Letter: It won’t kill us to be cautious, but it might if we’re not


I know this is a difficult time for the restaurant industry, but I was shocked during a recent visit to a drive-thru.

I witnessed a drive-thru window server use bare hands to take a beverage from the lid, set it down on the counter, hand the card reader to the customer, then receive it back and hand the customer his drink, again by the lid.

I was shocked — and I left my drink behind.

I struggle with the social distancing as much as the next person and I miss my friends.

But there are a lot of people close to me who will die from this virus if they get it.

This is a great opportunity to consider others around us.

It won’t kill us to be cautious, but it might if we’re not.
