  1. Maybe tear gas kills the virus. One can only hope. #NovaScotiaStrong
  2. Made it to 84f here. That was after it took most of the morning to burn off the low cloud/fog. Been very dry. Could use some rain. #NovaScotiaStrong
  3. Don’t worry. If people start getting too fast and loose with the restrictions, the virus we’ll let us know. Might have to push the boundaries a little bit. See what we can get away with and what we can’t. #NovaScotiaStrong
  4. Is the contact tracing app available yet? #NovaScotiaStrong
  5. This has me wondering just how many tests and frequency of those tests, can a person take before there is inflammation and severe irritation. There has to be a better way. No way someone could do that at home if they ever want to move to home based testing. Improvements need to be found on that front. #NovaScotiaStrong
  6. Our winter pattern lagged 3 months to late. Such a shame. Oh well. #NovaScotiaStrong
  7. I thought the use of masks was not to keep you from catching it but to cut down the chances of you spreading it by containing particles when you cough/sneeze. Also keeps you from touching your mouth. Lots of people instinctively wipe there nose with their hands after a sneeze. Then they touch things. That’s how touch surfaces get contaminated. Not perfect but not just a placebo in my opinion. #NovaScotiaStrong
  8. Just had this problem. I had two rats(at least) living under two different feeders. Never had a problem before. Anyway I just took the feeders away and eventually the rats left. I haven’t seen them or evidence of them in weeks. So start with removing the feeders and see where that gets you. #NovaScotiaStrong
  9. It’s not going to let us out. #NovaScotiaStrong
  10. One last blast of winter here...hopefully. A couple of slushy inches but more in elevated areas. #NovaScotiaStrong
  11. Eastern sections of Cape Breton got crushed. Hearing reports of over a foot in some spots over by Louisbourg. Saw a dusting here which was vaporized by the rising sun.
  12. I’m skeptical of attaining immunity from just one exposure. Especially for mild cases Not be surprised if you have to catch a few times to build up sufficient enough antibodies. We’ll see as test progresses. This virus seems like it’s always one or two steps ahead. Kinda scary.
  13. I believe google and Apple are working on something regarding contact tracing. Basically how I envision it would be something like this. Person tests positive. A message would sent out to all persons that phones had close contact with during the previous 14days. Those folks would then be instructed to get immediate testing. If negative, tracing stops and contact continues about their day. If positive, the contacts with that person get notified and repeat. It’s not perfect but something like that seems doable provided you get people onboard. Probably a tough sell but if you were told that’s the only way you get a pass to return to some kind of freedom?..hmm.
  14. Maybe not. We’d be surprised what the cell phone makers can backdoor in. Wouldn’t take much for that to be run secretly in the background. I’ve thought a lot about contract tracing going forward and I think the only way to be as detailed and as precise as is going to needed, is with some kind of electronic assistance. Going by people’s memories as to where and who they had contact with over a 2 week period, is not fine tuned enough. Especially with rapid on the fly testing. Exposures need to be identified quickly for best containment. This is all after restrictions are lifted. We might just have to let big brother keep tabs on us in order to gain our freedom of moment. Strange eh? Just my opinion.
