Schools are still open, but probably not for long. Sports, and all other extra-curricular activities are cancelled. My daughter's long-awaited school-related trip to Ottawa, cancelled. My son's football practices for Football New Brunswick, cancelled until at least the end of March.

This is starting to feel a bit surreal.
I think cancelling the trip was a wise idea anyway...

With the prime minister's wife affected, would expect the government to really crack down to contain it.

Probl m is that it cannot be contained. Spread by touch and many people being affected without any symptoms it is going to run rife for a long long time.

I think it will go up - up - up and then level and then go down. Cancelling all of these activities is definitely keeping the numbers down which is good since it has such a dangerous effect on the older and immune compromised but it is still going to have to run it's course...

The NRCHA postponed its Stallion Stakes. A wise choice since it was in the germ hot bed of the world (Vegas). Don't know when they will find to hold, the show year is already so packed.

I have a random cold, but I'm a little hesitant to go out just b/c of how on alert people are. There has been one presumptive case in Calgary. I hope everyone is feeling OK.
