Be Sure to Include a Face Covering

COVID-19 has taken its toll on just about everything in our daily lives. Tradeshows are no exception, and on the receiving end is ISC West, and this year’s March date has come and gone. Planning for 2021 ISC West has pushed this event back to July. In Las Vegas.

My first question, does anyone go to Las Vegas in July? Why would they?

Major players have pulled out of ISC West this year, but will bring their “A Game” to Orlando for GSX.

Then, I get this note from a good friend with this warning. BE CAREFUL!

Also, just a little heads up. My brother-in-law was in Las Vegas two weekends ago for a birthday celebration. He said the place was crawling with people like he has never seen before. Not a mask in sight. He came home and tested positive for COVID. Then, so did my sister (who did not go to Vegas). Both in mid-60s. (Oh great, I am in my mid-60s.)

They both had their Moderna shots in March. They report still really tired, no energy, sore throats and coughs. One more in his Las Vegas group tested positive as well (with shot) and he is now in the hospital.

Is this cause for concern or alarm? Yes, I think so. If you are going, pack your hand sanitizer, face coverings and do not be shaking anyone’s hand. Remember to social distance. Your health may depend upon being vigilant.
