Let’s start off with the obvious: this is hard. None of us have ever dealt with anything like this before, and through all the changes and adaptations, you’ve stepped up. That’s huge. None of this—an open campus, low positivity rate—would be possible without your collective commitment to health and safety.
And while this is a new normal for now, it’s important to remember that this isn’t normal. We can’t get complacent just because we’ve gotten used to grabbing a face covering before heading out the door; we still need to take all the proper precautions to keep ourselves and those around us as safe as possible. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and we’re well on our way to reaching it, so let’s keep the momentum going. Join in on the effort, not just by wearing your face coverings, washing your hands, and keeping your distance, but by sharing the messages with those around you. Post them online, print them out as reminders for yourself and others, and show everyone exactly how and what it means to protect the herd.
(And remember, don't be that goat.)
