With the start of the last nine weeks, summer and the end of the school year is quickly approaching. In this week’s Viral Thoughts, Haille Hughes stress the importance of keeping up social distancing to achieve a COVID free summer.

Hoping for a COVID free summer

With the start of the last nine weeks, summer and the end of the school year is quickly approaching. After nearly a year of corona and a disappointing summer in 2020, many are looking forward to what summer ‘21 holds. However, it’s only going to be as great as we make it. Meaning, if we don’t continue with proper precautions now, it’s likely summer won’t be as we’ve hoped.

Vaccines are being given and mandates are being lifted, creating hope for normality. That sense and feeling of what society deems as normal are getting so close. We’re in a rush to get there, but by rushing, we may lessen our chances of reaching it. It’s like the saying “slow and steady wins the race”. Yes, we might be slow, however, we’re steady. Continuing to be “steady” will pay off more in the long run and allows us a higher chance of reaching our goal. It allows us to not get cocky, which would risk our end goal of a normal summer. 

Pushing through these last nine weeks isn’t going to be easy. Continuing to follow CDC guidelines for COVID isn’t going to be easy either. It’s never going to be easy, but the payoff of normalcy and a fun, safe, summer will be worth it.
