there has been some "chatter" of the insurance companies requiring the vaccine or they won't cover COVID related health care. Not sure how that all shakes out with the ACA though.
I think that's an entirely reasonable policy so long as there arent any unintended readthroughs that I'm not considering.
Just hanging with some Jersey friends this weekend and they did wear their masks on and off all weekend. Went to see Yonder Mtn String Band and maybe 15 or so people I saw had masks on. Workers at businesses were but not really the public.It's interesting to read all these New England takes that in your states most people aren't wearing masks. Here in New Jersey it's still gotta' be >= 50% of people still wearing masks.
Definitely a good idea in flu season.I actually don't mind wearing it on a subway..probably would have been a good idea..even before covid!
I don't think it's going to work that way though. The legal bill from all the challenges will cost a lot more than the additional premium!I'd be curious if there are other situations where if you didn't get a certain vaccine that is "required" where they don't cover those health costs.
I'm all for it personally. Why should I have to pay a higher premium because someone thinks there is a microchip in the shot got Covid and cost the insurance company a ton of money.
Not all the sporting events or concerts require vaccination or a negative test. Actually, the majority of them do not.another false equivalency.
a classroom with 25 unvaccinated kids in close proximity for 7 hours a day 5 days a week is not the same thing as a stadium full of vaccinated adults for 3 hours 1 day, especially an outdoor one.
Oh, I agree. Kids don't have to worry about dying.
Yes, and according to the CDC more children died from the flu. My point is the number is so low that we don't change our lifestyles from it.

Most are from Canada May have more to do with itNot sure where to drop this, and its hardly skiing related, BUT...
the NHL is down to only 4 players that are unvaccinated. That's pretty amazing if you ask me. I'm not sure what the rules are, but by an large the NHL is a "younger" league than most of the other major sports league. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.
