Anybody still wearing a mask when going to a restaurant, grocery shopping, Etc? I pretty much am mask free unless mandatory, like health care facilities. Some people still don't feel secure w/o a mask. 

I am choosing to wear a mask in certain situations, primarily where there are many people I do not know.  My wife has health issues and even though vaccinated we want to avoid the slim chance of getting it.  This primarily means I wear it in grocery stores, etc.  I'm not overly concerned about sitting at a table in a restaurant since other tables are typically far enough away to be of minor concern and a single waiter/waitress does not worry me.  I'm also required to wear it when walking through my father's Assistant Living facility but can remove it once I am in his apartment (But at least I can now visit more frequently and no need for an "Appointment").

I'm fully vaccinated and still wear a mask indoors. Outdoors, no, unless it is wall to wall people, that happens not infrequently in the big city. Haven't gone to a movie or eaten at a restaurant inside yet.

I’m about 50/50. My son is 5, and we make him wear a mask when we’re indoors around strangers, so I will wear it when I’m with him. Without him, if I’m going to be somewhere for a long time, I’ll wear it. A long grocery trip, for example. Otherwise, no mask. 
That said, I do try to carry a mask in my pocket in case someone asks me to wear it.

So I have to subscribe to WSJ to read the whole story? The free portion didn't mention the severity of the cases of those who were vaccinated.

Would like to know how many of them were hospitalized. Are the symptoms lessened by having the vaccine.  Also, what is the total infection rate of vaccinated. Lots of logical questions I didn’t see in the article the first time I read through it.

Maybe this is good news. I hope so.  On March 29th I got my second Covid 19 vaccination (Moderna).  That afternoon I went out and shot the best round I have had in a year (81). The next day I shot an 80.  Could it be that the vaccine lowers scores by as much as 6-7 strokes?  Maybe it was just the relaxation factor.  Whatever the cause/effect relationship is, I'll take it.  No, I don't plan on getting more vaccinations, unless boosters come out and are recommended.

Well, today our state opened everything up, so I'm going to check out my favorite watering hole in a few minutes hoping the barstools are back.  However, there's a caveat (isn't there always a caveat?).  If my favorite bartender is there I'll still need to wear a mask or sit at a table instead of the bar.  He admitted yesterday he's not vaccinated.  Hmmm. his excuse... "I just haven't found the time."  Weak.

The young lady behind the counter at my favorite golf course still is in first place for the best excuse.  "I have trouble being on time for appointments."

But I want a booster.  I had absolutely no side effects to either dose of the Pfizer vaccine.  I worry that it didn't take.  So, let me at that booster.

Absolutely nothing to worry about. Having no side effects means nothing. Just because a persons tattoo didn’t hurt doesn’t mean the tattoo isn’t there.😃

    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing things you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
