@benwerd I feel exactly the same way. I haven’t been inside a restaurant since the pandemic began, and I have no interest in doing so any time soon. Movie theatres I’m still on the fence about as I really want to see Dune on the big screen, but even that I’m finding myself starting to lean back to the side of caution. Upon reading recently that the Mu variant is here in Ontario and has phenotype markers that could indicate potential vaccine evasion (don’t know how much), making it a variant of interest, I’m feeling less brave by the day.
@benwerd I feel like I've been very lucky, as I manage a restaurant and few of my staff have ben exposed to or contracted COVID from outside the restaurant. I was vaccinated early and am as safe as I can be. We are very diligent about staff masks, gloves and sanitizing everything...often. When I'm not working, I don't want to be around people, and will not for quite a while.
