It is another sign we are emerging from another COVID surge.

I think at this point we are all COVID fatigued. Actually, make that COVID exhausted! Even before the latest omicron surge!  So when a temporary mask mandate came into play late last year, we all sighed a collective 'not again.' But thankfully, this one is going away quickly.

According to the Times Union Governor Hochul announced today the state mandate for masks to be worn in all businesses will end tomorrow (Thursday, February 10).. The mask mandate for schools and will remain in place for the time being.

As we emerge from winter and head into Spring, seeing the COVID guidelines melt away with our winter thaw this week will be a welcome sign for all. It certainly feels like events and everything else we love to get out and see and do are getting back into a pre-pandemic full swing.

A great sign of this is the GNA concert calendar. It is shaping up to be one of our busiest concert years ever not just here in the Capital Region but all over Upstate New York. All of our favorite Country artists are eager to come and perform for us, and I think we are just as eager to get out and start living our best concert lives in the year ahead. We can't wait to see you in the months ahead!
