    The kid behind the counter clearly saw her and didn't give a fuck. Must wear masks signs were clearly posted at the entrance.

    Folks are just fucking nuts to even consider getting their coffee from those places.

    Infuriating and borderline negligent. This company has been open in the office throughout the entire pandemic and quite frankly hasnít given two shits about it. Weíre all in cubicles so we are somewhat social ďdistancedĒ but other than that, nothing. They handed out masks in June but nobody wears them.

    I made my thoughts known to my Manager that this made and will make things very uncomfortable for the next little bit here.

    Now, is literally the perfect time to stay at home if you have even the tiniest cough. Nobody can or will question you on it. Why are you coming to work when it sounds like youíre coughing up every single giant load you took last night?

    Stay the fuck at home, please.


    Rant over. Hoping that fucking moron tests negative.

    Default 2020 CoronaVirus Outbreak - That began in Wuhan, China and is spreading

    Update and thickening plot regarding the company I work for. This is a good one.

    On October 7th one of my co-workers left work unannounced after 2 hours. An email was sent 4.5 hours later advising that this girl was going to be off ďuntil further noticeĒ.

    5 days later I had a conversation with my Manager where I asked if this person had tested positive for Covid. She responded, ďWell...you know I can only tell you if thereís a positive test, right?Ē I having never had a conversation like this said, ďYeah, I guess that makes sense.Ē My Manager went onto say that ďall I can say is that itís a personal family matter.Ē

    This past Thursday during the conversation I had with my Manager about the coughing girl, which I mentioned in an earlier post, she again alluded to the fact that the coworker from Oct 7 was not Covid related and it was a personal family issue.


    Well, on Friday afternoon shortly before going home for the weekend I was texting the girl who was sent home back on October 7.

    She confirmed to me that she did in fact test positive for Covid and thatís why she was sent home and had been working from home these last 2 weeks.


    So, yeah. Itís been a fun and disillusioned weekend.....

    If it's a small office they are in a tricky spot because they shouldn't tell you that a specific person tested positive but they need to tell you that you've had exposure to someone that was. Impossible to do both of those things in a small group. But item 2 is more important than item 1.

    I work 6 feet from the girl in question and if an announcement had been made that we had been exposed to someone there would have been no doubt who it was.

    Iím interested in seeing what happens with the coughing idiot from Thursday. Because EVERYBODY heard her. Iím interested to see how they try to cover up if she tests positive.

    But yeah they definitely should have advised that somebody tested positive immediately on Oct 7th.

    I felt sick to my stomach on Friday driving home. I canít believe I work for people who would lie about something like this.

    Mitch itís about liability. Thatís it.

    They have signs now outside of stores that waive liability for retailers if you go in. Thatís all they care about.

    I'm done with social distancing. I'll still wear my mask when going out just to avoid the confrontations, but I'm not hiding out at home anymore. Seven months is long enough, and obviously, I've been about the only fucking American doing it, based upon how every time I turn on the TV there is a group of 10,000+ people protesting something.

    Fuck it. I'm going full Sweden.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    I said I canít believe they lied about it and didnít notify us. I understand why they didnít. They didnít tell anybody because they didnít want their entire team going to get tested resulting in multiple employees not being at work for multiple days.

    I get what youíre getting and my company isnít exactly following the safety protocols to the letter but they wouldnít really be liable for anything if somebody in their office tested positive if they follow the protocol when somebody tests positive. You can go to the grocery store and get it. You can go to a restaurant and get it. Yes, you can get it from somebody in your office. Thatís not the companyís liability if theyíre following protocols outlined by the province.

    Theyíd be liable if they didnít notify employees, and went one further, lied about it and it resulted in other employees going about their day while potentially infected and infecting others.

    Which is exactly what my company did. They are required to tell us if we were in contact with somebody who had tested positive.

    There is no reason to hide at home. Once they had time to figure out what they were dealing with, the message should have been: "wear a mask, if you can work from then do that, and in general don't be careless". Everything should be open with rules in place. Governments are getting too cute. Give people information, shut down careless businesses and build health care capacity.
