How is the reopening going in your land?
My husband's family keeps pressuring us to go down to visit in SC. His mother is 90 years old and they just took her out of the nursing home and brought her home. She wasn't doing well there but is doing much better now at home.
We don't want to travel there right now. They don't wear masks and aren't concerned about the virus. They really don't understand why we don't want to go and I think its unfair to not consider how we feel about the virus. No one really knows if they're carrying it or not and really, even if we know most people recover if they get it, its not enough for me to chance it.
I told my husband he can go if he wants, but I'm not going with him. He said he doesn't want to go either.
Our school is still operating with a hybrid attendance plan with half the kids in one day and the other half in the next day. We have had a few people contracting the virus and more are expected.
We were going to discuss going back 100% at the last board of ed. meeting but they changed their mind with the new cases. Our closest neighboring town has been designated "red" for virus spread and we will be next, probably. That means we will most likely be going full distance learning by early winter.

Looks like they're getting ready to lock us all down again here in the UK, essential shopping only, but schools open. Boris is due to give us details at 4PM. The papers are saying this is expected to last until 1st December. My guess is, they'll keep us under lock and key until sometime just before Christmas, let us out briefly, then slam the door shut again until April. We've been pretty lucky in my area. Virus cases are very low and we've had restrictions which I hate but fewer than other parts of the country.
I was reading some Tory insider blog back in July, I think, which revealed that a lockdown was planned for Autumn-end of March, partly due to an expect virus second wave, but perhaps more importantly due to anticipated civil unrest caused by port and other trade blockades by France and the EU as a result of Brexit. This seemed to tally with a tarot spread I did back in February for this period, asking what the British people would be experiencing during this time. The cards showed that from Autumn to late Spring, the UK would be subject to tremendous blockages, stemming from multiple sources. It clearly showed everything coming to a standstill - all travel, commerce and interaction stopped dead. Betrayal, conflict stopping short of war, bad faith, cessation of trade. There was a strong element of water - which I took to be a naval blockade (probably the French) and also the virus. Every single card - save the last - indicated a 'stuck fast' sort of energy. The last card, thankfully, was the Chariot - freedom.
First hint of a lockdown-like restrictions in my country...though we don't do something as barbaric as fines or jailing people who don't follow them. Everyone willingly complies. Cases are back to spring levels after dwindling almost to nothing during the summer.
I am hoping to go back to my home country for Christmas. So, please pray that air routes remain open. I have not seen my family since March and have been living alone in great grief for many months. I NEED to hug my mother.
I was very sick last month and thought I had Corona. The antibody test was disappointing. None... I can't wait for the vaccine. It seems my country's offical vaccine-hope pharma company says that they have finished stage 3 trials with 10000 people and could be ready with millions of kits by March.
England will go into lockdown on Thursday for at least a month.
Numbers don't look good. I'm sure it's more than a 4-week lockdown in the end.
I'm not surprised. What a difficult time for all countries in the world.
