No the problem is with the attitude of those who refuse to get vaccinated.

But yeah I guess the real problem here is the vaccinated who don’t want to wear a mask.

That’s going to fix everything !
Whatever dude. You're so hung up on masks when it's far from the issue.

The attitude of the the people in charge not doing enough to get more vaccinated is a problem.

I don’t think they want us. They are more than happy to sell us their syrup and delicious ice cream but at this point they are probably looking around saying what the heck are the rest of you guys doing ;)
Yeah, pretty much. Wondering about the south and parts of the midwest, mainly. You guys in the rest of the northeast seem to be doing your honest best.

Don't expect to see the sun much if you come visit this summer. Wettest, coolest summer since I've lived here. I haven't even tried to swim in the lakes yet this year.

When though? If delta is so deadly and the cases/hospitalizations are now through the roof why the delay? If masks are that important to stop delta in its tracks it should be done ASAP, no?
If we’ve learned anything since this thing started, it’s that nothing makes sense. All I know is, thank goodness we have the vaccine. People were calling for no masks before! Common sense went the way of the dodo long ago.

Sure Disney could do it, but why would they? The shut down back in March 2020 was part of a massive stay at home campaign nationwide. It made sense then and was easily explained to shareholders and Wall Street as well as guests. The majority of people who had their trips canceled probably would have cancelled anyway. Even with low capacity limits they weren’t hitting the cap on park reservations at all last Summer. Public sentiment overwhelming favored them being shut down. Today that’s not true. People would not be as accepting of a shut down of WDW. It would be a massive PR nightmare for Disney. If things get bad enough and the public sentiment swings then maybe that changes but the PR and financial hits would be devastating right now.
We are in agreement.. you could have saved a lot of typing right then. 😃

Bread only. Right now, we are mask optional (New Jersey) for the vaccinated, and most of the congregation is vaccinated. The rest are good at masking. Sanitize hands before receiving, receive in palm, sanitize after receiving. The priest is the only person who can handle the elements and we sanitize several times. Think of it as food-service guidelines! We are trying to figure out how to offer the chalice. Oddly, the epidemiologists and physicians on the diocesan re-opening task force are in favor of offering th chalice. It’s the clerics who are resistant!
I'm surprised they haven't suggested using the tiny, disposable shot glasses that can be purchased at any party store and also get used for doling out medication in medical settings.

Our unwillingness to deal with this challenge is really pathetic. Can you imagine what would have happened in the US if the pioneers were as willfully stupid as Americans of today are?

How many here advocated for masklessness pre-vaccination? I rarely ask questions around here but I seem to recall more than a few.

The relevance of this question? Well, it explains how rational discussion already went out the window.
I wore a mask every second of the day when I was around other people except my immediate family.

Now that im vaccinated I wore a mask once 2 weeks ago, when it was required at the vet I brought my dog to.

It doesn't mean anything other than they want to have the footage available in both formats
Well… it means a little bit more than that. It reminds me of that old SNL skit where Tom Brokaw prerecorded all the ridiculous ways President Ford could die, as a sort of obituary reel.

They wouldn’t put the money into the alternative if it didn’t matter. This is a CYA, sure. But it’s also based on data they have that we don’t.

"The United States will not lift any existing travel restrictions "at this point" due to concerns over the highly transmissible COVID-19 Delta variant and the rising number of U.S. coronavirus cases, the White House confirmed on Monday.

The decision, which was first reported by Reuters, comes after a senior level White House meeting late on Friday. It means that the long-running travel restrictions that have barred much of the world's population from the United States since 2020 will not be lifted in the short term."

"The United States currently bars most non-U.S. citizens who within the last 14 days have been in the United Kingdom, the 26 Schengen nations in Europe without internal border controls, or in Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil."
