Everybody’s heard about the new CDC guidelines: if you’re fully vaccinated, you can go without a mask. Some stores aren’t relaxing their mask policies and still requiring them if you shop with them.
Costco is not one of them.
I’m not happy about that. We’ve had a year, an entire year, fighting people who believed that wearing a mask somehow violated their “rights”and now we’re just going to shrug and say, “Oh, you said you’re vaccinated? You don’t have to have a mask.” How many people are going to be lying to us? Already we have teenagers walking around without masks; Wisconsin has just started vaccination efforts for them this week. None of them have gotten a jab, let alone two.
It’s early. It’s far too early. But that doesn’t seem to matter.
Yes, Prime and I are fully vaccinated. We will not be changing our routine. We will keep wearing our masks. We will keep social distancing. We will stay home as much as possible. We will not travel often. We will not be dining in restaurants often and will take our food to go. Neither one of us can say that we trust people. Because we don’t.
We had an easy level apocalypse. We completely blew it. There’s no way our society will survive if we have to face zombies.
