Peds ICU is full in Oregon. Please SIGN to tell Governor Brown to use masks, tests, and other measures to STOP the spread. Crisis standards of care are dangerous to patients and cause HC worker burnout.

I don't want to be alarmist but the state of Oregon has 50 PICU beds, for the entire state. Currently, all 50 PICU beds are occupied. It's November 23rd. The math does not bode well.

@kenicemobley Years ago, when I was trying to get pregnant, I went to the supermarket to grab a test. It was behind a lock, and I remember the woman who sold it to me said she hoped I got the result I wanted. I thought that was so nice and it stuck with me.

@roarkka @AShihipar @JohnMFaught But children under 5 aren't eligible for the vaccine. And kids under 2 can't even mask. They don't make N95s small enough for under 5s. They talk like everyone can get those two shots, but they can't. Mass infection of children doesn't get the scrutiny that the vaccine does.

@AbraarKaran And if everyone ELSE on a crowded bus is wearing an N95, then a baby too young to vaccinate or mask is safer. So is a preschooler who can't wear an N95 b/c they don't fit or can't or won't wear a mask perfectly. The spread overall is less, everywhere so schools can stay open etc.

@POTUS Former teacher here with expertise in K-12 assessment. Research shows indoor air quality improvements are an amazingly cost-effective way to boost test scores. Fewer sick days & fewer days with subs = more learning. #ImmunizeUnder5s #COVIDisAirborne Start with preschools!

@RobinD444 @vet_dot @myrabatchelder The latest strategy in the UK has been "maybe its dogs" no explanation, just some of the children have dogs. Vets don't get it. Israel has been the most straightforward in saying all the cases had Covid 3.5 months before and that is the common denominator.

@drvox I became a mom in 2016. Oh my! Misogyny and the outrages our society inflicts on mothers. But I love my girls so much and can be in the moment w them + mostly I am too damn tired. I think rage isn't unhealthy so much as suppressing it. Suppressing our rage is what is killing wm.

@1goodtern Those of us who mask regularly have tried a variety of masks to find what works. I hate that we are 3+ years into this and don't have fit testing widely available to anyone who wants it and subsidized/free masks so ppl can try diff ones to see what fits. I prefer my duck ones.

@Crest @slpng_giants Crest, please pull your ads from FOX where Corey Lewandowski just mocked a 10 year old girl with Downs Syndrome ripped from her mother. Is that what you stand for?

@farid__jalali Dogs, really? How are dogs supposed to be responsible for this? They are all good dogs.

@exceptionalfood 5 sets of parents signed the letter, about 1/3 to half the families. I suspect 30% is the threshold to get policies changed. The letter was very nice, kind and clear about what was needed and why. But as I used to say when I did organizing work: speak softy & carry a big list.

@MarkWKlineMD1 Good thing the CDC is thoughtful enough to "recommend" children not be punished for wearing a mask to protect themselves and others. I really think if we are "personal choice"ing a pandemic there needs to be a masked option, ie. masked 2nd grade that parents/teachers can opt into

@RepAdamSchiff I hope you feel better soon! Please ask the FDA and CDC to approve the vaccine for kids under 5 so I can protect my family too. And if you get paxlovid or evushield, please fight for funding so that people who aren't in congress can get them too.

@dreamoforgonon Used for the Czar's draft, I suspect? My maternal grandpa's family paid to trade names with another family to avoid the draft. The draft was intended to eradicate Jewish culture, a bit like boarding schools for indigenous Americans.

@Randall87454048 I'll add that I believe every person you don't spread it to matters. And every person they don't spread it to matters. So small things like masking can have a world of impact even if the protection isn't 100%.

@sarahradz_ @Basketlade Yes. My kids haven't figured out it is the same internet everywhere. My computer has certain things, her fathers diff ones. Even 5 yo still believes there isn't Daniel Tiger on mom's computer. Wonder how long I can maintain that.

@Nicole_Lee_Sch I learned to never say UTI to drs. I say kidney infection instead. That puts them on the right flow chart to get me blood work (white cell count) in addition to the urine culture. I hate that we have to know all this. And that

@wsbgnl I work in the semiconductor industry. We can purify air to 100 times cleaner than an operating room to reduce defects on millions of dollars of microchips. PPE is that last solution, after engineering & admin controls. And we learned that doing things at scale makes it cheaper

@AngryBlackLady 59% of people who have abortions are already parents and much of the reason they choose abortion is financial. They can't afford another kid. Anyone who doesn't support paid family leave, universal health care, universal childcare and preschool should not call themselves pro life

@ColinDotNet 3) You know how you kept thinking you were going back to the office soon so it didn't make sense to get the ergonomic home chair? Emergency remote schooling was like that too. People didn't choose it or prepare for it as a long term thing. Teachers weren't really trained for it.

So now that #polio is spreading in the US, should children under 4 be getting shots on the accelerated CDC schedule for kids traveling to a country where polio is spreading? @DrDadSays @PTF_org @MamaWeasleyy @yannotyam #ImmunizeUnder5s @DrKate4Kids @AcadPeds @abmakulec

@ImmunizeUnder5s @SAHWFHmom @riteaid @Walgreens @cvspharmacy @HEB @Walmart @kroger @TogetherWeMask What about masked hours in the mornings? Like when we used to have special shopping hours in grocery stores early in the pandemic for elderly people? Why can't we have that for our toddlers?
