mask or no mask now?
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
good morning - I have a strong science background. What I know and feel there is still lots of virus hanging around. I had a long talk with my DD who wants to get her kids vaccinated. She says she is not ready to give up the mask. My friend in Scotland is not ready to give up the mask. Some of my friends are in the same boat as me. We do not even know if we can travel Internationally yet. I want to give up the mask and I am fully vaccinated and very healthy. But should I yet? I have read that if you do get COVID even after being vaccinated you will not die or even be hospitalized. The vaccines are only 90% effective. I do not want to get it. I know I have to return to life. But I have spent nearly two years of my life remaining safe. I live in a state that we barely had any restrictions due to our governor. I want to remain safe and spend my future traveling. I do not want to test positive for a COVID test just when I am about to cross a border. We have not reached herd immunity yet. Everything is confusing. Just would like your thoughts. Are things moving too fast? Have a good day. I will.
