River Center and Roy Wilkins during the pandemic

There is some life in downtown St. Paul these days as people use the large testing site and the new vaccination site at River Center and Roy Wilkins. Yesterday there were so many people out in the area it almost looked like the before time.

Normally in the spring, there are high school tournaments and in the winter there is hockey. I have noticed that the restaurants and bars along West 7th street have been getting a lot more traffic too.

I was worried that the vaccine would not come to St. Paul. There isn’t a Walmart or a Hyvee in the city limits. None of the local Walgreens or CVS stores were giving vaccinations the last time I checked.
