This week, we celebrate a rather inauspicious anniversary. Although the first known case of COVID-19 was identified in America on January 21 in Washington State, it was a year ago on March 4, COVID-19 the virus became an official health issue.

Now it feels as if the collective "we" may be on the precipice of something really groundbreaking, courtesy of scientists and the vaccines during this first week of meteorological spring!

until next Monday,
