The Covid-19 virus was not kind to anyone. During its reign of terror we lost many precious Orange residents. We yearned for the days when we could hug our parents, friends, children and grandchildren among others.

We also lost so many opportunities to gather with family, friends and neighbors, including the 2020 annual Orange Country Fair.

The good news is that Connecticut has taken the virus seriously and many embraced the opportunity to get vaccinated. Unlike the states that ignored the importance of trying to keep themselves and others safe from getting infected and keeping the nightmare going, the Nutmeg State has succeeded in keeping the infection rate under 2% for a long time.

Although masks are no longer required in outdoor settings, some, who are afraid of contracting the extremely contagious Delta Variant, choose to continue wearing one. It’s a choice, and as long as everyone is respectful of one another, either decision is acceptable.

YES There Is A Fair
