Relax a Little

There is actually not much to report today, and that feels good. NH has gone through a painful, but careful process and we are looking forward to an easing of the restrictions this week. I was out yesterday on a trail. We’ve seen people being respectful of each others’ space and keeping their distance. As long as we don’t just drop all our precautions, I’m hopeful that we are on a path back to a less restricted life. It is beautiful out today, go do something, but be careful out there. We don’t want to end up like Arizona or Florida. ~ Steve

PHOENIX — Almost a month since Arizona’s stay-at-home order was lifted, more than a handful of restaurants, at least one brewpub, and a comic shop in the Phoenix area have reported potential COVID-19 exposures.

As a result, some businesses have temporarily closed, again, sometimes for a few days, one for two weeks, and others until they feel it is safe to reopen again. Others have undergone deep cleanings, according to posts on their Facebook pages.
