A New Event Emoji: ? 

​​Hello Neighbor, 

I tested positive for Covid last Thursday, and am under quarantine until the 23rd. I am feeling much better today, as the first few days I had a terrible fever, sore throat, chills, headache, and congestion. For those interested, I documented my experience on my instagram here and here, as well as my symptoms here.

I won’t be able to attend events for a while, but moving forward I included a new emoji– ? which indicates an event requires proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test. 

Please be safe, and well during these unprecedented times! 

 

So, What Should You Do Dec. 20-26?

For your convenience, this newsletter includes emojis to help you during these unprecedented times: 

  • The ? indicates an event is happening in-person inside.
  • The ? indicates an event is happening in-person outside
  • The ? indicates an event is happening virtually. 
  • The ? indicates an event requires proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test
  • And lastly, the ? indicates an event is free.
