    I say supposedly free region for covid, but let’s make the confirmation in a day or so. It’s not at all surprisingly so. It’s like we waited our turn, now here it is. Hopefully not, but let’s get realistic. What concerns me is not that we are prepared by practicing the protocol of prevention, but that it’s cry wolf, and will sneak in, like an intruder 3 o’clock in the morning. Common sense is gone out of professionals and the general public alike. It’s all about the protocol, but missing out on simple things. Wear your mask when you’re alone, let your guard down while in public. It’s all messed up, in what people are doing, and authorities are more confused than ever. It’s going to be the ones with a solid common senses that will be fine. It could even be your grandmother or father, common sense people , common sense.

    The Nunavik Regional Health and social service board putting out conflicting messages. In the same sentence as saying there is an exposure, saying also no cases. People are confused. I think it narrows down to the ones at the board putting out these messages of confusion. It’s untrained workers doing that. It’s the same untrained workers speaking on local fm from time to time, not knowing what they are talking about.
