In effect, yes. The variants seem to be getting less severe, yet more contagious, like the common cold.

While there is some chance of a bad variant cropping up, I think as a public health emergency "we're done" now, life goes on.  That means no interventions to try and contain it beyond vaccine availability.

I still on occasion see someone in the park wearing a mask, by themselves, far from anyone else, still masked.  I think it's a political statement.

Now, on an elevator, OK, I get it, some older residents here will have one on, their choice.  I try and direct my face away from them to the extent possible.

To some degree, I think most all of us are still using some caution.

I will no longer wear a mask, and it's not a political statement at all. I just don't believe they work.

There continues to be a slight increase in new cases but new deaths has remained very low

some have speculated this increase is the result of hospitals testing every new patient and creating a picture which doesnt really represent the true occurrence  rate

we shall see

Hospitals should test every admitted patient, I think, and they have been doing that for years now.  I'm OK with a mask inside a hospital.

I think the notion of shooting youngsters is to slow the spread, I'm not sure that is a good strategy.

It's proven that the vaccines or prior infection does not prevent infection, so this does not make any sense to me.

I think being vaccinated does inhibit future infections.  The data seem pretty clear on that point.

Anybody else noticing more impatience and rudeness in public these days? As the pandemic wanes, the worst I see of others is out on the roads. The stress of driving has gotten to the point where if I'm facing any amount of time on the I-15 or I-5, I end up paying as much attention to the rear view mirrors. So many drivers cutting lanes, flooring 80, and if finding myself in the way, I've never been flipped off or honked at more.

Googling "pandemic rude" to check if anybody else is noticing and sure enough many are:

Why Everyone Is So Rude Right Now - TIME (Oct 2021)
Why Is Everyone So Angry? We Investigated - NYT (Jan 2022)
Face it, you've become meaner because of the pandemic - Deseret (Aug 2021)
Adults Are Throwing Tantrums—in Restaurants, Planes and at Home. Blame the Pandemic - WSJ (Sept 2021)
Shoppers are getting ruder, and grocery workers suffer the mental health impact - Inquirer (Nov 2021)
