Staying at Home and Staying Hopeful During Pandemic

Waking up to stay at home. That’s what’s happening on this first day of Governor Newsom’s new order that tightens COVID restrictions on where we can go and where we can’t go and what’s open and what’s not open.

While not as strict as the first stay at home order back in March, it still puts thousands of restaurant and personal service business workers on at least a three week long furlough.

We know how the pandemic has already put the economy on the critical list and this means more financial pain.

A new survey finds that almost two-thirds of Americans say they’re now living paycheck-to-paycheck as the year draws to a close.

The poll of more than 2,000 Americans to see how spending habits and personal finances are holding up during the pandemic, found that 63 percent of respondents have cut back on their spending due to COVID.Six in 10 say they’re doing it to be more cautious, but half say it’s because of losing income at work.

The hope for those whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic, that Congress and the President will finally get a way too long delayed relief bill approved and signed to help.

But the help that’s most needed to make things better right now, with the vaccines for most of the population still a few months away, is for those who are not wearing masks and not following the other health guidelines to do so.And for those who are doing in to keep doing it.
