We have only 170nm to go before reaching Charleston. With any luck we will arrive within the next 24 hours.
We’ve talked about the fact that our re-introduction into “the real world” may come as quite a shock, and that we’ve probably not appreciated our past two months in Barbuda enough. We’ve read all the news, but we suspect that until you actually have to deal with “stay at home orders”, wearing masks, and social distancing on a daily basis, you can’t really understand just how much things have changed.
So, we’ll reach out here and ask for some suggestions.
– What should we expect?
– Should we try to avoid meetings with friends and family?
– How safe do you feel going out for groceries and other supplies? – Are you wearing masks? When?
– What supplies are difficult to find?
BTW – I think we lean hard towards the “be extremely careful” side of the spectrum.
Perhaps many have learned to deal with COVID-19 and are “moving on”, but we think it’s crazy that many states are loosening restrictions before meeting any of the criteria that have been published by the federal government. It’s equally unbelievable that the guidelines developed by the CDC are not being published. And, I’m sorry if this is a touch political, but how bizarre is it that Trump is actively encouraging states to reopen now, before they meet any/most of the criteria that he personally announced.
Honestly, I wish I could have found a way to stay away!!
Please do let us know if you have any suggestions.
