Starting this week, in certain parts of the hospitals and at certain meetings, if you're double vaccinated, you do not have to wear a mask.
Clearly, patient care areas are out. And any and all exits and entrances are too.
I can already unmask in my office, because it's my office and no one else is in there. But anywhere else I've been going, I mask up.
The floor on which I work is non-patient care, and there is still a high hybrid of work from home, so at any given time there are usually a dozen of less folks on the entire floor. On my wing? Maybe three, including myself.
Still, I have always worn a mask, and currently still do. Though yesterday, I ventured to the Wizz Palace, which is directly across from me - and I didn't don a mask. Granted, I was the only one on my wing, but still I thought it quite daring.
Ironically - or not - one of the people who works for me and is seemingly always masked called me today to say she has Strep Throat.
We will see how this goes. I expect people to either outwardly abuse this right or absent-mindedly do the wrong thing at the wrong time in the wrong place. Either way, I think I'll be good.
