It depends. I held a party with friends with no masks. But we required a negative test beforehand. 

Anyway, mask mandates seem to be lifting across the country.

I disagree with ending the mask mandates for indoors, although pandemic fatigue is hitting a lot of the people who have taken this very seriously.   I think California is doing the right thing by looking ahead to when this will be endemic.  Unfortunately I think we've proven that a significant portion of the population is not going to do the right thing, so at some point we need to move to the next phase.  I don't think it's time yet, but my presidential campaign is getting little traction, so I doubt I'll be making any decisions for anyone else, anytime soon.

For now, my mask stays on and I am avoiding places I don't feel comfortable.  I too would go to a party with friends and no masks under those conditions or if everyone was vaccinated.   The charts for hospitalization/death based on vaccinated status would be hilarious if it didn't mean so many people died.   The vaccinated line is close to zero and flat.

Many people don't practice what they preach. But, in this case and in my opinion, your mask wearing benefits you - not them - so who cares what they do.

And BTW, Florida still sucks:

I would honestly settle for everyone washing their hands after they wipe their ass. 

According to what I see every time I use an airport restroom, that percentage is pretty low. Think about that next time you shake somebody's hand. BlankSaltyBeauceron-size_restricted.gif.6dc74ddf38f4113a7494cbc63fdc0aac.gif

Interesting that Italy is the lowest on the first graph.  They were a very sad hotbed of Covid early on.  My state is rolling back mask mandates tomorrow.  I will still be wearing a mask in select situations.  And I will continue social distancing and washing the ol' hands.  There are certain people I know who remain unvaccinated and I still won't be getting within 10 feet of them.  Why take stupid chances around stupid people.

More than 100 Florida ZIP codes report more than 100% of their residents are vaccinated. DeSantis and health officials don't plan to investigate this.

Florida, man.

I think this really shows what happens when you elect bad leadership.  With Covid it's going to be bad almost everywhere at some point.   State leadership that has taken this very seriously have still seen spikes and bad times, but Florida is just insane.   Makes me believe that all the Carl Hassan stories I've ready are actually based on 100% true events.

Oh, I don't know. I live in Florida, lived through Covid after contracting it. And I see a TON of people from other States here on our course doing just fine. I'm at the clubhouse, on the course and in the Pro-shop four to five times a week and I get to talk with all sorts of our visitors and guests from the Northeast, out West, Great Britain, Canada, Australia ..... you name it. And they all think that where they come from is "insane". They love Florida and they love coming here.

Florida isn't "insane" and neither is our State leadership. What's insane is continuing to destroy the economy with these asinine lock-downs and mandatory masking that even so-called leaders aren't abiding by anymore.

We're doing just fine down here in Florida. I lived through Covid, it was a joke and nothing more than a mild case of the flu. I live in a retirement community (55+) in the last two years, our community hasn't lost one person to "Covid".

It's way past time to live your lives. Spring is coming, Summer is almost here. Get outside and live your lives.

I got my 4th stab yesterday. My nanobots are now so magnetic that I have trouble walking through a parking lot!

@Frank FI'm glad you're doing so well. Unfortunately, as you may be aware, over 900,000 have died from Covid in the US alone. None of them are doing well.

Frank, you take it too lightly.  We had a state senator who was an anti-vaxxer, at age 52.  He's dead.  We had a state trooper who told our governor to "Kiss his ass."  He was an anti-vaxxer who wouldn't get the mandated vaccination.  Age 50.  He's dead.

My friend, you are/were playing with fire.

My response was directed at those so very critical of Florida, my home State. Plenty of criticism born of media hype.

I don't believe in nanobots or magnetic chips or other conspiracy theories. I also don't believe that locking ourselves away, masking to oblivion or getting 37 booster shots is the answer either. Guess getting booster jabs keep people from getting Covid too. Because there are plenty of people who are "vaxxed to the max" that are continuing to get Covid and pass it on to others.

I'm not bankrolling big pharma. But, I am very happy for you that you find security in receiving booster shots. Your body, your choice.

Thanks for the concern. Had Covid in November of 2020. I still have the anti-bodies as of six months ago. I'm not anti-vax. My shot record is up to date. I do believe in the human immune system and so does my Doctor.

Frank, Florida has acquitted itself very poorly. That’s virtually a fact.

Move on. Your personal experience is not relevant, really. And vaccines use “the human immune system” too.

My personal experience isn't relative? Lol! What a joke. Here comes "cancel culture".  Now your gaslighting me for giving my own personal opinion based on living my own life here in Florida while you sit in PA. Priceless.

If Florida is so bad, why are politicians like AOC and Michigan's Governor Whitmer safe to come here. Because they're hypocrites.

How would that go over here if I wrote disparaging things about your home State of PA? It's not a virtual fact unless you can provide some hard data to back it up. Follow the science instead of following political science. There is no need for a vaccine in an immune system that is showing antibodies. But, I guess you're a doctor as well as a "golf pro"?

My primary care physician knows quite a bit more than you do. But hey, this is your kingdom and anyone who disagrees with the ruler gets the boot.

Enjoy your new clothes your nakedness.

I'm out.

Frank

Frank, your personal experience is a mere one in 22 million.  You seem to want to make it be universal. Your "follow the science"  line cracked me up, because you did not. You did the ol' pick and choose.  You were/are (are because the subvariant BA.2 might be coming back around) a layperson who got lucky.  How's your golf these days?

    • Really?  Knowing the name of the caddy would spoil the podcast for you?
    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results.
