So ends week 7 of our COVID-19 lockdown. No inmate cases–still. I’m beginning to think we might dodge the bullet. Word on the Grape Vine is that we will return to a normal operation on or around June 9th, providing we don’t have any additional staff (or inmate) cases. I’m looking forward to it. Frankly, I think the guys have already returned to normal operations in their minds. I’m seeing less mask wearing and more socializing. It was inevitable. In week 3, Video Fridays In 60 Seconds #27, I predicted that it would only be a matter of time before convicts tired of their digital baby sitters. That time has come. The sunshine and warm weather only sped up the process.
I sure hope that June date holds. I’m not sure how many more weeks of these restrictions I can stomach, and I’m far more laid back than most of the guys around here. I can only imagine how they will act if we remain on restrictions.
