I feel lucky being in a country town during this time. As a community we have done so well to slow the curve and it’s been 45 days since we have had any active cases here.
Just a reminder of where we are at now…
🏠 Have gatherings in your home up to 5 people (allowed from different households)
👫 Have an outdoor gathering of up to 10 people
📚 Visit your local library
⛰ Go hiking and other recreational activities in national parks and state parks
👜 Go shopping for non-essential items
🚗 Travel within 150kms of your region for day trips
Another reason I feel grateful for being here, is the people and friendships we have made. The helping each other out, checking in to make sure people are okay, supporting each other and local businesses has been fantastic. I know I am so thankful for the support we have had.
These guys have been great friends and supporters and are our next story.
