  1. They are starting with vaccines for the 12-15 years old in my state on Thursday. If enough kids get vaccinated, it may make up for a large chunk of the vaccine hesitant but I don't like the idea of everyone being held hostage behind this vaccine. I'm glad kids are now getting it but after they can all get it, they need to flip the switch (as they like to say) back to normal and stop trying to protect those unwilling to get vaccinated. That should be happening soon and can't happen fast enough. All these restrictions/conditions won't make much sense after that.
  2. May not want to risk it. This is what the cdc is saying about simulated cruises that meet the threshold and you can bet they will have similar requirements for actual cruises. May be tough to get home if you have to fly. Looks like they are only considering antibodies good for 90 days and with a letter. In addition, if a simulated voyage is ended early due to the above threshold being met or exceeded during the simulation, the cruise ship operator will have to repeat the simulated voyage at a later date. If the threshold for the voyage is met or exceeded during the simulation, th
  3. Yes, and by all major economic metrics he is right (GDP growth, stock market growth, job creation, benefits based stimulus vs. tax cut stimulus). I say this as a independent who despises our two party system but I always find it funny when fiscal doomsayers only come out of the woodwork when one side is in power. It grows tiresome.
  4. You sound like the CDC with all that doom and gloom (J/K). I always find it interesting to look at history and see that it's only important when one party is in power but totally ignored when the other is in power. It also correlates closely with economic crashes and economic drivers. Strange how that works. Even the orange messiah said the economy was better under the party he belonged to for the majority of his life before switching sides to run for election.
  5. I think it's more interpretation of powers. They thought they could do the eviction moratorium based on some old interpretation of the law and that didn't go so well for them either. It will be interesting to see if this will also be considered overreach of authority as well.
  6. They sure are! You don't need insurance to get the shot. They charge those with insurance a small administrative fee that most insurers pick up because landing in the hospital with covid costs a lot more than the small administrative fee (currently $40). Those without insurance, the government picks up the administrative fee (along with the cost of the vaccine for everyone). This is the reason they ask for your insurance info if you have insurance. Those without insurance, or identification even, can also get the shots.
  7. I think the thinking is that you may not test positive but exposure is enough take the extra precaution unless you have been fully vaccinated or have had a covid recovery within 90 days. So they are essentially saying you can get 3 months of protection with a natural infection as well. This may prevent some taking a cruise unvaccinated. That would be a pain to deal with. My buddy got covid in IL at a training and couldn't fly home either (said he was put on no fly list). Had to rent a car and drive back, staying in hotels along the way. Not sure if they are still doing this but if something li
  8. Good. I can't help you with your reading comprehension. Sorry.
  9. High oil prices drive all other economies down and prices up. It's like celebrating a tax write off while also raising your taxes much higher than the write off. You'll be happy with your oil patch investments but pay through the nose for everything else. Cheap oil is good for the economy.
  10. Also interesting. I suspect this will apply when cruises resume as well. In addition, if a simulated voyage is ended early due to the above threshold being met or exceeded during the simulation, the cruise ship operator will have to repeat the simulated voyage at a later date. If the threshold for the voyage is met or exceeded during the simulation, the cruise ship operator will also have to advise all travelers to avoid commercial air travel or ground transportation for 14-days post voyage, unless they have one of the following: Proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID
  11. https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/cruise/ti-simulated-voyages-cso.html Looks like 2-7 days Simulated voyages must be between 2-7 days in length with a least one overnight stay[2] to test the efficacy of the cruise ship operator’s ability to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 onboard the cruise ship, including through embarkation, disembarkation, and post-disembarkation testing. [2] To fully test all procedures during a simulated voyage, CDC recommends a minimum voyage length of 3 days with 2 overnight stays.
  12. Where is this 5 days coming from? I thought they were waiting on clarification (so called part 3) on what these test cruises would entail?
  13. I've answered that, if you don't find it satisfactory then I don't know what to tell you.
