Not convinced that the Department Of Justice has taken historical interest in people showing each other photos of people they've fucked. Otherwise we'd probably hear a lot more about Gene Simmons doing nine consecutive life sentences, and 90% of your female and gay friends who use dating apps would have stopped hanging out in bars with you long before the pandemic, due to being in priz.

The DOJ is investigating Gaetz for sex trafficking. Showing nudie pics are a side issue. Unless Gaetz was showing the nudie pics to angle for interested colleagues he could pimp for.

The only trip we are planning is to rent a cabin in the UP for a week at the end of the summer, but that's pending where numbers are by then since our son is below the 12-15 range and is very unlikely to be vaccinated by that point.

Just a heads up, you're likely going to find that mask compliance in the UP is somewhat less than what you've experienced in Chicago. Maybe this is obvious, I dunno, but I'm from up there and my parents still live there, so I hear stories and read news, etc. Depending on where you go you may be the only person masked up.

@ Simon H. --- fair!! i totally can appreciate that sentiment. fingers crossed for you.

I mean, nothing is set in stone at all yet. We're just all desperately in need of a trip to look forward to and a cabin within (longish) driving distance seems reasonable to plan four or five months out. Obviously if shit looks dire, we'll cancel. I mean, we wouldn't dare head up there right now with the numbers as they sit, but I'm hoping for a turnaround by then.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 April 2021 18:10 (yesterday) link

I was in marquette and houghton in the UP in the past month and it seemed like everyone in the former was wearing a mask while nobody in the latter was.

joygoat, Monday, 19 April 2021 18:14 (yesterday) link

If you are vaccinated, and you adhere to all guidelines and requirements (masks, tests, etc.), and the destination country has no problem with you arriving, should you not travel?

Just using the US as an example, we only just hit 25% of the population fully vaccinated. That isn't even close to what we need for herd immunity, so unnecessary air travel is a terrible idea right now. The new case rate needs to be near zero before people start flying everywhere.

Maybe you're vaccinated, but A. new variants are popping up that you might either not be protected against or you can carry asymptomatically and B. the vaccines aren't 100%... they're awesome in terms of protecting you from hospitalization and mean we can hit herd immunity faster than we would with vaccines only 50-60% effective, but we need to see that herd immunity in full effect before going back to normal, and we just haven't got there yet.

mark e. smith-moon (f. hazel), Monday, 19 April 2021 18:24 (yesterday) link

I dunno, if the goal is herd immunity and zero cases, I imagine that rules out travel for ... a couple more years? Which seems pretty untenable.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 18:36 (yesterday) link

I saw this Nature article on why herd immunity is likely impossible at this point:

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00728-2

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 18:36 (yesterday) link

I mean, we probably are never hitting her immunity at this point, so I guess travel is just over forever if that's our benchmark.

"herd immunity"

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 April 2021 18:38 (yesterday) link

we still need to know more about the risks that vaccinated people pose to the greater population, but it seems like an odd thing to fret over when a large portion of the country plans to remain unvaccinated and refuses to observe any semblance of masking or distancing whatsoever.

f. hazel said we need herd immunity and

the new case rate needs to be near zero before people start flying everywhere.
Just looking now,
2,963 new cases and 4 new deaths in the United Kingdom

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 18:45 (yesterday) link

And keep in mind, that's the UK, where you currently cannot travel to without a lengthy quarantine. How enforced it is, I dunno, but I think we're operating under the idea of "travel" as "travel that does not require a week+ in a hotel at your own expense."

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 18:47 (yesterday) link

the UK is planning to lift domestic restrictions pretty soon IIUC. not sure about inbound travel given the situation in the ROW. my point is more that you can set a pretty strict requirement to lift a given restriction and it's not impossible to reach it. (well, it might be in a country in which 25% of adults plan to refuse vaccination.)

π” π”žπ”’π”¨ (caek), Monday, 19 April 2021 18:59 (yesterday) link

I mean, we probably are never hitting herd immunity at this point, so I guess travel is just over forever if that's our benchmark.

Should we travel now? No, we should not. Is herd immunity a pipe dream at this point which will lead to all airplanes being grounded forever? I think that's pretty obviously a different question and involves a lot more conjecture. But this summer, vacations shouldn't involve flights.

mark e. smith-moon (f. hazel), Monday, 19 April 2021 18:59 (yesterday) link

xpost I didn't say impossible, I said years, if the standard is no new cases and herd immunity.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 19:02 (yesterday) link

i understand. i'm saying that a rich country with access to vaccines could set an aggressive target for lifting all domestic restrictions (probably not zero, but small, like 5 per million or something) and that wouldn't be synonymous with "never lift this restriction" or "years" because they could reach it in the next few weeks.

the UK and israel (both now in the low tens per million) have in fact done this, and are going to succeed.

exponential growth goes both ways (or it does when there is effective healthcare and public health systems and hasn't been epistimic collapse).

