Spain and the UK MAY have peaked and started down (we all hope).

This thing seems to flare and then abate with no real evidence of any changes.  Hopefully we follow the same track shortly and begin abating.
I'm starting to believe that we are going to have peaks and valleys for years to come.

This thing is not very predictable and I think there are some things we yet do not understand about it.  I've been suggesting that for a while.

The only trend I've spotted is whatever happens in Europe now is going to happen here in a month or so.

The former-truck-farming-town-turned-booming-McMansion suburb where I teach is run by people who would rather risk their kids catching COVID (and maybe some teachers dying of it) than to capitulate to the incredibly unreasonable request that they get vaccinated and/or allow the school system to impose masking when appropriate.

So, I think we'll have a bunch of kids get sick (not anyone on the sports teams--they stay home and get virtual education), maybe an old teacher or two die, and we'll finally have to close up shop and go virtual for everyone.

I will be glad to be proven wrong.

Well my company just resumed to using masks indoors even if vaccinated just like the cdc recommended. I had hoped we were done with that since about May or so. I’ll have to find a mask to wear as I threw all mine away.

I got used to wearing a mask, and then unused to it, now it's a bit annoying to me.

We're supposed to wear one in the building here again, but so far most are not.

No, refusing to get the vaccine is.  It's why we're in this boat.

If a person already had the virus, getting the vaccine becomes more of a substantive question, in my view.

Oh I’ve had the vaccine and I’ve also had COVID. So e en if you’ve had one or the other or both they still want us to wear masks indoors. 

Ridiculous. Time to stop hiding from this and get on with your life.

requiring a mask if you have been vaccinated is ridiculous
