2021 kicks off with mixed emotions. Hope for the future as a coronavirus vaccine begins to roll out but concern for the present as new strains of the virus are discovered and spreading. Variants of the virus include the UK strain, the South African and now variants out of Ohio and California.

While we continue to remain vigilant and exercise caution by social distancing, wearing masks, and abiding by stay-at-home orders, we also see the creation of mass vaccination sites like Dodger Stadium and Disneyland in an effort to distribute the vaccine widely and efficiently as it becomes available to the general population.

This step provides a cautious optimism for a return to our pre-pandemic lifestyle, including in-person schooling at all levels and grades, restaurant dining, reopening of beauty salons and fitness centers, social gatherings and global tourism.

As we begin to see these possibilities, it also provides time to reflect upon what we have learned and how we can be prepared for a successful return to normal operations.
