Look, I get it.
These past 14 months have been HARD.
To decreased case volume for months.
To our friends and family and community members getting sick.
To our coworkers getting sick.
I get it.
But this is not the time to let our guards down.
People are still dying at a rapid clip.
Cases have begun to rise again.
More and more I see people out without masks.
More and more I see people challenging mask rules.
More and more I see governors relaxing the rules for their states.
And more and more I see the death that follows.
Yes the case count is down.
But testing is also down.
Yes the vaccines are going into arms at a rapid pace.
Yes we are almost through.
Almost through is not through.
Get the vaccine when you can.
Still mask and practice distance after vaccination.
The life you save may be your own.
