tw: covid hello everyone, i wanted to get some other ppls opinions on this so here we go. every year in my province there’s a big fair held in the capital city. since it is at the end of august and we raised restrictions early/mid july, it wasn’t cancelled. i brought this up w my bf and asked if he’d want to go w me (nothings set in stone yet just smth i brought up as a possibility). if we go we’d still be masked and socially distancing as best we can. i’m on the fence tho abt actually going since i’ve been overly cautious all throughout covid and it’s hard to get rid of that mentality😅my bf and i are fully vaccinated btw. abt 70% of my province has their first dose and i believe around 50% are fully vaccinated. i guess i’m just a bit nervous abt going to big events after having been so isolated for the past 1.5 years. what are your thoughts on this?

You’re fully vaccinated, if you wear masks and try to maintain social distancing then I don’t see any issue with going at all. I know it’s a little scary getting back out there but you’ll have a great time!

Is it outdoors? Your risk personally of catching COVID is quite low because you're fully vaccinated. Whether it's responsible for your province to be holding large-scale events when cases are rising in a lot of places is a different question. But, it's totally normal to feel a little apprehensive about going out to do things again and you will all odds be completely fine!

@bluerose9 thank you! your comment is very reassuring. it’s hard getting out of that mindset but i have to start somewhere! @aurielle yes it is mainly outdoors w a few indoor events that are optional. there are only a few new cases popping up in the capital city (200k pop for ref) these days, but of course ppl all over the province will be there. thank you for your reassurance! while i’m cautious abt catching covid i also don’t want to unknowingly transmit it especially w possible variants and such😅

I think you’d be totally fine to go being vaccinated. Having said that, if I were you I would just wait until closer to the end of august to see how the cases are doing in your area. If they were going up significantly I might consider not going to the event more for the sake of others. But otherwise it sounds like fun!!

i’ll be sure to keep an eye on case numbers! there were 31 new cases today in my province and numbers have overall gone down since ppl started getting vaxxed. however, i’m going to watch carefully to see how much numbers rise since we’ve recently relaxed restrictions. thank you all for your comments! i love how helpful this forum is😊
