“I wish I were bringing you good news for this new year, but, unfortunately, in terms of our local metrics, there’s not much good news to share,” Buncombe County Public Health Director Stacie Saunders said. She cited increasing case numbers and hospitalizations, the transmissibility of the Omicron variant and limited supplies of new therapeutics.
The Buncombe County Board of Commissioners has extended the county-wide face covering requirement for all indoor public spaces through Feb. 16, 2022. The indoor mask requirement extends to Asheville, Biltmore Forest, Black Mountain, Town of Montreat, Weaverville, and Woodfin.
In mid-February, we Scrabblers will consider meeting as a club “in person” again, although if the mask mandate is further extended, we will likely postpone meetings further.
Redefining “fully vaccinated” to include receiving a booster, as many organizations have already done, would help to ensure that when we do meet again, the risks are minimal to those attending, as well as others whom those attendees might later expose. More on that as we get closer to meeting as a club again.
A Youtube video about the relatively new opportunity to play Scrabble online is available with this link:
Whenever we do have the opportunity to get back together, it is going to take some motivation to build the momentum we need to have a vibrant club experience again. We can do it!
Z Sunday Scrabble Rapport will be updated again in mid-February!
