Piercing Ken Thoughts: Considering my background working in COVID Safety over these last few months I can’t say that this news surprises me all that much. What surprises me are the amounts of people lauding that “COVID IS OVER” (yeah I heard that a few times). So while hospitalizations might be less along with the more dire circumstances, the virus is still among us and compromising the normal way of doing life, business and fun. I implore any readers who aren’t vaccinated yet to consider doing so and remind you to wear a mask in any super crowded situation you might find yourself in since you don’t know who’s next to you and you don’t always know how being infected will affect you. That’s all I have on this, please stay safe out there.
