    UPDATE:

    Two weeks after taking the vaccine I broke my arm. The fact that I fell off my bike right at the “2 Week” mark is very suspicious.

    Which vaccine did you get? Have broken arms been added as a side effect yet and rollout been halted?

    So the vaccine absorbed all of the calcium from your body, made a stick out of it and threw it in your wheel spokes, so that you fell off your bike and broke your arm? What an awful vaccine! :banana:

    Was it the same arm you got the shot in? INQUIRING MINDS HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW!!!

    Also, I'm very sorry to hear that. Broke a collarbone when a turning car didn't see me about two years ago, and it was NOT a fun couple weeks.

    The vaccine turned him into Mr Glass. Sucks you got that roll of the dice @Mathemagician. Getting the unbreakable guy's powers would have been a lot more fun.

    The opposite arm. So apparently the chip can move freely through your body. Good to know. Seems like “they” want to keep us inside longer.

    My eldest uncle just died from covid.

    He was literally scheduled to get his first dose of vaccine the day he ended up admitted to the hospital.

    Those jokes did spruce the thread up a bit.

    Is it just me or are these updates to the guidelines even given a moment's consideration?

    They just lifted restrictions on vaccinated people to not wear masks unless in a crowd, who's checking and upholding this?

    What's with this messaging? There's multiple fucking strains of COVID, and they basically gave the entire country a free pass to not wear their masks unless questioned. This makes the situation infinitely worse for businesses to enforce mask wearing indoors, and making it seem like we're back in 2019.

    to be fair they are talking about outdoors which seems reasonable to me.

    I've been saying for a LONG time that my suspicion is they've been holding off on giving this guidance, even though they suspect it's safe, for exactly this reason. I'm guessing with more than half of the country vaccinated, this is moving from the stick to the carrot, trying to give some added incentive for any of the straglers, but who knows.

    Moot point for me because local ordinances still require masks where I live.

    EDIT - in fact, the ordinance was announced in my city one year ago today.

    Sometimes individuals, even doctors, don't think through the larger ramifications of their words. In context, for someone paying attention, they make total sense. Out of context, in the typical attention span of the average fruit fly. . . er, American catching sound bytes on the news, that's pretty much carte blanche to go naked mud wrestling with the neighbors. Especially since most will see "It's the return of freedom. It's the return of us being able to do normal activities again," and if they managed to pay attention that far in they've probably stopped noticing the words and started planning for the apple bobbing and skinny dipping party.

    Yeah IMO it's incredible destructive messaging to send out to the entire country, we should be approaching this with caution not flipping a switch and changing our habits developed for the last year and a half.

    Even if it is outside, I'd think signals we need to be sending are not to proceed like we're one and done with the pandemic.
