Restaurants opened to indoor diners in Minnesota Wednesday with limited capacity. Naturally, my wife wanted to go out to eat to celebrate the occasion.

I thought it over, and while I wish it was not the case, I am not quite ready for all that just yet. I am concerned about being in confined quarters with strangers still, despite the numbers showing that the virus is, at least, in a plateau stage.

It's hard to know what to believe when it comes to COVID-19. There's no denying that it is a real virus that has killed over 100,000 people in the United States.

However, the CDC and WHO keep changing their tune about things we were told in the infancy of this pandemic.

First, a mask wouldn't help. Now they are required in many places.

Even if you are asymptomatic, you might transmit the virus to your grandma and kill her. Now, it's "very rare" for asymptomatic people to spread the virus.

In the beginning, surfaces were hot spots for the virus. They even showed all that footage from China of the people in haz-mat suits spraying sanitizer all through town. Now, it's 'not easy to get the virus from a surface.'

In the end, my wife and I compromised and ate outside on the patio. The food was good but it was a little uncomfortable for me still. I'm not even sure what exactly I am worried about at this point.

Ashli had a great time and it was nice to have some sense of normalcy, whatever that means these days.

So, are you ready to return to in-store dining? Let us know by taking the poll!
