    I'm purposely naive
    Still, I will follow distanced rue, and all posted official local and statewide health directives!

    Also, I have and will continually get a PCR screening test; in other words, I have a medical location-dependent PCR history with me... I truly don't want to be a carrier and get a village infected; that is irresponsible and should be punished -period!

    Suppose it will be a lonely excursion. Before, I was looking forward to the interaction with locals; now, I might be seen as the black plaque.
