Thanks rahl.  Like I said, I am not worried at all about us.  

We eat a health balanced diet, lots of fruit, vegetables, nuts, whole grains.  I eat a lot of Pacific salmon:  fresh caught, smoked, canned, pickled. And other fish, including not so long ago, raw Tuna (man is that expensive!).    We often buy farmed Atlantic salmon and I would encourage others to do the same, especially if you are looking for fresh fish off-season. 

The wife does not like liver, I do.  But I would encourage people on low incomes to eat liver once a month or so.  I did in the past.  

The wife has gone from exercising regularly to taking a walk once every 10 days and putting on a lot of weight, so I am a little worried about her.  Unfortunately diet will not save her, though eating less volume might help a bit.

In passing, there are lots of women in this area who seem to believe they can eat themselves into good health.  Ain't true.  All those women are unhealthy.

We are fine and following professional provincial health expert suggestions to the letter.  Don't worry about us.  Worry about all the folks in our rural town who are tobacco and alcohol addicts and others who avoid exercise.  Worry about the folks in our town who believe the pandemic is a hoax and have no intention of getting vaccinated.  

I learned today having a conversation with a contact tracer that one 32-year old man had legs amputated.  Another person is waiting on a lung transplant.   Hopefully as more people are maimed or die, the 'fake news' gang will start to take this epidemic more seriously.

Stay safe gang!

 First shot was a sore arm. I expect the second one to knock me down for a few days - several friends said the second one was kinda rough.

From what I've read, generally, if you feel really bad after the first shot, you were probably already exposed. If not the first but the second, you probably hadn't been exposed before. YMMV...

We got that in our county last year sometime. It does seem to give a heads-up about what's coming, especially when the tourists are here, since it shows an uptick before the patients get tested. But in general it doesn't give us enough to act on. Just enough to prepare.
 
The university is more of a controlled environment...they monitor each dorm individually. 

 
Ah, that makes sense. The equipment was around $8000 IIRC and testing takes a few days and a few hundred dollars (we have to send it off) but it makes a lot of sense to keep it local and test often and in smaller swaths so the results give actionable information, especially in that sort of community.

we always try to go with the best data we have but there are still variables like lag time before vaccination/infection kicks in and the biggie is probably behavior

i see people here, especially tourists, or people in the touristy areas (bars and beaches) letting it all hang out

probably quarantine fatigue and pent up demand

just keep vaccinating like there's no tomorrow and use common sense i say
