It’s two steps forward, one step back. Some areas are getting somewhat back to normal – movies are opening with reduced seating – and others are resuming the lockdown due to a spike in cases. Indoor dining is back – kind of – but some places are getting ready to keep tables outdoors, even in the winter. It’s hard to keep up!
Apparently, it’s even hard for the people in charge to keep up. The respondents so far have all mentioned the confusing patchwork of responses – or non responses – of their elected officials and even their neighbors.
And who knows what Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas or Hanukkah will be like?
What’s it like where you live? Are you back in lockdown? Are you getting whiplash keeping up with the changes? What’s open? What’s still closed? Do you feel safe? We’re keeping the comments open for a while so you can share your ‘field report” in the comments!
