Having a shared language about risk is an important part of being able to create a good social bubble. Dr. Evelin Decker’s Covid Care model offers a set of risk levels that you can begin to use to identify what kind of risks you are comfortable with–and what kinds of risks your potential bubble buddies are comfortable with.
You are only as safe as the biggest risk taker in your social bubble!
Honest conversations about risk tolerance are critical to creating a social bubble that respects the needs of everyone who is part of it.
Covid Risk Tolerance
Based on Evelin Dacker, MD’s model
People’s risk tolerance may based on many different factors, from their vulnerability to complications from infection to their personality to their living situation. Whatever the reasons are that you arrive at your risk tolerance level, being able to communicate it clearly is important–as is listening to and respecting the boundaries of those who have a stricter risk tolerance than you do.
