WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) The falling numbers of COVID-19 patients needing hospital care have not gone unnoticed and neither has the fast-evolving strategy for inoculating those needing protection the most.

If youre like Michael Towsley of West Springfield, youre feeling optimistic about the situation.

I think were doing really great. There seems to be a renewed optimism, with shots going into peoples arms. People getting the vaccine, the rates going down. I think people are hopeful and theyre starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, Towsley said.

When youre on the front lines, like West Springfields chief of operations, Carly Damossi, youre sensitive to notice shifting trends, like unmistakable evidence that the Pandemic response is accelerating in a positive direction.

Its nice to see the numbers changing, we need something to look forward to, so looking forward going back to school, getting out into the community, outdoor activities, weve tried our best on the local side, Domassi told 22News.

And its becoming a contagious kind of optimism, hopeful signs passed on from one person to the next.

As she waited to be tested for COVID-19 Sunday afternoon, Nancy Santinello has also been affected by the shifting sentiments.

Im feeling pretty hopeful, you know, youve got to stay positive, hopefully not that its going to be over, but hopefully were back to somewhat normal soon, Santinello said.

Hopefully, in the days ahead there will be further developments in Massachusetts and across America to build on Michael Towsleys observation that were starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
