GINTA – Second waves, returning to school and social responsibility

(Image: CFJC Today)

SINCE I WROTE the column about masks not being a big deal, hence we should all wear one when in public to protect ourselves and others too, much has happened.

BC Transit, BC Ferries and Translink have now made masks mandatory for all customers, except young children and people who are exempt for medical reasons.

Also, masks are mandatory when shopping in any of the Loblaw-owned stores. More yet might follow given that numbers are climbing up and new exposure sites are popping up around the province and on multiple B.C. flights.

With schools starting, things are about to get even more complicated. The school district issued guidelines that are not enough to put one’s mind at ease.

I am not convinced that our kids will be safe from this stubborn virus, but I hope to be proven wrong.
