We all thought of these restrictions as a thing of the past, are now coming back due to the spiking in corona cases. Let’s hope the Mayors and governors in these states are more circumspect and less draconian in their implementations of restrictions . One thing that needs to occur in spite of the increased numbers of corona cases, is that our schools need to re-open. I hope that each state’s electorates remember all the injustices perpetrated by these elected officials and are voted out of office in November.
