COVID-19 variants have little regard for vaccine status. The daily counts tell us we are still at risk. No version of COVID-19 cares what the government says we can or cannot do.

Eschewing a COVID-19 vaccine does not release you from social responsibility to others. Regardless of government positions, we all should behave to protect ourselves and others for some indeterminate time, yet.

If you have made a personal choice to not become vaccinated, your choice is paired with a responsibility to others to do nothing that undermines their choices. You still have an obligation to behave in a manner that protects others.

We all know the drill: wear a mask when out in public and in the presence of others, wash your hands often, maintain social distance and respect other’s attempts to stay safe.

The current statistics say “it’s” not over, anywhere. We should all keep doing all the things we have learned during the past 18 months to protect ourselves and each other
