Just a PSA, if you see a stranger wearing a mask in public, you do not need to remind them they don’t have to wear a mask. We know. And we’re still masking. The reasons why may be different but we all know we are no longer required by the state to do so, ok? So you can hush now.

unfortunately, I'm afraid what's gonna happen is that, if you continue wearing a mask when most people around you have stopped, the cognitive dissonance you cause for them re: whether the pandemic is truly over or not is going to turn into anger (directed at you) right quick

We don’t need any more commentators agonizing over why people are still (!!) wearing masks. It’s to avoid getting sick. Even if I’m 99.9% sure I’ll survive (not everyone is!), maybe I don’t wanna get sick? Or make others sick? Not wanting to get sick is actually very normal!

I say this seriously and it is not a contested statement: the new CDC guidance is predicated on the assumption that you are *entirely okay* with catching Covid and passing it on to others. If you are NOT okay with that, you’re just a footnote in the new guidance.

Dropping in-flight masking even as we enter the second decade of x-raying our shoes and putting shampoo in tiny bottles would be just a perfect metaphor for everything wrong with American policymaking

just a glimpse into how my life has changed since getting covid: the chair I now use to shower. lifting my arms above my shoulders while standing is so strenuous I nearly pass out which is dangerous since I live alone. this at least makes it so I can get thru a shower

“I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify," Joni Mitchell wrote. "Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives. I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.” bit.ly/3ub1Dkk

#NeilYoung almost died of polio as a kid. The vaccine didn’t exist when he was born. The illness affected his life for years. He doesn’t want others to similarly suffer due to misinformation. Media is missing that detail when discussing his protest of Spotify’s irresponsibility.

That’s also more than the end of March 2020. This wave is still incredibly dangerous, and we have not yet seen deaths peak.

"Omicron's mild. Let it rip." One month later: "Why isn't my trash getting picked up? Where's the produce at the grocery store? Why did the clinic cancel my biopsy appt? Why hasn't my kid's teacher come back to school? I demand [cough] service!"

You long for crowded bars full theaters sweaty dancehalls and noisy restaurants but the normal you miss that you ache for is not a physical location it was the peace of mind you had when you believed your society could manage a pandemic that is a normal to which you cannot return

But why Laura, if they knew it was nonsense, & their only aim was to terrify, the question has to be WHY, for what reason & why was almost every gov’t the world over, regardless of their politics doing the same?

Only positive side effect of Covid?
"What's the point of the vaccine if you still get #COVID19?" Well, I had it once before the vaccine and was sick for 2 months, ended up in the ER with partially collapsed lungs, was left with asthma. I had it once post-vaxx, and it was a mild flu. Was feeling fine after a week.

We could have ended COVID before it became a pandemic by just taking some simple measures - masks, tests, contact tracing doing and some local lockdowns back in early 2020. We could have ended it before Omicron by lifting patents and distributing vaccines throughout the world

The coronavirus API documentation, specifically, is the gold standard by which all API docs should be assessed. It’s clear! It generates URLs you can paste into your code! It regards helping people get to the info as a point, rather than seeing the API as an exam you have to pass
Post detailsSome personal news (a 🧵): On 4 October 2021, I resigned from my role as the Deputy Head of Software Engineering for Web and Data at @UKHSA. This means that 1 January 2022 will mark my final day in the agency — but *not* on the dashboard, so this is not goodbye. ...[1/10]

If Psaki won't even go into the same room with more than 14 triple-vaxxed, regularly tested and masked people, you shouldn't have to go to work and you definitely shouldn't send your kids to school.
