SPECIAL SECTION : Snowbirding during a pandemic
CSANews Issue 118 — Spring 2021 Edition
As we emerge from this dreaded COVID winter, it is important to remember all of our many blessings. Very few of us have had catastrophic results from this new pandemic and, other than government restrictions, have had happy lives. True, many were unable to live their normal snowbird lifestyles, but we adapted and are moving on.
Vaccines are now readily available in most provinces, but getting them requires a concentrated effort on your part. So, stick with it and your vaccination should be ready soon. The real question is “What now?” There is only one answer – enjoy our beautiful spring and the upcoming summer. Watch the provincial and government announcements carefully and move to bring your life back to normal as soon as possible.
We should still wear a mask in crowds and socially distancing from strangers is still a wise decision. There is a large component of our society that is refusing the various COVID vaccinations, including many front-line workers, and that is their right. I don’t personally agree with them, so I will choose to be safe when I can. It just makes sense.
The urge to travel is almost overwhelming. We are retired people and this is what we all dreamed of during our working lives. Research the rules about COVID and your possible destinations and go as soon as you can. Relieve that itch. Look forward, not back.
Happy Summer and have a Happy Life.
