I’ve been thinking it might be time to morph this blog, Math in the Time of Corona, into something new. After all, it’s been 861 days since my first emergency remote class was taught March 9, 2020. Vaccines have been created, debated, and updated. Masks are no longer mandated. People are venturing out on delayed adventures. I’ve travelled to mathematics conferences nationally and internationally. I still wear a mask on airplanes, at airports, and on public transportation but I have started to let my guard down elsewhere.
Just yesterday I received an announcement that the Museum of Mathematics’s program Mind-benders for the Quarantined, after 120 weeks of puzzles, has ended their amazing pandemic contribution. Huge applause to Dr. Peter Winkler for his positivity and creativity throughout!
My husband and I arrived home after almost a month of continuous travel. The boys arrived yesterday from a family visit to TN. When my oldest said he didn’t feel well this morning, everyone took a rapid COVID test.
Mark reports no fever and a slight headache so far. We will all be taking rapid tests regularly for a little while. So it is not quite over yet in this household. But at least we are at home.
