It pisses me off. I did what I was suppose to do the first time. I stayed home, wore a mask, and got vaccinated. And now I got to go back? I kinda wish we were doing what France is doing. Want to eat in a restaurant? Show us your vaccine card. Weren't vaccinated? We need you to provide us a copy of a negative COVID test taken 48 hours ago.

I’m all for mask mandates coming back especially because vaccine or no vaccine you can still get COVID. I don’t think we need the shut downs as they didn’t really work and when mask mandates were in place in most places we figured out to make things work and stay open. I think that there are way more breakthrough cases than we truly know about. In other words I think even with the vaccine if we were all tested we would probably find we have COVID it’s just the vaccine masks the side effects (I’m no scientist, just my hypothesis) hence the explosion in cases. At least with the mask mandates you add an extra layer of protection. And then outside of COVID, it’s nice not catching a cold.

I'm all for masks but I think its too late to lock down again. This is why I didnt want to open prematurely- if mask mandates need to be implemented again, few people will follow them

The mandates never should have left in the first place.

I find it annoying, but like ultimately whatever. Wearing a mask is mostly a minor inconvenience. Doubt lockdowns come back personally — the economy has to continue and eventually you have to stop bending over backwards for anti-vaxx idiots

STL is back to wearing masks. I told my manager I will not be coming into the office once a week anymore if I have to wear a mask. I am vaccinated and 0 problems wearing a mask in public, I just don’t want to wear one in the office for hours on end.

Hoping for no more mask mandates 😕 I’ve gotten used to seeing faces again and honestly masks aren’t nearly as effective as vaccines. With vaccines available, masks (especially our usual ill-fitting cloth masks) don’t do much outside of high-risk settings (like hospitals) other than let people virtue signal and sleep better at night. Vaccines were and still are the solution to the pandemic, NPIs are basically band-aids to buy us time while we waited for the vaccines. That said, I’m perfectly willing to abide by local or business-level mask mandates if required, or even just to meet with someone more comfortable with masks. I’m not an asshole and everyone has different levels of risk tolerance. I’ll also mask up when I have a cold if I have to run an errand or something, because that’s what they’re there for. For me, masks are an annoyance but not worth it to make a stink about. I don’t think anyone’s putting up with more lockdowns. Anti-vaxxers never followed guidelines at any point, vaccinated people would revolt since we’ve done our part, and Congress isn’t willing to shell out more stimmy so that boat has sailed. I would personally throw hands rather than go back into lockdown, F that 🤬🤬🤬

I sometimes wonder about the efficacy of the vaccine. For example, I recall when the vaccine first came out they said alcohol use could impact the vaccines effectiveness. I haven't heard anything since then. I volunteered at a vaccine site and people were showing up drunk. I imagine other human factors also contribute to the effectiveness. I think it's just a matter of time before we have another lockdown. So, in the mean time get out as much as you can.

All it will take is a more lethal variation that is resistant to the vaccine.
