B.C. is now solidly in phase 2 of re-opening the economy. Numbers from provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry show we have flattened the COVID-19 curve rather successfully and new cases continue to decline, particularly in Interior Health.

Masks are now part of everyday life, the crisis of infection in long-term care homes appear to being effectively addressed and contact tracing appears to be identifying people actually at risk.

While Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix continue to urge British Columbians not to lose focus, we're sensing some fatigue and perhaps some fading interest in the pandemic and we're wondering if these are factors perhaps making people more confident to resume their everyday life.

Has your attitude about the pandemic changed? Are you just as vigilant now as you were in March? Is the beckoning of summer weather and perhaps more urgent news taken your eye off the ball? Let us know by answering the question below and we'd be happy to discuss it in the comments as well.
