With each passing day, there's the tangible taste of freedom as we extend the streak of days with no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the MIA.
Students are slowly making their way back to school this week and it's almost, but not quite a month since Griffith has had a COVID-19 case.
Disruption to our lives doesn't end when the pandemic restrictions are lifted however.
People heading to Leeton, Narrandera or Wagga will have to consult their GPS with a new bridge to be put in place at the Yoogali intersection.
The long-awaited project is finally getting some momentum and we'll be able to enjoy a much safer intersection but just like COVID-19 - there's going to be some disruption to our lives.
Recovering from the lockdown isn't going to happen overnight but for small businesses - a major part of our economy, there will be some help to work out what's what as we return to work.
Griffith City Council has heard calls for help and is preparing to do what they can to help out. Their plans will see homeowners and businesses get rebates to help the hip pocket.
As ever, we'll keep an eye on what's happening around town and if you've got something to share - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
