    Coronavirus

    Glad to hear you had a productive clinic visit! I think it's always helpful to see the clinicians who have expertise/more experience if you have a complex or new issue so the post covid clinic will likely be helpful. "Controlled spread" isn't popular because it isn't possible to isolate...

    RunDisney Team easyWDW

    It seemed like wine and dine was available for quite awhile, maybe a week? But they may not have as many extra medals for marathon/princess since they were smaller numbers than normal for original registration. I have no idea what the lead-time is for medal manufacturing.

    Rope Drop Test Track from IG?

    I would still try for Test Track at RD. Even if you go first to TT and it's down, Soarin will still be a walk-on if you head there next.

    Coronavirus

    I read a lot of articles about the pandemic. This one is a wonderful and thoughtful summary. If you have time to read anything this week, this is what I would recommend. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/09/pandemic-intuition-nightmare-spiral-winter/616204/

    Today my children discovered Alexa has a yodeling version of It's a Small World :eek:

    Coronavirus

    I'm sorry I wasn't expressing myself very well. I didn't mean to imply my experience in a clinic was universal or even attainable for the majority of situations. I realize I'm coming from a very privileged situation where I have a lot more control over my work situation. I'm so sorry your work...

    RunDisney Team easyWDW

    He did his first 5 K run/walk Turkey trot at 6.5 yrs. He did several run/walk 5 Ks over the next year. Over time he gradually increased the time running vs walking. It is very self-directed and I just keep whatever pace he wants to do. He decided early spring this year he wanted to win the...

    Coronavirus

    My optimistic-self thinks those folks will be the exception. As with most things in current society the outliers are vocal and get a lot of coverage that makes them appear more prevalent. Our clinic is pretty vigilant about masks. We have a greeter and temp/mask-checker at the front door and...

    Coronavirus

    It is frustrating to know we CAN save thousands of lives but are choosing not to. We have so many tools at our disposal now that aren't a lock-down and we're saying "no, I'm good with people dying who don't have to, I'll pass." But the great thing about a universal mask mandate is that you...

    Is Rise of the Resistance Worth a Day at HS?

    It's seems like it's harder now? I'm seeing people on twitter saying they are gone in 10, 20, 30 seconds. When I was watching before our December trip it seemed like it would be 2-3 minutes of availability. We didn't end up doing HS since we weren't up for getting there that early on our...

    Coronavirus

    I am a little more on the hopeful side for 2021. There is still the possibility of improvement prior to a vaccine with point of care testing. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/08/how-to-test-every-american-for-covid-19-every-day/615217/ I don't see the current administration...

    Why doesn't everyone do this?

    If you were going to plan a last minute trip and availability was limited, would you prefer OKW over SSR? I've never stayed at either.

    Is Rise of the Resistance Worth a Day at HS?

    For those who have been on it, is it worth the current hassle of trying to get a boarding pass? We can do either AK or HS but not both. We prefer AK to HS, especially with no shows at HS right now. If there was park hopping we'd try our luck getting a boarding pass and then hop to AK. But that...

    Why doesn't everyone do this?

    I would also think about potential 7-month availability 5-10 years in the future. Until the pandemic the trend has been it's progressively more difficult to get popular resorts at 7 months. Once DVC recovers from the pandemic, will that trend continue? Will what is difficult now become...

    RunDisney Team easyWDW

    I've been keeping up a half-marathon-ready maintenance routine. I've found virtual races helpful to stay motivated. My son has done several virtual 5 Ks so he gets me out when I'm not feeling it. He LOVES medals (he's 8) so I'm not feeling quite so bad about the ridiculous cost for runDisney's...

    Coronavirus

    I know a Liberty University student (not through work) COVID positive and quarantined. I only have 2nd hand information from their mother. But transmission was thought to occur outdoors at a prayer meeting (I didn't hear if they had masks). If it were a different school I'd be thinking "right...

    Coronavirus

    Tom Bricker posted a link to this article which I found helpful. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-08-27/covid-pandemic-u-s-businesses-issue-gag-rules-to-stop-workers-from-talking I'm hearing similar reports from parents/families about multiple employers locally. And also daycares...

    Recommended Face Masks

    I have not had that issue with the mask Josh recommends. Any mask that has a shaping piece around the nose (which this mask has) will probably be a better option because it will keep the fabric a little further out from your mouth. You'll want to avoid the straight across rectangle masks. I...

    I'm just saying...

    This is what concerns me as well. I spoke with a teacher at one of the grade schools here. Pre-COVID bus rules are you only qualify for bussing if you live greater than 1 mile from school. Teachers were picking up and walking students to class every day. For certain students if the teachers...
