The COVID-19 pandemic is over, did you hear? You don't have to wear a mask anymore or mess with social distancing inside. It's all good. Everything is resolved, we're all safe. At least that's what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today. Look, here's the video:

Ok, I might have overstated what the CDC said but basically the CDC and the Biden administration announced today that if you are fully vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask inside or socially distance anymore. According the CDC you can "go back to doing what you were doing" before the pandemic.

I'm sure that there are a lot of people out there that are thrilled at the idea of not having to wear a mask or socially distance anymore but I personally am not one of them. I feel very safe with the mask on. I haven't had even so much as a dry cough since we had to start wearing them. I usually have terrible upper respiratory infections during the winter but I haven't had one since March of last year.

If you don't share my opinion and decide not to wear a mask inside or socially distance, that's great. I have no problem with it. I'm super glad that you feel safe enough to do that, and I mean that sincerely. I just hope that it won't bother you if I do wear my mask in the grocery store, a restaurant if I'm not eating or drinking, or anywhere else there are a lot of people hanging around.

Masks have, unfortunately, become such a political statement that I hope we an all treat them like the thing they really are - just a way to prevent the spread of disease and not a red cape getting waved in front of a bull. It's just a mask on my face, or not one on yours. That's all it is.
