I believe that when this is over, the total "social behavior" is going to be quite different than what we were used to before COVID appeared!

Most likely some good, some not so good!

Never had covid or know of anyone who has it, life has been quiet in the "Atlantic bubble", life hasn't really changed here since the pandemic except masks in stores, the most cases we had in one day was 80 back last May, since then we often go days without a case. Been thankful for living here.

I was thinking that too Chuck, I believe we will see it in the new generation of kids more than anything, since they are still developing social skills and what not, I figure it would mess with their ability to "read" people, since they get no cues when chatting to people with a mask on, they just see a mask and eyes, no smiles etc. just my .2

The masks can go away now. Where I live, a lot of people have embraced the "anonymity" of the whole mask thing. The social distancing in stores is fine with me!
 I'm tired of the nonsensical BS. Example: My wife has to have an outpatient procedure in May. Hospital tells her she needs a COVID test 7 days before her procedure!!!  She told them she was fully vaccinated and showed proof. Still had to schedule it. huh-smiley huh-smiley huh-smiley If it was an issue, how many opportunities would she have in 7 days to contract it?? That makes no sense in any part of this pandemic! Hosptial did call a couple days later and told her they had changed their policy and the test was no longer necessary.
  AZ has lifted any "mandatory" restrictions. Some national chains, especially resturants, still have their broad spectrum, one-size-fits-everywhere policies in place. Most of the fast food chain's dining rooms are still closed or on limited hours (like viruses only spread certain hours of the day!) I'd be fine going to my local diner, walking in without a mask and sitting near other unmasked people, talking to my unmasked waitress but sometimes I need fast food and can't go through the drive-thru with my trailer!

Well, I have it......AGAIN!!!!
 Fully vaccinated since Feburary 2021. I haven't been taking any other precautions.
  So far, this bout has been about 10-20% of my March 2020 run-in with it. I've been completely down for 2 days instead of 10 and already on the mend enough to feel like working again. 
   So I have it, my wife has a mild case, our son (unvaccinated) has it. Another young man that lives with us is on his 3rd time having it, is vaccinated and has hardly any symptoms. One young lady in our household tested positive while the other young lady (an elementary school teacher) is the only one so far to test negative and have no symptoms.
  I had 6 friends from the mid-west here last week to help us build 2 cabins and one of them tested positive today which is the reason we got tested. Those guys stayed in our campers, ate, showered in our house. Me and the boys worked 9-10 hours a day with them and my wife did all the cooking and cleaning up after meals. The 2 young ladies had limited, but not non-existant, contact with them.

My wife and I have been vaccinated, but have not had the virus.  Our best friends were vaccinated the same day as we were, and got the virus from an overnight visit with their daughter and grandson.  Grandson became sick overnight and they left that morning.  Too late.

The initial sickness was moderate.  3 weeks later the husband has long haul covid.  On oxygen, steroids, has fatigue.  Both had underlying health problems.

This is going to be a long haul for all of us, we all will be infected sooner or later.  It is a matter of will you be vaccinated or will you gut it  out?  You risk dancing with the grim reaper if you are old.  Does the vaccine grant you a pass? No.  It grants you a better chance.

took 8 months but the wife did get smell and taste back finally which helped ease the depression of ... losing smell and taste.  

i do think we had it go through the house before it officially landed in the US.  i was driving semi up and down east coast at the time and those bigrig fuel handles and showers and toilets have every ick on them known to man.  truckers are from all over the world now.

Been lucky here because case numbers are low. Fully vaccinated.

I've probably never had an ordinary cold for at least 7 years. I don't want any bug of any kind, thank you very much. None of them bring great pleasure. ;D

As discussed on the previous thread, I caught Covid Aug 7, 2021 at a family wedding. Fully vaccinated with Pfizer, and the last of the 2 shots was Jan 19, 2021. (Quite some time ago!).

I had mild-moderate cold symptoms.  No fever, but a runny nose and a dry cough.  Was able to do my daily 4-5 mile walks.  I received the monoclonal antibodies on the 5th day of my symptoms (doctor prescribed).  That evening, I felt a bit chilled and went to bed early.  Symptoms were completely gone 2-3 days later.  I did not feel like I truly needed the MABís as my symptoms were improving before the infusion.  I blame the increase in symptoms the night of the infusion on the antibody infusion and not Covid. Yet, I think, given how this thing can react in some people, it may have been a wise decision.

So I am now 3 1/2 weeks after my exposure and subsequent infection.  I have no loss of taste or smell, and no lingering symptoms, so I feel fortunate.  People who get the MABís are supposed to wait 3 months before receiving any vaccine, but those recommendations may change.  I will follow the science as best I can and decide that when the time comes.

