This will be my first month back in the air in what seems like forever. My trips will be limited and no matter what the local / state policies are (or are not) I will follow all the wise precautions recommended by the CDC. Even though I am fully vaccinated now and unlikely to spread the virus to others, I will take extra steps just to be sure.
But there are things I am really fearful of.
Anti-Vaxers! I have just about zero patience for anyone who is unwilling to get inoculated (other than those who have a real medical reason preventing them from getting one). These people, i.e. anti-vaxers, are the reason we “can’t have nice things” as they say. They are the ones who will keep us – likely for many YEARS to come – fighting this killer bug.
And there are others?
Fakers! Clearly, as I have posted before, making a backup or even a fake version of the CDC vaccination card is very very simple. But those who fake them should know it is against the law (knock knock – FBI at your door). The other thing that frightens me is those faking COVID tests but that, thankfully, is landing a bunch of folks in prison with large fines.
They need to do more.
I would love something like a minimum of one year in jail for anyone who fakes any kind of COVID test or official vaccine card from any country in the world. That and a $10,000 fine would perhaps make these fools think twice about risking our safety with fake information.
Sadly, due to so many misinformed Anti-Vaxers it is starting to look like COVID may be around forever and we will simply have to manage the never-ending health crisis it will create. I will be PROUD to show off every year I am getting whatever COVID “booster” shot to prevent me from becoming part of the problem when new variants pop up due to so many refusing to do the right thing and get the proven safe vaccine.
While I stand by my post that getting on an NCL ship will be the safest way to travel for the near future – I know there will be issues. I know there will be some who try to break the rules and get away with it but thankfully the NCL “rules” when you buy a ticket are lawyered up and without compromise and will make me feel very safe onboard.
That said, I am thinking about sometime in 2022 doing an all-inclusive resort but I am not sure it would be safe at this point. Nor do I know if planning to extend or re-qualify my Delta Diamond Status is safe or a good idea this year or next due to so many refusing to do the right thing!
What do you think? Are you fully vaccinated now? Are you fearful of what the rest of 2021 or 2022 will bring? Are you booking now but considering backing out due to the spread of COVID-19? – René
