HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO
We are NOT isolated but we MUST stay home if you can.
We are seeing a patchwork of public health decisions to address this evolving national crisis.
We know what we must do. It is hard. It is painful in the immediate and uncertain future.
We have duties:
Protect the most vulnerable by staying home.
Protect our hospital system from becoming overwhelmed by staying home.
Protect our First Responders by staying home
You can be a hero by staying home
As I heard someone say:
“If the healthy and optimistic refuse to act, they will doom the vulnerable”
“Saving the world by staying home and watching TV seems silly”
“If we do this right, nothing bad happens … and some will say it was all for nothing.
Let’s hope we have to deal with criticism.”
IDEAS ON HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO
Do NOT go visit friends at risk.
BUT PLEASE CALL OR VIDEO THEM … A LOT!
As others have said, it is hard to not go visit some people, even in our family. Families are setting rules who can go visit the most vulnerable.
We fear about isolation they feel.
Find other ways to connect if you want to save their lives.
I get it – it’s hard. Our usual methods to relieve stress of hurricanes now are dangerous – concerts, sports, gathering in community centers, going out to eat and visit our favorite pub.
But I am so impressed at some of the great ideas to blunt this and stay connected.
