I am curious if other people in Washington feel like the pandemic is over? I am writing this on public transportation with my mask on. And in some places (more as of today) I have to show that I’m vaccinated. More people at my work — me included some days — are working from home than before the pandemic.
But Seattle is hopping. Downtown has people doing typical Downtown stuff. People are out and about all day. Brunch places are packed on the weekends. I am able to go to the dentist for an overdue cleaning. People are doing routine medical procedures. Most importantly, people are not getting sick and dying in large numbers.
I don’t have children, so I understand that for a population that can’t get vaccinated it’s tougher. But even then, they’re back in school unless there’s a relatively rare breakout.
Anyway, it’s still important to take precautions. So wash your hands right now. And for the love of God get vaccinated if you haven’t yet.
