Hospitals and clinics are now much better equipped and prepared with medication, antibody procedures and testing to help those infected with COVID-19.

The warmer weather will slow down new infections.

The severe restrictions - the four stages (guidelines) - need to be eased. Otherwise, there will be a lot more suicides and fatalities from frustration, depression, anger, road rage and shootings.

Certainly, the sparsely populated areas (including most of Adams County) can move ahead.

For schools, why not let, at least the seniors, go to schools and colleges for a few days for final exams - like soon, a week or so.

Social distancing with masks could be applied; use more than one classroom if needed. Remote electronic tests will not work. Let them earn real letter grades.

Graduations could be drive-through or curbside.

Drastic measures were indeed needed at the onset, but not now.

A fully tested effective vaccine is still, what, at least a year away. Some people test positive, then negative, hmm...

How many deaths were due to other underlying causes? Some think those having the flu shot last fall had their immune system weakened. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are pessimistic and overreacting.

Have faith and hope, not fear and panic.

People, through their work, make this great country, not the government.
