care of things for the planet.
