For several weeks, we’ve been closely watching the COVID-19 virus spread across the globe. We were supposed to leave today around 5 p.m. for Melbourne, Australia.
After the World Health Organization elevated the COVID-19 to a pandemic, we made the hard decision to postpone our trip last Thursday. By Sunday morning, when I read that Australia implemented a policy for people to self-quarantine for 14-days upon arrival in Australia, I knew we made a good decision to postpone our trip.
We’re both heeding the state of Minnesota’s social distancing recommendations and are now working at home.
With so many unknowns about what the future holds, my hope is each of us can de-stress in our own way. Me, I’ll be getting outside to enjoy spring even if it’s in my backyard. There’s a lot to enjoy like this wood duck.
Be well and be safe everyone.
