There was positive news in the ongoing efforts to curb coronavirus last week when Pfizer announced that it was testing a vaccine that is reported to be 90 per cent effective.
We’ll see what happens as testing continues, but that and other optimistic news about other potential vaccines suggest that maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel in this pandemic.
Then again, any vaccine that makes it to market will need to go through stringent testing and then it’s unsure how quickly they can roll it out to the public and who will be the first to get the shot.
It certainly is needed with coronavirus hitting record levels in many places across Canada and talk of more lockdowns, restrictions and even curfews to prevent its spread.
As dire as the situation is, perhaps there is reason to be optimistic that when the golf season gets underway in 2021 and there will be no need to close shops or dining rooms/restaurants, or that tournaments or other revenue producing events can contribute to the bottom line.
Even if we’re not completely back to normal, does positive new about a potential vaccine make you more optimistic that we’ll be return to what we perceive as nornal by the time the season gets underway at the golf operation where you work?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
