We’re never completely safe, I’ve had norovirus (sucked) the flu (sucked) surgery (sucked) risk is part of living. What I wonder is, where does Covid rank on the risk scale if you actually made the effort to protect yourself. Should I still avoid eating in a restaurant to protect myself from it? Should I avoid crowded times at the grocery store? I’m marginally safer, but if the margin is paper thin, is it worth the trouble I make for myself?
When I go to a grocery in Pennsyltucky, and 95% of the shoppers are unmasked, I know damn well that they aren’t all vaccinated. The act of masking myself is security theater, I’m not really more protected and I’m not really protecting anyone, because it’s the unvaxxed & unmasked person who is driving the risk scenario.
