Don’t be too hard on those of us who aren’t there yet. I was much happier when we were told (early on) to expect to work from home for the rest of 2020. Though logically I can see it coming, right now I need the glimmer of hope that 2021 will be better. I’m sure many of us will be realizing how long the road is going to be in the coming months.It is worrying how many people are shocked when I say that we will still be doing this through at least next summer. And we are talking about educated professionals. They are taken aback when I mention that a lot of silicon valley has already told its workforce to just plan on working from home until summer of 2021. I don't know if it is just wishful or what.
We’ve been lucky so far but the rates in Canada are creeping up now too & new restrictions are being considered or imposed. I’m happy to comply when I look at the death rates for jurisdictions that aren’t making the hard decisions. Though our restrictions are not as onerous as what was happening in March/April when testing was scarce and so much was unknown.
The number of deaths in central Florida yesterday exceeded all of Canada (7) & that makes me incredibly sad. If feeling silly in my mask, tipping generously while doing take out, shopping local & keeping my in person social circle small and/or outdoors is what it takes to get us back on track, so be it. Feeling like things are going backwards is not easy though. Hang tough all.
