    The 2 week Quarantine when home isn't an issue? I guess maybe not a worry. But for me that eliminates any travel right now.
    I think if companies allows WFH and you job function allows it, I can't see why you can't quarantine AND work at the same time.

    I was looking to head to London with my gf this August. But Covid.
    We are looking around October time and seeing if things change. UK opened up and did not require quarantine from specific countries. Canada was not on that list but Hong Kong was... wtf?

    Per capita, HK has 10x less infection than Canada. (0.3% vs 0.02%)

    As been next to US, I'm surprised EU didn't ban us by association.

    How are countries that have had zero deaths and almost zero cases not on the approved travel lists for Europe? Makes me wonder what the criteria is.

    Is there a trustworthy factors? Like I don't think I'll ever trust numbers from India/China/Phillipines/Thailand.

    Or is there a risk vs reward formula somewhere?

    Mongolia, for example, had a textbook perfect response that started back in JANUARY when every other country was brushing it off until March-ish. It's been so widely reported on that I don't get the sense they are fudging any numbers, especially since they were months ahead of most other countries. I just found it odd that they aren't allowed entry when other countries who have had a far worse response are no problem.

    Yes sir. Best card ever (for me anyway). Fingers crossed it doesn't go away or become garbage like Rogers did to their MasterCard effective June 1.

    Capital One even bailed me out of ~$12K fraudulent charges when my CC was stolen in a Vegas Strip Club. I don't know how many companies would do that, let alone believe me (because I was also there). I am a customer for life as long as they let me keep that card haha.

    I've also never been denied a claim or a perk (like price protection) on that card to date.
    I just got notification that the points are going down from 2% to 1.5% /debbiedowner

    Yeah, they started sending letters back in June. Still not a bad card but it had the shine taken off it for sure.

    I'll still probably stick with them because of how incredible their service is, at least until I find something dramatically better.

    I see that point. I don't feel too confident on HK/China reporting its stats vs Canada.

    Until July 1st, HK was reliable.

    Now, it's basically China after they passed that vague security law. It's a matter of time before reporting true infection number is a classified country secret and anyone saying anything CCP doesn't want you to know will get sent to vocational facilities.

    That's gonna be the US soon, they just changed the reporting so that info about beds and hospital capacity doesn't go to the CDC anymore but rather through the white House to 'streamline' reporting

    Was to be wed next month and honeymoon in November in Mexico. Not doing any of that, except for signing the documents with a commissioner. Hoping to have a fake ceremony, reception and dance next year but I'm starting to think we won't be any further ahead with Covid than we are now. See what happens.
