Folks, we need to continue to wear a mask to protect each other in public. If you have not yet been vaccinated, try to get the vaccine as soon as possible. As more and more people get the vaccine, we will reach herd immunity and put COVID-19 behind us and, God willing, get back to normal life full of hugs and human connections.
God bless you all and stay safe.
