Good luck...

Threaten to send them pictures of their teeth?

So you're free to travel around your own province and spread coronavirus around it, but not free to spread it into another province.

So how would that get rid of coronavirus?

Each province manages it their own borders. If you leave the borders you must quarenteen for 14 days. The assumption if everybody does that then there will be no virus coming in the province and it will die out.


But not sure why I am even trying to explain it to you. You are too stupid to understand.

Take care of yourself , ya hear ?!


Hope to; working in health care is a crap shoot usually anyway. I'm way down in the south but there's fear this already spread out of the northern region.


So despite everything we may end up back to square one.

So far though it's only the north that has the restrictions back in place.

Yes..... working in health care is crap shoot. Kind a glad I am retired from it..... even though I think of all of you still putting in the hours under these challenging circumstances. Your efforts are very appreciated.

We're a smaller hospital and honestly I didn't think we'd see any Covid here, but it was also a crap shoot considering the border with NS is fifteen minutes away.

Are they physically blocking roads going between north and south? If not, it is not and will not be contained.


I think the longer this goes on the less effective the measures will be. Already you see in every province signs of people being stupid and ignoring restrictions. I think the lockdown worked in doing what it was implemented to do. But it is not a long term strategy.

Not exactly sure at the north - though it's supposed to be the same - but at the NB/NS border there are patrol people there/RCMP or similar stopping vehicles to ask why they're crossing, turn them back if it's supposedly not for a legit reason and warn of a 14 day isolation if you're returning to NS. Some exceptions apply but from what I also understood, anyone in this area going to NS for say an appointment at their hospital or for some other legitimate reason has to go to those appointments only. Town police in Amherst were monitoring car license plates and fining people if they weren't anywhere but legit places. So anyone seen at a grocery story parking lot was getting a ticket.


I'm not sure what will happen now; lots of people are pretty PO'ed over what happened up North and now for us anyone coming in from that zone is to be treated as if they came from outside NB and is to be screened extra hard.
