That’s crazy. People who have to relocate have to worry about being arrested? 

Last week Sarah Jane (“Wonderhussy” or WH for short) and her friend Barry drove cross-country to NYC–yep, the Belly of the Beast!–to empty out his apartment there. I’m surprised they didn’t get arrested, but they stayed a couple of days, got margharitas to go, ordered pizza. No problem. 

Maybe people in your state will start to do what others in the country are now doing–blowing off the quarantines.

Today, I was in a store where the employees were no longer made to wear masks. Everyone was relaxed.  It’s got to be hell, to have your face covered like that all day.

Anyway, it’s definitely opening here, with no set backs that I’ve seen.

Finally, there are plans/dates when restaurants will be reopening. More retail venues are opening their doors. I much prefer purchasing in store. 

Even though we are permitted to visit people now, I am being very cautious as there has been recent outbreaks. I am not ready to put a welcome sign on my front door yet. This is a very unpredictable, filthy virus, and it’s really better to try and dodge the bullet. Unfortunately, until there is a reliable, consistent treatment or a vaccine, I have to live with caution. The stats on active cases and locations will help guide my decisions.

We’re still locked down in NJ and people are so tired of it, so bring on the civil disobedience!

Our Gov. Murphy finally introduced his 4 part plan to the “new normal”.  He continues to treat the entire state who have very few cases like the big urban cities and people have had enough.  We’ve been locked up for over 8 weeks and still have a curfew.  Looking at this new plan, many things won’t even be open in June.

One gym owner in South Jersey decided he’s opening and though he complied with all the social distancing, etc., they cited him anyway for disobeying our out of control Governor’s orders.  South Jersey has very few cases.  This fight is not going to end well for Gov Murphy.  There is no way he is going to control the crowds at the Jersey Shore on Memorial Day Weekend.

Our local hospital system is seeing its COVID-19 patient number rise a bit, but that’s hardly surprising. As people start coming together again, we will see that. But we also have treatments with a lot of potential. Also, we’re headed into summer. Maybe that will help keep the numbers down. 

We still have to be careful. Yes, it’s very likely this will not ever be contained, and nearly all of us will contract SARS-CoV-2 at some point, no matter how careful each of us are. But there has to be an end to the pandemic at some point. Hospital nurses and doctors working with these patients are burning out, and probably tired of having to strip down, throw their clothes in the washer, wipe down every single surface they touch, and hide out from their families day after day after week after week, alone. Do we expect them to quarantine themselves forever?

What about the elderly and immuno-compromised? Are they supposed to hide out in their homes for the rest of their lives and pray they don’t get sick, while the rest of us get to do whatever we want? A lot of them have jobs and responsibilities like younger, healthier people do. I see old people out and about all the time now. They’re tired of being cooped up, too.

We’re in Phase One since this past Friday and it’s a county by county basis. Guidelines are strict on who can reopen and who can’t. You can’t have any current hospitalizations and you must have the medical capacity to treat any cases.

The local hospital system’s numbers have dropped, and yet things are almost back to normal here. So maybe those of us who have been concerned were a bit paranoid. 

At least the numbers are coming down though! I wonder if the recent Remdesivir shipment helped knock some of these cases out. 🙂

I was thinking things were almost, sorta coming back to normal in SW Colorado.  Then just drove 650 miles into Wyoming.  The small towns are busier, but I-70 in Colorado was eerily empty.  On this route 100 miles, between fairly large towns.  Not the usual number of semi-trucks.  I-80 in Rock Springs was slammed, but only on this route in town, for a few miles.  Back roads almost deserted.  Truck stop almost deserted, only one employee, no one else in the store.  Not seeing many people wear masks, though most places have a plexiglass shield at the register.

My hairdresser in a neighboring county is open, but only accepting clients within that county.

We’re still not open and when I go to the grocery store I am the only one without a mask. Our governor is a tyrant. We’re watching other states open up and everything is fine, but we aren’t, and we are a mostly rural state. I’m in the northeast, but I’m itching to move. My 3rd house moon has been itching to for a while, but now I’ve finally got my husband’s ear. If we can get out of here we will. I don’t trust this place long term.

But I expect everything – the whole country – to get locked down again in the late fall.

Only good thing is – summer’s almost here and no one’s going to pay any attention to the propaganda in our ears and eyes when the sun is shining.

I plan on taking a little time to go through my medicine cabinet soon, and restock what’s expired or not in there. If I wait until fall, everyone will panic-buy like they did a few months ago, and yet again I’ll be stranded without supplies.

Thankfully, P. Trump said there will be no lock down of the country for future outbreaks.  I don’t know where you live, Dolce, but I’m in NJ and our Governor Murphy said we won’t go back to normal until we have a vaccine.  That is not acceptable.

The bottom line is we’re going to have to adapt and learn to live with the threat of the virus.  We can’t stay in our houses forever.  We still have an 8pm curfew here and this is week 9.

The supermarkets are still hit and miss for getting things.  Lately, there isn’t any canned tuna fish and there is never much meat in the supermarket to choose from unless you happen to be there when they first put it out.  I’ve been using my butcher for meat and so far, he has been really good.

I went to an outdoor garden nursery today and bought some herbs and peppers.  Everyone wore masks.  They had some vegetables and told me that if I need them and don’t buy them today they will be gone after tomorrow.  People are growing their own food now.  I was happy to get what I could before the holiday weekend rush.
