June 29 – It is not normal

Sorry, not sorry

The pandemic is not over, but an awful lot of people think it is. While I am glad for the positive attitudes, we should not want to end up like Florida. I have seen people in the area going about their summers as though nothing had changed, a dozen cars (some from out of state) packed into driveways as people travel and gather. Traveling and gathering is how you spread a virus. Look at the map of cumulative cases and see how it is even spreading into the wilds of Coos County now. As tourists ignore warnings and travel from Connecticut to the White Mountains, it could escalate. Please, do what you can to minimize the spread so that we can minimize the regulations. ~ Steve
