    I just noticed how almond butter is more expensive now. I guess its the inflation.

    Yppej, the employees may be choosing to wear masks. My Dil works in a casino and most are wearing masks because they are choosing too because our mandate is gone.

    That's not what they tell me. Some have quit over the issue.

    My grocery store also has many employees AND most of the patrons still wearing masks - mandate or not. And, while I don't shop much, when I am out, I still see a lot of folks masking. I don't think masks will be going away any time soon and I'm not sorry. LOL.

    Went to my library the other day and EVERYONE inside was masked. Yay!!

    I still mask up when out and when the situation calls for it indoors - regardless of mandates.

    Our mask mandate is also
    Over and most but not all grocery employees are still masked. On the other hand we went out to dinner last night since case counts are down to pre-omicron levels and only about 10% of the staff were masked. Given how unusual that is here I assume that the restaurant had a massive outbreak of omicron so they donít see the point.

    Or they accept California's plan on recognizing covid is endemic aka like the flu, not the end of the world.

    only 4 to 5 times more deadly than a bad year of the flu at minimum, that's the prediction.

    Sounds like pre-vax statistics to me. I don't know a single vaccinated person who has died of it, but several unvaxxed. There is Colin Powell in such rough shape the flu or something else could have done him before the cancer did, but I didn't know him personally.

    The vast majority of Americans are willing to accept that death rate in order to go back to pre-pandemic lifestyles -- but they don't revel in it or pathologically deny it. I think most folks are just fatigued. They probably mostly did a good job of masking during the frist 12 to 18 months of the pandemic.

    It is really just the loudmouth sociopath anti-mask nutjobs that are acting like covid is no big deal.

    It is like, how many ppl have died a day since Omicron became the dominant strain? In the last 7 days almost 2,500 people died from Covid in the US.

    Yet we got some idiots out there saying this is a non-issue. LOL

    Ultralight, you donít understand. Everyone that dies of covid was on deathís doorstep, so their deaths donít actually count. That 2500/day dead people? They wouldíve been dead in the next few years anyway. All covid is doing is making it happen a little quicker. Sure, some might think that a bummer but others are shouting Ďa few early deaths is a small price to pay for muh freedumb! Yay ĎMerica! Eff yeah!í
