https://patch.com/new-jersey/holmdel-hazlet/nj-gov-candidate-calls-gathering-limit-face-mask-lift-may I expect NJ will lift outdoor mask mandate first by next month then last one is indoor masks by late summer/fall as NJ will no longer uses masks and social distancing by fall.

Nocebo effect is real. Whether real shot or not. Just the idea that you expect something can cause it. Through a friend I know a surgeon who is in the same trial I am in and was convinced he had the real deal. He got the placebo. Nocebo has been seen in many other vaccines too. Not to say many side effects aren't real effects directly from the vaccine, but some are due to the mind thinking it should. We're waiting on a vaccine here too. Hoping for approval soon, but how long it takes no one knows. Hybrid, completely remote or all in, the older kids did hang out more. We have zero in school cases. Outside of school including fully remote times caused some spread. If we wait until vaccines are approved districts would never go back this year. Not even until 2022. We've been back all in since March 1st. Ticked the teachers off as they were not vaccinated fully, but it was okay.

I've had one going for a bit, need to catch up on this past week though. Was using it for Indiana comparison. *didn't realize how bored I get when we aren’t planning a Disney vacation lol*

NJ will probably be right in front of NY in line- whenever that is.

I think so but their site is very miserable on mobile. I'll see what I can find when I get to my computer.

Do they have it by State? @sullivan.kscott was talking about FL specifically.

The CDC publishes that chart for us. The seven day moving average peaked at 3.2 million doses on April 11. It has been falling over the past ten days and sat at 2.8 million as of April 16. Data newer than April 16 is incomplete so that's the latest we have.

Good perspective. Maybe someone has time (I won't until next week) and can take the daily "Total People Vaccinated" from the vaccine report that @DCBaker posts and put them in a spreadsheet for the past 6-8 weeks and then subtract the prior day's total to see how many people are added to that category daily. If you plot that and do a seven day rolling average it should show if the demand is staying relatively consistent. There are concerning things like when people post articles about Palm Beach County having unclaimed appointments and County sites but the Publix, Walmart and CVS appointments in the County seem to fill up so maybe it's less of a demand issue and more of a convenience issue or preference issue.

2,000 cases and 24 deaths are statistically zero. You'd be better off never leaving your house to drive anywhere because car crashes are far more common. Nobody has ever argued that COVID presents *precisely zero* risk to children. We have argued that the life-altering mitigation efforts are not commensurate with the miniscule magnitude of the risk. David Leonhardt at The New York Times put it very well a few days ago. "Victory over Covid will not involve its elimination. Victory will instead mean turning it into the sort of danger that plane crashes or shark attacks present — too small to be worth reordering our lives."

Which, of course, is the opposite order of effectiveness according to the WHO.

As I've said before, the biggest motivating factor for me to get vaccinated as soon as I had the opportunity was to minimize the chance of losing taste and/or smell for a long period of time.

You don't have to worry about COVID if you're asymptomatic. Children don't have to worry about COVID. Oh yeah?... https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/06/health/covid-children-mis-c.html?unlocked_article_code=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACEIPuonUktbfqohkTFUbBSbVUNEjsh3Bjv_RwbB5jX__KCSPRDAHyuUORoPG-1vIYeArQeoP6AmhZY0LNq4zFrs1x_VDPkdpRk7288uKw5oJL2BsoI_vGz4_1c-IVOsy-3qzYzLncekhnuzvtU7MeCK9DvykpH4mJQpko5VgdUj7miBbg_eYTZMmn4V2zvwjBZhlRDofZyLsvvfgCxR2ONjufQiLo0BtGLkfAWeP6Ibav7EQcwxSCUbESGd95gs-7tBfMdAUOcXvPpidFxL_C8dOeFp2f6LJrlQ&smid=url-share

The people who are still closely following the masking rules aren't the majority of ones hesitant to get the vaccine. I have no complaint with vaccine incentives. I only objected to a specific bit of nonsense the anti-maskers have been pushing lately. "Get a vaccine and stop wearing a mask" is simply a way of dropping mask mandates altogether. I think any ACTUAL incentives to get the vaccine (that aren't a shadow way of dropping Covid mitigations earlier than necessary) are a good thing, and I encourage them. Knock yourself out, Budweiser and Krispy Kreme! 🍺🍩
