You want to do what? Did you say open up the country on May 1, while we’re still counting the dead. Are we really ready to put people at risk of getting Covid-19?I just stocked up on all this toilet tissue, now what…
Seriously, what the heck is going on?
Do we have proper guidelines in place where we can feel comfortable going back to a sense of normalcy?
Even with some guidelines, it will be a false sense of security. I guess we all have to wait and see…
I believe this is going to take time. No one feels safe enough to go back to work, let alone social un-distancing during this outbreak.
We have been programmed to separate, wear masks, and fear for our lives. Now before this virus is a blip on the screen, we are talking about opening the country.There is so much we don’t know about this virus. We are still learning more everyday.
I get it… it’s a matter of economics.
It won’t be easy to resume our economies without having massive negative impacts across the globe.
What if things progress where there are more fatalities because we went back too early?
Keep in mind, there are no vaccines to date. And no one really knows when this will be a reality.
This Pandemic is going to be here for the forseeable future. Unless we can get it under control, it will continue to be part of our world.
So are we really willing to put people at risk?
I am not comfortable going back into the workplace so soon. Therefore, before I put my family at risk, I may have to make a personal decision as to the best way to proceed.
My job consists of working around alot of people all the time. I have no problem in going back when things change for the better but not right now, I won’t feel safe.
We all have to make our own decision as to the best way to proceed. Financially, it’s very difficult for people to stay out of work indefinitely.
We all have responsibilities which weighs very heavily on our minds if it’s not dealt with in a timely manner.
The pressure of not being able to pay your bills or put food on the table is enormous.
I understand! However, our safety as well as our family is extremely important.
What should you do?
Be cautious yet optimistic about the future.
Our leaders are trying to come up with a gameplan. We all have to decide if we are willing to take the chance to go back to our jobs, schools, or businesses.
The testing phase might help if everyone gets tested. At least you have a sense of comfort. But there are not enough test kits to go around at this time.
Unless our government can get this under control, we will be swimming in the unknown for a very long time.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so tired of being quarrantined..
This is a matter of life and death. Safety for all of our families is at a crossroad.
We have been told by the media to stay indoors. Is it in the air?
Now without having assurance that the spread is contained, they are considering opening the country by the end of the month
I guess I will wait to see what happens before I venture out….
What do you think?
2021 update…well the vaccines are out and life has not resumed to normal..I believe people think they will resume their lives prior to the Pandemic. Unfortunately that will never be the case.
A new normal is on the horizon and it may not be what we all anticipate. Things are changing tremendously as we speak. Businesses are changing their original format and technology will dominate becoming the next chapter for the whole world.
So where do we go from here post Pandemic? Will vaccines become the new normal?
One thought on “Are you kidding me?”
I agree, it is much too early to open. We do not even have testing in my county. You have to drive an hour away to get tested. Even in good times, we do not have transportation in our rural county for people to go to doctors an hour away. Many people are flauting social distancing guidelines, so the virus is running rampant without people being tested. It is much to early to even think about opening. The government should be thinking about universal income so we can stay home.
