Sometimes I have to hypnotize myself into a state of denial to keep from panicking:
"Here’s the truth: the pandemic is not over. It’s much worse than you have been led to believe. Unless you’ve spent the past several years reading scientific studies, it can be hard to convey just how wrong the public perception of COVID really is." /1

A while ago, someone I know started sending around links to the People's CDC—a coalition that styles itself as a model of what the CDC would look like if it actually **followed the science** on pandemic restrictions. I was fascinated. (1/x) https://t.co/NuzEW8Iedi

Your international antivax campaign is bearing copious fruit:
“More than a third of parents with children under 18—and 28% of all adults—now say parents should be able to decide not to vaccinate their children for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) to attend public schools, even if remaining unvaccinated may create health risks for others” https://t.co/UhdQanreqG

As a part of its new push, the administration is restarting the free at-home Covid-19 test program, permitting each American household to order up to four free tests this winter from COVIDTests.gov. It is also offering federal resources to local health departments, putting an extra focus on high-risk individuals including by providing a winter playbook for nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, and permitting nursing home staff to administer vaccinations.
Some advice: You’ll get a more accurate test if you swab your cheek next to your upper molars, under your tongue, the back of your throat, and THEN do your nostrils!
