With progress in controlling COVID-19, mask and social distancing regulations have largely been eliminated.
However, while diminished, the risk of infection and death persists in the absence of vaccination. In patronizing businesses that provide goods or services indoors, smart customers will, therefore, prefer those who can truthfully advertise "employees 100% vaccinated."
Businesses should still require that unvaccinated employees and customers wear masks.
Sensible customers will in turn will continue to be masked unless all employees and other customers of the businesses they patronize are either masked or vaccinated.
