    We are going to try again. Fenway is crushed and I don’t have the stamina for this stuff anymore.

    We need to move forward. But realize we can’t ignore our new reality.

    What has been tearing us apart stops now. Done. Not debatable.

    We can still discuss Covid. But tightly held to reputable updates .
    That info could be important here. Data, Openings, MBTA news, Airport, Uber, groceries, day care, etc.....

    This will be a guiding principle to start in regard to Covid and demonstrations:

    We're treating it the same as any other political discussion. It's not permitted unless it is directly related to hockey. If a player. owner, hockey media or some well known hockey personality makes a comment that's fair grounds for a thread. Some guy with a twitter account who likes to talk about hockey, isn't. If the thread becomes a partisan political debate it may be closed. Posters warned, thread banned or removed where necessary.

    Local businesses reopens, schools, current things including demonstrations..but..NON POLITICAL - all good.

    Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
    Via Post or PM.
    That includes flaming the Moderator Team or their activity.

    Actions will be at the sole discretion of the Moderation Team.

    If anyone feels they cant abide by this they are best off not posting.

    We all came here for one thing in common . Our hockey club. It is what bound us in good time and bad. Let it be so again.

    For those that want to discuss and debate other current Covid related things please go here:

    Just got the official, unofficial word that we go back on July 6th. Waiting on an email from our HR about the specifics, but not overly confident this is going to go smoothly at all.

    For the people that have already gone back, what actions have your companies taken to try to ensure your safety? I asked about temp checks, and my direct manager said he doubted it.

    They are just changing the name and packaging. They have no plans to change the actual product.

    Went to HR about my issue. Even tho he handled the last one with a supervisor im a bit more nervous about this one and maybe some repercussions. However I am one of like 5-6 people who have issues with this supervisor. I just hope the others talk.

    The things I'll never take for granted again.

    Being able to get a haircut
    Pedicures. Sweet, sweet pedicures.
    Sitting at a dark bar with the AC cranking and a mindless game on the TV making small talk with a bartender

    I hear you on the bar and pedicures.

    I miss the days where a few quick texts led to getting cheap seats for a Sox game or dinner and drinks outside near the water.

    I guess the grand summer plans my friends and I had will have to wait until next year.

    I work in a small machine manufacturing plant.

    I've been working all along, but about 2/3 of us were temporarily laid off.

    Most of them came back after 6 weeks or so.

    We wear masks......when we're near other people.

    We try not to be near other people.

    We're more conscious of keeping the bathrooms and break room clean. We all have coffee and lunch separately.

    That's about it!
