    I'm waiting for the US to lockdown. Maybe we'll all learn a lesson this time. Take it seriously, wear a mask. Wash your hands. wear gloves. Stay home.

    Whether we like it or not, lockdowns are needed because they caution us, just like masks and distancing do. It does not matter whether we like or dislike lockdowns; we are ask to abide by its rules. Take it one day at a time, one hour at a time. Adjust.

    If the best idea your "health officials" can come up with is more lockdowns it's time to fire them for incompetency and find new health officials.

    I really hope Albertans are paying attention. Even if you dont believe in Covid you know if our numbers keep going up we will be locked down again too. If you are staying home when you can then you will be able to go out when you want to.
