What people are saying?
Michael Buchanan Correct. Everyone needs to stay home. Never go outside. never go into any building where another person is. Even if vaxxed and masked, the virus can still spread. We need people to stay safe.
whoisthat Good decision. Vaccines are working. People in the league are not dying or becoming seriously ill. Vax’ed people can still spread it to the unvaxed, so keeping them away is smart. It’s a better idea than the unvax’ed idea, which is always “do nothing”.
