With permission from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, Nevada’s cities and towns can now avoid illegally crowded restaurants by moving some of their lunch and dinner tables outdoors onto sidewalks including downtown Carson City…with six foot spacing between tables of course. The outside seating must be taken back inside the restaurants past a certain time. Signage will be more liberally allowed.
Supervisors also learned that getting our kids back in school will be a chore. Here in Carson City there will be two major groups of students – one group attending two days a week and a second group doing the same. No school on Mondays. After-school arrangements are being explored including using the “Mac” gym facility in Carson City next to I-580. There are other facilities being considered.
The final version of all this is expected to be adopted by the school board on July 27th. We’ll see how it works out.
One bright light in all this is renown immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and his medical associates from the National Institutes of Health. They may have already hit the ball out of the park on developing an anti-Covid-19 vaccine. The group has been working morning, noon and night for months to develop a vaccine that will help give us all our lives back. So far, tests on their vaccine-in-training performed very well when it was injected into over 40 volunteers who already had dead Covid-19 virus circulating in their bodies. Dr. Fauci said the anti-bodies in the new vaccine ferociously attacked the dead viruses which thoroughly impressed Dr. Fauci and his associates. The big test involving 30,000 human testees is expected to take place within two to three months. If that test proves as effective as the first one, we’ll see the world re-open widely again. There are also other “vaccines-in-training” around the world. Hopefully we’ll get our lives and our world back by next Summer, in not late Spring.
