I am sitting in the waiting room of a local urgent care center…waiting to take a COVID rapid test.
We have been invited to attend the bar-mitzvah of the grandson of close friends this weekend. Although we’ve heard of people being asked to show vaccination proof and be tested before attending an event, this is our first.
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this adventure, but having made the commitment to share this meaningful event with our friends, there is comfort in knowing that everyone there will be vaccinated and tested. In addition to checking on their guests, our hosts have assured us that all staff at the venue are vaccinated and are taking other precautions.Finally, in addition to the traditional head coverings, masks will be required during services.
And when we raise our glasses in toast, l’ll add a little something about the new normal.
