Officials in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey—and Philadelphia—have all announced new restrictions on indoor dining, outdoor gatherings, gyms, museums, schools, and, occasionally, nail salons.

Or, it will get us to Thanksgiving without dying of COVID-19 first if we wear masks, wash hands, and avoid large gatherings, especially inside. We can do this. It’s slightly less onerous than, say, storming Omaha beach, rescuing someone from a burning house, or working to save lives in an ICU with coronavirus patients.
