Some things don't jive. I think is can almost be categorized as cognitive dissonance although probably not precisely. If that doesn't fit, incongruity sure does.
As you already know we dined out for the first time, just last week. Then, on Monday, we went back to exercise class for the very first time. I also read an article about how well the province is doing. But when I went to the grocery store I noticed a large sign at the entrance: Only one visit per week by only one person per family. Shauna informs me that it has been somewhere all along and that they must have just moved it. But it was so ominous and incongruous in light of developments. It is time for that sign to come down. No one is adhering to it in any case.
It doesn't make any sense to keep it on display. Things are loosening up a bit, and we all have our vax passports. Sue and I are onboard with caution and have been pretty much as careful as possible for a year and a half, but sheesh! it's time to take take baby steps back toward normality.
Following is some of the news in the article to which I referred, above.
- The province had had fewer than 500 new cases/day for the past week. Note: less that 400 for the past two days with only 328, yesterday.
- There have been 0 deaths in that span. Note: there have been a few since then.
- Approximately 83.1 per cent of the eligible population 12 years and older is fully vaccinated which makes it 73 per cent of everybody, even including the unvaccinated under 12s.
