Pretty sure I’ve posted this info about them in this thread before, doesn’t seem to matter to some.

New article at the Tyee from Nikiforuk that does a better job of not being so fear-mongering as his last one.

Is covid still a concern for people or have we mostly moved on?

Slowbalization, eh?  I was looking for a clever graph to counterpoint the king killing the economy.  This graph is kind of interesting though, showing how we are actually at an all-time high in trade openness.

I've not had symptomatic C-19. If I got exposed and had it without symptoms there is no way to tell without a blood test. I continue to take what I consider to be sensible precautions without going overboard. From the research I've done it seems like getting C-19 at all carries long-term risks we don't fully understand so I am not in the "don't worry about it be happy" boat. I'll keep trying to avoid it.

That's great, I feel about the same regarding long term unknowns. 

I've been to weddings, events, gatherings, travelled a bit.. nothing. Gf works in healthcare, has been exposed and tested dozens of times.. nothing. *knock on wood*.

Same situation for me. Lucky, or completely asymptomatic. I'm not the most social person to start with, but haven't been very vigilant about avoidance since things "opened up".

I have always been up to date vax wise but I caught Omicron twice last year.  Both times sucked, but they were comparable to other times I got sick enough to stay in bed.  I caught what I think was Norovirus a few years ago, and it was way worse.

The problem that I have is I have never felt fully better since I caught it last September.  It ended my riding season which really sucked because I ended up losing a bet for most vertical with a friend that was also turning 50.  Now the asshole is taunting me.  :)  

I tried to go for a ride in late October and I felt like collapsing.  Since then I keep catching colds and never seem to feel like I am back to full power.  I have lost 15 to 20 lbs as well, even though I have been pretty sedentary.  I am just getting over a bad cold now.   

Disclaimer:  I also had a fairly large benign tumor removed from my neck on Feb 1st, so I can't rule that out.  It was first noticed last fall as well, but I was still feeling good until I caught COVID.

I am tuning up the bikes this weekend and shaking off this cold as best I can, so I should see within a few weeks if I can get back to baseline.

I little while back I received an email or a text stating that another booster will be made available this spring. Don't know anybody who's received this booster.
