High numbers again. Going up from last week. Several times higher than last year on the same date.

Stay masked, stay inside, stay away from crowded not-well ventilated places.

Another wave is on the horizon.

Omicron is much more damaging because of the vast number of those infected.

Serve your community--play it safe.

Brilliant! Love the sarcasm! So true that some people still think like that, let alone even thought that way.

Good one!

Good news today out of UK about how long Covid is less likely with Omicron.

it’s clearly weakening. No new variants, the vaccines are now readily available and effective at preventing hospitalization and death. It’s pretty much over.

Nobody believes this anymore.

Oh I'm sure many do.

I don't see any reason not to. But I also just don't really care and have never been hysterical about the whole thing like so many JT posters. I just wanted to point out, your assertion that no one believes this anymore is, well, almost definitely not based in reality.

Testing, testing, testing. What for ? It's over, get a life. How many people tested are dying ? People still wearing masks in their cars and walking out on the streets at night. I think they all has been hypnotized.
