For the past year and a half, humans around the world have been asked to do something we’re pretty bad at, even in the best of circumstances: figure out what constitutes safety, and act accordingly.

Vaccination was a reprieve from this calculus of personal danger,
at least for a while—get vaccinated, get your family and friends vaccinated, get back to a far more normal version of life.

Vaccinated people are still far safer than they’ve been for most of the past year

and a half, and the unvaccinated are in even more danger


The Delta variant is, in some respects, a whole new ball game.

What rules are we playing by now?
