NBA Anti-Vaxxers Are Pushing Around the League–It’s Working - Rolling Stone: “‘The NBA should insist that all players and staff are vaccinated or remove them from the team,’ NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tells Rolling Stone. ‘There is no room for players who are willing to risk the health and lives of their teammates, the staff and the fans simply because they are unable to grasp the seriousness of the situation or do the necessary research. What I find especially disingenuous about the vaccine deniers is their arrogance at disbelieving immunology and other medical experts. Yet, if their child was sick or they themselves needed emergency medical treatment, how quickly would they do exactly what those same experts told them to do?’”
It would be really nice to see all pro sports make this a requirement to play, but they won’t. All they care about is the all mighty dollar, and pissing off their star players is not something they have the guts to do.
At WillowTree most folks are working from home. There are still folks going to the office because they need the interaction but it’s like a ghost town.
I really believe any reasonable company would require vaccinations to come back to the office. That statement goes for WillowTree as well.
COVID has been so life changing. It seems to be endemic now. I’m not sure that it is but it feels like we’re going to have to live with flare ups forever.
Being vaccinated is our best hope to tamp it down to a smolder.
