    Vaccines do not prevent spread of Omicron. Even having had Covid previously and being double vaccinated and being boosted do not prevent spread of Omicron. You can get it and you can - with or...

    Masks are largely theater and are not effective according to the literature though people get upset if you say so out loud. I would probably play as long as N95 masks were not the requirement. I...
