Default Gov. Inslee: Most schools unsafe to reopen in Washington state...

Most schools should go online-only and cancel sports, Inslee says.
Published August 5, 2020COVID-19 in WashingtonAssociated Press

SEATTLE - Gov. Jay Inslee said Wednesday that schools in the majority of Washington’s counties should strongly consider online-only learning for students this fall due to COVID-19 and canceling or postponing sports and all other in-person extracurricular activities. Inslee made the announcement with the superintendent of public instruction for Washington and the state’s health officer. Washington officials broke down their school guidelines - which are recommendations, not requirements - into categories for counties deemed high risk, moderate risk and low risk.

You're proving to be absolutely right about parents cooling their jets or ending up with no kids....

They are saying there is a good possibility of yet another 3rd. booster shot and they are also finding people who are fully vaccinated getting the virus and having to be hospilized.

The vaccines were never meant to stop people from getting COVID at all. They are for the purpose of reducing death and serious illness from it.

So far, it's only Pfizer that has the booster. Moderna has applied to work on it but Johnson & Johnson has not. I remember reading somewhere that a mix 'n match strategy would be the most effective so I might wind up getting the Pfizer booster since my original vaccination was with Moderna. I've been fortunate so far. *knock on wood*

I think it's very misleading to bring up the exception without mentioning the rule. Well over 90% of hospitalizations and deaths from COVID are among the unvaccinated. No vaccine, drug, or other medical procedure is 100% effective in 100% of people. It's fine to acknowledge that some vaccinated people have suffered ill effects but it should not be stated without the other information about the vaccines' overall extremely high effectiveness rate.

The last thing we want to do is spread information that will cause people to be hesitant about taking a vaccine and/or booster shot if needed. They have been proven to be overwhelmingly effective. For the few who are vaccinated and do end up hospitalized and/or die- that does not prove or indicate the vaccines are not effective. It means some people's health and bodies cannot withstand the challenges of COVID even when vaccinated. It's COVID that is causing them problems, not the vaccines. The vaccines are just not enough for a small percentage of people.

I got the booster yesterday and my arm is really sore. I went to my pharmacy to make an appointment to get the booster and they were able to squeeze me in because the woman in line ahead of me cancelled her appt.

My arm is sore and my energy is lower than usual. I’ll just take it easy today and tomorrow, if necessary.

I’m back to wearing masks and gloves and I probably won’t see any family for the holidays. Some family members have received the vaccine and some haven’t. I’m just not ready to take chances like that so I’ll just hang out on the lake in the femme cave on my own.

I have had both shots and am only saying what was on the news. No need for people to get defensive. No need to try stating more I won't upset this apple cart any more and will keep my opinions to myself. So sorry.

I am definitely not the one who is being defensive. I’m also not going around posting childish crap about being picked on in another thread right after posting in here. If I were to inadvertently say anything untrue or misleading about the virus and someone pointed it out to me I would take responsibility for what I said. I also don’t claim to be sorry about anything when it’s obvious I am not.

Yesterday, Oregon marked over 4K deaths since the onset of Covid-19 in 2020.

Here is a timeline of Covid-19 fatalities in our state:
Nov. 2020 - over 1K deaths recorded.
Jan 2021 - over 2k (...)
Aug 2021 (just two months ago) - over 3K
October 2021 - another 1K people died, which raises the death toll to over 4K.
Since winter of 2020, Oregon has recorded over 4 thousand deaths from Covid-19. If I recall correctly, the past six months has seen just how brutal the Delta variant is, which has taken the lives of the youngest and frailest of those *not* vaccinated for protection against this dangerous viral infection.

Rico and I hope we can get a booster shot soon. It might be awhile for me, though, because I got the J&J single dose vax. Maybe by the first of the year all vax makers will get their booster shots approved.

-------------------.

We continue to mask up and keep our distance at work or while out in public. Even our Thanksgiving activity with family and family friends will be carefully planned for attendees and we will utilize every tool we can to ensure personal safety for ourselves and everyone. We won't be celebrating Christmas or New Years with others. These twin winter holidays will be just for us, on our own with each other.

---------------.


Please stay safe, everyone.
