This is useful, because Covid cases are now over 1000 a day, first time ever, and even if hospitals stay open for elective surgery, I'm not sure I want to chance three days there and two weeks in a facility. Like, I'm sure the pandemic has nursing staff being a leetle more careful than usual, and doubtless the rehab places will be half empty as well, but. I never underestimate humans' capacity for doublethink, especially among people who work long shifts, and I saw how doctors in hospitals handled SARS back in '03 ie lightheartedly ignoring thir own rules, and I am not reassured.
Meanwhile the world is October brocade- old gold, rust, deep burgundy, yellow-green- under grey clouds with the smell of woodsmoke on the wind. Best time of year ever.
