The pandemic have different effects on us. I do think that majority of the people here experience some kind of mental health issue because of what's currently happening.

I have enjoyed the social spacing... But can do without the rest of the crap.

I will say I miss the early parts of the pandemic where people were only leaving the house for essential things, leaving the roads nice and empty for those of us that work out here to do our thing. Big Smile

Main stress right now is from the minority screaming that cruises need to stop. I need a vacation.

My hat's off to you CruiseQueenNH! Thanks for what you and your Mom do and know that those of us with loved ones in your care (or in similar care elsewhere) appreciate every precaution you take.

Soon it will be decided that we will all have to live with this virus in our daily lives with the necessary precautions and health advisories. How this will look, well that is another matter

If you mean it'll never go away...well that depends on the definitions of "never" and "go away"....they'll develop better vaccines, but I don't think it'll ever truly disappear. Shrink to an inconvenience, probably...Enough people haven't died yet...CQ mentioned the Spanish Flu of 1918...there was a TV show on it a few months back...despite the millions yes millions who died of it, its like it never happened..

When some government officials stop using it as a tool, it will start to become a nuisance or inconvenience. .

I agree completely, as a first responder it was amazing to not have to fight traffic in the morning or afternoons and $1.29/gal gas was wonderful. Everyone else working from/staying home, gave me all the social distance that I needed. I hated to see it end. Happy

Opus, we need to take the anti-cruisers out behind the barn!

You're welcome! My family is full of healthcare workers: me, my mom, my aunt, and three of my cousins all work in healthcare in various sectors. Myself and one cousin are in the nursing homes, mom is an EA at a hospital, my aunt is a Respiratory Therapist, and my remaining 2 cousins are also nurses. It's almost like a real-life version of "Blue Bloods" only in the healthcare field!Big Smile

The best thing to do right now is to take all the precautions you can if you want to help us. Cases are on the rise, and in some areas of the country, there aren't any beds left. Plus, we're all just so burnt out right now it's ridiculous. Nobody in my family has even taken a land vacation in almost 2 years. Needless to say, we all have vacations booked for next year (I have 3 and my first one is 5 months away!) for when numbers hopefully go down.

Well it was far worst under the last administration.

Be thankful, at least, that you can cruise, even with or without being vaccinated (depending on the cruise line).
