Glad you Unc isn't in one where a serious deadly outbreak happened as many have sadly experienced. It's what gets changed to improve future threat that is of concern to many who have relatives in LTCs. You have no worries? Unc not being in one that has been devastated doesn't mean don't worry. You and I may be in one too soon. Then isn't the time to try and fix a 'broken system'. 

 

I know this is from an old post but I often go back and read old posts to see where we are compared to where we were. We haven't been able to see Uncle Vince since February. Zero visitors and I wouldn't go in there if he were on his death bed. He is now 92, drank, gambled and smoked before he was a teen and was at the Casino everyday and or night 7 days a week until he got ill.  He retired with 35 years service where he occasionally worked. If he worked 10 of those 35 years that's a lot. He was always off sick or injured. He always drove around with 5 grand under his spare tire in the trunk just in case, of what I never understood. He was a wise guy if anyone knows what that means. He's the guy they make movies about. If he has a peaceful passing I know that I would be relieved as he would no longer be just laying there breathing and eating through an IV. What he has is no life whatsoever. We have more compassion for our pets when their quality of life is poor. The front line workers in these nursing homes are over worked and underpaid, when that occurs people slack off their jobs, it's human nature, it must be terrible hating what one does for a living. We are or already have become a country of haves and have nots. The have nots for many reasons make up the majority of Covid-19 cases and deaths around the World. Our minority citizens make up something like 15% of Canadian society and are something like 35% of all Covid cases.

Just learned this morning that my wife's aunt, living in a nursing home has tested positive. Given her advanced age and health, well.... HH

Home safe and very tired , drove straight through, border very busy even at 3:30 am. Didn't even ask about booze, tobacco,  guns.... just advised voluntary self quarantine for 14 days. 

valid question, I know I'm not following protocol staying up here, here's my reasoning- -we have a small fridge, no chest freezer, we can't hoard food -if one of us gets sick, they drive bac

The Ontario "plan" to get kids back to school is so flawed, it's only going to make things worse than they are now. Just a couple of points to ponder...

All the careful planning goes for naught when this happens

This is adding a whole new level of concern with this virus. Long term heart damage in athletes who have had the virus.

Scary stuff there. I am always reading about young people in their 20's and 30's that have recovered from C-19 not coming close to what they could physically do prior to contracting the virus. I know at that age how important it was for me to be and stay in good physical condition which promotes good mental condition. I don't want to even think about experiencing what these kids are post Covid-19. I pray this will end soon as we go into the second year of Covid-19 but fear the worse, Covid-20 or 21.

I haven't been reading this thread up to this point.. until it affects you it probably doesn't seem all that serious unless you know several people who have it.. I have a cousin who's a long-distance truck driver and he recently returned from California and felt very tired for four days.. finally he checked himself into the hospital and within a day he was on a ventilator.. 6 days and counting now.. I should add that he was one of those people who didn't believe it was more than the flu and wouldn't wear a mask. Big time supporter of the current US administration and he would regularly message me that it's all Bull.. apparently some guy in Idaho sneezed in the truck stop bathroom and another was coughing badly.. he figured that's where it came from....
