Spring has sprung, and it is starting to feel like a real, live re-opening is afoot. More of us are emerging from our shelters and returning to social life, partially or fully vaccinated, perhaps feeling a bit blinded and rubbing our eyes in the light at the end of the tunnel, after a solid year spent in the half light of shelter-in-place.

Every year, Legal Aid of Marin and MCBA honor the many volunteers who provide pro bono services “to create a more just and equitable Marin Community.” This year’s event started with a wonderful video montage of volunteers and Legal Aid staff over the years. Legal Aid of Marin Board President Jessica Karner served as the master of ceremonies for the evening and reminded us that this year’s ceremony covers two years, since last year’s was a casualty of the brand-new shelter-in-place orders.

A few days from publication of this issue of the Marin Lawyer will be the one-year anniversary of the first shelter-in-place orders. How and where we are working now looks different not only from before the pandemic but from soon after it started as well. Remote working continues to evolve and it is clear to everyone that some aspects of it will remain when the pandemic is over. In other words, remote working isn’t going away.

So, can y’all believe that it’s March already? This year seems to be just racing along. At least it feels like we’re racing in the right direction, with hints that we might be (with fingers crossed) turning the corner on worst of this pandemic. After (can you believe it?) almost a full year of on-again, off-again shelter-in-place restrictions, the number of new cases has dropped dramatically over the past month, as have the number of hospitalizations and deaths in Marin, throughout California, and nationwide.
