Summer/fall COVID-19 went a lot smoother than I thought it would have. Having to remember the protocols put in place to help protect my people is now the new normal. Not walking up to my summer friends (lodge owners/guides/clients) and giving them a welcoming warm hug is still something I am not used to doing. Lately it has been a lot of air hugs and air high fives.
Chatting and visiting from 6 feet is the new normal and common practice and enough hand washing/sanitizing daily. Dreaming of how it used to be, the freedom of worry free hugs, and a good firm handshake seems like a distant memory.
School has reopened successfully and many thanks to the LPSD school staff and parents to help make this possible. With out you all our children wouldn’t be attending school today. Remember to wash your hands, stay safe, and stay kind.
Have a safe and successful hunting season.
