I’ve noticed an increase in eager people thinking it’s okay to go out and party or crowd at reopened recreational areas. Recently, in California there was a crowd of around 40,000 people at one of its beaches. It goes to show how irresponsible people can be during a global health crisis.
Just because the curve for COVID-19 cases is flattening doesn’t mean people should immediately start going out in large groups. If we were to all go about our regular lives now, there’d be a good chance that there’d be a surge in COVID-19 cases that we might not be prepared for.
I understand that humans are social creatures, but flooding to places like this during a pandemic is a bad idea. It’s just a common courtesy to confine yourself to your family and loved ones and stay home.
Sure, it can be tough being isolated for so long, but keeping our communities safe and virus-free is what’s important. The least we can do is follow the social distancing guidelines and stay at home orders. Rather than flocking to beaches and going out in huge groups to satisfy social satisfaction, we should be as safe as possible to continue flattening the curve.
