Coronavirus - The Youth Just Don't Get It!
Each day I tell my listeners to be safe, social distance and wear a mask when in public. There is so much division going on during this pandemic. We need to create our own new normal. We also need to get it through the head of young people that wearing a mask and getting tested doesn't only help them but it helps others. They just don't seem to get it. I was discussing testing here in Rehoboth Beach with a very young neighbor here in our community.
I asked him if he got tested since it's being offered for free in many places. His response to me was "I have no symptoms." I stressed that you don't need to have symptoms to have Coronavirus and there are lots of people who never get symptoms. It's important to remember that just because someone feels ok, they could still have this virus and could spread it to many many innocent people.
It seems that this is not sinking in with our youth. They think they are infallible. We need to change their mindsets. They did it in Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and I could go on and on so we CAN do it here in America!
