« on: April 19, 2022, 11:35:11 AM »
When do you think Dan will shut it down? It says temporary in the description. Maybe we should add a poll

What happens to active threads there? Endemic COVID still will have lots to discuss, outbreaks/variants, vaccine and treatment news, long-COVID news and treatments etc. etc.

Move everything to GD/JS/etc as appropriate.

Once COVID is not a daily thing there is no need for a dedicated board to remind us of the bad times.

Move everything to Politics.

FTFY :D

But I don't think this is going away anytime soon unless all countries suddenly decide to open up and treat COVID as a seasonal virus.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

You prefer reminders all over? :P

Leave it where it is.
When the discussions die out, threads won't be popping up.
My favorite cause: cssy.org

I hope people realize my post was tongue in cheek. It says temporary board. Like the mask mandate was temporary
