I could be wrong about this, but don't travelers to the US from some non-visa waiver countries require proof of certain vaccinations?
Yes they do,

Yes they do,

Didn't realize some vaccines are currently limited on supplies like yellow fever vaccine. Is that normal?

At Disney, an elderly Hollywood Studios visitor got into an argument and then was attacked by two strangers from a large family group who weren’t all wearing masks after they took shelter from the rain by the bathrooms near the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office report.

One man punched the senior in the head and then a woman from the family joined in, hitting the victim after he fell on the ground. The man, who was at least 65 years old, was not seriously hurt, and the large family left the park before the sheriff’s office could arrest anyone during the Sept. 17 incident, the report said.


Oh, my country. My country tis of 🤦‍♀️

So this party beat up a guy, back near RoR and it was raining, and I’m sure they didn’t run out of the park, and I’m sure others saw this..etc. How in the world does no one get arrested? How long did it take authorities to get there? I mean we are not talking in the parking lot or even by the front gates, which would still be tough to get away. I don’t understand. On a day it’s not raining, coming from RoR it would still take this body 10 minutes to get back to the front gate. Wow.

The article I read said they did leave the park before they sheriff office was able to arrest anyone. Of course they didn't have to actually be out of the park to avoid arrest, once they walked away from the scene and mixed in with the rest of the crowd it would be hard to find and stop them before they got out of the park.

Well then we need more people to keep a eye on them as they leave. Few years ago during F&W I was sitting in Germany when 3 guys drunk were cursing up a storm. A lady with her 2 young kids asked them to watch their language. I overheard and went over and they told me to go F—- myself. They walked away. I told the lady I’ll follow them and to remember my hat and the direction I’m walking and let someone know that they are drunk. About 5 minutes later a few guards went by me.. had a chat with them.. they were yelling at him also. They escorted them out of the park and the lady made sure you catch up to me and was appreciative.
Don’t need to get involved physically, just get involved so others can enjoy their day.

I'm sure people have gotten used to FL's deaths numbers being backlogged. I don't know how backlogged they still are, but the numbers recorded by actual death date from 7-14 days ago, are starting to feel like they've turned the wrong corner for at this point in FL's typical timeline. They are reaching October levels, and those are more "complete" than these. We can expect these numbers to increase for another week at least.

Indeed. But it was to be expected with the increase in cases, positivity, and hospitalizations...

WHAT.....?

CDC considering shortening coronavirus quarantine period | Fox News

This part is confusing to me from article.

Henry Walke, the agency’s incident manager for COVID-19 response, reportedly told the Wall Street Journal that the new guidelines would also include a test to ensure a person is negative for coronavirus before ending quarantine. He said that once the test is negative, the probability of the person going on to develop the infection “is pretty low.”


I was just talking to someone who's daughter had Covid. I asked if she (daughter) would have to get a vaccine. And she said probably. She said daughter was out of the 3 month bubble and she could get Covid again.

I think this is reacting to a recent study that identifies essentially non-existent live virus shedding after day 9:


That, combined with a negative test for backup, seems to make sense that we could reduce time.
