On March 9, CDC released guidelines stating that a group of fully vaccinated people can gather indoors unmasked. Junior Emily Jacoby said that even though people will be able to gather more safely later this year, she hopes they will still proceed with caution.
“We still need to work through it slowly and just make sure everybody’s staying safe,” Jacoby said. “But I think the first thing people are going to want to do is just spend time with each other again.”
Vaccines are becoming more widely available. On March 29, the vaccine became available for all people 16 and up, which Hart said will help improve people’s mental health.
“As a psychologist, one thing I know for sure about life is that everything changes,” Hart said. “While we might not be sure how things are going to change, I know that it won’t be like this forever.”