I need a negative PCR to get into Canada.  Havenít seen my cabin since October 2019.  The problem isÖ.no one can predict how long a PCR remains positive after Covid.  I have had one positive antigen (rapid) test and one positive PCR test (15 days after exposure).  A positive PCR does not mean that you are currently infectious.  It means that the test, which is very sensitive, is picking up protein remnants of the virus in your nasopharynx.

The testing is now sensitive enough that it can detect ONE case in a cities waste water. So all NZ cities are regularly tested to check the virus hasn't got lose there somehow. Obviously cities with cases already in isolation come up positive, which serves as a sort of calibration, If you know Auckland has 200 active cases, you would expect a strong positive in the waste water. You then go to Hamilton, and don't see any positives in the water, you can assume that city is still virus free. 


There was a positive test in nearby New Plymouth, but repeat tests over several more days came back negative. So it was put down to a patient who had recently recovered in quarantine, and safely returned home (or visited). But if samples had kept showing positive, then it would have been a flag to start tracking down a new infection.  


So the tests can pick up recently recovered cases as DrB suggests. A recovered person can still be shedding particles of inert virus protein that the tests can pick up. They aren't infectious as it's only fragments of the virus, but it's the specific pieces the test is checking for, and the test can't tell if that's attached to a whole virus or not.

I would say mostly
Bad (except spreading germs)and more anti social ness. Nothing good can come from having cloths over peoples faces everywhere you go, dehumanizing. I mean I already know how to interact, so I can read other cues for if someone may be laughing or mad under their mask, not so much for kids as they haven’t even learned to be social yet, and probably will have trouble reading people as they age, or maybe not, just a thought.

Students are back in classes.  We have completed about a month of school.  Very few are wearing masks as it is optional.  I wear one in the classroom even though I have had the JJ vaccine.  I know about a dozen folks who have died from C-19 and a bunch who have had it, some mild, some very severe.  We will see how this plays out but I do not see it as a huge inconvenience to wear a mask if it may potentially prevent someone from having a bad C-19 experience.  Outside of the class I shed the mask.  As of yet I have not had it but two of our four ag teachers have contracted it in the past six weeks.  My middle daughter (she works with us) and I have avoided it so far.  We may just be antisocial enough to give us a little buffer.

I have a vaccinated cousin who has worked as a C-19 nurse since this began who has been hospitalized for the past three weeks.  She is having a rough time.  Hopefully she is finally on the recovery side of it.  She is 52 years old.  Another cousin, in his 60's, died two weeks ago due to C-19.  It is bad here now.

If your not vaccinated itís best to keep your distance from people that are vaccinated. Why do you think more people are getting infected now.  Spike S Protein is what infects you from people vaccinated.

the non-vaxed people are catching the virus from others with the disease.  the spike protein alone will not cause the disease.  the spike is what attaches the virus to a cell to infect, and is why the monoclonal antibodies are against that to slow the spread within a persons body.  vaccinated people can still catch the disease, but are less contagious and less ill.  I am working and have seen prob. 20 cases in the past 8 hours.  all are un vaccinated.

If the spike protein coming from the vaccinated people makes you sick, why do they not get even sicker.

In the local outbreak, 84% of the patients are not vaccinated, 12% have had one shot. and 4% are fully vaccinated. None of the folks in hospital are fully vaccinated.

to my knowledge, I have not had it.  I am tired sometimes but I worked 8 nights in a row (12 to 14 hours each) last month.  It took me 2 days to recover, but I am 60 y/o.   :)

My wife was in the hospital for four days after a surgery and chose not to get vaccinated because she knew from microbiology that she could shed the virus to me thatís not vaccinated. Thatís what she claims 😂. She also told her neurologist when he asked why she didnít get the shot. She said that itís on a emergency basis and they donít know enough about the long term effects. How can you have a vaccine for a virus that constantly changes ?

All hospitalizations here (4 right now) are not 'fully' vaccinated. One is ICU. Blaming the vaccinated as harbingers is total BS. ;D Here we have 75% vaccination and less common infection rate than a cold virus in the good old days. Areas in other parts of the world with low vaccination, high infections and alarming hospitalizations is the result. Look after yourself and increase your odds, or don't bother and enjoy the suffering if your number is up. The NYT surveyed a few folks in hospital who had it bad and could still talk, and many wished they had been vaccinated. Others stuck to their guns, one who was 54 years old didn't make it. Dead 9 days later. Not that there couldn't have been 100 others who survived. You know how the news is the last few years, leave out some of the facts to score points. But I think there is enough science around vaccines for what? 100 years ? that makes the case for getting the shot. I don't expect a mass die off from new types of vaccines, pretty much nil, around the 99% confidence level, so to speak. ;D
