I have done hours of research, reading, and watching various newscasts regarding the current health crisis. I’ve spoken to friends around the globe, people I trust, and I no longer believe that this pandemic should be taken lightly. While the information available to us is ever-changing, I believe we need to be cautious about the opinions and conclusions we come to.
Are there over-reactions? Certainly! But there are also under-reactions. I fall somewhere in the middle.
The bottom line is, we don’t know what we don’t know. I will continue to watch, listen, and do my best to keep an open mind during the developing realities we are facing.
For now, I’m choosing to stay home and hunker down until further notice. For me, this is the responsible decision for my family, my community, and for myself.
No matter your opinions around COVID-19, government reaction, or media coverage, I implore you to think outside of yourself. Being cautious will not hurt others – Ignoring world health recommendations may.
I share my personal decision and opinion here and request your respect and understanding as I did not arrive to my choice lightly or without regard for how my personal decision may affect others.
