I went to Walmart tonight....I'd say most people are maskless now, particularly if a company says it's not a thing anymore.... (excluding myself...and a few others I'd see now and again)....
I have given up at work recently. Literally no one but myself was wearing one. Today I actually saw one person...but she took it off while talking to me, though, sooo...(defeats the purpose, really. People don't wear them right, even if they do.) Many people don't know how to cough/sneeze into their elbow either....it's always something polite to do...YET SOME PEOPLE, even through this....don't do it. (and it <secretly> pisses me off...)
TBH....even though it's a heated 'debate'...I think going maskless is premature.
MAYBE it'll be okay this summer....but I'm betting it will hit again in the fall. With the way things are going...one lady I talked to already mentioned she doesn't plan to get the booster or any additional COVID-19 shots (she doesn't get the flu shot either, according to her.)
I think I heard 1/3 of people aren't FULLY vaccinated in this country....maybe half have been vaccinated at all.
I guarantee those who won't get vaccinated are the ones who were opposed to wearing a mask to begin with (and likely didn't since it wasn't really enforced). It's very premature to act like the virus is gone or is being defeated because a vaccine exists...and having the CDC express only non-vaccinated people need a mask....well, since they're likely against it anyway...NO ONE is wearing a mask....(good lord...)
But anymore around here...it's looking more and more like there's no pandemic at all.
I went to a graduation recently and MOST people weren't following protocol....it royally pissed me off. No social distancing was even possible really....unless I stood through the whole thing I guess...
(It REALLY sucks knowing what's occurring in India lately....)
I feel sick about it all....but I guess that's life. It's one of those things out of my control, no one really knows what's going to happen, and hindsight will always be 20/20.

Thank you Strawberry!! So much of what you’ve written is exactly what I’m thinking or have witnessed. It’s just so frustrating knowing this is a group project and half the group refuses to take their part seriously.
