Heads up family. We are duly screwn. Get your meds filled and stock up.

In the Flathead Valley, almost 80% of the COVID tests I have done on people in the last two days were positive. The youngest was 2 MONTHS OLD.

I just finished a two-day-old burrito and a beer and Iím going to bed.

Love you all.

A 2-day-old burrito and a beer cannot possibly be any sign of a good night's sleep!

4. Yeah I stocked up a couple days ago. But I suspect we'll all be getting it.

Iím vaxxed and boosted. Hopefully I wonít get too sick. Iíll continue to take precautions but I just read the omicron is the fasted spreading virus in history.

11. I've read that as well

and if true then it means it beats out measles for the top of the heap. If it's more communicable than measles, than yeah, pretty much everybody is going to get it.

Have I mentioned lately how much I really despise the Dunning Kruger portion of our population?

7. Thanks for the heads up.

I'll look into investing in some Ivermectin stock tomorrow.

I have a physician's appointment for next Monday morning so I'll be taking care a number of health related tasks and issues within the next week.

12. We are parked up at our place

with more than a couple of months of food, plenty of firewood and water. With any luck at all we will not leave or interact with anyone for the duration.

18. I have to take care of some paperwork and the last small load of stuff.

We are stocked up also.

When I get back I will isolate myself from everyone for awhile.

I will spend the time fishing or whatever.

13. Come on now, there is a ton of light right around the corner.

Sure the next month will be rough but Omicron is going to be the way out of the pandemic. It has taken over and is mild for the vaxxed and will immunize the world.

We are right around the corner from normal. Each year we will get our Covid vaccinations just like we do for the flu and enjoy life again.

16. they have said the virus would do this

for about a year now, and it's doing what they (CDC) said. The name for this is "endemic."

I am staying in, too, because the stories I hear from friends about friends who are vaxxed and boosted are that people are still getting sick. Not hospital sick, but sick. This is in NJ.

I have been wanting to clean out my freezer, which is packed full of good stuff to make wonderful soups and other recipes, so this will help me accomplish that goal.

By then the Omicron will have run its course and I'll have an empty freezer.

15. The very, very vast majority of those who get COVID survive.

The death rate is incredibly small. And even Long Covid just isn't all that common. So no, we are not screwn. Not at all.

20. My granddaughter has long COVID. She's FIVE. COVID doesn't have to kill you

To fuck your life. Long COVID absolutely IS common. I see it every day in many of my coworkers.

22. An article I read in the Guardian said 10-30% get long Covid.

We donít know the true number if I understand correctly. Anecdotally, I know 3 people who had Covid in spring of 2020 and never got their previous level of fitness back.

17. One of our RNs posted today she had tested 170 folks at the testing

Center and 60% positive. She said many were our own employees Our county has a high vaccination rate. Hoping that vax rate means we will all still be here when omicron is finished ripping through the country.

19. Once again...

being Vaxxed and boosted will NOT prevent infection.

It will only prevent serious illness and death.

Omicron is only slightly less virulent than Delta for those who are unvaccinated and who also never have had Sars-Cov-2 exposure (to any variant).

For the class of people are are unvaccinated and who have never had Covid, Omicron is only 11% less likely to cause severe illness.

This is the conclusion of many studies of South Africa and the UK.

The good news is that for the vaccinated and boosted, you may not even have symptoms, or if you have symptoms it will be like a cold (some reports say a really bad cold).

I had Covid 14 months ago... and it kicked my ass hard (long Covid symptoms that lasted almost 4 months, constant runny nose, shortness of breath, fatigue). Now I am vaxxed and boosted... but I expect to catch Omicron in the next few weeks, even as I isolate and always wear a mask in public.

21. I know that. I understand it doesn't mean I 100% won't get it.

Staff currently out thought they just had a mild cold. Current practice is any symptoms: get tested. And that is how they are finding it. Staff is vaccinated except for a few. I hope everyone else is okay too.

23. In Southeastern CT, testing sites are reaching capacity, turning people away minutes after opening.

CT's test positivity rate yesterday was almost 24% but of the seven people I know who have covid right now, only one was even able to get tested. The others begged friends for home tests or just know they have it because of symptoms and a household member testing positive.

I hope you come through this without catching it, Maru. And thank you for everything you do.
