meh, not sure what to think at this point but I try to remain neutral.
I don't agree with the decision to shut down again but honestly at this point nothing much changes and I'll just work and chill until these 4 weeks go by. On one hand, they used the narrative of the long term care facilities for the past year or so being the biggest reason to shut down. Every LCF in the province is vaccinated now, so now they're talking about the variants of the disease and the fact that younger people are ending up in hospitals. This is true but they should also mention that a lot of people entering the hospitals with COVID now are fucking fat and have poor health to begin with. I'm feeling for restaurants and small business owners here. They haven't been able to operate their businesses properly for over a year now.
On the other hand, a vast majority of people are being irresponsible. Malls are getting packed, people are having parties, large scale gatherings, etc. I went to walmart 2 weeks ago and the amount of people I seen not wearing masks INCLUDING the employees was ridiculous. They all have the same attitude - 'trying to prove a point' and/or 'oh I'll be fine, 98% recovery rate/I don't have the virus, etc." people like that shouldn't be allowed into stores and if they are caught in a closed public area like that they should be charged for it. We can blame poor government decisions as much as we want here but this is 100% on both the government and its people. Too many self-centered and irresponsible people imo.
The next 4 weeks will go by, May will come and the lockdown will be over. Then it'll be June when most people will be getting the vaccine. I think there's a lot to look forward to, I try to remain optimistic. I'm buying a motorcycle in a few months so I'm already excited.
