  1. also I should add that I am not saying no one got covid by attending. I'm also not saying getting together in huge groups is a great idea during this all but Trump had rallies all year. What's the difference? Not saying either is right or wrong. People will do what they want in the US because we can. Most people will never change their mind on what went right or wrong this year so how about we just all say we agree to disagree and just try to make it out of 2020 alive and move on?
  2. I was personally at these peaceful protests in Philadelphia and I can promise you MAJORITY of people (I saw as I wondered through center city) had masks on. Again, I was not every single spot in Philly so yes media or social media coverage could have shown different. Plus anyone wo spits into each others faces is gross. pandemic or not, that's gross.
  3. To me, it's really not a big deal in the City. My life since March has basically been these exact guidelines. If you've been a half decent human who cares about friends, family, strangers, grandparents, the US, the world, these new guidelines starting Friday really don't make a huge impact.
  4. In the long run - who knows. I feel like healthcare costs are always in the fast lane. I handle the benefits for our company and BCBS notified us that they will be issuing a one-time medical premium relief credit for the month of December. We will not withhold medical insurance payroll deductions for any of our US employees in December. Which is nice for alot of our lower paid employees with families. That could be a few hundred back in their pockets. Even looking at our stats/claims over the past few months, its so odd compared to a normal year. We are just hoping it doesn't backfire when we
  5. I voted by mail because I wanted to. I absolutely was not afraid. All my closest friends who voted by mail also were not afraid. It was an OPTION that was provided. If the only option was voting in person...well that's what I would have done. But when you give options, people are allowed to decide what works best for them.
  6. we already made new plans for Thanksgiving - I refused to visit with 3 different families in 1 day. It's actually a nice excuse because usually we spend the day just driving between houses/families and its not very enjoyable. We also started talking about Christmas plans. Both my parents are high risk so I made it very clear I was not comfortable seeing a bunch of people for both holidays.
  7. I don't like to talk about politics. I'm really just talking about humans in general.
  8. I joined a few protests with friends in Philly and we all wore masks and we didn't loot. Our country (and world) need more kindness and decency but some people are just ignorant down to their core. Back to ski chat.
  9. The cities are laid out completely different. Downtown/center city Pittsburgh is mainly just businesses and some restaurants whereas center city philly is bustling. To go out and drink and explore nightlife in Pitt you have to take a stroll to surrounding areas. The stadiums are close to downtown so it makes for a great view. I have a lot of friends who stayed “out west” after college so I visit quite often. I don’t love Pittsburgh but I’m happy to go visit once in a while.
  10. Yeah kinda, we are trying to understand how it will work IF any employees are interested
  11. We just got the official work from our parent company that we will not be going back to the office for the foreseeable future. Which is what we expected. With schools being virtual we didn't want the pressure of some people working at the office while others had to stay home with kids. I still go in about once a week to stay on top of personnel files and some payroll items which is nice to get out of the house especially. I made it this long without a desk but I think its time to invest in one.. In other news, I got my hair done yesterday for the first time since February. I feel like a
  12. Oh really? Had no idea - I'm so out of the loop on school/education information. I'm sure in class will shut down pretty quickly. IEveryone in UCFSD has means to do virtual learning. Many of the kids probably have the nicest laptop on the market.
  13. Thanks! I still go into work about once a month right now for payroll purposes. Only essential employees have been allowed to go in at all. So really its been only 4-5 employees in randomly over the past 4 months so I felt safe. We will see going forward
  14. It will be interesting to see what happens with my offices reopening the office plans. As of now, we are still planning to open July 13th with some strict guidelines in place but with numbers on the rise again I don't see many people coming back to work. In fact, I do worry a bit since I have been on contact with my family. My parents are in their 60's and my mom has health issues and depends heavily on my Dad so I don't want either of them to get sick. I will probably limit my time at the office. Also, for those who I am not facebook friends with - I got engaged last week! my boyfriend
  15. I think its all good conversation - hearing different sides can make you a more well rounded thinker. I was only speaking about our company and how was respected our essential employees. Huge amount of respect for grocery store employees who dealt with craziness (and other essential jobs).
