We are seeing the result of re-opening, SC now being named a hot spot. Four restaurants within blocks of us have had to close temporarily due to employees testing positive. With my 98 year old mother living with us and our own vulnerabilities, we’re not going anywhere.

that sounds like a good plan

We are at the Wyndham smoky Mountain Lodge this week. I’m uncomfortable being away from my safe haven at home. They are at 50% capacity. We ventured out to take a walk but that was it today. We will go to the waterpark tomorrow and try to enjoy the waterpark. Brought plenty of food with us if we decide we aren’t too comfortable actually going to a restaurant. Other years staying here we utilized every minute of our day with the amenities. We won’t be doing that this year. Life has changed but still plan on enjoying our vacation.

Please do enjoy. Your unit should be a safe haven, no extra people. I hope the waterpark is fun and you find that you can relax and enjoy Not Quarantining!! You've earned the trip.

I'm jealous of the waterpark. That sounds like fun. I could go for a lazy river about now.. a good summer float...

Where I live, about 50% of people are concerned and wear masks. But we’ve had tons of company from various areas that have no restrictions and tons of company from various areas with the strictest restrictions (think northern Idaho vs San Francisco and Portland, OR). Out of all the out-of-state travel that friends and family have been making, and out of all of us collectively only knowing one person that has been afflicted with covid19, I can say that I feel very comfortable with travel. The problem is limited due to limited work. Also, I won’t bother going to a beach if said beach is closed. I’m not going to crowd around people; I go to beaches to swim in the ocean. Nor will I go to a national park if the exhibits are closed. So, I guess I’ll just impatiently continue to wait it out. ‍♀️

Our week at the Eastern Slope in NH was cancelled exactly two weeks prior to check-in, so I scrambled to come up with a Plan B. We’re headed to Woodstone at Massanutten, VA this Friday. Now if only the low pressure system that’s stalled, bringing rain to the NE, would move off! We don’t mind that many of the resort amenities aren’t open, but we’d like to enjoy the mountain scenery and not be cooped up in the condo.
