Derek’s outBOX – March 22, 2021

MORE IN: General

 

Some people have asked me about the masks. I was really hoping that with the warm weather arriving we could ditch the masks.  However, the state and the CDC are still recommending mandatory masks.   As soon as the Governor lifts that for Maine, as they have done in dozens of other states with much larger COVID rates, we will stop our mask mandate.  You can take your mask off if you have received both vaccine shots and 14 days has passed since the second one.  Also, according to both the CDC and the WHO, it is extremely rare to get sick from COVID twice.  So, if you have had COVID, you do not have to wear a mask.  I think that only applies to one person, but it could be more later.   

Several people also asked about my surgery. I had some surgery on my vertebrae.  The surgery was a success, and the recovery is coming along.   I go back to the doctor April 1 and I am hoping he gives me the go ahead to do whatever I want.  Ironically, April 1 is the first day Skydive New England opens, so the timing is perfect.  I will coordinate a group skydive sometime in May so let me know if you want to come and have the most incredible experience of your life.   

March 23 is National Chip & Dip Day. We will be offering chips and dips in all the break rooms.  If you want to bring in your favorite dip or your favorite recipe that would be fun.
