Mitigation Measures

This article says that when Dr. Gustafson today talked to family doctors, she said several things which indicate a more laissez-faire attitude towards the pandemic. Contact tracing has already been scaled back, children with a sniffle can go to classes if they test negative, exposed vaccinated people do not need to isolate, and they might not recommend vaccinating kids under 12 even after Health Canada permits it.

The province has issued guidance on what qualifies for a medical exemption from vaccination requirements: not a whole lot. If you have had an anaphylactic response to ingredients in both mRNA and AZ vaccines, then you can get an exemption. If you have been certain kinds of sick related to COVID-19 (like MISC, COVID-19, or myocarditis), then wait until you get better. If you’ve had some allergic reactions, then consult with an allergist and/or get the other type of vax. If you had a really bad reaction to dose1, wait for guidance from the province.
