1. I assume they will be continuing social distancing, masks, and some form of contact tracing

I followed the link and their numbers look good. Their curves look much better than ours here in the states

2. I was in downtown Vancouver today

because my youngest had an eval for ASD. I saw about half of the people wearing masks. Social distancing was hit or miss. Quarantine fatigue has set in big time here.

3. Not surprised about the "quarantine fatigue", and the numbers reported by the government sure look


I am in SF Bay Area, and mask usage is about the same, except in grocery stores where it is close to 90% where I am

All the best, stay safe
