I’ve always dreamed of taking a class with Roy and visiting the tool store while there. Today those dreams were crushed. I for one will not be taking the chi-com cocktail jab and so I guess this is the first of many things that I’ll be excluded from going forward.

Pretty depressing.

From his email:

COVID-19 and the Tool Store: The tool store will remain closed to walk-ins for the time being. There are a lot of people who deserve to be ahead of me in line for their vaccinations. The store will reopen after the recommended time period after I have received my shots. I will require proof of vaccination to come in the store, no exceptions. Masks will be required until the coast is well and truly clear. 95% sounds good but that leaves 1 in 20 susceptible to a serious illness. That can be a person a day in the store. My Masters Degree project was with the C.D.C. and I worked at NIH for 31 years. I may have learned something. Please stay healthy and get your shots when available.

Considering the cost in lives this pandemic has caused, I have no sympathy for you.

Aw thanks, that’s really nice of you to say.

Seems like this is set out to be political.

First notice of this type I’ve seen. Expected it, honestly.

Same Smitty, and I’m with you. I figured as soon as I saw they were issuing “Covid-19 Vaccination Record Cards”, that we would end up in “proof of vaccination to enter” scenarios soon enough.

Bummer that the tool shop will remain closed, but it’s their right to feel safe however they need to.

I predict a good business printing vaccination cards. Could be the same people that printed all the extra ballots in the dark of the night.

Agree 100%. The local University required the flu shot to attend this year (negative Covid test also required for campus access for students, faculty, and staff). I suspect the Covid vaccine will be also required once available.

I suspect some employers will require it.

Yeah I agree. I didn’t however, care for the tone of the email.

Yeah I think it will be required many places. Places that used to let people in with runny noses and coughs are now requiring a vaccine.

I understand TS, it makes sense. While I don’t necessarily disagree with your assessment of the email, I wasn’t really commenting on anything around that since people tend to get touchy around politicized issues like that lol

Eh, I’ve never understood the whole we don’t discuss politics here attitude of places ya know.

Politics infiltrate every aspect of life and hobbies. The discussion should be welcomed.

Who really cares if a topic on here devolved into a political shit show with name calling or whatever? Really, who cares. So what. I don’t get it, never have.

TraditionallySpeakin,

My 10th class at the Woodwrights School was canceled in April 2020. I was disappointed, but glad that they were serious about MY safety and their own safety.

I will sign up for the same class as soon as it is offered again and I am properly vaccinated.

The school is a FANTASTIC experience. I highly recommend it!

I will stand in line for as long as necessary to get my vaccine against COVID!

Your choice, your loss!

I can’t help but think that in the end you will have lost more than me my friend.
