As I don't expect to be visiting hospitals or nursing homes, I'm putting my mask away.
I can't put the mask away yet. That's because I do all of the grocery shopping for my household and the grocery stores in my area still require everyone to wear a mask. That was true at least through today but might change soon now that the latest CDC guidance has been published.
During the last couple of months, the number of new covid cases per week where I live has been falling like a rock. There are now fewer new cases than during the lowest level of the plateau and the rate of new cases is still falling every week. I'm quite optimistic about that data continuing to improve as I don't see anything on the horizon that is likely to reverse the trend.
