Day 179 of Safer-at-Home here in Panama City Beach, Florida. Today’s statistics for COVID-19 from Florida’s Community Coronavirus Dashboard for Bay County are 5,706 cases and 95 deaths, and for Florida are 709,004 cases and 12,658 death. There were three more deaths in my community, and there are 24 people in local hospitals. Bay District Schools reported 4 new cases, which brings the total to 24. To date there are 304 students/staff in quarantine involving 14 schools.
Today is 9/11, and it seems so long ago, yet seems just like yesterday. While it was a sad time, I do remember how we came together as a nation in our mourning. Something we seemed not to have done as a nation for COVID-19.
Today was a computer day, as I am determined to have my handouts for my upcoming classes at Education Encore ready to turn in on Monday. I think I am almost done. My brain started to get a little foggy, so I stopped a little while ago and will resume probably on Sunday.
I received my Butcher Box shipment today, which is always a treat. My freezer is full and thus I am rich. I think of how privileged I am, even though I am trying to live on a fixed income. Hunger exists in our country and around the world, and the pandemic has only made things worse for so many. So I am counting my blessings and knocking on wood.
And speaking of the pandemic. After being out in public, I seem to unconsciously and sometimes consciously count the days from my last possible exposure to the virus. I guess this is part of the new normal.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and Wear a Mask.
