    Sadly, I think we'll all be seeing closures of favorite businesses and hangouts during the next few months. Nothing of note in my area - yet.

    True! It’s such a mix of emotions these past few days; hope and happiness about the vaccine reports, then sadness for friends who are struggling. Even feel guilty that we have been fortunate. Since we are retired, our monthly checks come in on time so no financial issues. We have even saved money as we have not been traveling. Then, of course, the upcoming holidays and being unable to hang out with family. Just have to take it day by day

    A bar/restaurant near the school I taught at closed a few months ago. It had good, inexpensive bar food, however, they did not have their menu online. We wanted to order from them several times, but had no access to a menu.

    However; a popular diner in the next city over opened a new restaurant/diner earlier this month a few minutes from us. We did a take out order last weekend and the food was hot and very good. I hope they can stay in business. It would be great to have more dining options on this side of town.

    overflowing with stupidity

    6 residents here +

    4 of those positive, thought they had head colds, got tested at the health dept on Friday afternoon and before they found out the results...........
    went to a dance at the Elks lodge Fri
    went to a dance at our clubhouse Sat
    played couples golf here Sun

    by then all 4 had some symptoms, fever headache and other
    they got their results on Monday morning while they were golfing again

    these 4 contaminated or exposed a ton of people

    I am disgusted

    Paul and I were not exposed to them as we do not travel in the same circles

    Just this morning, I went to dunkin and there in the car behind me was one of the positives.
    He was out getting coffee too.

    I got home and found this email blast from our community manager

    People are just selfish and stupid.

    I get so disgusted with people!!!!! How is it possible that they don’t understand; don’t care or can be so ignorant!! The closures, unfortunately, are necessary.

    The selfish and ignorant are why the virus is out of control. Your board did what was necessary to protect everyone even though it stinks for those doing the right thing. I am glad you and Paul were not exposed, and hopefully no one else will get sick.

    Glad you guys are okay
    Went to an interview the other day; an employee traveled on a plane
    Didn't quarantined herself nor answer yes on the screening form
    Now she had infected several of those resident as well as employees.
    Hear co-workers saying how they are still going to 'celebrate" Thanksgiving with large family.... not going to let
    covid or anything else spoil their holiday.
