Ok, local cases have fallen from the 100’s per day to the 30-40 range and the CDC has come out with some guidance:
Choosing Safer Activities
- If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
- Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
- If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine.
Yes, there is extra guidance for hospitals, transportation, etc.
Why I will mask up around strangers in indoor settings (e. g. stores) our in larger outdoor settings (e. g. ball games): part of it is store rules. But part of it is that a possibly immune compromised stranger (or someone who cannot get vaccinated) has no way of knowing that I am vaccinated and am therefore of little danger to them.
Yes, I trust the science on my own risk AND on my risk of actually giving it to others. But there is a human emotion side as well.
Still…I am feeling more and more “normal” by the passing day; I am swimming, going to outdoor games and just bought tickets for a late season Colts game.
