Contrary to statistics sited here, this can't be good. If the nursing home in Valatie is contributing, I can only guess they haven't learned much. The staff are free to mingle and I am guessing here once more, not wearing masks. Today, my oncologist made it clear, he doesn't want me to get covid. Get the new booster and stay away from the unmasked masses. Thanking the few who continue to be respectful and responsible!
