I hope this Friday finds you all safe and well. Here’s the latest from Alabama. As of Thursday, June 18th, there are 27,796 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 801 people have sadly passed away. From last week that’s an increase of 5,322 people who have tested positive, and 50 more deaths. Three AL counties: Montgomery, Jefferson, and Tuscaloosa are seeing the largest increase in weekly cases, and ICUs in Montgomery and Tuscaloosa are almost at full capacity. AL is one of 23 states reporting sharp increases, and while these numbers are awful, we’re not quite as bad as states like Florida. It does beg the question as to why Mr. Trump thinks COVID-19 is “dying out.”
Our pool reopened Monday, and we’ve been happily using it every morning. Our apartment’s management is strictly following CDC guidelines so we’ve felt pretty safe. It’s great timing because my fibromyalgia and migraines have been acting up and swimming really helps me.
For this week’s positivity I’m sharing this wonderful video, Time from musicians Hans Zimmer and Alan Walker. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Please let me know how all of you are doing!
