My Take: By Gordon Lambie

Since the beginning of this pandemic, I have lived my life under the assumption that I am going to get sick at some point.
It hasn’t happened yet, but I still hold that idea in my mind because I don’t want to fall into the trap of thinking anything I am doing makes me, or anyone else, perfectly safe.
Knowing that there is no absolute protection from infection does not mean that it is okay to throw caution to the wind, but it also means recognizing that there is a range of risks out there, and that some people have more choice in what they can avoid than others.
It is easy to broadcast shame and judgement onto other people because of the fact that they got sick, but generally speaking people don’t go out and seek infection because it sounds like a good time.
