The truth is they are still going on! I don’t think anyone should have the right to force you to get tested, forced to wear a mask and forced to get vaccinated after three years. I’m just like, let’s end this nonsense. This is not fair to the staff. I don’t have to wear a mask. Why should they? Why should they be vaccinated? How is that not for a person? I shouldn’t talk about this [expletive]. This infuriates the staff. The anarchist part of me doesn’t think we should have forced testing, forced concealment and forced vaccination. It is not a free country. Actually I am talking about the staff. Because I can come out wearing a mask. I can test less. I’m not in the position they are in, but that’s wrong. It’s been three years. stop
