I have heard some of your comments about reopening the Senior Center’s building. I haven’t heard of any sure proof ways of doing it that would allow all those who wish to return the ability to do so safely.
It is quite amazing how the senior population is doing so much better at accepting this new way of living. Accepting the new rules and regulations such as wearing a face mask, social distancing, avoiding crowded areas such as sandy beaches, concerts, demonstrations, etc., is paramount in corralling this virus.
By now, I do hope you have had the chance to have your hair cut, dyed, permed, styled. That was a long time coming for many of us. Luckily when you’re away from people, the hair doesn’t seem as important. It’s only important if you haven’t had a chance to get it done as yet.
It appears that California is tightening up on some of the phase two openings. No more gyms, hair salons, bars, indoor dining, and more. If you are planning on venturing out, call ahead to check and make sure the establishment is open.
Hopefully you have figured out ways to communicate with your neighbors and family members without touching and breathing on one another. This Zoom is proving to be quite helpful in staying in touch with talking, moving humans. Of course, one never quite knows when it is their turn to talk!
This insanity will pass, and hopefully we are all here to celebrate that day. Continue to stay smart, thus staying healthy. We shall prevail. If you are interested in being tested for Covid-19, check out Project Baseline.
