A CURIOUS THING HAPPENS every time a long weekend or school break comes about: the fleet of neighbourhood cars changes. Some of the usual vehicles are gone, and there are new ones, including a few from other provinces.
However, we ought to remind ourselves that things have yet to quiet down on the COVID-19 front. Some restrictions have been lifted and now we can expand our social bubble to 10 (and stick with those same bubble buddies.)
That’s great news for people who have been lonely during the pandemic because of their age, underlying health conditions or simply because they live alone.
Grandparents can see their grandkids, properly distanced, and people who stuck it out alone can get off zoom calls in favour of hanging out old style, safely distanced.
