Today marks the one month mark since I tested positive.

 

Not gonna lie, this is kind of scary because I feel it lingering. Trying to get back to normal...tested myself at Grouse on Friday and passed the test. But today I'm wiped and it seems to be a lot of fatigue that's not normal for me. I never usually feel tired. I'm also wheezy today (out of the blue) so I know I'm not quite there yet. But be damned...I tried a light weighy workout thoday and won't just buckle to this thing. I know it's likely best to "just rest" but 3.5 weeks of that had me feeling quite depressed so this is an effort to get back to the land of the living. Despite it being a bit of a struggle after the fact (I felt great at Grouse but it's afterward that it seems to remind me it's still there).

 

Our school is also being hard hit right now but our parents are really good and most keep the kids home as long as needed. Not all mind you. It's working it's way through our staff and some do report it being much tougher than expected. 

 

I really feel that people who undermine the severity of this don't understand how it randomly selects people to slam. I happened to be completed depleted/exhausted when I contracted it so that likely factored in. But be careful what you wish for....I'm scared of long term repercussions because I can tell that this isn't going away easily...it's trying to stick around.

I suspect the lingering (COVID) effects also impacted Brandon Sutter.

When I got it around Xmas time, it took until early March to fully get my energy back.  
I felt pretty well fine the whole time, just kinda pooched the whole time.  
About 2 full months for me.  
Hang in there Deb!

So, last night my wife and I thought it might be a good idea to test ourselves even though all the symptoms I have been experiencing are on the Covid site. I'm positive, which is the first time I've been ill for close to three years. This morning is the best I've felt since last Thursday afternoon, but still get coughing spasms, and a bit of a runny nose.

That's still 194 cases per day. 40 Hospitializations per day. 6 Deaths each day averaged.

 

That is not good for late May. Our department got wiped out two weeks ago. I was out for 3 days. Came back after 3. One rep confirmed covid, and another got it one month ago.

I self isolated for 7 days, and two different drug stores were either opening late as they are understaffed, or closed early. Third time I finally got a kit but it was 10 days after the fact. And I didn't see the point in testing. All this and we're moving our office across the street.

 

Stay safe everyone.

The pandemic is definitely still here. It’s encouraging though that there were 52 less hospitalizations and 17 less deaths this week compared to last. I don’t pay any attention to case numbers because no one’s tracking anymore. I hope this downward trend continues and one day hits zero.

Kamloops ranch that refused vaccinated guest but kept deposit now says it will issue $3,200 refund

B.C. Solicitor General Mike Farnworth called the episode involving Equinisity Ranch in Kamloops 'outrageous'

A ranch owner in Kamloops, B.C., has been criticized by the province's solicitor general for refusing to accept a vaccinated international traveller.

 

The Equinisity Ranch in Kamloops, in the province's central Interior, is run by owner Liz Mitten Ryan. She told CBC News she catered almost exclusively to international travellers, including from England, Switzerland and Australia.

 

In a report in The Guardian, published Thursday, a prospective traveller called J.W. York said they had booked a $3,200 retreat (£2,000) with Ryan in May 2020, but the trip was put off due to lockdowns and other pandemic restrictions.

 

According to York, they were told recently they were not welcome at Equinisity anymore because they were fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — and they would not be receiving a refund due to ranch policy.

 

Ryan confirmed that the ranch had a "no vax" policy for patrons, even though international travellers have to be fully vaccinated to enter Canada. The Guardian article quoted her as saying that vaccines were a "bioweapon depopulation tool" that could transfer to animals.

 

The entire episode was called "outrageous" by B.C. Solicitor General Mike Farnworth.

 

"I have asked my ministry, the consumer protection branch, to look into this," he told CBC News.

 

"This is just wrong. Like, you want to subscribe to a wack job conspiracy theory. That's your business. But you don't rip people off like this. It's unethical."

 

Refunds will happen, says owner's husband

 

In a statement, Kevin Ryan — Liz Ryan's husband — said the ranch would eventually send refunds to customers.

 

"For personal reasons for this summer, [Liz] has implemented a policy of non-vaccinated guests only," the statement read. "Not, I stress, realizing any regulations were being broken.

 

"Due to the current public interest in this situation, and the subsequent informed discussions, she now realizes that it is appropriate the deposit, in this case, needs to be returned to comply with said regulation."

 

Ryan told CBC News all deposits "of a similar status" would be returned by the end of the month.

 

On its website, Equinisity says it provides "a unique journey" for patrons to find "true healing" through meditation, horse riding and other activities. Ryan says his wife had been running the establishment for over 15 years.

 

Their pricing guide shows that individual patrons can expect to pay $2,800 for an eight-day retreat, while couples can expect to pay $2,400 each.

 

Before her husband's statement about refunds, Liz Ryan had suggested that any vaccinated traveller sell their booking. She also said her ranch had been shut down for two years, the longest such span of her career, due to border restrictions.

Farnworth told CBC News that Equinisity's stance against vaccinated travellers would give international travellers a bad impression of the province.

 

"It sends a terrible message in terms of tourism here in British Columbia and Canada," he said. "Because, let's face it, this person that took this trip is now going to tell their friend ... 'Why would you want to come here?'"

 

Farnworth said his staff would be investigating if the ranch had received any COVID relief funding, and that the ranch would not be eligible in any case, given the requirements placed on vaccinated travellers.

 

"I don't think it's particularly good business practice," he said.

Let me see if I've got this straight: your business is catered to the international traveller market, one needs to be fully vaccinated in order to enter Canada as an international visitor, and you not only implement a "no vax" policy - but you also tell your vaccinated prospective guests to get bent if they're vaccinated.

 

That last assertion on the article that Mike Farnworth made is a bit of an understatement (to put it mildly), if this is how they want to run their ranch.  :rolleyes:

 

Not to mention, they didn't specify which vaccines they were against.  I'm assuming they've been vaccinated for diptheria/tetanus, measles, or other diseases that form part of the childhood vaccination cycle.  zOMG, they'll depopulate their horses if they continue to house them at the ranch, since they themselves are also walking bioweapons!!  :picard:

And, of course they make sure their horses are all fully vaccinated.  What is wrong with these “antivaxxers”?  

Get the hell out of Canada.  Stupid loser people.  Disgustingly stupid.

I was trying to find the logic in their decision to shoot themselves in the head with their direction regarding their primary market; but then I felt my IQ drop trying to understand their logic and decided it wasn't worth it.  :picard:
