The Village at Gainesville, my retirement center, has just announced that starting immediately, any fully vaccinated residents need not wear masks indoors anymore or keep 6' distance, and all facilities would be open at 100% occupancy."

"No mask? NO MASK!!!"

Our social-justice community choir here in Toronto have now not
rehearsed live since March 2020. We have been rehearsing over Zoom,
recorded our parts of three songs to a click track just as you did, and
combined them with some older video to put a combined concert up on
YouTube. Anybody can watch/listen at commonthreadchorus.ca/concerts
until 26 June. I'm the bearded guy in the plaid shirt on the newly
recorded  songs (not really new to us, but the recordings are.)

Hoping to resume live in September, but next January is more likely.
