You get your "talking points" from Langley or DHS?I would suggest you use your little grey cells a bit more. You are using the same tired old arguments that are spewed out by hateful radio pundits who make good money fomenting ignorance.
Walmart is often used for this. Have you been inside a Walmart? How big is the building? How much time are you inside? Are you singing while in Walmart? The size of a building, the time spent inside, and the use of it all matter. I feel pretty safe in our Walmarche because they have cracked down and really require mask wearing inside, and I go early in the morning when the store is pretty empty. I've not seen any people sitting close together singing as is done in church. Look up the church choir in the Seattle area where the virus spread and killed part of the choir.
The mortality rate may not be much in the big picture until somebody in your family dies from it. The virus is also killing healthy people--again, you need to READ more on this. If you are not killed by it, you can still have nasty side effects again READ some articles about those.
It isn't easy to follow the safety protocol. Our orchestra can only play via Skype and my computer is on its last legs and won't do it. Music festivals were cancelled, etc. It isn't easy. Men on this forum tend to give the impression that they are tough. I see different when it comes to dealing with this. Here's a newspaper article from a Seattle web paper that you can READ. The part I would emphasize is the timeline given. Exposed at Thankgiving, hospitalized, dead at Christmas, New Year's spent planning the funeral. That's the holiday season that is coming up.
