    Camping with Covid: How hard is it to holiday in a pandemic?

    Covid is out to sabotage the classic Kiwi holiday, with its tents, cabins, side-by-side caravans, evening beers around the barbecue, and young and old using shared kitchen and toileting facilities. Epidemiologists warn if we want to stay safe, then our Christmas holidays will have to look different this summer, with masks, vaccinations and social distancing. But if you’re asking yourself whether to proceed with your camping holiday, with unvaccinated under-12s running around, the specialists’ answer is, “yes … within limits”.

    Austin halted camping ban arrests due to COVID, but might revise soon

    In the lead-up to the May election, opponents of the ballot measure to reinstate Austin’s camping ban argued that it would be cruel for the city to begin jailing people who were unable to afford housing. Nearly six months since voters approved the ban, that has not happened. Not a single person has been arrested and booked into jail for sleeping in a prohibited area or for violating two related prohibitions, according to records from the city. But that day is likely coming. In an attempt to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in the Travis County Jail, criminal court

    School holiday camping trip becomes COVID nightmare

    Five Kyabram families and almost 30 people have been forced to isolate after a weekend camping trip in Moama turned into a COVID-19 disaster. The families stayed on separate camp sites at the Merool Holiday Park in Moama on Friday and Saturday night, September 24 and 25, and were not made aware of the positive case until the following Thursday. One member of the camping trip, who works at Goulburn Valley Health, was informed they were COVID positive, which threw the entire group into a spin. The group members were not informed of the positive test until four days after

    Twin Falls District Reports 308 Covid Cases This School Year

    As a parent with a kindergartener currently enrolled in the Twin Falls School District, we had to make the decision a few weeks ago on whether or not to home school, or put our child in a classroom while Covid-19 cases were again spiking. Just prior to the start of the 2021-2022 school year back in mid-August, we attended the open house for our son at a local elementary school. We fully intended on having him in the classroom, and interacting with his fellow peers. That option changed when we were informed the school was making masks optional, so we

    Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison hit back at criticism over his decision travel to Sydney on Father’s Day during a COVID lockdown. In an interview with Sky News Australia aired Tuesday, Morrison said there was a lot of “misinformation” doing the rounds and that there was no exemption required for him to travel to Sydney.  “I can understand people’s frustration, but I do think there has been a lot of misinformation about this,” Morrison said. “I live in Sydney.

    The Best Masks For Travel, Comfort And Safety In The COVID Pandemic

    If you plan on traveling any time in the foreseeable future, plan on wearing a mask. getty Masks are back, like it or not, while for travelers they never went away. All flights, and in most places any public transport, requires them, and so do many destinations both domestically and abroad, especially indoors. Even where they are not required, they are a very good idea even for those vaccinated, with increasing numbers of so called “breakthrough” infections, along with the social responsibility to protect the young and immunocompromised. For those who are unvaccinated and putting themselves and others at high
