Our school is holding an OMM practical Monday where we'll be performing god knows what on each other while wearing N95's and gloves. The best part is that 2/3 of our class is in the middle of dedicated right now due to Prometric cancellations.

Kids, if you think you can escape OMM, think again.

Why? I thought there was a big spike in COVID cases right now.

That’s definitely not the only school doing it. We still have to do our OMM practical, too. It just got pushed into August, though, so since it’s a “prerequisite” for rotations, everyone’s rotations also just got pushed back again, if they weren’t already pushed past August. :rolleyes:

Our school is doing this in a few weeks as well. All of orientation is virtual except for the second year practicals we couldn't complete at the end of the semester. They told us this is a requirement to begin rotations and to graduate on time.

They tried to give us the same BS but that "requirement" is completely made up by them. Meanwhile covid cases continued their rapid rise today in Texas...
