As of this last Monday, all classes, support groups, doctor visits and association meetings have been cancelled or moved online. We only go out for necessities and avoid people. “You ain’t seen nothing yet,” Jack O’Connell of the Sac Bee reported. I think we may be re-evaluating, as Marc Breton of the Bee reported on Wednesday that:
This current isolation makes you question our tolerance for science denial. Our tolerance for a broken health care system. Our tolerance for ignorance on public health and homelessness. Our tolerance for weakened public schools …
You still see and hear from people in this town – the capital of California and one of the largest economies in the world – who are in denial of what we are experiencing and how we got here.
We’re going to be paying for that denial for years to come.
Stay safe, wash your hands frequently, and practice social distancing.
