You bring up a good point. The world has changed. Reopening now isn't
really the same as going back to pre-COVID times. Aside from people in the
high risk group you mention, I imagine most people will remain far more
cautious -- doing things like correct handwashing, rethinking going in
public with a cough, being aware of people who are coughing*, and the like.
So, reopening simply won't be the same as going back to 2019.
