Other COVID-related developments on all fronts:

  • So far 415,000 Americans have died of COVID-19.
  • As of today it looks like we might be just over the hump of the most recent surge in cases/deaths. Locally, hospitalizations have come down.
  • Jess and I haven’t had a date night since November.
  • People at my workplace have continued to get better about wearing masks.
  • I notice there has been hardly any news about treatments and therapeutics for the virus (as opposed to vaccines). Oklahoma is trying to return a $2m stockpile of hydroxychloroquine that turned out to be worthless for COVID treatment.
  • I’m still taking a voluntary saliva test every 1–2 weeks.
  • In MN schools are back open for the youngest students. My daughter is now back in first grade, and it’s been a rough adjustment, like a typical first week of school.
