How much are you going out in the COVID environment?
I am fully vaccinated, and I go out some, but not often. I was out today at Garden centers to buy plants for my garden. I also got my hair cut for the first time in over a year. I went to an open air Farmer's Market just before closing time, no crowds. I also occasionally visit fabric stores, grocery stores, and hardware stores. I have not been in a restaurant, but will drive through or pick up. I'm not ready to trust other people yet, I see too many people not wearing masks, or not wearing masks correctly. I have been with family without masks. I'm willing to wait til things get better to go into crowds.
I'm a "fully masked at all times when out" person. We're still under "suggested" mandate here and oddly, most businesses require masks. This is God's country ... it's a bit surprising how diligent most businesses are being. I prefer to protect myself AND others than to not. It just seems ridiculous to me to fuss over something as simple as wearing a mask. I have real life problems, wearing a mask isn't one of them.
(While in the pharmacy yesterday a priest in full garb cut in front of me and he wasn't wearing a mask. I guess he figures that cloak and collar is good enough. It was a bit unnerving they let him in the store. CVS mandates masks for all. His prescription wasn't there though ... I guess meds weren't in God's plans for him yesterday. Or he was being punished for cutting in front of me. LOL) (His birth year was 1991. I didn't know they were still making priests post 1968...
I'm a few days away from being fully vaccinated, but our new covid cases has increased dramatically in the last 2 weeks, so I've been declining invitations to go out to gatherings this week. Prefer to stay in and not contribute to the community spread.
If I am indentified as a close contact, I'll have to self isolate meaning I won't be able to work. So, I'd rather be safe than sorry. After I'm deemed fully vaccinated, I won't have to self isolate even if deemed a close contact of a positive case. Nevertheless, I just want to keep myself and others safe, so I can hug my grandchildren when the visit me in 6 weeks.
I still wear my mask when in close contact with others - but mostly keep my distance and just don't go out too much right now - mostly out of courtesy for others more than fear for myself - but also now for my own protection with community spread clusters being identified in various gathering places where my friends do gather. I'm glad my island identifies the places where the spread occurred - other islands keep it secret. We want to nip this in the bud.
I've been fully vaccinated since February but it's only been the past 4-6 weeks that most other people in my inner circle have received both of their doses so we've been socializing and hugging A LOT, and it feels marvelous! I still mask in any common areas, and if I'm around large groups or someone who hasn't been vaccinated. Got my hair cut and that felt good, too. It hadn't been that far down my back since my 20s.
I go to only a few locations with frequency: work, grocery/store, and volunteer office. I'm always masked when moving around any of these places, but take my mask off when seated at my desk, when nobody else is near. I take a small risk during volunteer sessions removing my mask for discussion, but only when everyone is seated and situated at least six feet apart. I get my second Moderna dose next Wednesday and, after the two-week period following, I'll be going to a few places I've been putting off (e.g., getting my airbag recall taken care of finally) but will continue to wear a mask everywhere.
I used masks and gloves around any one I have never had any contact with!!!
Always wear my mask and gloves at any place I enter outside of my own residence!!!
I use Ivermectin with great success.
Do some real research Ivermectin is the most effect help with Covin19 before, during, an d after!!!
With all the vaccines you will now need a booster shot every year, in some cases every six months!!!
As usual big Pharma wins big profits getting us by any means possible as we are paying for the whole vaccine shit show as taxpayers!!!
Coronavirus pandemic will not end till it mutates into a non lethal variant!!!
That is what had to transpire in 1917-1919 flu that kills millions worldwide.
If you do not agree with my post!
I really do not care, I am healthy and doing very well at 69 years old!
I am immune compromised, it's a bit odd ball really, I have IGGE which makes my immune system over react to some stupid things and under react to others, immunizations don't always take because of this and thus even though I still get vaccinated I really am quite dependent on herd immunity protecting me, I.E enough people being vaccinated for disease to be community transmissible, thus anti vaxxers I consider extremely dangerous individuals. For me it could be a case of I get Covid and get a skin rash or I could get the common cold and get knocked out for months. As an example even though I was vaccinated and given a booster in my 30's because of my condition for Whooping Cough I contracted the condition at 37 and it nearly killed me. I spent just over six months coughing my guts out to the point I was coughing up blood. I am presently recovering from a severe bronchial infection which was misdiagnosed as GERD and I have spent 18 months slowly going down hill till the point that I could not walk 3 feet without being short of breath and such a rampant headache ( which pain killers could not shift ) that I though I was dying. I finally got a doctor to listen and I seem to be on the mend, I have a repeat spirometry test on the 26th of July after having failed the first test and being told "you should not be alive based on these results".
