Ice Cream Day

(Canada)

Sundae Sunday

(USA)


The second heat wave of the 2020 summer season is upon us.  Time to sit around and eat ice cream.

Select Ontario areas started Covid-19 Stage 3 restrictions on Friday.  Outdoor gatherings can now be up to 100 people and indoor gatherings can be up to 50 people.  Masks are mandatory indoors in most communities.  Beaches are open in Stage 3 areas, with distancing restrictions and limited numbers of people.

As the rest of the world starts to open up again, borders with the USA and Canada remain closed officially until August 17, 2020, with many predicting the borders won’t open until 2021.  Sorry cousins, neighbours and friends, stay home until you’re feeling better and we aren’t coming to visit.

USA remains #1 for cases and deaths from COVID-19, as many Americans are still in denial.  Yes the numbers are wrong.  THEY ARE UNDER REPORTED.  26.5% of confirmed cases Worldwide are in the USA.  23.6% of confirmed Worldwide deaths due to COVID-19 are in the USA.  The federal Government is no longer paying for testing in the USA, because “it only makes them look bad”.  Hospitals in many States are at or above capacity.
