Small actions today can have large consequences over the next two weeks. Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s leading epidemiologist, said on Face the Nation, “if it looks like you’re overreacting, you’re probably doing the right thing.”
It is in that spirit that we run the following letter from an Upper West Sider.
To all the dog folks,
I write this with great fear, and worry, with a side of outrage.
I came home from my walk in the park this morning troubled and scared at hearing from two regular dog people that their spouses were sick at home with the “flu or maybe Covid 19”…..my reaction WHY ARE YOU HERE AMONGST US? Regardless of 6 to 10 feet apart you are supposed to SELF QUARANTINE….are you not on this planet hearing the same news we all are…?
I then got home to do a zoom breakfast date with friends to learn a dear friend (my first to come down with the virus) is in the hospital on a VENTILATOR. A ventilator folks!!!! That’s REAL!
This is not a casual virus….and FYI I have not seen him in 6 months.
If you live with or have been directly in contact with someone who has a flu or Covid 19 YOU must be in self QUARANTINE ASAP end of story….period….no and’s if’s or but’s about it.
And I am not sorry to sound so stern because it’s a goddamn world wide Pandemic! WAKE UP!
Please be smart respectful kind humans and don’t put others in jeopardy.
