I also got notification the site went up early and was able to place my order, now just waiting for the ones I bought through Walmart to arrive so that I can get reimbursed through Kaiser for those.

How do we get reimbursed? I get the runaround from them.

The US government will start handing out N95 masks for free starting late next week.  3 masks per person available at pharmacies.  I don't know why they just don't ship them with the test kits.

Over here in the UK all covid restrictions are coming off (again) from next week. No more work from home or vaccine passports or masks in public places (except London transport).

While our positive tests seem high (and they are), the positivity rate is dropping by 20% or so each day. Patients in hospital at its lowest since October.

Goodness knows how this will go. But here we are.

I'm particular about masks. Not all of them fit the way I like, so I prefer to buy my own masks. Maybe that's why.

You have to go through your health insurance company. For instance, here's how to do it if you have Blue Shield of California:

I found that by googling "[name of my insurance company]+ 'reimburse rapid test'", but YMMV.

There are signs Omicron rises in California are starting to slow down.  Here in Orange Country, the positivity infection rate, although high, has remained flat over the last several days.
The rate at which California’s coronavirus tests are coming back positive has also started to decline. For the seven-day period that ended Jan. 10, California hit a record positive test rate of 23.1%. Since then, the rate fell to 21.5% for the seven-day period that ended Saturday. The rate is still very high; by comparison, in early December, it was around 2%.
A similar trend is holding for Los Angeles County. L.A. County’s seven-day positive result rate may have peaked at 22.7% for the seven-day period that ended Jan. 3; for the weekly period that ended Tuesday, the positivity rate was 16.3%. In the first week of December, it was around 1%.

In San Diego too.   The rate is still really high but on consecutive days it's below the 7 day average of 29%.  Not much below but still below.

I jinxed it.  Today the positivity rate is 34% with many more cases, 14000, compared to the last few days at around 10000.  I was hoping for a downturn so that I can make a grocery run.

If you need supplies very soon just go get the items, or find a way to get them.

I masked up and saw No Way Home 5 times in packed theaters last month. I recently saw Scream. I have also done many grocery runs since Omicron became a thing. My area is no better than yours. Like you said masks work, especially the right ones. I know you use the right ones.

FWIW Amazon Fresh, and Target pick-up, are amazing.  We've been doing that the entire pandemic, since March 2020 (though we go to our local Trader Joes a bit nowadays) and you can schedule specific day/deliver window times with minimal issues finding what we need.  My wife is vegan and my kids are uber picky eaters and  we've had relatively few issues over the last almost-two years of doing this at least weekly.

Past few weeks my amazon fresh has been out of a lot of stuff so I haven't order, it has definitely been nice during the pandemic.  I was also doing pick-up for king Soopers but now I can't cross the picket line and Safeway is wiped out.

My mainstay through most of the pandemic was Walmart drive up.  Drive up, pop the trunk and they would fill it with your order.  That worked great most of the time.  At the peak it took 2 or 3 different trips to Walmart to actually be able to pick up the order.  They were so backed up and the line of cars was so long.  A rep gave me the tip that I could drop by anytime after my reserved time.  I didn't need to be there at the scheduled time.  So I would go right before they stopped for the day when it wasn't busy.  I stopped once everyone was in the house was vaccinated and I've been shopping in store since.

San Diego stat reporting is so messed up now.  As of yesterday they will report positive case numbers 5 days a week.  But they will only report the number of tests 2 days a week.  Making it cumbersome to figure out what the positivity rate is.  The 7 day average is contradictory.  There's an up arrow saying it's trending up, but the number is dropping.  How can it be trending up if the rate is dropping?

Best thing ever.  I've been using Target and Vons drive up.  After the pandemic I'm going to use these forever.  Saves so much time.
