That meeting and news about easing restrictions has left me to conclude that we have given up on reopening safely.
The Senator was honest and said “we’re on our own for PPE”
While we have increased hospital capacity, we have not secured enough tests to test everyone. We are still working on securing enough PPE. And most importantly, infections continue to rise.
It seems we are opening up because people all over this country sacrificed to buy the government time and they squandered that time.
I do not want to dismiss the economic hardship these stay at home orders caused. But we have to realize, those sacrifices will be for nothing if we reopen and face the very same problem we tried to avoid.
And if you can avoid it, do not go back out there yet.
