(I tell you how things gotta be and things you’d better settle down and get used to, lest you be dealt something worse.)
All the specialists agree: Re-opening the country –even on an Terror-Level: Orange — on May 1st is an overly optimistic step.
We still need to improve testing procedures. We still need to solidify tracking procedures. We still need to get everyone into the system so we can have valid, useful information to battle both this and future attacks.
Instead, citizens who have never seen this illness firsthand are pushing for the gates of “FREEDOM” like a herd sprinting for a cliff. And it looks like they may get what they want.
This means there will be a wave of new infections. There will be death. Then these people will come crying that they need help. And doctors will help them because that’s what they’ve sworn to do. But it’s time to start making the moves that ensure that everyone who is doing everything right gets treated first.
Is that you?
Here’s a checklist everyone should be getting 100% on:
- Wear a mask in public
- Wash & sanitize your hands
- Cough & sneeze into your elbow
- Stay 6 feet away from anyone who doesn’t live with you
- Sanitize surfaces before and after use
- Do not shake hands
- Stay connected and hold social events (from casual parties to weddings and funerals) online, whenever possible
- Only leave the house if it is mandatory
- Stay out of the sun
- Avoided beaches, hiking trails, parks, and any public outdoor activity
- Get current on all vaccinations
- Input your Direct Deposit information at USA.gov
These are the first steps to staying safe and tracking illness when it does spread. It ensures you are not a danger to medical professionals and can be seen quickly if you are infected. It also means you are first in line to receive reimbursements issued to you by the federal government and who doesn’t need that?
More steps will come later that will make things much more safe and secure than they are right now. But, like everything, they will take a little time.
For now, just make sure you are where you need to be, doing what you need to do. If so, the system will take care of you.
And you and your family deserve that peace of mind.
