Husband had been so hopeful. The two libraries in town (Public and University) had been closed until two weeks ago. The Public Library opened “appointment only” and he ordered a classic, 1930’s book from inter-library loan about the history of the Great Plains. He has been reading it this week and is pretty happy about it. He was hoping this was a sign that things were returning to normal.
The COVID-19 numbers had not increased in our county for about three weeks, with a total of 63 as of last Sunday. That was until yesterday, when it went up two. It went up because there is this baseball league in town in which young adult players come from other parts of the country, live in sponsor homes, and play baseball all summer. Well, an 18 year old player from Oklahoma came up Sunday, was feeling ill on Monday, and he and one more person tested positive for the virus. Now, all the players and hosts and their families are being tested. The rest are all negative as of yesterday, but we will have a couple of weeks of continuous testing to see if it has spread. This is frustrating.
How do you think reopening should occur? How are you doing with precautions? What will be a sign to you that things are returning to normal?
