Testing at the Airport

Sorry, but right now it is not safe to travel. That has even included not visiting my grandson who lives 30 miles from me. And also includes two trips to New York, and trips to Boston, Europe, St. Louis and Hawaii. Both my wife and I have received our first dose of Moderna vaccine and will be theoretically immune around March 5. We will return soon after that having canceled our February reservations as by that time we will be safe and though it has yet to be proven, extremely unlikely to bring it with us. Any travel, foreign or domestic, right now risks increasing the spread. The two new strains did not magically appear in the states. They were brought here, most likely by someone who was asymptomatic. People’s insistence against following the suggestions of experts is the main reason this continues to be out of control and is serving to prolong the worldwide agony.

Well, gee, thanks for that nail in our coffin. Guess I'll just close down the forum and go look for a new job. My response to CD69 was in jest, but now I'm not kidding. Happy for all you folks who don't have to live from international tourism in your communities.
