I’ve been in self-quarantine just as I hope most of us out there has, and it’s not the best feeling being stuck inside all day long. How has everyone out there been doing?
There are quite a few measures put into place here on the island. We’re following all of Whitmer’s orders, and from what I’ve seen on my limited time outdoors, we’re all social-distancing, too.
We’ve had cloudy, rainy weather for the last couple of days, which makes it much less appealing to go outside anyway. For the businesses that are still open, they’re doing their part to keep everyone safe and healthy, too. The post office has a new bulletin board dedicated to Covid-19 information, and Since we’re all PO Box holders, they also offer mail deliveries for anyone interested, which is a great service for our older residents.
The bank requires that you call ahead of time before going there, and they only allow one person in at a time.
And Doud’s Market offers home deliveries if you email or call them before Noon. Inside the store, they allow 6 people in the store at a time, provide gloves for shoppers, and have tape marked on the floor for when you’re waiting in line to pay.
This is normally the time of year when I start to see construction projects getting finished up, new employees arrive to the island, and businesses start to get cleaned up and organized. But none of that has really happened. Here’s hoping that we all keep up with our staying at home and our social distancing, so that life can go back to normal. ~ Heather
