As an optimist, I see it as a reward. Being vaccinated and traveling with other vaccinated people (and their tested children), my thoughts are:The idea is to punish you for your decisions...whole stick part of the carrot thing.
Yet here we are with people adovcating for restricting people against there will.
If one of us on that plane just happen to have a pre- asymptomatic breakthrough, and are unfortunate enough to also be in that brief window of being contagious, it sets my mind at ease knowing that any further infections aren’t likely to bear an impact on our destination’s health care system. Even better if we’re headed to a music festival, theme park, or cruise ship that is likewise “passported.” It’s a rewarding, responsible, method to living a “normal” life.
In real life, where I live around a bunch of pandemic deniers who want to tell me my employer isn’t actually busting at the seams with patients again and they deserve the right to allow their kids to infect mine, my wife and I still enjoy our favorite brew pub. We’ve been to a number of movies at our favorite art/indie film theater. If we didn’t, we’d be stay-at-home for the indefinite future based on our situation locally. We do the best we can, and follow or supersede the rules. But there is more that can and should be done to protect the public health of everyone.
