October beginnings. School is in and the fear of COVID-19 has closed some classes. Numbers of confirmed cases have reached heights higher than ever recorded. Many of us continue to live in our small bubbles of 10 or less and rumours of restrictions are being heard.

Our neighbours to the south continue to lessen restrictions as Florida and several other states no longer require masks in public.


USA remains #1 for number of cases with 1/5 deaths due to Coronna Virus being in the USA. More importantly the number of cases per million is almost 5x that of the number per million worldwide.
