    • NZ had its first passenger flight arrive this morning where the passengers do not have to spent 14 days in Government controlled isolation hotels at $3,000 per individual. The flight came from Rarotonga, which has not had a single case of covid-19. At the moment it is only a one way thing. We are hoping that Rarotonga will let us fly there with no mandatory isolation by March 2021.

      There understandable pre caution is because they have no hospital capable of dealing with covid-19 patients.

        Congratulations. The U.S. (and the rest of the world) is quite aways from getting to that situation. We'll keep dithering on, however.

        • interesting question....

          Did shutting down outdoor dining contribute to California's COVID-19 surge?

            That is indeed a very good question. Although there is some evidence of the virus spreading from one person to another when both were sitting at the same table outdoors, I haven't seen any evidence of the virus spreading from somebody at one outdoor table to another table.

            And given that people who would meet at the same table for a meal tend to be friends, family, or co-workers who are likely to interact outside of restaurants anyway, they'll probably just order takeout and eat it together inside a home or office.

              • sure they forced people to stay indoors where air is pre-breathed and shared but at least they also had the genius to torment people that were sitting on the beach minding their own business and breathing fresh air too.

                  OK, I may have to rethink the viciously vituperative venom I have been spewing at my adoptive state.
                  At the appointed time we showed up at the hugely cavernous convention center in town and trepidatiously walked in the front door. No one around but a gentleman who directed us into the huge main hall where we saw . . . lots of medical personnel, but few 'people'. We were ushered to a table, where we showed our pre-filled-out consent forms, pointed to another table, sat down and got our shots (Moderna)!
                  No line, no waiting! It took less than 5 minutes (plus the 15-minute wait to see if we reacted to the shot) and we were done.
                  I could not believe how well-organized it all was. No fuss, no muss.
                  We return 4 weeks from today for the second dose, pre-screened.
                  I'm starting to like this whole 'senior citizen' thing!

                  • So I got the Moderna vacine this AM at a location of my doc’s NJ medical group. It was very efficient. I walked into the urgent care entrance (mask on) early for my appointment. After a temperature check and being asked if I had symptoms, I was given a card in the waiting room.

                    After a few minutes, they sent ten of us into the “shot” room where they had two groups of socially- distanced chairs separated by a nursing station. They went down the line giving all ten of us the shot in a couple minutes. We then had to wait 15 minutes to show no adverse reaction and were on our way. As each group of chairs emptied, another group of people would come in to fill them. They must have easily done several hundred people n a day.

                        In a perfect world certain counties would have an abundance with vaccine per 100k residents and other counties would have very few allocated per 100k. For instance take a look at this county in FL...

                          Boris Johnson has warned that it is “too early” to say if England’s coronavirus lockdown will end in the spring, as a leading scientific adviser said it would be unwise to consider reopening pubs and restaurants until May.

                          Amid signs that severe restrictions could drag into the summer, it was confirmed that June’s Glastonbury festival — the largest arts event of its kind in the world — would be cancelled for the second year in a row.

                            There is now a move in some counties to bar vaccines for winter part timers.

                                The county just south of mine will be offering it at the local Publix grocery store. Not sure how they will stop Georgians from driving done and getting them - check Drivers License?
