Although all the COVID experts keep reminding us that we have to remain vigilant, it seems that many of us are suffering from what is called “pandemic precaution fatigue.” Have you let your guard down a bit? Done things that you wouldn’t do just a few weeks ago? I still am very cautious, but I am doing a few things I had stopped doing. I’m going into stores more often, and I even ate dinner at an outdoor restaurant! Wild, right? How about you?
See ya on the Net,
