Quote from: ranyart on Jul 29, 2021, 02:05 PMAt this point, at least here in the good old USA, I don't think there's any will to go back to lockdown/shutdown mode, and I'm not seeing venues canceling any shows so it would probably be up to the individual bands to cancel them and I have little doubt that would cost bands some $$$ which they aren't going to be willing to let go of. Combine that with the fact that musicians and fans are all chomping at the bit for some live in person fun and my money is on full steam ahead and damn the torpedoes for shows in general.
Quote from: walterfredo on Aug 12, 2021, 12:54 PMI need a shirt that reads "I went to see phish in Nashville and all I got was covid" Seriously though, fully vax'd since May, tested positive on Tuesday. That said, this was all on me, I made poor choices and am dealing with the consequences of them. Felt totally safe at the shows, and while obviously don't know know the where/whens of it all, acted a fool and fell in line with my surroundings...went into numerous packed bars unmasked (in the south!) over the course of nearly a week. Moving forward I will still go to shows, but will curtail my pre/post show activities until numbers are better. The numbers are insane right now. Cases in FL are at the highest level at any point EVER! That is whack. Be safe out there fans!I also feel like the vax is doing it's thing as I would classify by symptoms (so far) as fairly mild compared to what others have experienced.

We have not heard a final answer from the administration on what the rules are going to be, but in any case she's pretty much expecting to be wearing a mask all the time again while she is indoors. Our county just moved into the substantial spread zone so in theory the school board should require masks for everyone, so we'll see which direction they pick.
Quote from: ranyart on Aug 18, 2021, 02:31 PMJust got this in my work email (company name removed to protect the innocent). The survey had three choices (yes/no/not saying) and I would love to know what other questions were asked for the no/not people (if any)..."Within the last few days, three of our long-standing customers have notified us that they are mandating proof of vaccination before any individual, including their employees and employees of business partners such as our company, will be allowed to arrive on site and enter their facilities.While this mandate does not come as a complete surprise, given the new world order that COVID has spawned, it does present a series of complex and competing priorities that we need to navigate for the collective good of our company, our people, and our customers.First and foremost, we respect your individual right regarding personal health decisions on whether or not you choose to get vaccinated. There are multiple arguments, some factual and some not so much, being contested on both sides of this issue. What we can say with certainty is that our company will not insert itself into what you decide as your best course of action regarding your confidential, personal health decision(s). However, our corporate stance does intersect with your personal health decision when we have customers mandating proof of vaccination before they will allow our employees (you) into their facilities to perform on site delivery of our services.Which brings me to the crux of the issue. All of us have a role to fulfill as we operate our company with our collective goal to expertly provide great service to our customers. You've probably heard me say it before, but without our customers, we don't collect the critical revenue that we use to pay our people's salaries, bonuses and health coverage. The bottom line is that without our customers, we don't have a business.Therefore, our first order of priority will be to honor the requirements of our customers, which means we need to report to them the vaccination status of our people assigned to perform on site work at their facilities.In order to understand the percentage of our employee base that would be able to comply with this type of request, our Health Services group is confidentially tracking voluntarily provided vaccination status of our employees. We are requesting you to complete this survey regarding your vaccination status, which will remain confidential."
