I use my phone on selfie mode, while looking in the mirror, to confirm. Works best with natural light in the room. After a couple tries I’ve figured out how to ‘feel’ where I need to go, and do two passes. Then check and clean up.

When I was using a #1 (I’ve switched to no guard at all) I figured out a good way to do my neck. Took a piece of rubber weather stripping, lined it up straight, and wrapped it around where I wanted my hair line. Pinching it tightly together at my nose. Then I just blindly ran my buzzer up to the line!
Once you have been at this a while, it's easy blind. Just use a Harry's to cueball it blind.
What is there to see? Go by feel.

I've taken a hiatus from Covid news and updates. Couple questions:

Am I deleting the Alberta tracing app? I gather it's useless now.

Are we all downloading the Covid Alert app? Or is that useless in Alberta too?

Also are there any official updates on when gen pop will get vaccinated?

Alberta's is useless.
Canada's is useless if Alberta continues to refuse to enable it.
No updates that I'm aware of. The timeline is still "everyone who wants to be vaccinated will be vaccinated by Septemberish" — hopefully they are being cautious in their estimate and this date can move up slightly.

Factors that could move it up
- Other vaccines come on line. J&J I think is driving towards late Feb approval. If a single shot one could get approved that would be amazing
- Not everyone is going to want the vaccine, including right away. So those of us that do want it and willing to get it right away - should (in theory) get it sooner.

Ya I think/hope the Feds are sandbagging a bit. Keeping expectations low then taking all the credit when you easily exceed them is politics 101 (less cynically it also makes sense not to get people's hopes up for life going back to normal, especially when you don't control the supply chain)

The timing is really going to come down to the other vaccines. If the J&J and Oxford vaccines get approved the timeline would probably be more like mid-summer for everyone to get at least their 1st dose. If they don't, or if the supply is light through Q2, then September is probably accurate.

And supply disruptions are still possible. Pfizer just announced delays out of their European facility for the next 3-4 weeks, so any country who gets doses from there (Canada being one) is going to see fewer doses than promised for the next while. And Johnson & Johnson was supposed to have millions of doses already made in anticipation of their approval, but it sounds like that never happened. Now they're saying they're about 2 months behind in their production schedule and will only have a few million doses by the end of February.

Should we really be looking at vaccinated + recovered as a percent as the population in tracking how close countries are to being herd-immunized?

On that metric, I would have to think the USA is doing well as they are vaccinating quickly plus getting huge infection numbers.

North/South Dakota already look like they are close to being there. They have the highest proportion of the their populations with confirmed cases, and North Dakota is a leader for vaccinations. Both are seeing cases fall off quite dramatically. South Dakota, especially, is a bit of "freedom state", so I doubt it's their covid measures making the difference relative to other states. They have some restrictions, but they also have a non-masker as a governor.

It's likely also an affect of having more rural citizens and smaller cities, but that's likely to play into what level of immunity you need prior to achieving herd immunity, with more rural places requiring a lower level of immunity.

I think it's too early to really see any effects of vaccination on rates of spread in the US. Even in the fastest vaccinating states, probably only about 1% or so of the population has any kind of effective immunity from getting the shot. And in areas with high infection rates, a not insignificant number of those who've been vaccinated would already have natural immunity (unless they're excluding previously infected people, but I'm not sure if that's happening anywhere to any real degree). So tracking immunized + infected might not be that indicative, since eventually you'll be counting a lot of people twice in the hardest hit areas.

Though I do think most of the upper Midwest has hit a sort of equilibrium between their immunity levels and their population interaction/mobility. Infection levels have been dropping for about 1.5-2 months there and I agree with the above that it's likely not government measures driving that.

Today's figures. Good to see the test rate still under 6 percent.

- 785 new cases
- 13 new deaths (total 1,402)
- 13,575 tests completed (PR: 5.8 per cent)
- 12,189 active cases
- 796 in hospital, 124 in ICU
- 101,779 recoveries
