COVID-19 in summer 2022

Despite what you might think based on the behaviour of governments and many Ontario residents, the COVID pandemic continues: ‘It’s the real deal’: Doctors warn about future wave fuelled by Omicron variants.

I am continuing much as I have for the last two years: mostly going out only for groceries and exercise walks, avoiding group events and wearing a mask when I do attend, and generally not trying to get sick at a time when illness could interrupt my dissertation completion and wedding travel plans, not to mention threaten vulnerable family members in August.

My advice: get vaccinated, keep masking, and ignore the pushy folks who will try to bully you into taking fewer precautions because they don’t want to follow them.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

We recommend that anyone who has been exposed to the virus and has symptoms isolates for five days, then uses daily lateral flow tests to safely leave isolation when two consecutive daily tests are negative,” said lead researcher Ajit Lalvani in a press release.
