I understand that Spring Break is a longstanding tradition for young people, however, there has forever been the expectation that one person’s actions would not jeopardize the well being of others. I cannot imagine that the throngs of beach goers in Florida, for example, did not include at least one individual who had been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
Now that individual, assuming there is ONLY one, will unknowingly pass the infection to others. Let the sharing begin.
Just so you know, Spring Breakers, here are the stats regarding COVID-19 fatalities each day that you were partying.
- Saturday, March 14 404 Died
- Sunday, March 15 686 Died
- Monday, March 16 642 Died
- Tuesday, March 17 817 Died while you were drinking green beer
- Wednesday, March 18 973 Died while you cleared your hangover
- Thursday, March 19 1,080 Died
- Friday, March 20 28 Died before 5 AM today
Just so you know, I’m not blaming you for the deaths of 4,630 loved ones that succumbed to COVID-19 while you downed an equal number of Coronas, but I will not feel guilty thinking that you might be responsible for someone else’s demise. Please do the right thing. Please do the moral thing, and come home to distance yourself socially like the rest of us have been doing. Just do your part! There’s a check waiting for you!
Today may feel like a beach day on Delmarva, but the recommendation is to stay at home and find a way to enjoy the warm day.
