    Stuck in California 30 minutes from Tijuana but won't risk crossing the border. 74 % positivity reading in Tijuana. Meaning 3 out of 4 people testing are Covid positive. As someone in the high risk category it doesn't make sense right now. Hoping the Omicron wave dies down or some kind of miracle / treatment happens.

    If you ask me COVID is the new Aids. I said it two years ago that it will wreck havoc on the mongering world "duh! I wish the outcome was different. SURE it's available even now but it ain't the same.

    Hoping for a Hail Mary pass down by the 1 yard line.

    Here in Melbourne, we seem to have just about reached our Omicron peak. Mask wearing is mandatory indoors (eg supermarkets), sports events like Aus Open tennis have limited crowds. Interesting that our hot summer weather doesn't seem to have slowed the spread.

    Talk for months here from our federal govt (about to face an election) that we must live with Covid, and no more lockdowns or restrictions on businesses. But then Omicron came along and pretty much scuppered that (and State govts make the calls on lockdowns and restrictions here), and the emphasis went to getting booster shots ASAP. Rapid Antigen Tests are in high demand, with long queues outside chemists whenever they get stock. Due to high numbers of infections amongst workers, there have been shortages recently of some products in supermarkets (like fresh chicken) but it's far from a serious situation.

    Re international travel, if I wanted to visit the EU currently I would be required to get tested before each flight. I'm not prepared to risk being stranded in a foreign city after a positive test, and having to self-isolate in a hotel, never mind any hospital expenses that may be necessary. No problems showing proof of vaccination (triple-vacced) which I imagine may be required for some time, or wearing maks on planes, but not making travel plans until the pre-flight testing requirements are lifted.

    COVID 19 over as a pandemic but as endemic

    For me, now the question is whether the COVID 19 pandemic is almost over. News trending now is that the UK (its constituent states) have decided to remove all restrictions for instance mask and public gathering mandates, France, Germany, Spain, . Almost the EU are all loosening COVID-19 restrictions. And the World Health Organization has recommended the end of travel restrictions.

    We have to live with it as endemic from now. Then back to normal.

    On a personal note, I'm back from Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Germany, and am hoping to have trip reports for Geneva, Zurich, and Berlin posted here on ISG in those forums very soon. It was nice to see people enjoying themselves at museums and restaurants in the aforementioned countries. If it wasn't for all of the facemasks and having to show my CDC Covid vax card and passport to get into restaurants and museums, you'd think nothing was going on, Covid-wise. But that was before Covid started roaring back in Europe, as discussed in one of the links above.

    Last Post For Awhile

    Just writing to let you all know that I won't be posting in this forum again until probably November, as I'll be traveling in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Germany for much of October.

    Thanks to all of you who have expressed appreciation for the many links that I've posted in this forum. Hopefully, I've helped at least one of you with the information that I've passed along.

    Stay safe and stay healthy. Happy mongering to all of you as we close out 2021 and roll into 2022. Please look for my Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Germany reports in the appropriate forums in November.
