You start a blog. Why not? We have some unplanned time on our hands. Click here to see it.
Our extended family and friends are welcome to contribute their thoughts and experiences as well. We published an accounts of our first 16 weeks after COVID-19 descended on Canada.

By the way, in Canada you still can, and really should, get the 2019-20 influenza vaccine. It won’t insulate you from COVID-19, but would you really like to be fighting off the seasonal flu and be extra vulnerable at a time when you might also risk contracting the much more serious COVID-19 virus?
