Back in April of 2020 when we were deep into the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic former Premier Stephen MacNeil of Nova Scotia famously told the residents of Nova Scotia to “Stay the Blazes home” so we could help flatten the curve and lower our case counts of this virus. Now just over a year later with our daily case numbers rising out of control new Premier Iain Rankin is basically telling us to “ Stay the Blazes home” again.
Some people think that this is an affront to their personal freedom to do whatever they want whenever they want. However this could not be farther from the truth. During a pandemic one person’s selfish action could negatively effect many people. You could be asymptomatic and not realize that you are infected and spread the virus to everyone you meet.
This is 2021 not 1918, most ( yes not everyone) can now work remotely from home. I am thankful that both myself and my wife are able to do that. Groceries can be delivered if needed, you can stream almost any show or movie under the sun and if you are missing the gym you can go for a run or do an online pilates class.
The point is that yes it is inconvenient but staying home will not kill you as I don’t think anyone has really died of boredom, I am sure my teenagers would disagree. However if you must go out to get gas, groceries or to visit the pharmacy make sure that you wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart from other people and don’t forget to wash your hands.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
