If you think COVID is nothing more than a cold-like virus, do us both a favor and stop reading so we don’t get mad at each other. Today’s segment is about how we’re moving on and learning to live with the Omicron variant that has spread to homes, schools, businesses, and just about everywhere else.
The indications are that things in our state are going to improve in the near future and that will certainly be welcomed by all. However, I think it’s safe to say that for the most part we are adapting to the current virus without having to lock our doors and stay inside our homes. Many have used common sense to try to avoid contracting COVID by wearing masks in certain situations, staying away from large gatherings, and making sure that if anyone in their family develops symptoms, they quickly get a rapid test or PCR… if he can get one.
Information about COVID changes with frequency and it would be easy to point fingers at the medical and scientific communities and blame them for sending mixed messages. However, there is still a lot we don’t know and, unfortunately, this information will likely continue to change.
However, there is one fact that should not be disputed…although many will. It’s ALL indications are that your best defense against hospitalization and death is to be fully vaccinated and boosted. That doesn’t mean you won’t get sick, but chances are your life isn’t in danger and, in the end, isn’t that the most important thing?
In the meantime, we continue with our daily life….work, school, sport, etc. No reason yet to close anything…just learn to get by.
