Fog and Nature

I was on a Zoom call yesterday with some friends, and one of them asked us all to consider whether we could shelter in place for another 6 months, if it came to that. Several of us are anticipating a surge of the virus in the fall. None of us has any confidence that the pandemic will be over in the short term. We talked about how so much has changed in the world. This will affect so many different parts of our lives. Travel will be affected, as will in-restaurant dining; farmers' market/retail store samples, church services, and the list goes on. We can't get the vaccine for the foreseeable future, and while the number of people being tested continues to be low, there is a part of me that questions whether testing is just a panacea, since there are a) false positives, b) false negatives, and c) the potential for a person to be infected shortly after being getting a negative test.

All of us on the Zoom call agreed that we could shelter in place for another 6 months, and keep to our general routines (limiting trips to stores, obsessive hand washing, regular disinfecting of surface areas like door knobs and cell phones). Most of us conceded that sheltering in place has given us time (and de facto permission, or do I mean direction?) to work on the many projects that we all have (and which we successfully avoided, pre-COVID).
