Any other outbreaks in Grand forks since that one?

It will be interesting to see if there will be a spike in the positive testing rate in a week since ND loosened things up somewhat on May 1.

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

Why would anyone want to go back to work when you get an extra $2,400 a month on top of your unemployment benefits.

Forum headline: Vinyl Taco staff walk out, protesting unsafe conditions

Most of the article was complaining about thin masks.

Wanting to only have takeout after 4 pm.

Free health insurance and a higher wage.

Wanting temperature checks and sanitizing pens.

I saw some commies in DC we’re pushing for $2000 per family member per month up to $10,000 per month.  $120k per year puts you at roughly the top 10%...so 90% of families (albeit with 3 kids) would be better off getting government money than working...

I think it depends on whether or not the person ate Taco Bell recently.  

Hey Old Fella, this is a joke about how Taco Bell food will make you feel. Just making sure you can keep up.

Which of the employees’ complaints do you not see as valid?

According to the following article, approximately two-thirds of ND's coronavirus-related deaths have been people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. I hadn't seen where this info had been reported before.

https://www.grandforksherald.com/newsmd/coronavirus/6484796-Gov.-Burgum-details-COVID-19-nursing-home-deaths-in-telephone-town-hall

From the article:

Quote

Burgum said all of those who died had underlying health conditions, and some were already in hospice care before contracting the illness — thus, they died with COVID-19, not because of it.

Who said the Fargo vinyl taco employees aren’t? 

 

Their highly marketable and valuable skill sets are in short supply and high demand no doubt.

Just heard the revenue lost from healthcare systems in this country during the first quarter of 2020 was close to $500B. If I remember the lockdowns were done as to not overwhelm hospital system so instead the lockdown in going to kill off healthcare systems financially.

Even the hospitals that have had heavy loads of covid patients are a big part of that lost revenue.  On average, a covid patient costs just under 90k.  Reimbursement won't be anywhere near that.  Plus, we'll likely be way behind elsewhere in getting our revenue generating services back.

Ironic that the same health care industry that's gonna need to treat everybody as they continue to get sick from the "other" viruses that aren't as important as this one, is getting gutted right now.

Each death is individually tragic.  I would say that my parents and my wife’s parents would willingly give their lives to preserve the American way of life for their grandchildren.  
 

The problem here was actually compromise.  We did neither a totalitarian nor a Free will approach, because either was too politically damaging.  Instead we tried navigate the middle.  King Solomon...split the child down the middle...disaster

Just imagine that amplified in a Medicare for all world....at least the commercially insured will cover the expenses (assuming it hits an outlier clause in days or charges)...Medicare...which I’m assuming ALL of the nursing home deaths are covered by will reimburse pennies on the dollar for Covid stays.

Yeah, there are definitely things I would like changed in US healthcare, but that's not the answer.
