74% Of Americans Say Their Lives Have Returned To Normal From COVID

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

How about you? Is your life back to normal? Mostly? Or are you one of those who’ve been vaccinated and wear a mask even when alone in the car?

Poll: As winter COVID surge begins, 74 percent of Americans say their lives have returned to ‘normal’

Even though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on, nearly three-quarters of Americans (74 percent) now say their lives have returned to “normal,” according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.

It’s a number that underscores both the progress made possible by safe and effective vaccines and the challenges ahead as the holidays approach and yet another winter wave gets underway in the United States.

The survey of 1,696 adults, which was conducted from Nov. 17 to 19, found that only 15 percent say that things “never stopped being normal” for them — a reminder of just how profoundly the virus has disrupted American life.

Yet as the U.S. pandemic enters its 21st month, most Americans now characterize their own lives as either “very normal” (21 percent) or “somewhat normal” (53 percent), considering “the impact of COVID-19.”

I’ll say it’s somewhat normal. Except there are still masking restrictions in my town, and the one I go to a lot that’s right next door. And there are things we do, and don’t do right now, at work. I’m perfectly fine with some social distancing, no shaking hands, no hugs. I don’t go the movies, but, then, there are almost no ones worth seeing in the theater (I would go to the afternoon showing, so, there would be very few people there). Of course, if we’re talking about the economic aftereffects, then we’re all affected. #LetsGoBrandon

Far fewer say their lives are either “not very normal” (19 percent) or “not normal at all” (7 percent).

In that light, a return to “normal” may seem premature — and for many, it very well could be. A full 70 percent of unvaccinated Americans, for instance — the people who continue to account for nearly all COVID hospitalizations and deaths — describe their own lives as normal, and about a quarter of them say their lives are “very normal” (25 percent) or “never stopped” being normal to begin with (27 percent). That’s more than the number of vaccinated Americans who say the same (19 percent and 8 percent, respectively).

Well, that’s why a lot of them are getting really sick and dying. COVID19 is real, and if you didn’t take protections, well, that’s on you.

Likewise, nearly two-thirds of unvaccinated Americans (65 percent) now say that COVID poses either a “small” threat (31 percent) or “no” threat (34 percent) to them personally, and just 42 percent of unvaccinated Americans — compared to 63 percent of fully vaccinated Americans — say they wear a mask in public always or most of the time.

And these 63% are the loons. If you’re vaccinated why wear a mask? These are most likely also the people who remove the mask to talk to someone in close quarters and then hug/bro hug. They’re the ones double masking and losing their shit when other people aren’t wearing a mask. Wearing it in the car. Wearing it but leaving their nose uncovered. Wearing a mask that makes almost no difference.

At the same time, however, it’s important to note that 71 percent of U.S. adults have been fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — and for them, returning to normal was both the point and the promise of getting vaccinated in the first place.

Yeah, that was the entire point, and the Powers That Be have worked hard to change the terms of why you get the vaccine, keeping restrictions on those who are vaccinated, scaring them into Complying.

And while only 30 percent of registered voters said they were planning to gather indoors with family and friends last Thanksgiving, 57 percent now say that’s how they’re planning to celebrate this year.

A lot of people are just over it. Over the Government restrictions, the over the top scaremongering. COVID is still dangerous. You might not die, you might not even get that sick, but, the effects can last for a long time. Being such hysterics, along with all over the place messaging, has made people tune out.

That goes a long way toward explaining why 77 percent of Democrats wear a mask most of the time in public, compared to just 31 percent of Republicans — despite the fact that similar numbers of Democrats (76 percent) and Republicans (82 percent) describe their own lives as normal.

Democrats like Government telling them what to do, and are the problem. Pure moonbat hysterics.

How to reconcile the return to normalcy with continued caution and even pessimism about the pandemic itself? Increasingly, Americans are learning to “live with” COVID by distinguishing between the risks to themselves and the risks to others.

Which is what they need to do. It’s not going fully away (thanks, China!). Live with it. So will be hysterics for years, though.

      After deportation trains arrived at the killing centers, guards ordered the deportees to get out and form a line. The victims then went through a selection process. Men were separated from women and children. A Nazi, usually an SS physician, looked quickly at each person to decide if he or she was healthy and strong enough for forced labor. This SS officer then pointed to the left or the right; victims did not know that individuals were being selected to live or die. Babies and young children, pregnant women, the elderly, the handicapped, and the sick had little chance of surviving this first selection.
