    Tx, Kyra. The mysterious "respiratory illness" is not the flu. @ucalgaryCHI tracks influenza in wastewater too – it is zero.GoA dumped this on our schools, where people mix indoors for 8 hrs/day, by prohibiting school masking policies even in outbreaks.https://t.co/PdmEoYLvYP pic.twitter.com/hmbLtYoBAF— Ziad 😷 Fazel 🇺🇦 (@ZiadFazel) September 22, 2022

And like so many weekends, we hold emergency meetings, try to "fix" things to create capacity, hoping that magically we will have the solution. That this time, we'll figure it out.— Neeja Bakshi (@NeejaB) September 11, 2022
