2021 Annual Conference Aug 28 to Sep1

How soon will things go back to normal with the COVID-19 …

As I watched TV and review things on the internet I looked for the same things everyone else is looking for.  “How soon will things go back to normal”

In an interview Dr Anthony Fuci was asked – The question was asked that many people have postponed weddings, family events, and travel from last year to March or April of this year.  Do they need to postpone it again?

Dr. Fauci:  You know, they should have done it toll June, July.  And the reason is– 

I am sorry we don’t know — — I have been saying, and I think it’s going to work out that way, that if we do it efficiently, and it depends on how efficient we are, if we get the priority people vaccinated, the ones that the ACIP is recommending, if we get them vaccinated between now, and let’s say, March, beginning of April, and we could start in April doing what I call open season on vaccinations, namely anybody in the general population who wants to get vaccinated will get vaccinated. If that’s the case, when we go through April, May, June, July, by the time we get into the middle or end of the summer, I believe we will have– if we do it correctly, we can have 70% to 85% of the population vaccinated.

When that occurs, there will be an umbrella of protection over the entire country that the level of virus will be so low that you will essentially have been able to establish herd immunity. So I’m looking forward to as we finish the second quarter and go into the third quarter of 2021.

The United States moved one step closer to getting back to normal this week with the first Covid vaccinations of health care workers around the country. While the majority of Americans won’t get their shots until spring, the vaccine rollout is a hopeful sign of better days ahead.

As you can see many people have a opinion on this
but there seams to be in agreement that some kind of normal
will be in July.   

So I went ahead and move the conference to
August 28 to September 1. 2021 this year.

I know we all need to get away.  

Please remember you have any questions about coops
and need help MAHC is here to help.

And many people have commented on it. 

When will restrictions start to ease up?
“I think widespread availability of vaccines will result in the further relaxation of most precautions by mid- to late summer 2021.” — Michael Webster-Clark, postdoctoral researcher, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Months to go before ‘new normal’
With the vaccine rollout picking up pace, many Americans will be hoping life can return to some form of normality over the next few months – but experts say there’s still a long path ahead. “It will be many more months before we see not necessarily a return to normalcy, but the emergence of a new normal,” according to Dr Keri Althoff, a professor of epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University.

How will we know it’s safe to do normal things?
“First of all, it’s going to be expressed by the number of new cases that you see — the test positivity number. You’ve got to go as low as you can get. The best number is zero. It’s never going to be zero, but anywhere close to that is great.” — Dr. Fauci

When will you eat in a restaurant?
“If more than half the population is vaccinated, I would feel a little less stressed and anxious when heading out to do errands I normally do. I might actually feel comfortable to eat in a restaurant or see friends again one day if this is possible.”— Vijaya L. Seegulam, research project manager, Boston University

When will restrictions start to ease up?
“I think widespread availability of vaccines will result in the further relaxation of most precautions by mid- to late summer 2021.” — Michael Webster-Clark, postdoctoral researcher, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

What did you learn from pandemic life?
“Staying home with my children has taught me that life with fewer errands to run and activities to partake in is kind of nice. I think in the future we will cut down on our family obligations.” — Jennifer Nuzzo, associate professor, Johns Hopkins

What’s one thing you’ll never take for granted again?
“I won’t take traveling to my extended family for granted.” — Alicia Allen, assistant professor, University of Arizona
