Yes I know it's April today. I don't have a real reason for missing my March blog entry. Things aren't good here in my region of Southern Ontario. The variant versions of Covid-19 have taken over from the original and are even more horrifying. These variants, or VoC for short (Variants of Concern) have started to attack younger people and apparently are 1.5 times more likely to end in death. Our hospital ICU admissions are on the rise and despite government restrictions such as lockdowns they continue to spread at an alarming rate, especially in my particular region. On the plus side I am being told that I may be able to receive a vaccine fairly soon, at least a first dose,...the downside being that now experts are saying that our vaccination programme is too weak to keep up with the might of this virus.
So here we are, I do not feel particularly hopeful about any physical art events this year, Online events do not work for me. I've lost the urge to paint.
My Explorers Against Extinction painting has ground to a halt after three attempts. I'm not sure I will even participate at all.
At work things are very busy being that we offer delivery. We are allowed to have a limited number of customers and have things blocked off to prevent people from being able to access the entire area; that said we are still having to tell some people not to pass the barriers. Hand sanitizer is always in my apron pocket and the door handle and counter are sprayed and wiped constantly after each entry.
Easter wil be another non-event, was as my birthday and tomorrow that of my husband's. My daughter and her family will visit outside, which is better than nothing.
I never would have thought I'd be still writing abut Covid-19 a year later.
Stay safe everyone and please follow all your local public health guidelines.
