The pandemic is surging/resurging in some areas and retreating in others; authorities say it’s a matter of how seriously the locals are about taking precautions: social distancing, wearing masks, hand sanitizers, etc. In NYC, for instance, restaurants were preparing to open for in-house dining, only to have the Governor pull back indefinitely because of the lack of compliance among some party animals; other states are re-instituting limits as well….all because some folks won’t take precautions seriously.
So how about it – are people taking it seriously where you live? Wearing masks in stores? Keeping socially distant? How is it affecting your day to day life? Let us know in the comments!
