My bf’s best friend is getting married Jan 2022. Big Indian wedding in Florida. I’m nervous that the Covid situation will still be a concern then (if not in the US, then in India, as many of the couple’s family are flying over). We need to RSVP soon. What would you do? My bf and I are double vaxxed but...am I too paranoid about the variants?

Consider a new pandemic, at what % fatality rate do you think vaccines will mandated by law for all citizens? This is not the last pandemic society will face. COVID has a low death rate compared to Ebola for example. What % fatality rate would it take for governments around the world including the US to legally require mandatory vaccinations of all citizens? Would it be 10%? 20? 50%? fatality rate? Or will we never mandate vaccines in lieu of personal freedom?
Please visit and read this article: https://ourworldindata.org/mortality-risk-covid I routinely assign articles from this site. They’re easy to understand no matter your stats experience. The site is VERY well respected. Ignore what side of the debate you’re on; pause to understand the math of CoVid fatalities. The article is not political. It explains how to calculate case fatality, crude mortality, and infection fatality plus how they can/can’t be used. News from all sides interchange these stats, but they mean very different things.
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
How many of you think your firm puts billability and clients before you and your family’s safety during covid-19 pandemonium? Is it fair to travel? Be in airports? Put yourself and family at risk?
I really hope any stunts capitalizing on Covid will not be allowed to win awards next year...
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it

How would you communicate the involuntary termination of a team member at a startup? Typically, I handle these communications by having the manager have an informative session immediately after the termination to the employee's direct team and the news rapidly spread. However, as this is such a small team it may cause confusion and concerns for the team that stays. I feel like there isn't an "ideal" way to communicate involuntary terminations, but happy to hear your advice

How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
