By MORGAN ADAMSON – Ah, summer, beautiful, beautiful, summer. The time where we get to have fun, there’s no school, the weather’s nice, we get to be outside.
That might all come to a screeching halt because of the global condition happening right now.
Will we even have a summer? The question we’re all asking is–will we even have a summer? To everyone’s relief, Indiana enters the Green Zone today.
As basically everyone knows at this point, Social Distancing is still in effect. We stay 6 feet apart at all times, and wear a mask everywhere when we’re in public. The summer is a time to hang out with your friends and have a good time, but the COVID-19 epidemic may have ruined that. All of this has gone on for much longer than anyone has anticipated, but no one expected it to go through our summer.
How can we stay connected if this is a social distancing summer?
We can always see our friends while maintaining the mandatory 6 feet distance away from each other and wearing masks to prevent any disease transfer. We can also spend time with our families by taking walks, swimming and overall just enjoying each other’s company. As always, you can also Facetime, text, and call your friends, as well as doing many other technology related activities.
The coronavirus epidemic may have cancelled school and took the whole world by surprise, but that doesn’t mean this can’t be a fun and exciting summer. Though it may be hard, make sure to make the most of it, and have as much fun as possible.
