It is like opening the windows after a long cold winter and letting in the fresh air. Today is Day 1 of Phase 2 of the opening of Connecticut and it feels like we can take a deep breath and start to get back to doing some of the things we have been missing for the past 3 months.
Today gyms, nail salons, bowling alleys, movie theaters, tattoo parlors, hotels, libraries and outdoor amusement parks are back in business.
And you can now eat indoors at your favorite restaurant, but not at the bar, which are our seats of choice when we dine out. We really liked the social aspect of that experience.
So, take a deep breath, but with caution and care as you have been doing lately. If you have to ask, wear a mask. Continue to wash your hands and not touch your face. I recently heard a doctor say that that is THE absolute best advice to staying healthy. Socially distance, be kind, eat your vegetables, don’t drink and drive, stay in school, don’t leave anyone in a hot car, including your pets, and maybe invest in the company that makes Plexiglas. You are going to be seeing a lot of that everywhere. Stay safe and stay sane.
