Letter to the Editor - March 26, 2020

Advice to those not practicing social distancing

Editor’s note: The Daniel Island News has seen a number of comments from concerned residents about people – young and old – still not heeding social distancing advice. This Letter to the Editor from Dr. Charles Geilfuss received March 19 explains the issue.

Last night, on my way home from work, I stopped at the Publix on DI to pick up a few grocery items. Walking to the front entrance I was greeted by about 15-20 teenagers hanging out at the front. Did their parents not get the message?

We are supposed to be maintaining social distance. It is why their school has been canceled for the foreseeable future. While COVID-19 is little risk to them, the same may not be true when they visit their grandparents. 

I would encourage parents to keep children home for the duration of this event. It is fine to play outside but stay in your yard.

Just calling for a little common sense.
