People have just gone through the worst times of their lives. People will not come back to work I believe until the end of the summer. They are taking this time to realize their worth to a employer . If anything the last year and a half has done is make people think about how they were being treated and what they believe they are worth. To think that the extra unemployment is the main reason no one is coming back is wrong. Is some people enjoying the money before they have to find something? Sure. But I believe, the main reason is people aren’t going to be treated like crap for 8 bucks a hour anymore. Not after them seeing they were considered “ front line workers”. Want employees? Pay more. My buddy with the sandwich shop had the same problem. Couldn’t get any help. He up the hourly salary by 2 bucks, offered bonus if the stated 3 months.. then 6 months. Filled the spots in a week and a half.I agree. But I am not sure now though...... I have a friend who is a manager of 12 hair salons and cannot hire anyone (or I should say the one's she had) because they say they are still afraid to come back or taking care of mom still. Being serious. Still on state unemployment and still receiving fed benefit. And cannot hire anyone even with bonuses.
Just saying, nothing surprises me with people anymore.
Tell me about it.the American definition is pretty similar to the UK definition, but like I said, we are so used to seeing mass death after seeing a mass casualty event that I think the words get conflated.
When about people it is more often a death. Though it can be used more broadlyike a casualty of covid referring to some policy changes that occurred because of it. Casualty I've seen in insurance to be broad as well. So when I first read I hoped it was the broader sense since they stated cause of removal or how the patient was doing was not known.What does “casualty” mean to you? The definitions I’m seeing in American dictionaries are consistent with my British understanding of the term, except that we also use it to refer to ER (though A&E, short for Accident and Emergency, is more common).
We live smack dab in the middle of the areas the report is taking about. And with only days to go before school... complete silence from school officials (or just about anyone for that matter) and no guidance or restrictions in sight.I'm not vouching for the accuracy of these projections:
As Florida continues to see a surge in COVID-19 cases from the delta variant, the latest forecast from the Mayo Clinic offers up a sobering look at what is likely coming for the state just one day before school starts.www.abcactionnews.com
"Statewide, the Mayo Clinic forecast tool said Florida will be reporting a seven-day rolling average of 49,398 cases of COVID-19 per day by August 9, a 132% increase from the current numbers."
If this is anything close to accurate, this may be the worst wave of the entire pandemic for Florida. And while hospitalization and death rates would likely be much lower than in the past, they are already dealing with a hospitalization rate akin to some of the past waves. With only 48% of the state fully vaxed, there could still be significant hospitalization and death.
I'm crossing my fingers that this projection is overly pessimistic.
This is exactly what we saw in the uk - starting in our north west in local areas such as blackburn and bolton then spreading outwards in time. Then heading to the Midlands and north east The north east got it badly mainly due to them not being hit as hard in previous waves.
Christ your admission and hospitalisation figures are higher than the uk as a whole - we have 5500 in hospital with covid right now with 800 admission yesterday (but actually total in hospital only risen by 10 so being matched almost by discharges)
Indeed - it is bad out there. This graph shows it best. I am in Fraser Health, the former leader of all Covid Cases in BC during the peaks. Now we are relatively low, and Interior is just... going off.
It seems this is what the counties will do here in Florida. Any town property masks must be worn. Since the town owns those properties they are allowed to do that.Miami-Dade County is requiring masks to be worn by employees and visitors inside all county facilities — vaccinated or not — and residents are strongly recommended to wear masks in large crowds or enclosed spaces, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced.www.local10.com
The cvs nearby has a drive theough . Two lanes for drive through only the inner one can be used for covid testing ( But it can be used for regular Rx too).I was picking up a prescription at a CVS near my house earlier today and all of the COVID vaccination waiting chairs were full. I haven't seen that in a while.
