So.... what's the end game? When do we just..... stop? Even If we get more vaccinations, people are still getting covid even when vaccinated.

On Feb. 7, the government plans to lift proof of vaccination requirements in high-risk settings, including night clubs, strip clubs, bathhouses and sex clubs.

I’m as cynical as the next person that there’s nothing more permanent than a temporary government restriction, and I’ve been more critical than the average bear on our reaction and beliefs around this pandemic…with that said, given the framework/​roadmap/​whatever to exit out of the pandemic extended into March this really ought not be surprising.

That said—I sincerely hope they stop listening to the CovidZero types and unofficially pursuing CovidZero at all levels of government. Eradication isn’t happening buds. Hell, even herd immunity given imperfect vaccines and deltas virulence isn’t really all that likely any more so much as we’ll just reach endemic status and the virus will circulate with much milder severity similar to the flu. Just make vaccines readily available to the 5-11 year olds for the parents who want them, likewise with third doses and let’s be done with this.

This was totally predictable.

In all my life I’ve never actually seen any government give rights back to citizens after they take them away no matter what the reason was.

So much for “things going back to normal once we have 75% of the population vaccinated”
