Default Earthman asked "Covid how are you affected?"

a recent post of mine spurned this thanks Earthman

Eman asked how crapvid has affected my world downunder ? heres my answer shared,, left me wondering about the reality in the rest of world...

im interested to find out how you guys are affected ? one thing id add was business has done it tough, alot of smaller business doors have closed, one florist i heard about simply could not afford to close and pay staff over our lockdown march april last year so they closed the doors forever . we have top airline pilots working in grocery markets ..


Eman ,, its a funny old thing surrounded by a moat , theres not a huge change at the moment,, we had our lock down. allowed out for grocery runs .. lack of traffic i remember was a little creepy and i caught myself speeding in the city hehehe, probably the biggest thing is overseas freight into the country seems to be all over the place, as in some items can appear within days, other goods weeks/months overdue . very few if any masks worn. All incoming travellers are held in isolation for 14 days min -daily news reports on how many "new" cases out those poor souls - no real social distancing ..

so really its almost a pre-covid return to normal

interestingly a recent conversation with a long standing real estate agent said he had received many more inquires from the States than ever before

politically - dont ask ill rant lol !! im sure we feel the same

Thanks for the update
Sounds like you have it better than some us over here

I have never bragged about our isolation a way up here, before, but now I'm thankful for it. We have about 25 sick people in the county and 100 in the local city, so that's it. Most of us wear masks when we go to get mail or groceries. We are in lock down as far as gatherings of people go.
I do feel sorry for small businesses though, they have a hard time.
The first round of vaccines are being given out especially to the elderly and the first responders.
I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Good Luck guys.

As with MM not too many people where I live, masks are mandatory as is social distancing. Our whole family has stayed safe till this past Monday when my 90 year old mother came down with it in an Alberta long term care home.
