From the National Post

Quote
New Brunswick and Newfoundland recently introduced new directives that would allow one household to visit and socialize with another separate household — and no others — in a “bubble” system.

Ontario and Quebec, meanwhile, still advise no contact outside of your own household.

Ontario Minister of Health Christine Elliott said in a press conference Thursday the province was “studying” a bubble option but a decision had not been made.

“We know that’s one of the things that’s most important to people, that they do want to be able to see their friends and family,” Elliott said. “And we are doing a lot of work at the command table in health on this particular issue.”

To be honest, I am very surprised that they haven't changed it !!!  ???

With regards to squid's mom, the BC health officer says:

Quote
With British Columbians getting the go-ahead to expand their social “bubbles,” Henry asked that people continue to keep their social circles small and their visits shorter, and outside where possible. She also advised people to avoid sharing food or drink, and continue to sit apart.

So you and squid's mom should avoid others, and continue to sit apart during your visits.  Stay SAFE !

I get out all the time.  Not sure what the problem is. My spouse and I are always at the beach...  we dig clams...  we go fishing...  the difference is, I'm not doing those things with my buddies and same with her.

I don't socialize with friends nearly as much...   and by not much, I mean nearly never.  I go for walks with a disabled friend, who gets out and is less risk than I am even.  We stay at a social distance as much as possible, but that's not always perfect because she needs help with housework, groceries, etc.  Plus, she's probably at higher risk due to her conditions.  Which is why I have taken very few risks by being around other people and take the necessary precautions.  I've been to the grocery store, and that's it, with all the precautions necessary.

It's the least I can do for my fellow citizens. 

So stop f'kn whining...  the shut downs and precautions in BC have been very minimal compared to many places.  And yet the whining persists.


I feel like I didn't give this dumb comment the attention it deserves.   It seems like some of you genuinely don't understand that isolation has been extremely difficult for others.  "I'm happy, I go dig for clams! Why don't people just go dig for clams and quit whining?"  People are not all the same.  I suppose that some shut-ins and keyboard warriors here haven't been impacted at all by isolation, but for most people that's not the case. Most people have been cut off from things that are important to them.

Personally I couldn't care less about church, but I can understand that for many people it's a big part of their lives and that being cut off from it has been very painful.  People have been cut off from their friends,  from dating and socializing, from their sports activities, their classmates, their weekly bridge game or stitch-and-**** gatherings, their coffee groups, and all kinds of other little things that make life worth living.  The idea that people can just dig for clams and be happy while they're cut off from people and activities that are important in their lives is just ignorant. It demonstrates a disturbing lack of empathy.

For me, the phase two reopening in BC has felt like a weight being lifted off me. I've seen friends I hadn't seen for 2 months. Being able to reconnect with people and just see that they're okay has meant a lot.

We did an allowable gathering of 5 adults last night at our place.  A gay married couple and their spinster buddy who hangs out with them.  It felt really great - and we stayed up until just past 11 pm.

During these last 3 months to of my 3 dogs died. It was tough. I was with them so long. I rescued a dog and it came two days ago. It helps. I find my dogs are the greatest companions helping get through this. A lot of people do. I just hope after Covid 19 they are not a lot of people giving up their dogs. I know some people think I am an **** but like a lot of people on this forum I love dogs and I know for some people animals have been their saving grace through all this ****. Good for the animals whether its a dog, horse, ferret, bird, horse whatever.

Two in three months, that's really tough. We had Labs in our house for over 35 years. Said goodbye to the last one about ten years ago. It's so hard. Our home and lifestyle hasn't been particularly dog friendly since then but we still miss them.
