Things are returning to “normal” in some parts of the world as some countries drop health restrictions as they re-open. It is interesting to see crowds of people attending events like concerts, sports, or just eating out.
What I find odd is that seeing a masked person in a crowd now is equivalent to seeing a maskless person before. You still get the impression that the people around are thinking “What’s wrong with you?” for different reasons.
I think in many countries, the vaccination rate is ~70% first dose / 40% second dose. I still think that with those numbers, having 20000 people in close quarters is a bit premature.
To enjoy the summer we missed last year, we should still respect physical distancing with strangers while we slowly expand our social bubble as friends/family get vaccinated.
This is no over yet. It’s getting there, though.
Yesterday, I wrote about a few of the comics that I enjoy. Here I enjoy sharing my sense (or lack of) humor.
That’s all the weirdness for today.
