March 13th can't get here quick enough.

Haven't been wearing a mask for more than 6 months now and the sky still hasn't fallen on my head. You don't have to wait for the 13th man. Just go for it, even a few days earlier. You won't regret it and I guarantee the outcome will be the same. You will either get it or not, be it before that date or after it.

Once the staff finally can remove their face cloths, then I will patronize their restaurants. Otherwise, it is too dystopian and depressing. Can the magic plastic shielding and curtains finally go away, too? Looking forward to Monday 13, and later, May. May we please return to normal?

Today  04:41 pm JST “ If everyone just does the right things, we can flatten this curve in just 2 weeks.

Let's Go - Covid Zero.

We are in this together.

Staying apart - Keeps us together.

People wrongly thought they were 'fully vaccinated' at 2 doses - May not be enough to stop transmission.

Hopefully by Monday the 13th, people will stay true to their paths. “

That was three, two years ago…; covid will be just like influenza and we will need to learn how to live with this virus…; actually, there’s not much that we can do…; just live your life accordingly and use some common sense…; it’s not realistic to say something like “covid zero” because this virus is here to stay…;

as for the masks, things will be different after the downgrade, in Maybut we will start seeing some changes from Monday, March 13…; (it’s up to you, if you wanna keep wearing your mask or not…)

Wow, it’s gone endemic! Can’t be long before it bottoms out to join the myriad other viruses including other pre-2019 coronaviruses that also contribute to countless annual deaths but don’t get any media coverage as they are the status quo.

Rory, "Nothing will change..." until when? How long is this useless masking going to go on for? "Asking for a friend."

Rory, that is about the status. Nothing to do with science, or reality. Someone earlier suggested that the solution was for the government to mandate a "no more masking/plastic" for people to ditch both.
