    The importance of small business , businesses that have 10 or less employees , their survival , has been absent in any economic discussion on recovery from this virus .

    That is a problem . Economically , and the Well Being of any community .

    The more the community employs the healthier the community is . Both mentally and economically .

    My dog says there will be a huge release of productive energy once we get past corona. She predicts an economic explosion in the near future.

    In respect to being a willing prisoner in my home, lack of human contact, being denied access to something as simple as a walk on the beach? I'm willing to gamble that I might survive exposure.

    You have the right to take that gamble. You don't have the right to force other at-risk people to take that gamble. The person you kill will not be you.

    Are we going to live like hermits until they make a vaccine, possibly another year or more?

    Those who live behind a mask with a bottle of disinfectant in one hand and a wipe in the other. It's not a put down, just the reality of where we are right now.

    You have the option to continue living under a cloud of fear, taking all the precautions necessary to protect yourself.
