Our healthcare system spent several million dollars installing these barriers in our hospitals and clinics, based on the infection prevention recommendations at the time. I wonder if the epidemiology/infection prevention folks will recommend they be removed.  As a hard of hearing person, it certainly makes my life more difficult trying to hear someone on the other side of the barrier.

As a not hard of hearing (though I have the old guy hearing going on) guy, I found it difficult to hear people behind masks and barriers. I'm sure I annoyed plenty of people with, "Speak up, sonny!"   :laugh:

I just get within that 6' zone and say in my scratchy old man's voice - "Eh?  What's that you say?"  :old: >:D

Over the weekend, there were posts with pictures/video of them shaking hands and standing close together after the showboating was over.

I don't usually agree with Jon Stewart, but he is a whole lot funnier than the rest of them.

Mainly because they're trying to BE him and failing.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Dr. Fauci on COVID lab leak theory: “We’ve always said ‘keep an open mind and continue to look.’ So I think it’s a bit of a distortion to say that we deliberately suppressed that.”
