Josie posted a picture of Kelly visiting Hazel in the NICU maskless, a day or two after Alyssa was sharing stories of Kelly gallivanting all over town with a bunch of people. They obviously don't care about that sort of thing.

The DOCTORS were pictured holding Jadon maskless. Out of 6 doctors/nurses, only 1 wore a mask. Bates are nuts, but the whole hospital staff seems to have forgotten covid.

Aren't hospitals still taking COVID seriously though?  I wonder if this actually means that Kelly is vaccinated?  I can't imagine a hospital actually allowing a non-vaccinated individual (especially that isn't the child's mother or father) into the NICU without a mask.  That can't be a thing yet, can it?  

Most doctors and nurses are maskless in that hospital. There are pictures and IG stories that show it. I can't understand that!

Damn I didn't see that. That's crazy to me. I can't imagine putting a NICU baby at risk like that.

Has it occurred to any of you that all the hospital staff are almost certainly vaccinated? Do you think we should go on wearing masks forever even once vaccinated? COVID religion is just as anti-science as regular religion. And as morally superior and smug.

I am vaccinated and I work at a hospital. We still have to wear masks because it’s a hospital. They don’t want us to spread something to patients. At some point the masks will stop but masks have always been worn when a person working wasn’t feeling good. Because covid is spread the most from asymptomatic people they don’t want to take any chances.

We're not talking about going to the grocery story unmasked, we're talking about medically fragile newborns... And you can still catch and pass on COVID even with the vaccine. Not a big deal in most places, but seems like an unnecessary risk to take in a NICU.

And while I'm sure that the doctors and nurses are probably vaxxed, I'm less confident that Kelly Jo or most of the Bates are. Although who knows, they could surprise me.

While I do find it strange that hospital workers in the NICU are mask-less, I was under the impression that the part I bolded wasn't true. I am fully vaccinated, and I thought that science has shown (at least so far) that if you are fully vaccinated, you are unable to spread it. I'm not trying to start a debate, I just know there is a lot of false information going around, and I want to be clear that I personally understand any ramifications that I take by going mask-less as a fully vaccinated person.

It takes two weeks for the vaccine to fully work so you can catch it during that time. You can also catch it after, it’s a very low chance and if you get it you won’t get as sick.

According to this CDC page: "Vaccinated people could potentially still become infected and spread the virus to others." The chances are much lower than in unvaccinated people but the risk is still there.

Isn't it a federal mandate or something that you need to wear your mask in hospital/healthcare settings? Like that is one of the few places you need to wear one regardless of your vaccination status. Also besides Covid, their immune systems are fragile so I would want my kid to be protected regardless?

Im hoping masks stay and become a more ubiquitous part of our culture the way they have been in Asian countries. They were always normal in hospital settings, and especially stricter settings like a NICU. And it's not just about who is or isn't vaccinated but promoting an overall public health culture of good habits. Hopefully we all come out of this pandemic with better habits than before because there will always be both vulnerable individuals and many diseases.

Interesting. So the shot I got, that was just a run of a mill thing they did during my pregnancies because of my negative blood RH, wasn't an option for her.  And now Hazel is battling jaundice.  Seems like they're treating her just like they do regular jaundice with the bright lights.  I feel like my son (I only had one who needed the treatment) was under the lights for 1-2 days. 

It's because Josie doesn't have an Rh problem.  There are other blood factors that can cause an incompatibility and there are no vaccines or medications for those.  Hazel could have ABO incompatibility or another factor such as S or K or even multiple incompatibilities.  All of mine did. The standard treatment is with bili lights.  The blood incompatibility jaundice can be much more severe than standard newborn jaundice and that's why the NICU and a longer time.  Sometimes ABO is so severe as to need a blood transfusion.

Especially since aerosol scientists like Linsey Marr who said early 2020 that Covid was airborne think that all respiratory viruses spread to a certain degree through aerosols. They say as with Covid viruses like influenza are spread by people who don‘t have symptoms yet. So yes I hope masks will become more normal especially in crowded indoor settings like public transportation.

Hopefully that incorrect medical canard about droplet transmission will finally die.  I'll be mask wearing at selected places for what may be the rest of my life.  As long as the hospital where I get my monthly treatment requires masking, I'll be masking in places like stores where aerosol transmission is easy.  If nothing else I'll avoid a few colds and some flu exposure. Masks are required for visiting the long term care facilities here and may become permanent.  That can only help keep the residents safer overall.

I believe the only federal mandate is on public transportation at this time. I also anticipate mask use for me personally in the future, especially when traveling or when feeling sick. Again, seeing how masks have been used in hospitals for ages, I'm very very surprised that they would be mask-less in the NICU at all, let alone still during Covid.

@front hugs > duggs cdc also includes healthcare settings unless you are in a private room but there are hospitals in Texas who have gotten rid of it and I wouldn't be surprised if Tennessee had pockets of hospitals who were also done with masks since they never had a mandate to begin with.

 

and it's so weird people I see on twitter are throwing fits on vaccinated people still wearing masks. I personally am and keep mine on indoors when I don't know but it's been so nice not having asthma attacks, allergies, colds, etc. So I want to keep it because my life has been SO nice haha.

I’m fully vaxed but still wear mine.  I sort of assume that people still wearing them in Texas are vaxed and those who aren’t... arent vaxed and never wore them to begin with.

No one in my local hospital wore masks before covid. Not the doctors, nurses or staff. No one at all. Maybe in the ICU, but I wasn't there so I couldn't say.

I only remember doctors/nurses pulling out masks in the past during flu season.  Otherwise they were unmasked here all the time. I wear mine in large public gatherings still even though I'm vaccinated.

Yeah, I feel like nurses and doctors only wore masks in surgery or vulnerable situations. I had a preemie and I don't remember anyone being masked. Maybe when we were at the children's hospital.

Oh dear. 

anyway... Our school district (NC) never resumed normal school this year, the last 6 weeks was a very abbreviated 2 days on, 3 off and most students remained virtual. When we start back in the fall (depending on the DELTA variant) our kids will still be required to mask up. I'm good with that, and our county has a very good vax rate.

Hazel still looks pretty jaundiced in Josie’s latest pic of her. I hope she gets fully well soon.

I gather you've never visited an urban area in East Asia.

I lived for years in major cities in China and I'm positive I've traveled through more other parts of Asia than you. But sure, put me in whatever ideological box allows you to dismiss my views.

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.

      Started prednisolone tablets today because the asthma inhaler isn't enough. Now I have a sore throat and feel like I have a cold coming.  Need the tablets because breathing isn't an optional body function.  Really don't need the tablets if I have an infection brewing.

      My husband commented this morning about how nice the weather is after a cold front moved in last night. Before I could stop him, he asked out loud if I thought this meant an early fall for us.
      That's like when you live up north and start talking about an early spring...
      Be careful, the weather gods are always listening.

      Grew up fundie-adjacent. My mother called herself a recovering fu**tamendalist, & she was not given to swearing. Thankfully she raised me as free of religious weirdness as she was capable. Her mother is all the regressive things -- racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic, ableist, fundamentalist Protestant nonsense, all of it, & longing for a golden past that never existed.
      I'm an atheist with a bit of an obsession about fundies, particularly of the Christian varieties cuz that's what I'm surrounded by. I've been reading this forum for well over a decade now & finally decided to make an account.
      Thanks for having me here.
