Seuda - with parents, siblings and their families. All attending including children, require either positive PCR in past 3 months, current AB test, vaccine or negative PCR within 3 days (that last one is the weak link but only effects 4-5 people.)

Don't mean to nitpick but your criteria technically includes recent positive PCR...

Obviously, recovered from Covid within 3 month (and had a positive PCR)
Google Sheet with Lakewood Covid numbers in profile for those interested.

What is in MM for a Rebbe that a little kid can carry?
You put anything in a fancy little box. With an envelope

Just donít send an envelope saying that instead of MM you made a tzedakah donation. ::)

A raisin and a sunflower seed in the fancy box, and a fat check in the envelope, right?

megilla - hopefully at a neighbor with my son laining by night, neitz in shul by day
mishloach manos -  mainly neighbors
matanos l'evyonim - through the local rabonim
seuda - immediate family and as many of our marrieds who are able to come (in case of lockdown)
my DH is now fully vaccinated, I will be getting my second dose next week.

Megilla-in Shul as Shuls in my area are all reopening to those with vaccines (well over 50% have both in my community)
MM-Regular as can be for a short Friday
Seuda-Close Family
ML-regular

As my entire family had COVID recently and confirmed antibodies, I donít plan on being too precautious, even less than last year. 

Megillah - regular shul
Tzedaka - electronically for the most part, but we need to give nicely so no one loses out by not going door to door
Seudah - with family/in-laws
MM - not concerned
Parties - canceled my party for 2nd straight year, wouldnít mind attending a friends party

For maris ayin I mask up in stores and other public places, Jewish or otherwise. But in my shul I was pretty much the last to mask. Everyone knows I had it recently while no one cares if I didnít.
