Exhausting

Today on transit the bus was crowded, mask less person sitting next to me coughing. Everyone standing and most people not wearing masks. Working with high risk people who don’t wear masks either, I have resigned myself to the fact that I will probably get Covid come the Fall.

Get with the program, Translink.

Ugh, I am so sorry to hear that. What you describe about the state of the bus is not only disappointing, but also shameful and unacceptable.

Required masks strictly enforced (with disposable masks distributed/dispensed near major transit hubs), hand sanitizing stations installed at the front of every bus, thermal scan infrastructure at the door, and established passenger limits with an alarm that sounds when that limit is about to be surpassed are things that would increase my confidence in Translink operating during a COVID winter. We’ve been lining their pockets for years and it’s the least that we deserve.

Go get tested. You'll test positive.

Just wear a mask, people, especially on transit.

You could have had it. The majority of people in BC who've already had it, don't know they did. Remember estimates based on serotology were that by May, 8 times more people had already had COVID than official numbers showed. That's likely increased since then.

unintended consequence

is that single vehicle commuters will go up. when you are in a car by yourself, or riding a bike by yourself you have freedom of choice. it is not meant to voice opinion either way, just that I would rather pay money to have freedom of choice than ride transit.

By chance I happened to visit emergency 2 weeks ago in Langley (with my mask on). People were coming in without masks. I queried the powers that be and I was told it was not mandated by the province for the general public...in hospitals...in emergency. Unfuckingbelievable.

I might add I found the same thing in the New West Emergency same night, people showing up without masks. SO inconsiderate.
