Kinda Back to Normal (sorta)

I haven’t posted anything since Oregon “reopened”. Honestly I’ve been a bit busy actually resuming something resembling a pre-covid life.

COVID-19: The End(?)

Today the Governor announced that Oregon would be lifting it’s COVID-19 restrictions “no later than June 30th”. News reports as of this morning have us at 1.1% short of her original 70% goal.
