    I'm sure it depends where you are. In our district, ~1/3 of kids are in full-remote. So you take the remaing 2/3 and divide that in 2 and there aren't a ton of kids on busses. My daughters bus has 5 kids on it. (And they wear masks, and it's 7-8 minute ride so les than "close contact".)

    Spoiler: they won't! Unfortunate. Maybe as more shots shift to groceries that are used to bein open 7 days a week.

    I work in the specialty chemical industry, so have some familiarity with this. Converting a facility fro chemical manufacture is a non-trivial task. It's not just the money, but it takes a long time. Pharmaceuticals are another level beyond that because of all the GMP protocols in place...

    Right, but that plan doesn't make sense. 5 weeks for immunity after Feb 1 isn't March 1. And they aren't vaccinating all 334,000 teachers/admins/janitors/bus drivers on Feb 1 anyway. That said, my school is in hybrid in spite of cases (4 students at my daughters school positive in the past...

    I suppose it depends on what we mean by "all they can". I don't see this as major capital investment right now, simply because the timeframe for that is too long. what I meant was de-bottlenecking manufacturing processes, making sure staff is adequate for 24/7 operation, possibly repurposing...

    So what are you claiming, that Bezos wanted people not to get vaccinated just to make Trump look bad? I think a more reasonable assumption would be that Amazon waited to find a receptive audience. Tump doesn't seem to have a team put together to where Amazon could even begin to help and Trump...

    The average certainly isn't up there yet, but yesterday was definitely the best vaccination day we've had and in the past week, the rolling average has increased by ~40%. That's all definitely good. Soon, we should be reaching the point where vaccine production is the bottleneck, and certainly...

    Interesting article. https://arstechnica.com/science/2021/01/first-task-for-bidens-cdc-director-fix-everything-trump-broke/?fbclid=IwAR1nT2Z8u9L7haedHDmbu-3daVLazZyjcpaCR4GONHB_Sy9izxWvfl_DMS4

    Yeah! First shot in the arm for my wife this morning (Pfizer) at the basketball arena. She said the whole place smelled like popcorn - maybe they are stealing a page form Disney and using positive scents as a placemaking feature.

    Nice to see that blue line starting to come down.

    Interesting data from Israel: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/19/single-covid-vaccine-dose-in-israel-less-effective-than-we-hoped There are a lot of articles that just quote the headline, but this one at least gives some data (and justifiably draws the conclusion that it's hard to...

    That's pretty good. My state has only 9% of the 80+ population with the first shot and 5% of the >60 population (they don't break out by >65). Though I think Florida started last week with phase 1B (non-first responder/healthcare/LTC) whereas we're just starting today.

    Actually, a friend of mine just volunteered for a county task force. They are working in a call center (hopefully adequately spaced!) and calling seniors to schedule appointments. So they aren't even getting paid.
