  1. I always read your updates. It will be interesting to watch this develop. The islands that are now getting hit will undoubtedly be overwhelmed by the cases possibly.

  2. Thank you for doing this.

    While I understand if you want to stop, I for one would much appreciate it if you choose to continue the updates.

  3. This is probably the closest I get to “The News”, so I would appreciate you continuing the updates. Too bad about Francis the Red testing negative, heard he only has one lung and figured him for a goner.

  4. Shawn,while there is a corona burnout due to all the news updates at least for me a reminder to keep looking for and filling holes in me personal plans while also keeping me eyes out to update others in posts on conditions like me recent shopping adventures and what was/was not available.

    Sure,we also make jokes corona related but feel we lose our ability to laugh we are done for,so,a occasional update would be nice but your play pen/your call.
