Just as things were starting to look like they would be close to normal again, the Coronavirus hits again.

North Carolina is getting ready to find out if we will transition into the next phase of reopening on Friday. but it looks as though cases in a bunch of American states are increasing at a speedy rate, making me not too hopeful. More than 20 states have reported coronavirus spikes, and experts are warning of the “fall surge” they talked so much about earlier this year.

Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington state, Wisconsin, and Wyoming have all seen increases in the virus.

Another thing to worry about; now with temperatures going down, many people will be spending more time inside instead of on patios. Experts are expecting a “huge surge” at the end of the year. I know we’re all tired of this and want things to go back to normal. But it’s important to remember to be diligent and remember that unfortunately, the coronavirus is far from gone yet.
