WHERE ARE WE NOW? Omicron has arrived, just when we thought we were getting on top of the other variations! At this point we are all very tired of it but the virus doesn’t care, it rolls on and on and on. We have to try to keep ourselves and those around us safe by following all the safety measures, like hand washing, sanitizing and wearing masks. Christmas is just around the corner and we all want to be able to celebrate with our families, in fact we need it more than ever right now. It has been a horrible time and some people have suffered more than others, losing loved ones long before their time in some cases. Please do your best to follow the rules, think long and hard about the vaccine, talk to your GP if you feel unsure. Listen to the science. STAY SAFE.
