11. The store near me where I bought

most of my surgical masks put them on sale and is not ordering more. Same with their cloth masks. When double masking, I wear cloth over surgical. The cloth mask closes up the gaps on the sides of the surgical one. The surgical mask seals better at the nose bridge.

The store manager told me the pandemic is pretty much over now so they are selling off their masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer. I noticed more employees wth their masks around their necks or below their noses. I am seeing more custoners there and at a few other stores who are no longer distancing in line or in the aisles.

I have a feeling that the more infectious British version of the virus, which is the dominant version in the US now, will ramp up, like it is in Canada, because people are acting like the pandemic is done.

I check the stats from my county health department daily. It's a very rural county with two small cities and a few villages and "four corners." The total county population is well under 200,000. New infection numbers vary from 20 to 40 each day. Hospitalizations are starting to occur again after a lull in February. Two new deaths recently, first ones in a few months. Over a third of new cases are in two age groups, under 20, and 20 to 30.

It is not over.
