Thanks Trisha
Becky Weber

Unclear what Inauguration will be like - I have heard they are considering possibility of it being completely virtual dependent on the pandemic and also worry about possibility of President Trump's supporters disrupting any public events.
Leon Griebenow
22:58
***While discussing the Covid vaccination... We all care very much about our motorcoach drivers. I wonder if we could lobby for our drivers to be early recipients, as many transport military and medical personnel and should be considered essential workers.
Wendy Cox

Hi, Georgia Coach Lines (Fayetteville, GA)

Becky Weber
31:23
Bus drivers are currently listed as essential and critical infrastructure workers by CISA/DHS. Once FDA approves a covid vaccine or vaccines, they will make recommendations through the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) for priorities given limited supply. Current draft recommendations include health care workers first followed by essential and critical infrastructure workers, but these are not final. Also, the CDC recommendations are merely recommendations; final decisions will be made by states.
Larry Killingsworth
32:27
Thanks Becky
Leon Griebenow
32:55
Thanks Becky
William Gentry
33:26
Trying to remember is the problem. Filing docs in a hard copy or in your computer is great, but you have to remember what you filed it under. Maybe we need to concentrate on organization skills first, then the rest will fall in place and save time.
Larry Killingsworth
34:17
Good point Bill.
Brenda Tidwell
42:38
I agree William. We need to learn more organization skills. Also, most technology requires more schooling to use.

Exactly what I was thinking.
Jason Briggs
