You really focus on new york.With more than half of America's largest police department unvaccinated against COVID-19, the NYPD said that police who want to remove their masks at work must provide proof they’ve gotten the COVID vaccination.
“Members who do not have official proof of COVID-19 vaccination on file with the Medical Division must wear a face covering at all times while working, whether indoors or outside, including while driving in Department vehicles,” the mandate stated.
NYPD cops must either wear mask, prove they’re vaxxed - or face disciplinary actionIn a statement Wednesday, the NYPD said cops who want to remove their masks at work must provide proof they’ve taken the COVID-19 vaccination to the department’s medical division.www.nydailynews.com
Because it is North America's largest city?You really focus on new york.
Why is that?
I was more curious than anything else, it didn't bother me.Because it is North America's largest city?
But, don't worry about it. I removed the post if it bothers you that much.

Well played.This news ( yesterday ) for North America's fourth largest city ( that includes Mexico City ) caught my eye.
Toronto police a notable exception as city, TTC announce staff vaccine mandatesSeveral Ontario police forces say they’re waiting on guidance from the province on the possibility of a general vaccine mandate for police officers, but there is nothing stopping any one service from acting.www.thestar.com
Personally, for vaccinated members, I doubt they would appreciate being cooped up in a car with an unvaccinated partner, who was not at least masked.
( Metro Police have had two-officer cars for fourty-five years. )
The reason I pay attention to what happens in America's largest city,
is because what happens there often influences policy for the 37,600 employees of Canada's largest city.
It may also have a domino effect on GTA municipal employees.
During our cross-country drive over 15 days this month, our personal observations of COVID 19 protocols ect...
We've passed through 7 / 10 provinces during our 9200 km travels. Traffuc on the highways is light. Hotels, rest stops and other common tourist areas are less than 50% of normal operation. Management / Owners are eager for rhe business, staff are tired. Training and customer service standards have dropped.
Large narional compnies encourage masks, but generally from East to West the publuc use of masks and other COVID safety measures declines to almost zero. Nobody is batting an eye at travellers from out of province. No isolation / quaratine needed. Never asked if we are vacinated.
Basically, those who chose to travel and drive this summer had a lighter, easier time than regular tourism years. We did note, pre-booking hiotels well in advance is key. Every stop, fro t desk is heard saying "we are fully booked". So most of the ongoing COVID controls are now in the background.
Again. These are our observations from our trip.

Spanish flu eventually burnt out, I hope this one does as well.Not surprising. We have annual flu shots that target a couple different strains based on our best guess of what’s coming. In the case of COVID we have a virulent pandemic with tens of millions of active cases at any given time. That’s a lot of selective pressures, a lot of different sets of mutations and opportunities for same to replicate… So yeah, while we’re in full pandemic mode, booster shots tailored to what we’ve learned about emerging strains are unsurprising. It’ll eventually simmer down and we’ll probably have COVID inoculation mixed in with our flu shots.
It won't. Many money to be made from a lot of entities including politicians. I kick myself for not having the slightest foreshadow to invest in pfizer or moderna. They are 10x in less than a year. Should've invested heavily. I'm still thinking I should invest with all the boosters that are going to be ordered worldwide every 8-12 months and making vaccines mandatory.Spanish flu eventually burnt out, I hope this one does as well.
If cases would no longer be reported, this would end.
And if we just stopped all diagnostic testing for heart disease, cancer, infectious diseases, strokes, diabetes, STIs, etc., just think of how much money we could save! Never need to build another piece of laboratory or imaging equipment ever again! People would just drop dead, the local undertaker would pick them up in the village square in a wheelbarrow, and we could all get on with our lives!
Are you fucking serious???It won't. Many money to be made from a lot of entities including politicians. I kick myself for not having the slightest foreshadow to invest in pfizer or moderna.

I'm still thinking I should invest with all the boosters that are going to be ordered worldwide every 8-12 months and making vaccines mandatory.
If cases would no longer be reported, this would end. Covid will spread and will be endemic, now with Delta spreading just as much in vaccinated vs unvaccinated but vaccines work and people won't die in droves as they try to make us to believe. But fear sells, and it sells really well. Cases are rising! Mandatory vaccines! You will lose your job! The sky will colapse!
