Well, it’s been quite a year, hasn’t it? After a long wait, my age/category group finally made it to vaccine eligibility and I am now fully vaxxed! Knowing what we know about vaccine efficacy, being vaccinated still isn’t a 100% guarantee you won’t get the virus, get fairly sick from it, or spread it. Small farmers can hardly afford down time due to illness. And there are vulnerable people in my life whom I’d like to protect from getting the virus from me. Thus, I’m still being conservative about masking around people with unknown status and in public places. Fully vaccinated adults are welcome to visit the farm with no masks. Unvaccinated adults or kids, I’d appreciate us all wearing masks if we are going to be in the barn together, or working to load sheep etc. Any visitors who are immune compromised and wish to ask me to wear a mask during their visit, I will gladly do so to protect their health!
