My COVID strategy: treat it as a storm

We are at 18.55 percent positive tests. And yes, what we have here is mostly delta as opposed to the less damaging omicron.

Hospitalizations: I’ve listed August 18, December 22 and December 29. Note the change in 1 week, and in that week, cases exploded ..mostly delta.

But, well, most simply don’t care, at least here. So..I’ve got some KN-95 masks, my 2 shots and booster, and I’ll hunker down; mostly work activities only until cases subside to at least October levels..maybe early November will be ok.

I sold our NFL tickets and will probably catch the basketball games on ESPN+ (renewed my subscription); pity Bradley won’t make a vaccine mandate to go games the way that Illinois did. But Illinois is a major program; not as dependent on money from FREEDUM MAGA morons.

Now when cases go down, as they will eventually, I’ll see you at the arena. I am confident I’ll get baseball again.

But for now, I am in “storm mode” and will leave shelter when the storm passes ..and maybe the next variant will be more mild than omicron, which is a step down from delta.

Workout notes: yes, yoga class: 3 masked, vaccinated and boosted individuals in a large room, followed by 1:02:30 on the bike. I’ve made moved to up the intensity to give myself a better workout. The butt feels better but I am not getting the calorie burn that I got with walking, so I need to cut back on eating a bit.
