I’m very concerned that people who aren’t vaccinated will stop taking precautions.   It we also have free will to make personal decisions that affect us.  I worry less about masks than about sick people going out and spreading the illness because they aren’t concerned about it.

When people are fully vaccinated a mask does literally nothing.

no vaccine is 100% effective. Also, with flu season coming up and allergy season upon us, it is a good habit to keep when circumstances dictate it. Also, some vaccinated people who are immune compromised should still wear them as they are more susceptible to re-infection

I'm still wearing mine indoors. Even though my state adopted the new guidelines, many stores and other indoor venues are still requiring masks from employees and customers. Of course, health clinics and hospitals also still wear them.

in my state of NM, Costco is still requiring masks, although the state adopted the new guidelines. I was there Friday, and I only saw one customer with her mask below the chin.

We are hoping to get to 60% fully vaccinated by June. We are currently at 53.4% fully vaccinated and 63.8% with one dose. The current focus is on getting 12-15 year olds vaccinated by the fall - only at 10% right now, but only Pfizer can be given to them and we've only started with that.

Nothing like mask confusion between stores. How can anyone keep them all straight?

it may be a little confusing isn't that hard. Just keep a mask handy in a pocket or purse and follow the rules on the day.

Too many “experts” as well as others weighing in.

personally, I prefer to celebrate the successes instead of complaining about 'mixed messages.' And I don't take advice about infectious diseases from radiologists or self-certified opthamologists

don't forget, many people who have COVID are completely asymptomatic but can still spread it (especially young people). Even the symptomatic ones are usually infectious for a few days before they get symptoms. The good news is that as more and more get vaccinated, the disease spread as well as serious conditions will continue to diminish.

I’m wearing a mask when I shop or going to appointments but that will change. Since we don’t know for certain, it seems wise to take the safest options.  I don’t like it, but I do it.

Our vaccination rate went so high they closed down big vax sites and are begging people to get shots,

It means we need to be flexible.

I also don’t listen to experts just because they are on the news all the time.
