Is anyone else seeing this trend that doing anything at all is socially unacceptable EXCEPT skiing vacations?
We are moderately COVID careful meaning we do not go anywhere or mingle socially with anyone but we do send our kids to in person school. So I feel like I'm about middle of the road cautious here in NYC.
When I see or hear of other people going on vacation, there seems to be a general distaste for it. As if any travel at all is irresponsible. I can see both sides of that issue so I don't really care one way or another. The thing that I find odd is the very same people who are SUPER COVID careful (no in person school, wash down groceries, won't order take out, etc) seem to be the very same people that are all going skiing. The explanation being "skiing is outdoors". As if walking through a hotel lobby or getting gas or any of the in person interactions you must do to "go skiing" doesnt count. Those same people get annoyed when someone goes to Mexico or Florida. Isn't sitting at the beach and the pool also equally outdoors? If anything you can be more socially distanced in warm weather than you can in cold.
Anyone else feel this is the most bizarre double standard?
