There is no shortage of toilet paper, disinfectant wipes etc. in or area Mukhang pera. That seems to be a 'city people' thing and it may be my imagination but it also seems to be a Costco customer issue more so than any other retail outlets. There is no Costco near us, just normal supermarkets and they all have plenty of TP on the shelves. Does that say anything about what kind of people shop at Costco? I don't know, I've never been in one to see who shops there.I am putting myself in self-imposed exile starting today. I will expect soon to receive my 2 weeks' pay from government. No medical test required.
Better check the toilet paper supply first. All good. None there as usual. No money, trees or anything else wasted on that account. I wonder, does all that stuff end up in our lakes and oceans? Why the present tp wars, such as discussed here?: https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/video-covid-19-fears-spur-apparent-toilet-paper-dash-at-langley-costco
Good that some common sense prevails elsewhere:

Well doggone. You had to bring up the Karma thing. Bad joss. Maybe I'll have to reconsider my quarantine plan. Not pass go. Not collect $200, or whatever the elves in Ottawa might hand out.I presume of course that you are not serious about a claim for yourself and were only 'floating' the question of abusers taking advantage of the situation. I have no doubt some lowlifes will indeed do so. Any lowlife taking a vacation and falsely claiming 'self-isolation for Covid-19', will no doubt get his or her due in due time I'm sure. It's called Karma.
There really ought to be criminal penalties for this. People will die because of careless self-quarantine.There's already been cases in the US where people are ignoring the self-quarantine and in one case attending a business event and another a father-daughter dance.
No experience with EI but this link says otherwise EI sickness benefitsTo collect EI the employer would have to submit the layoff documents and workers would have to qualify to collect it.
Employment Insurance (EI) sickness benefits can provide you with up to 15 weeks of financial assistance if you cannot work for medical reasons. You could receive 55% of your earnings up to a maximum of $573 a week.
You must get a medical certificate to show that you’re unable to work for medical reasons. Medical reasons include illness, injury, quarantine or any medical condition that prevents you from working.
If people are infected but what about all those whose workplaces are closed down due to the virus ?
I knew we would get you in the long run. EI is a tax :excitement:I have to say, i actually approve of the Trudeau plan, at least the aspects related to EI.
I think reviving workshare is great, and offering EI for quarantines is also good.
I'm glad they're looking into other issues, but its' a great start.
FYI, I've been on workshare before, basically there is some (not too much) paperwork.
Lets say you work 40 hours normally, but only 20 due to COVID-19 related drop in work.
Company pays you for 20 hours, and EI picks up the other 20 hours at 55% or whatever the rate is.
IMO it's a great plan and hits a good balance, also since it's an existing program, it should be able to ramp up quite rapidly.
I expect in this case, the quarantine certificate will be relatively easy to get, the fatality rate for at risk populations is terrible.
Get me how?I knew we would get you in the long run. EI is a tax :excitement:
