Wait?? So the PCR tests being run up til this point couldn’t differentiate between the flu and Covid?


No. Two separate tests were run on a single sample, flu and Covid. Now it can be accomplished with one test.

As does reading with comprehension.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Check your sources before freaking out.

Here is the full paragraph in question.

Quote
In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

I can't speak for forgetful, but the states that made bars among the last to reopen during the pre-Delta COVID-19 waves made the argument that bars are uniquely positioned to spread the virus.

Lots of people in cramped quarters, often speaking loudly or even yelling right into each others' faces because bars tend to be loud environments (music, multiple conversations, dancing, hookup attempts, general din). As the night goes on, people get more drunk. So more yelling, lowered inhibitions, etc. The latter is why as bars gradually were allowed to reopen, they faced mandatory closing times like 10 or 11 pm.

The above is also why some states allowed breweries with taprooms to be open while not letting bars reopen. Some saw this as hypocritical, but patrons at taprooms tend to exhibit significantly different behaviors than those at bars/clubs.

And that all made sense when we thought the primary mode of transmitting the virus was through respiratory droplets.  From what I understand being that it is now known to be airborne it doesn’t matter if you’re in an environment with yelling, singing, etc.

It's fine, you can see none her replies read the release either.  Not surprising though.  Confirmation bias is a hell of a drug.

Sigh.

From the very top of the CDC site (updated July 14, 2021):

COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth. In some circumstances, they may contaminate surfaces they touch. People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected.

COVID-19 is spread in three main ways:

++ Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus.

++ Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze.

++ Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.


https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/how-covid-spreads.html

In other words, a bar is about the best place an unvaccinated human being can go if he or she wants to get COVID-19.

Indeed. You sometimes work so hard to spread misinformation, I imagine it must be exhausting for you to have to deal with facts.

Oh, and here's the top of a column by the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne that I thought you might like:

Bad news is leading to at least a bit of good news: The surge of the covid-19 delta variant seems to have lit a fire under many Republican politicians. As the virus spreads largely in GOP regions with low vaccination rates, leaders of a party where anti-vax sentiment has run rampant have started sounding the alarm: Not getting vaccinated really can kill you.

One of the most unequivocal statements came from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “These shots need to get in everybody’s arm as rapidly as possible,” he said last week, adding a swipe at those pushing falsehoods about vaccines, who happen to include many in his own party:

“I want to encourage everybody . . . to ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.”

As Republican pollster Whit Ayres notes, McConnell, who endured polio as a child, has always embraced the power of vaccination. More surprising was a vaccine plug from Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, a longtime baiter of federal authorities whose reelection campaign is selling merchandise mocking Anthony S. Fauci, the White House health adviser.

Yes, even the man peddling “Don’t Fauci My Florida” T-shirts seems to have noticed that over the past two weeks, 20 percent of all the nation’s new covid-19 cases were in his state.

“If you look at the people that are being admitted to hospitals, over 95 percent of them are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated at all,” DeSantis said Wednesday. “And so these vaccines are saving lives. They are reducing mortality.”

The pro-vaccine message is even reaching the heart of Trump country. “Folks [are] supposed to have common sense,” Alabama Republican Gov. Kay Ivey said on Thursday. “But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.” You might say the scolding was overdue: Ivey leads the country’s least vaccinated state.

We should cheer all Republicans joining the fight against the anti-vaccine undertow in their party — and be especially appreciative of Republican officials who have been there from the beginning.

Interesting story from the BBC.
A marketing company registered in the UK and Russia has been offeringto pay social media influencers to spread false claims about the Pfizer vaccine killing people. In some cases, the influences accepted and spread the fake news. The company claimed to be acting on behalf of an anonymous client.

My wife just told me that the night nurse on one floor at the children's hospital here actually was bragging to a patient's mother that she was unvaccinated, that she's been living a "normal" life with nights out on the town and everything, and that she "can't wait till we don't have to wear these stupid masks anymore."

Talk about an idiot. It's idiotic enough to refuse to be vaccinated, but bragging about it to the mother of a hospitalized child? That's a special kind of idiot.

The mother, whose child is immuno-comprised, complained the next day to the nurse's supervisor and insisted that her child only be seen in the future by vaccinated personnel. The nurse was "officially reprimanded" but otherwise not punished.

This is North Carolina. There ain't no nurse's union here. Unions are few and far between at all.

No, only idiots who would put children's lives in danger are idiots.

She's an effen nurse who works with immuno-compromised kids, and she's bragging about not being vaccinated. So yes, she's an idiot.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, candidate for governor of Arkansas, got vaccinated several months ago after being ‘reassured’ by President Trump getting vaccinated  and is now encouraging residents of Arkansas to get the ‘Trump vaccine’. Blames President Biden, VP Harris, Dr Fauci and the media for vaccine hesitancy.
