Fellow Carpinterians, even if you think the virus crisis is overblown—what if you’re wrong? Please err on the side of caution. Our choices over the next few weeks really matter. If we do too little, by mid-April we will see a massive shortage of hospital beds. Now, this virus takes two weeks to incubate. So, those hospital shortage victims are not yet infected.
Let’s choose to protect one other. We can be contagious without showing symptoms and six-feet distance applies outside, too! When you get too close to me, you put everyone at risk—yourself, me, those who cross our paths next. I’m angry that I may need to stop taking walks because others are keeping too close. Most ridiculous are groups of exercisers who brush against me so they can maintain six-feet from each other. Seriously folks. What if I’ve got it? What if you do?
