Travel is risker than staying at home. I can assure you that I use all precautions to reduce my exposure and therefore reduce my risk of exposing you. It appears that because many people in my age group have heard the warnings and the number of cases for my age is declining. Valerie and I do not go out to crowded bars, we wear masks when we must go out where we may be exposed. Although the number of cases is rising for those who do not choose to reduce their exposure, our area of Florida is not in the news because there’s not a lot to report there. It’s about as safe in Fernandina as it is here. Just to add another layer of protection, for two weeks I will delegate distribution of communion to deacons and our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion.
