I know people who have been very careful up to now, but now they are living like there is no Covid. Some of these people are elderly so I don't get it. I am living my life like I did when the pandemic first showed itself, basically I stay home except to the grocery store or the doctor's office. Have not had lunch or dinner with friends in 3 years. I miss that. No dining in restaurants: miss that, but like you, I really really don't want even a "mild" version of Covid----and I don't believe we should just live with it, but that is where we are now--- and the CDC has apparently thrown in the towel and gone along with that concept.
All the people I know who were vaxxed and boosted and got COVID had pretty severe cases. Most were not bad enough to go to the doctor, but all had the high fever, fatigue and problems breathing, usually for a few weeks duration. Most were people who enjoy going out to eat a lot. I'll pass on it and order out.
We recently took a 2 week trip to Europe and came home w/ no COVID, primarily because the countries we visited encouraged masking indoors and the airlines we traveled on had strict mask rules, especially for the overseas part of the flight.
