Those that are most vulnerable in our society, the aging and those with underlying health problems, need to be protected. While children miss seeing their grandma and you might miss your parents, social distancing is still very important. The terrible effects of COVID-19 spreading through a nursing home have been seen over and over again. Once the virus makes it in, it can wipe out a large part of the population in a home.
This is why it is so important to keep our distance. Social distancing has had a positive effect, and we can see how new cases and deaths are finally declining, but there is a danger if we start ignoring social distancing guidelines. There is light on the horizon, but until there are widespread testing and a vaccine, we still need to be careful. Remember that by putting up with inconvenience a little longer, you could save someone’s life.
