Looks like Japan is now on lockdown

Just looking at headlines on my Iphone on the news wigit on IOS, looks like Japan is now on lockdown and there are no spectators allowed this year for the olympics that are to take place.

I am hoping that they do not have a long lockdown like we did, and I'm happy that ours is coming to an end.

I went for a walk this morning without a mask, and it felt pretty good not having to worry about it.

I know there will be times when I am still to ware a mask, but I definitely like the option now.

Let's continue to stay safe.
