My boss called out Monday and got a rapid covid test Tuesday. It came back negative Tuesday at noon, so he showed up at 12:30 and has been working since. He is coughing and sounds really congested. He claims it's just allergies, but someone in our office has an autoimmune disease and I feel for her. I just talked with him about other peoples fears of him being sick and he said, "people need to understand people get colds. I got tested and I'm negative". I asked him if he'd get tested again and he laughed. I really hope he's not infected. I already had it, so I'm not too worried about myself, but I feel for the others in my office.
every medical professional will tell you that this year, even if you think it's just a cold, you stay home until you are symptom free for 24 hours.
Seems like common courtesy with a bad cold anyways
Found out this morning I’ve been exposed. Going to get tested now. My wife is pregnant. Fuck.
sending good vibes your way. my old lady is 28 weeks pregnant and this shit is stressful as fuck.
Just saw in the local news that five more people in the county were reported this week as having died of Covid, bringing the total to 18. All five were at a nursing home/care facility, bringing the death toll from that one facility to nine - half the county total. This particular facility reported no positive cases as of three weeks ago, and now has 46 patient cases and 15 staff cases and nine deaths. Even with pretty stringent protocols in a county with low case numbers, it still got in and ravaged the vulnerable
MARKESAN, Wis. (WBAY) - The superintendent of the Markesan School District has passed away after a lengthy battle with COVID-19.
Duane Bark, who was also the district’s athletic director, passed away Wednesday night, according to the Trailways Conference social media accounts.
The posts say Bark battled the virus for three months.
Family members and the community adopted the term “Barkstrong” to support Duane Bark.
“Duane left an impact on me and many others and I will miss him greatly,” reads a tweet from the Trailways Conference commissioner. “Please pray for his family, friends, colleagues, and everyone in Hornet Nation.”
People responded to the posts by sharing messages of support for the Bark family.
The Daily Dodge reports Bark was 61-years-old.
In September, Action 2 News reported that Markesan Public Schools were taking a “fall break” due to an outbreak of COVID-19 cases. Students were asked to quarantine at that time.
The school district asked parents to be more vigilant screening their children for symptoms and keeping them home if they’re sick.
Yeah, but I bet the stonks they left behind for their heirs were worth a lot more than they would have been otherwise.
In Watsonville? lol
that’s their response? never should have been in school in the first place.
Staying home with colds needs to be normalized. We shouldn’t put people at risk because someone needs us in a seat.
The only good thing that's come of COVID for me personally is I may never have to work in an office again.
For the first time, we see 3,000+ reported in a day for Wisconsin!
This is equivalent to 11,600 cases per day in Florida if you adjust for population. Or 16,000 cases per day in Texas adjusting for population as well.
Taking those numbers, we'd be higher than Texas' record day and on par to almost worse than Florida during its peak this summer.
Minnesota reported ~1,200 new cases with a much lower positive rate, Illinois at 3K+ new
Winter is going to be a bloodbath
Nuke the state
TAYLOR COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Dead mink at a farm in Northwestern Wisconsin tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection. That’s the virus that causes COVID-19 in humans.
The National Veterinary Services Laboratories confirmed the infection. It’s the first among Wisconsin’s mink population.
The NVSL confirmed the results after testing was conducted by the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Lab.
All animals on the farm have been quarantined. No animal products can leave the farm at this time.
“As this is an active investigation, no information about the farm or parties involved will be released,” reads a statement from Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection.
This is not the first mink infection in the United States. Mink at a farm in Utah tested positive in August.
“There is currently no evidence that animals, including mink, play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2 to humans. However, people infected with the virus can spread it to mink and other animals,” reads a statement from DATCP.
DATCP, the DNR, Taylor County Health Department, Department of Health Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Department of Agriculture are assisting the farm. They’re helping with carcass disposal, disinfecting animals areas, and protecting human and animal health.
Antimaskers. Lily Sullivan is great
YOU KILLED MINK, YOU SONOFABITCH!!!
This photo made me sad.
Over the last 20 years the mink farms have been the target of several animal rights groups. There have been quite a few incidents of people getting into the farms and trying to open the cages t set them free.
There's some good data in there, but the framing is god awful imo
and I hate any reference to the supposed experience of a COVID infected child when there is still so much unknown about longer term impacts.
School in my district has not had any major outbreaks in 2 months and school started at the height of the outbreak in ga. I had come to the conclusion that schools may not be major spreaders as some early studies indicated but good to see some follow up
lmao they couldn’t find someone other than an economist to write this?
That was my first thought. That being said like Redav mentioned, schools have been open a while in Georgia now and there were some outbreaks but we've still seen a steady decline in the rolling 7-day average of cases. However most aren't completely in-person only.
I didn't read the article but lol at getting an economist to do the soft "let's open things back up"
to be fair she’s just reporting the data but “schools aren’t superspreaders” is quite the declaration at this stage. especially for someone that’s not an epidemiologist or public health official. the Atlantic can do better
regarding the data... i can only speak for SC but there are large discrepancies between what districts are reporting and what is actually happening. our state department of Ed has an online dashboard where you can see the # cases for particular schools. some teacher friends are pretty vocal about those numbers being way off
My two thoughts are...
I think there's a big difference between young kids <10 and middle and highschool. Highschoolers are basically adults physically and I would guess can propel droplets further and from a greater height.
I have wondered if younger kids are getting it but aren't being tested. You would still think there'd be community spread if this were happening though as they spread it to adults
do we know what led to the blowup in Wisconsin? iirc they were one of the first to open in-person instruction
She's an economics professor.
So my daughter's pre-school (which we didn't send her to) where I am on the reopening committee just had their first major "issue". A teacher came to school the day after her husband was tested and experienced symptoms (Thursday husband tested, she came to school on Friday). He was "locked in the basement". On the daily questionaire in the morning she answered "no" to "is anyone in your household experiencing symptoms of COVID-19". She and her son were then tested on Saturday and both tested positive with results reported on Wednesday. That teacher has been terminated for breaking Covid protocol. Now that class is closed until 10/19. So far, all students and the assistant teacher have tested negative. There are very strict mask guidelines at the school so hopefully that saves the day.
WI GOP, specifically Voss, Fitzgerald, Tiffany, and Swearengen. Schools are a side product to business being as usual in most places in WI. As always, fuck Ron Johnson too.
holy shit! good on the admin there but anecdotes like these are why in-person school shouldn’t even be on the table. lotta knuckleheads out there
Wouldn’t this more so show that wearing masks and social distancing works? In NY they are having the kids wear masks all day and limiting class sizes. So far no issues at least in the school district my cousins attend.
This is the first week all kids are back in school. They had been doing hybrid 50/50 set up.
My elementary aged daughter comes home yesterday and tells me they had a lockdown drill. That all the girls took cover in a closet. 15 girls in a closed door storage room for 20 min.
Like, excuse me?
is everyone dead yet?
Damn that sounds rough.. and fucking reckless.
Same in my district but we require masks and only have 50% of students per day with other protocols. About 75%+ of the cases in my wife’s district are from the school. (No mask, no protocol)
Just 215k+ humans in America. Did you expect everyone to die? That’s not how these things work. Oh and it’s not over. Still counting.
20 million plus died of all causes in 2019... that would be a 1 percent cause of death in america if the same number held for 2020
I assume this is a joke given that you’re off by an order of magnitude but I don’t get it
What % of people need to die for a cause of death to be a big fucking deal?
Imagine typing this and not questioning whether the number makes sense
check your math
more than a typical amount of death in order to close the economy down
its pretty simple
Yes you are.
Are you posting in the third person?
still kicking but hopefully you’re next
