Health professionals on the mental toll of returning to shows mid-pandemic

Andrew Noymer, associate public health professor, University of California Irvine: “Herd immunity doesn’t mean everybody is vaccinated. It means most people are vaccinated, and the other people are riding on the backs of those who are vaccinated. If you’re vaccinated, you can go out to the concerts. Wear a mask and be a nice person if the venue tells you to. If the venue doesn’t tell you, then don’t, if you don’t want to. The nuance is in the fall and winter. I do expect COVID to come back. I don’t expect it to come back as severely as before.”
