I know I am the resident C19 worry wart for some of you but....
With Omicron as the dominant strain, I will forever question your intelligence if you go to a movie theatre right now. Maybe not your intelligence so much as your survival instincts. A movie is not a good reason to possibly be exposed to a quickly mutating pandemic. Use your brains people, you will live longer. Sure, Omicron isn't AS fatal, but if you are dying from C19....is there any movie you can imagine that would have been worth it?
But let's say you're in the "hurr durr I wants tuh normalz" crowd and you survive a COVID infection. Congratulations, you just signed up to be part of the Long COVID test group! Your prizes*
are waiting for you! So come on down!
Personally, I don't give a shit if someone is "pandemic fatigued". Suck it up, princess, keep your shit wired tight, and carry on. Nobody gives a fuck about how you feel. This isn't kindergarten and you can virtually visit with a licensed therapist if you just can't possibly keep your shit wired tight. As much of a misanthrope as I am, I have no interest in joining the infantile, irresponsible dickhead brigade who just has to go to concerts, theatres, bars, restaurants, etc so I can kill the immunocompromised, the elderly, and kids.
