Religious Gatherings

There are three churches which have been suing BC for not letting them gather to worship. Their basic argument is, “why is it okay to shop for balloons when it’s not okay to worship?” (Spoiler: because you don’t spend an hour shopping for balloons and you don’t sing or chant while you are doing it.)

Today, the churches got a variance to the Provincial Orders which allowed them to have outdoor services, with masks and distancing, of 25 people.

Vaccine Prioritization

In the UK, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization has recommended that the vaccine priority be based just on age. They say that trying to figure out by occupation would be too complicated and slow things down. (In other words, BC’s prioritization scheme is a good one.)
