Open Thread: Grand Opening….?

The pandemic still continues, with spotty results across the nation.  Some states and municipalities are reporting declining trends, others are reporting a pickup in cases.  The rules for opening stores and service providers, for wearing masks in public, and what’s open (or not) is literally all over the map….and the big unknown is how many people will be willing to venture into a store, restaurant or barbershop.

What’s the situation where you live?  Have you been able to shop inside a store, eat in a restaurant, or get a haircut?  And how did it make you feel?  Let us know in the comments!
