I have been to two restaurants now that checked my vaccine status and my ID. At first it’s a bit weird showing new forms of identification but then I realized it’s an assurance that the people in the restaurant with me, eating and drinking with their masks off, are most likely vaccinated, just like me. I say “most likely” because there’s always a chance some moron has found a way to fake their status.
Before, you couldn’t tell who was or wasn’t vaccinated, but sitting in these two restaurants, I felt more assured than before that it was safer to be inside and enjoying a meal.
I am looking forward to feeling safer in more situations as time progresses.
