Japanese people are still wearing masks inside and out.

( Yokohama station, Saturday )

But three years in, I can’t do it any more.

The government is set to relax the regulations next month.

I have been told in my company it will probably be two more years

    I feel for you. Indeed a flower trod upon!!
    Especially someone whose nose is the most cherished of the senses.
    I can’t offer you anything but sympathy.

    Here in DC, I still choose to wear it closed in places like the supermarket and public transportation, but not when I’m just walking down the street.

    • This is called common sense.

      I wish there were more of it about.

    • This blog will attest to the fact that I have been the opposite of an anti-masker/vaxxer from day one, but after a while you just can’t breathe any more and I worry about the society here just making it the norm – which it absolutely already is. I feel suffocated!

      • I totally get you. I still wear it to err on the side of caution, but after three long years I feel suffocated too. They’re going to officially lift the public health advisory here in May, so I guess that’t when I’ll decide to completely let go of the mask. I already have a million vaccinations so we’ll see how well they work then, sigh.

      • Sigh indeed.

        But glad we are still here x

    Two years! My goodness. No wonder you feel claustrophobic. I really do feel for you. Xx

  4. I will continue to mask when I need to go out for appointments. I am a completely different situation, though.
