So my haircutter told me today she has long Covid. Has had weak lungs since childhood so she was a sitting duck for Omicron. Been sick off and on since January after a trip to Mexico, been feeling fatigued ever since. She's had to cut back her hours to half days, which is a drag because she runs her own biz. She's always been good about masking, except she hasn't upped her game from the floppy blue. Told me that the specialist she's been seeing for long covid told her MASKS DON'T WORK and we NEED TO MOVE ON. ummmm ok.... 😫 So she only wears one if the customer wears one. I wear my N95 religiously, only there for half an hour with the door open (people bringing their elderly parents in with no masks SMDH...) and just didn't want to get into the discussion with her, but I did say that I thought what he said was BULLSHIT, and sure you can get it through your eyes but why not cover up the 2/3rds of the access points whenever you can? She just shrugged and said she trusts the doctor. Well guess what? Doctors make mistakes too. So sad, but there you go. Another casualty of indifference and misinformation. We are so fucked with this Mass Casualty Event that's under way.
