I’m watching COVID stats closely, daily, to make a decision about going to Cabo next month. We’d really like to go, but launching ourselves into a hotspot with 40X the positivity rate of 2-3 months ago, *and* in a place where I don’t want to be at the mercy of an unknown health care system, isn’t appealing.
Today was the first day in a while that the positivity rate trend looked like it’s going the right direction. It’ll take several more days of downward trends before I feel OK about making the trip.
In general I’m feeling good about doing “normal” things in San Diego, being vaxxed and boosted. Get-togethers with friends, going to restaurants, etc. I don’t think mortality is likely if (when?) Omicron gets me and I trust the health care systems here, though I don’t want to add to their work burden. But going out of the country is a whole different level of risk. And southern Baja is a pretty rough place after you get out of the resorts – not somewhere I want to be sick and quarantined.
