It is difficult to think that school will be starting soon. We are still in a real time of change. One of the frightening changes is that the virus seems to be making a return. Now they are talking about it being in school age children. That is especially interesting because earlier they had said that it didn’t affect younger children. There is so much that they do not know about the virus.

The best advice is to keep on washing your hands. Be careful when in crowds — in fact avoid crowds. If you are sick stay home — do not spread this “stuff” and remember if you are feeling badly that means that your system is weakened and you can “catch” illnesses more easily. Take care of yourself and your family and take care of others.
