We formally resumed our common meals in June -- we'd had some spontaneous outdoor potlucks for a few weeks before that. We've always had a Sunday cooked dinner and a potluck dinner on Wednesdays, and went back to that schedule. We hadn't managed to have a cooked meal every Sunday but have done pretty well considering it's summer, when common meals have always been sparse. Quite a few people carry their plate and place setting out to the CH back deck or screened-in side porch, especially if they have unvaccinated young children, or just because it's pleasant (if warm) outside.
