As we are getting deeper and deeper into Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home order, people are starting to get frantic. Recently there was a protest in downtown Spokane of angry people wanting to go back to work.
Although I understand where they’re coming from, I don’t think this was the way to voice their opinion. With all the new information about how COVID-19 spreads and how dangerous it really is, having a big rally won’t help them get back to work any sooner. This is how the virus spreads quickly. Even if they feel healthy, they can still be putting others at risk.
In this time, we need to think about how we’re helping our community. If we remain calm for the time being, life will be back to normal as we know it. Let’s take advantage of what we have while we can — when do we ever have time to just hang out with our families?
