Really weird time

I started a new job this year. And it's unlike any work environment I've ever been in. Their Covid protocols have been weak with no one wearing a mask inside an office of 20 ppl. Because of this, I am double masked, and feel like I stick out like a sore thumb. Normally I am very social esp. at a new workplace, but I don't want to sit and each lunch with any of my new colleagues because I'm so worried about Omicron. Those random coffee walks with colleagues of workplaces past? Just can't get into it even if we're all masked. A water cooler chat is weird with masks. I still do it to make an effort, but I don't feel like I'm getting to know people when I can't see 2/3 of their faces. And because their Covid protocols have been weak, people have gotten Covid, then they cleared out the office. WFH for the next month or 2 now. Suffice to say starting a new job with a pandemic in full throttle is a strange experience.

Good thing you can work from home, sounds like an irresponsible environment. You might want to slowly find somewhere better.

I'd like a job in a normal environment with normal people like that.

Double masked?

No offence, and maybe this response won't be allowed, but there was only 1 time in two years I saw people double mask. it was about 2 weeks before the American election and it looked like the bad man might win. Fauci started wearing double masks. I work at two high contact jobs with many many many people of varying spectrums of concern for Covid, and there is exactly zero double masked people out of maybe 900 people between both jobs.

Of your confession is legit but you say no one is masked and also that you can’t see 2/3 of anyones face so hard to understand what’s your deal but pandemic times are crazy. Good luck to you and us all frankly

I noticed that too,sounds like a phony confession: "no one wearing a mask " followed by "I can't see 2/3 of their faces".

Or maybe OP has the mask pulled pulled up so high that it obscures 2/3rds of their eyes lol.
