The following is what I have been sharing with pre-regs in my acknowledgement email regarding ASLOK & Covid:


Basically it is our intent to proceed with a FTF ASLOK this year if permitted to do so by the regulatory agencies outside of our control. I had considered attempting to mandate vaccination and/or masks and decided I did not want to be the mask police, much less attempting to track vaccinations. My best suggestion is to get vaccinated to minimize your risk. If you either cannot or have at risk people in your home that you are worried about exposing, I hate to say it, but this is likely a good ASLOK to miss, as I do not think there is any way to lower the risk of attending to near zero unfortunately.

Note: my goal here is to present what ASLOK is planning for this year. I'm not looking to derail this thread into a Covid debate or how our policy could be improved. If you would like to share that directly, drop me an email and we can discuss offline.
I have purchased a couple cases of disposable masks and hand sanitizer to help lower the risk further. (Sorry, still not zero) - Again, not required but available for those who feel inclined.

Maybe you can enlist a local clinic/pharmacy to set up a vaccination station, as well.

I believe that would be an exercise in futility as most people have already made up their minds one way or another about vaccinations and have either already gotten them or decline to do so. Availability is not the issue, it is simply a matter of choice.

Perhaps, but
  1. Keep it front-of-mind
  2. Never give up on people

Bhattacharya's assessment of public health policy on Covid to date, with comments on the UK's Matt Hancock notion of herd immunity, the WHO, Africa, the CDC and mask efficacy, and of course, Fauci's Greatest Hits.

Bhattacharya argues that most countries inverted the traditional focussed-protection policy by protecting the lap-top class while encouraging the more vulnerable "essential-worker" class to continue working. More important, he contends that public health policies have failed in part due to the use of coercion, doing more to foster fear, confusion, and distrust than to convince the public of the need to follow public health measures. Propaganda. His word, not mine. For his thoughts on Covid vaccines and vaccine mandates, skip ahead to the 50-minute mark or so.

Triggering stuff. Viewer discretion advised. ;)
