    Thankfully, 'they' are telling us that the same vaccine should work on this new strain. But with the lack of thought of so many people, expect to see cases rise again!

    I wonder if it has always been here, and not just checking for it until now?

    My mother lives in a retirement home in Toronto and starting yesterday the nurses in the home are getting the vaccine. It is a good thing to have the staff that deals with the people that live there as they leave and come back every day

    Yup. Some people are going visiting for the holidays, as if it's a regular holiday season. I think the cases will rise in about 14 days or so. Sad.

    Good news is that the next COVID vaccine made by Astra Zeneca + Oxford University (UK) is being looked at by Health Canada right now.

    Premiere Legault in Quebec is expected to announce an extention of school shutdowns, and businesses tomorrow at 5 PM. Also expected to announce a curfew. Everything will be announced tomorrow

    Curfew? Wow. Those who have to work the evening shift and night shift may get stopped a lot.

    I wish they would shut down the schools here in NB. All of New Brunswick is moving into the orange phase at midnight. I figured with Christmas and New Years parties there would be a surge in cases and decided to keep the kids home for a few days to wait and see. As expected cases have surged especially in zone 1 (where we live) and zone 3. (I know our numbers in NB are much less than most of the other provinces but at least the other provinces seem to have the sense to close down schools for now.)

    With respect to minimizing the spread of the virus, the time for much stricter measures such as a curfew was at least a couple of months ago, as soon as it became clear there would be a significant second wave. Our governments opted to try being less strict in order to balance in economic considerations. In terms of the "big picture", I don't think this was completely right or wrong, but they had to have known that being less strict would mean higher infection rates and death counts.

    Curfew starting on Saturday Jan 9 until Feb 8 from 8 PM to 5 AM. those working sifts and travelling during those hours will have to provide a letter or something like that from their employer, if stopped.

    Tele-travaille (working from home) is mandatory unless you are an essential worker. All non-essential businesses will be closed. No shopping, but pick-up allowed meaning you can shop on line and pick up at the store.

    Grocery stores will close at 7:30 PM to allow for staff to be gone by 8PM. The exception will be depanneurs who sell gasoline and pharmacies.

    Restaurants, gyms, cinemas, theatres, etc closed until Feb 8. I stopped at a McDonalds for coffee today and asked at the pick-up window if they will be closing. The woman said she didnt know but she didnt think so.

    All grade schools will reopen as of Jan 11 and grades 5-6 will have to wear masks in the hallways. Secondary schools will reopen on Jan 18 (mandatory in-home learning from Jan 11 to Jan 18) and they will have to wear masks in school all day. Govt said they will provide 2 masks per day for each student. (dont know if that will happen)

    Exterior sports allowed in family bubble only (example, you can go skating with your family)

    Persons aged 65 and older are beign to PLEASE STAY HOME for 4 weeks unless absolutely necessary example; docs visits, grocery shopping (at a minimum)

    Not a good idea to babysit or take care of grandkids, this is being discouraged

    Fines anywhere from $1,000 to $6,000 if caught between curfew hours without a valid reason. BUT

    If you have a dog, you can walk your dog within a mile of your home without any penalties! Thats with Premiere Legault said, and he said get a dog. AHEM! Go figure. Does that make sense to you.

    And right now there is no stopping from people going from zone to zone. Anyway, almost all of Quebec is in the Red Zone. So it makes no difference.

    During his news conference he said that it was determined by Sante Quebec (or someone like that( that most of the transmissions are in-home transmissions meaning that people are becoming contaminated from visitors.

    These measures should have been put in place in late Nov or early Dec but the economy has to keep rolling.

    These are true, unfortunately.
    Some families took their senior relatives to their homes, from retirement homes, interacted with lots of family, and sent the seniors back to the retirement homes, with symptoms.

    Some decided to have office Christmas parties, visit their grandchildren visit family members, travel to other cities because they had not seen family members for months, or even have New Year's parties.
