The real reason for the thread is to check if I can actually post. The topic is interesting nevertheless. There is virtually no covid in Australia, and even as the clinician I have not come across a single patient.

How are things covid wise in the US of A? I know the stats, more or less, which doesn't tell the full story. A friend of mine is an anaesthetist in California, and his impression of the epidemic is different from that in the media. So, dear American friends, how do things feel on the ground? Lockdowns? Masks? Boosters?

By the way, after I hit the "submit" button I got the message "Tried to redirect to potentially insecure url." What's up?

I'm in one of the more conservative counties in California and I see about 50/50 masked to not.

Most people I know are vaxxed. I have yet to see anyone flip out over people being too close or confronting someone else for not masking up. Just over the county line a family friend was part of like 5 people who all were more or less calling each other retarded over masks. It was at a crafts store or something I think

I will note that you'll see a lot of people masking alone on walks, in their cars etc, but nobody ever hassles anyone. Everyone pretty much just leaves each other alone up here.

Our sheriff put out a release at the beginning that they wouldn't be doing any covid enforcement ie, masks or lockdown stuff. Local police chief followed inside of a day. By last fall 2020, masks were 50/50 and then ticked down, and now back up a bit.

That's the one that kills me. Driving, alone, masked. I think some people just like to be punished. My state is full of rule-following Asian-Americans and EVERYONE wears masks in public places. It has made fuck all difference, of coarse, but there you are.

I think this accounts for a lot of the problems we have. People blame the sadists and tyrants but a lot of the horrors wouldn't happen without people's willingness to keep getting done. This includes me. It took me a long time to understand my own complicity.

As an update, I stopped by the Walmart neighborhood store and probably 80% of people were masked. Lots of people kept them on all the way to their cars from what I could tell.

I don't get it.

Here in stunning Central Oregon, people firmly don't give a fuck. I love them.
