  • How is the pandemic still affecting your life?

    Posted by jenny-livingston on October 6, 2022 at 10:30 am

    On Instagram this week, I asked a few questions about whether/how much the virus is still affecting our individual lives. The answers varied from “not at all” to “still very much” and everything in between. Because the responses were so interesting, I wanted to bring that conversation to the forum as well.

    How much is the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting your life? Does it still factor into your decision-making when it comes to social activities or attending medical appointments? Do you still wear a mask in public? What are the guidelines or restrictions in your geographic area? What does your current “normal” look like?

    I saw this story! Gosh — I never thought I’d become one of these people, but I feel like I have almost forgotten about COVID. I think up until January this year I was pretty hands on (masks, being more choosey about where I spend my time, social distancing, etc). But, dang — I got worn out. Now I’ ve gotten my boosters and am getting my next one this weekend!

    I’d still been masking when going shopping and such, but after my july 13th diagnosis, I started again doing stuff like wearing a mask in a restaurant while ordering or paying, only taking it off while eating. Similarly still masking in crowds, even outdoors. // In the area where I live, it has been going around a lot, still. I know so many in the “older &/or careful” category who have had it the past 2 or 3 months. In some cases it was not at all “light”, even after boosters. // I will stay careful.
