In person classes for students only the teachers will be doing it from home. So it’s safe enough to send all the kids back to school, but the teachers can’t be bothered to go back to in person classes.

San Francisco county has 875,000 people and had 26 new Covid cases on Tuesday. If it’s not safe for kids and teachers to be in the same room when will it be?

It will never be able to fully escape. We'll just need a booster.

And that's if you're talking about complete immunity from every being infected in the first place.


If you're good with allowing an infection to take hold, but then be defeated before any serious disease can occur, then your original vax is probably still good enough there.

Great news!

But please, we need to continue with double-mask mandates and limited/restricted activities across the board for JUST another month or two. Seriously, just another 1 or 2 months should REALLY do it this time.

Flatten the curve
So mask wearing plays no role whatsoever in helping with the low mortality rates? The combination of vaccination and mask wearing/social distancing could all but wipe this virus out, if people would actually try to wipe it out instead of pretending it doesn't exist or isn't a problem.

Imagine entire cities ran by and inhabited by individuals like the poster above you. Non-stop propaganda, misinformation, or dubious use of selective facts.

The only way back to “normal“ is with vaccination and natural immunitymshich will eventually be achieved everywhere around the globe except perhaps Christmas Island.

Right, eventually....for all of our sakes, I want this to be done in as short a timespan as practical while mitigating disease and death. If we really want to get back to normal life, the easiest/fastest/safest way is to vaccinate, wear masks, and socially distance.

Sorry Dude. I already got my vaccine. Then again, I posted in this thread - so maybe that means I'm lying about that?
Are you JoJo's only voter? Actually you probably were. Never mind. I'm glad you got the shot!

No, I wasn’t. All sorts of people voted for JoJo for no reason other than the 2 main candidates weren’t worth a vote.
