The new variants are here now, well, at least one, and there's another in S. Calif. which won't take long to get here. If it goes as it has in other countries, they say that it will get quite a bit worse before it gets better. I hope not, but think that they are probably correct.
So, yes, it's a problem. I hope that Belinda is able to get her vaccine soon.
Please keep us updated, once you can start reaching out to the rescues.
