In Quebec we search for teacher because school doesn’t have enough staff for the baby-boom we have right now. Just last year in my little city they build a school for kids and we are gonna need a new high school very soon.

There is a worsening teacher shortage across the U.S. too.  I would love to move to Canada, but realistically, I wouldn't want to find a different job, sell my house, or move that far away from my family.  Plus, I bet I would need to know French to teach in Quebec.

Well, from the looks of it I'm not going to be doing anything for awhile. Vegas opened up our freaking waterpark today and of course people aren't distancing or being careful. Meanwhile we're spiking. Florida is looking really bad too. 2020 sucks LOL

Yikes!

Illinois is on track to move into Phase 4 on Friday, which is good news because it allows for gatherings of up to 50 people... meaning as long as we don't backtrack, schools should be able to open in the fall.  Fingers crossed.  Of course, the idiots here are still giving our governor a hard time, not realizing that the reason we're still moving forward with fewer cases while other states are spiking is because of how he's handled things.  Even Chicago meets the criteria to move forward, which is awesome!

I actually have plans to go out for dinner, drinks, and trivia with a few friends tomorrow!  At a real restaurant!  Outdoors, of course.  I haven't been out to eat in over three months, so I'm looking forward to it.  I think restaurants will be able to open for indoor dining (with reduced capacity, party limits, and tables six feet apart) after Friday.

I'm very jealous LOL. Some stuff opened back up in Phase 2 but so many are just being careless I decided to wait it out and I'm glad I did. Cause man it got bad fast. We went too fast and now we're suffering the consequences for it.

I hope you guys don't have to backtrack in Vegas, but I guess it's better to shut it down if it continues to get worse than let it spiral out of control.  I know this is especially hard on places that rely so much on tourism, which is why Florida's in the same boat.  (Also, Florida's full of idiots. There's a reason "Florida Man" is a thing...)

Over here the level has changed meaning that shops have now re-opened with social distancing measures and schools are set to go back next week, but only part time.  I don't think pubs and restaurants are opening for another 2-3 weeks.  England tends to open up before the rest of the UK, so we'll see.  As the shops only opened yesterday, I'm avoiding until it all calms down.

Enjoy your meal and drinks out Julie, that will be lovely :)  I can't wait until I can do that with my friends, not been out with them since the beginning of March.

Have fun, Julie! That should be nice being around your friends. I think I’m still avoiding going to restaurants or beauty salons for awhile. I have also been postponing going to the eye doctor or getting bloodwork done.

Pretty much everything is opening up here. I feel like we’re moving too fast now.

Even if some Americans wanted to move to Canada, I don’t think they’d take us lol

I don't think places like Canada, Australia and New Zealand take just anyone do they? You have to have a skill they want, which leaves me in Wales lol

Yeah, it’s definitely not that easy. When my sister moved to Canada, she really couldn’t do anything because they wouldn’t approve a work visa for her because they didn’t feel like her skill set was essential, so she actually had to commute to Buffalo for work. In the end she decided to just move back to the US. If Trump gets re-elected I’m sure there might be a surge of people trying to cross the border. Trudeau might have to build a wall lol
