I want to take a moment to ask a big favour from all of us frontline health-care workers.
I know many people are at home and looking for stuff to do, but this is not the time to be on ladders, on roofs, pruning with chainsaws or doing other work that sends thousands of people to the hospital every year.
Please, just bubble wrap, read a book, do some painting and organizing, but don’t risk injury.
Please also be extremely careful and take precautions while riding bikes, motorcycles or ATVs.
Always wear a helmet and never operate under the influence of anything.
(This should always be a rule, but especially now.)
When you are looking for places to take your kids, consider that the COVID-19 virus can survive for hours to days on various surfaces.
I know it all feels crazy right now, but please sit tight. This, too, shall pass and then we can get back to life as we knew it.
