I cannot believe that May is finally over. May has been a slow month, one filled with curfews, semi-lockdowns and working from home. The best part for me is working from home. Fewer distractions and more flexibility and it provide me more time to read.
I don’t mind staying home, but I dread the long lines I have to face when I go shopping for essentials. It is a nightmare and the whole concept of social distancing gets thrown out the door. Don’t get me started on the requirements of wearing masks. Those things will kill you quicker than any virus. I only wear one when I enter a place of business.
The curfews and the lock downs are not good for our struggling economy. Several persons have lost their jobs, tourism and the export market has taken a hit because of the closing of the ports. Schools will remain closed until September. Online classes have become the norm, but the drawback to that is not every household can afford internet service so some students are at a disadvantage. Businesses are slowly returning to normal and churches are allowed to reopen, but members are required to wear masks.
At the time of writing this post there were no recent cases of COVID-19, for which I am grateful, but I know we cannot become complacent as it seems this virus will be here for quite some time.
