Erie County mask mandate for everyone began on Monday.

The Erie County infection rate is among the highest in the state at 9.5 currently, but fluctuates between 9 and 10.

Hospitals are at full capacity or nearly full - before the holidays even begin.

All people in any indoor place must wear a mask to try to bring down the infection rate. If it does not work, then curfews and shutdowns might be next.

Buffalo is a blue city, but there are red suburbs and rural areas around it. Contributing to the rising infection rate is the fact that, after the vaccines came out and the CDC lifted its mask guidelines, people abandoned masks and social distancing completely. At the same time, theaters, concerts, football games, restaurants, spas, and beauty parlors all opened up.

Within weeks, the delta variant arrived, but almost nobody returned to masks and social distancing. So now it is mandatory.

Got my Moderna booster on Wednesday morning.

This is the first time since then that I feel well enough to post anything, or to DO anything besides just lying around. I had a milder reaction to the initial shots. This time, my arm, shoulder, and back muscles really, really ached. Felt tired, sluggish, and blah. Did nothing but sleep and watch movies since a few hours after the shot. No fever, but achiness, fatigue, and sore throat did me in.

I had a Moderna arm rash about a week after the second shot so I'll be watching for it this time, too.

Looking for a forum to discuss current non fiction

Maybe it exists on DU and I'm just not finding it. There is this forum on fiction and a non fiction forum for American history, but what about current (not historical) non fiction?
