    The casino restaurants are following state guidelines for masking and how many people are allowed at a table. Actually they only allowed 4 at a table while guidelines said 6. Everyone wore a mask unless actively drinking or eating. I had assumed before going that most in that age group would have had at least the first vaccine. Anyway I get my second dose this morning.

    And this is one of the reasons I will continue to wear a mask and follow COVID behavior recommendations. My getting a vaccine helps ME, but I still don't want to be responsible for possibly passing the virus on to someone else. I really haven't seen anything about when young people and children will be vaccinated; I would hate the thought of even accidentally passing the virus on to anyone.

    The most recent studies done on vaccinated people in Israel seems to indicate that vaccinated people can’t pass the virus to others. My DIL took a year lay-off because of the virus. She is going back to work on Saturday voluntarily and is glad seniors are getting vaccinated as those are her customers because she works days as a cocktail waitress. The money is in the tips. She could have remained on unemployment but is bored to death. No one has been more paranoid than my kids but they feel safe 2 weeks after their first dose.

    Not definitive.... best would be to err on the side of caution. Waiting a few more weeks is the best recourse.

    Some public health folks would say let people do some things after they are vaccinated, if those they do them with are vaccinated, or it's a relatively low risk situation (ie let's say clothes shopping or an outdoor gym), both of which have been open for a long time of course, but I haven't yet done much because covid, just to encourage people to get vaccines (although there are now way more people who want a vaccine than can get one). Masks or not is a ridiculous obsession that some have become obsessed with, as wearing masks when out and about is easy enough and really a no brainer, so why wouldn't you?
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Please let me be holier than thou! I am serious when I say I won’t go indoors to dine with a bunch of people.

    Conversely I would never mask up when working in my own yard or even in our community garden

    Srsly is someone advocating this latter thing?is this “the science?”

    I don't wear masks outside except when passing a person closely and that's mostly politeness. But by outside I actually mean outside, no walls, no ceiling, the kind of semi-indoor-outdoor things like "outdoor gyms" or many "outdoor restaurants", I don't know if any study has ever been done on, except the less walls the better, they aren't truly an outdoor situation.

    Is someone advocating the latter thing? YES, local public health recommendations have made no distinction much of the time between indoor and outdoor. However, it's partly because it would be somewhat complex to communicate (it may be mostly because they are incompetent, that's pretty much what I have concluded ). There are plenty of places you can walk and easily avoid people by crossing the street etc.. But there are places too crowded for that to be a possibility and masks may make some sense (but maybe not even there, I mean outdoor transmission is supposed to be very rare).

    The Powers That Be issued some guidelines on PPP (Proper Pod Protocols), and I have followed them with my pod-person. There is no difference in our procedures from what we would do if we were living under the same roof, and travel in-between is done in a covid-safe fashion.

    It does require the pod-mates to trust each other to behave properly when out-of-sight, and report any PP (Protocol Problems), but it seems to me that would be the case even if living under the same roof.

    I know plenty of married couples that have had to set up in-home quarantine situations because of a likely exposure or protocol issue, it's not a problem limited to just pods.

    That is good news. I always worry about those people who don't have a mild case; there are far too many of them.