π” π”žπ”’π”¨ (caek), Monday, 19 April 2021 19:11 (yesterday) link

Hope you are right! What remains to be seen is how successful these countries remain once they totally open up their borders again, considering tight restrictions on travel, and quarantines and whatnot, are some of the best ways of maintaining that success.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 April 2021 19:17 (yesterday) link

i would imagine the UK, a bastion of civil liberties and famously pro-immigrant island, is going to have a pretty strong stomach for requiring proof of vaccination to enter.

π” π”žπ”’π”¨ (caek), Monday, 19 April 2021 19:34 (yesterday) link

requiring proof of vaccination at the border would be a tough sell in the US because 25% of US adults will never get vaccinated (that number will be more like 10% in the UK, maybe even less). also the UK doesn't have land borders and is already committing unrelated international trade suicide, so there's less to lose by shutting people out.

Not to say anyone itt is doing this (I do totally understand what f. hazel is saying, believe me, I'm not planning to leave the country for quite some time yet), but it is frustrating to feel like the goalposts are being shifted wrt what fully vaxxed people can and can't do. I can absolutely see why people are frustrated to have been told to be patient until vaccinations are here, only to get vaccinated and then be shamed for doing things like traveling to see family they haven't seen for over a year.

tracer otm. there's no substantial evidence for A.

B omits that they are also awesome at protecting you from _any_ kind of infectionr: https://www.statnews.com/2021/03/29/real-world-study-by-cdc-shows-pfizer-and-moderna-vaccines-were-90-effective/

Participants were tested weekly to look for all cases of Covid infection, even asymptomatic ones. There were 161 Covid infections in the unvaccinated workers, compared with 16 in workers who had received only one dose by the time of their infection and only three infections in people who had received both doses and were two weeks out from their second dose.

there's no equivalent study that I know of for J&J or AZ, but moderna and pfizer appear to be almost perfect vaccines with they make you 90%+ less likely to get covid with or without symptoms (which means they also make you 90%+ likely to give it to someone else). this is based on real world studies with the variants that are circulating now, now whatever was around last summer when the original trials for those vaccines were running.

anyway IMO if you are fully vaxxed, there is no reason not to travel, particularly for reasons like this (to see family). is there some small chance that vaxxed people can still catch and spread covid? the evidence seems inconclusive at best, and if it were a clear and present danger I think we would not see these declining cases that we've seen in Israel and, in fact, parts of the US where vaccinations are happening at a large scale.

nah it's definitely different for me, my brain is dying, it's real specific stuff that i know didn't happen before. and at the magazine stuff used to get edited like 4 times, twice on paper w.pen, so i am pretty conscious of what it used to be like.

I feel like a negative test in the past 4 days or something is a much more useful barometer to fly than a vaccination card. You can be vaxxed and still theoretically contagious, or at least it's possible.

https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/covid-flight-record-infections-india-b1833655.html

In theory everyone was tested 72 hrs before travel.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Monday, 19 April 2021 20:55 (yesterday) link

Yep, you're not going to catch everyone. But that's true with people who have been vaccinated too, they can still be positive. I mean, my druthers are for everybody to be vaxxed before they get on a plane, and masked in flight. But I also think a negative test before flying is a good idea.

How's your family, tips?

All fine so far. Youngest kid β€” our first case β€” gets to go back to school tomorrow. His brother is in isolation the rest of the week, but has been healthy so far. My wife and I tested negative again on Friday, so it looks like our first shot is holding up pretty well. We should all be clear by this weekend, knock wood.

Minneapolis some kids have gone back, it was up to it parents. but the rest of the week everyone's back home in case the Chauvin trial goes the wrong way. fun times. my daughter's been home anyway

I thought a recent study had shown that people who are fully vaxxed are not contagious?

The B.1.617 variant was first detected in India, but has since been found elsewhere, including California. It has worried experts as it contains two mutations in the spike protein that, it has been suggested, may boost its ability to escape the body’s immune responses. It is thought the variant may also be able to infect the body more easily.

Every single flight arriving in Toronto from India in the last month has had at least one COVID-positive passenger, and one-third of all international flights have carried the virus.

Whether it mutated in the US or mutated in India, I'm sticking to my "bad idea to fly it in and out unchecked" position.
