Vaccines are in trials, and we should be seeing them soon – perhaps even by the fourth quarter of 2020. It will possibly require more than just one dose to protect a person, so it will take months to produce, distribute and administer billions of doses of any vaccine. It will likely take another 18-24 months to get back to a semblance of normalcy – ie no masks in public.

Stay safe.
