You may have heard that here in New York City all restaurants and bars are shut for dining in and only open for take-out and delivery. This action was chosen because too many New Yorkers ignored social distancing and crowded bars and restaurants all weekend. All evidence shows that this distancing and staying away from crowds is the only way to halt the spread. Apparently we need to mandate it and not depend on voluntary compliance.
Make no mistake about it. Things will get worse. We are woefully behind the testing curve and as it catches up I fear we will see far worse numbers that are now hidden. Through it all we must keep our sense of humor. Luckily we have the internet, Twitter and blogs to connect us. Unfortunately we have the internet, Twitter and blogs to frighten and divide us. Should be an interesting few weeks that will easily become a difficult few months. Hang in there people and remember my favorite curse – “May you live in interesting times.”
