Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We're the same.

Apparently now the only secondary in Dundee (at time of writing) without a direct Covid-19 case. It's been bizarre for us - staff absences have been as low as I can remember.

We're following most of that as well. One way systems in corridors, wiping down anything they use. It's been strange in science as we've not done anything other than demos so far because of issues with goggles (They'd need cleaned after use and apparently the straps take a while to dry?!). Each of the kids are getting their own elasticated strap to use from next week. It's been less of an issue in physics as we don't use them generally but still not had as much practical as usual.

I personally can't remember a year where I've had so little absence, after the initial onslaught.  We're a school with 2000 people in the building and track and trace measures have been used twice for pupils. There's been a few members of staff off but for self-isolation/awaiting tests, not because they've had it. Whilst I fully accept the fact COVID may be flying about asymptomatically, I wonder if the measures have cut down on a lot of the other colds and diseases that would normally be causing absence.

I'm beginning to think that your inside man at the Sun might not be too reliable.

It turns out the NCAA didn't discover a link between Covid and Myocarditis that no one else has noticed. What a shock.

What's less of a shock, given that it only seemed to affect american football players, is that Myocarditis can be caused by long term steroid use...

A large chunk of me thinks they're at it. Dragging it out as long as they can (all the time increasing the need - and value - of it).

When this all kicked off, autumn was spoke about. Now into next year....

Vaccine guys must be like any Specialist. A bit like IT at work, they can tell you anything and that you wouldn't  understand the answer etc. Then just go back to playing games and making up playlists all day.

Tier 0: Verge of tiers

I greenied this then read back and saw it had already been done. I tried to get my green back but it will only allow me to red it so that's what I had to do. Sorry Chris, but I think it was the right thing to do in the circumstances. 

Please don't shoot me in the groin and chop off my head.

Is the one at the front a man or a woman? I could probably get the jail for asking.

Anyway, all their songs sound the same and they haven't got poppies on. A couple of years in the army would sort them.

Think it should be noted that Ireland is already starting to see a pretty significant reduction in cases and COVID-positive hospitalisations following the new lockdown, which came in to force last week.

Monday was a bank holiday so today will be the big test as Tuesday's data starts to come in.

These figures should be viewed with the caveat that they considered lowering the Ct for a positive result just a few weeks ago.

I'm not suggesting they would do that to 'enhance' the impact of any restrictions they brought in, and no one knows if they implemented this methodology change, but it could be a factor.

Can you link me to that?

Based on the beard and moustache I'd say a man.
