Lifting of masks in schools wasn’t wise last spring. The non-existence of masks in classrooms this September isn’t wise. Public health won’t advise school boards to be proactive, to protect families and educators from #COVID19. They can’t stand up to politicians. We can. #MaskUp

To complement the weekly slide, we've launched our own NB Covid-19 Dashboard: protectnb.ca/dashboard.html It's still in development and has hiccups on Monday, but it is functional. Comments/suggestions/questions are welcome.

My clients who suffer from Alzheimer’s and Dementia are going through very rapid declines of their cognitive abilities post COVID infection. Trust me, NO ONE wants to live this way. Protect your brain, #WearAMask

A reminder: * COVID is airborne. * Herd immunity did not happen. * Omicron was not mild. * Kids do get sick. * Transmission does occur in schools. * Each variant is not milder. * No wave has been an exit wave. Minimizers have been wrong about every single one of those thingsβ€¦πŸ¦

🧡 In advance of a potential fall/winter seasonal set of Omicron waves, this thread will begin to share facts, advice and reminders on how to up our game in areas that matter most, including masking and indoor air quality. #Masks #CovidIsAirborne

Thanks to our ineffective, ridiculous Higgs govt. 😑 My sympathies to the loved ones of the deceased, and my heart goes out to all the healthcare workers trying to work through this chaos. #CovidIsNotOver #COVIDisAirborne #WearAMask #N95 #LongCovid #NeverVoteConservative

Had to explain to my mother that the guy panhandling outside the hiring grocery store probably doesn't have a home address or a vehicle and that's why he can't get a job there, and she was STUNNED to know those things are requirements.

I haven't tweeted the last few days because my hospital is literally full of patients & I'm on a 9 day stretch because we are so short of healthcare workers. Despite what MSM & the medical professionals who don't work in a hospital try to tell you COVID-19 is not the f*cking flu.

The freedom of choice champions must have trouble explaining their acceptance of seatbelts while they fight against masks, considering we have [checks notes] 10-20 times more deaths each day from Omicron than from cars.

I think: a) there's a lot more Covid brain damage around than people realise b) people don't know what brain damage looks like c) it's cumulative

What if β€œlearning to live with COVID” meant learning to live with basic precautions like masks and enhanced air handling rather than living with repeated infections until your long-term health is threatened?

I wear an N95 mask when I go to any public place indoors πŸ’―. I have not been infected yet, I don't have to worry about long covid effects like cognitive impairment or heart issues. I like my brain and heart just the way they are, thank you. #masks #maskswork

It hurts my soul that we are years into this pandemic and schools are no safer today then the first days of Covid. Why is there not a mass campaign to install better filtration and air systems,promote n95 masks usage,distancing??? IS THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD NOT WORTH IT???

I’ve observed the same subtle change in 2 people I dearly love, who’ve had Covid. 1 once/asymptomatic, the other twice, moderate symptoms both times. Neither listenπŸ‘‚πŸΎterribly well, anymore. Both seem blissfully unaware of this change. Over-speak/don’t take in info, miss nuance.πŸ’”
