COVID confusion

I was just disappointed that we couldn't attend a Jewish singer/songwriter's Friday night service because there was no online option, but my husband saw the big picture--the announcement mentioned a cocktail hour followed by a dinner followed by a musical service followed by an Oneg, and that made my husband wonder whether the people of that congregation understood that we're in the middle of a COVID surge.

By contrast, one Manhattan congregation that normally seats over 1,000 limited its in-person attendance to 12 people, including clergy, last Shabbat (Sabbath) morning.

New Yorkers are as conflicted as everyone else, though--I'm having trouble getting physical therapy appointments because our local PT practice fired three PTs for refusing to get vaccinated.

Whatever else the COVID-19 pandemic has done, it's made me wonder whether everyone in my country is living on the same planet.
