I was about to say congrats to Peru (and Brazil) for not hiding excess deaths ... but they could just be reporting every death remotely linked to covid as covid ... for political reasons. Just a different political strategy from Russia.

I went to the local food co-op yesterday and thought "I'm wearing a mask, I don't care if nobody else is" and it was such a relief to see a "please wear a mask" sign on the door and everyone inside complying.

This morning I went to the first healthcare appointment in recent memory that didn't require masks. :shocked:

Are MRI technicians automatically immune or something?

I'm mildly surprised, because in Washington state, everybody's still wearing masks in healthcare here. Do you live in a state where they've relaxed all the rules and you got a shitty anti-mask MRI technician?

(It probably - probably - doesn't affect their ability to conduct an MRI, but that doesn't make them less shitty if they're anti-mask.)

Same here. Yesterday I set up an appointment with my cardiologist in MAY and they said be sure to wear a mask.

Tennessee hasn't had the greatest track record when it comes to masking and vaccinations. But most healthcare places I've been to always ALWAYS required masks even when vaccinated.

Maybe this is behind the relaxation:
HealthWeather for my area

For the click-shy, the link shows an illness risk of 38%.
In the midst of the pandemic that number was 99% every day.

I fired my pharmacy over that. The very day mask mandate dropped because the pandemic was over last summer I went in to pick up a script, no one wearing masks. In a pharmacy. Where sick people go for medicine. In my head I immediately called into question every aspect of their judgment and assumed everything they did was bare minimum and only grudgingly.

I could just roll my eyes at wait staff maybe, or cashiers, but nope, I hold medical professionals to a higher standard than that, especially when it's for services that are frequented by the immunocompromised.

I just picked up my script, paid for it, never sent my scripts there again. I wasn't even going to argue with them as A: they should know better. B: you never know when some of these guys will abruptly go nuts in your face.

Things can change. Two months ago, I scheduled my procedure for this past Monday, they also booked a COVID screening, but then they cancelled the screening. I still had to wear a mask.
