It's Winter in Canada and most of us like to escape to a warmer climate. Usually, it's quite easy to escape with direct flights to the Caribbean from most major cities in Canada. I had started to draft this blog entry a while ago, and today, it's April 3rd.of 2020, and so much has changed in our entire world. It is hard to even begin to document all of this.
Because of the spread of a Virus, COVID-19, most countries have closed their borders, planes have stopped flying, people have been told to GO HOME and STAY HOME! In Canada, almost everyone ( except those working in essential services) is at Home, and we are allowed to go only to the grocery store and /or other essential services. Social distancing is the only chance we have of trying to slow down the spread of this horrible virus. Cruise ships have become breeding grounds for the virus, and at this point, it is hoped that all cruise ships will be grounded.
This virus can be killed by hand-washing with soap, so we are doing a lot of hand-washing, and wiping down of grocery carts, doorknobs, etc. There are lineups at every grocery ( outside), the number of people inside the grocery is limited to a certain number, and you must maintain 6 feet. between you and the next person. Toilet paper is in short supply. so are masks and protective equipment .
We recommend washing with our Lavender soap from Neob Niagara. This is an all-natural soap, which can also be used as a Body Wash, Shampoo and Bubble Bath. We also have to avoid touching our face, nose and eyes. Covid-19 attacks your lungs and respiratory system.
All of us dream of Time off...it's like a fantasy, when I have time off, I will do this, or that. Now that we all have time off, and we are waiting for this to be over, it is very difficult. We are almost going a bit nuts, when will our lives be normal again? The Government of Canada has announced financial help for Canadians during the Covid-19 crisis.
