Over the past few months, the Coronavirus has been a huge issue all around the world, including at our school, Spring Mills High School. 

While many students have been doing everything they can to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus and get it under control, some students have carried on with their normal lives; socializing and thinking of our leave from school as a vacation.  

As of March 24, 2020, our governor, Jim Justicehas passed a “stay at home” order, pertaining to all residents of West Virginia. 

This order states that you can continue doing things such as go to the grocery store, go to medical appointments, care for a loved one if necessaryreceive deliveries, etc.  

On the other hand, there are some things that we are not supposed to do. Some of these things are visit friends or family if there is no urgent need, gather with a large group of people, visit loved ones in the hospital, etc. 

Although this order is in place, some people do not take it seriously or think that they need to follow it. Some people continue to hang out with their friends and socialize as they please. 

It frustrates me that people still continue to carry out normal activities and aren’t staying home. This act was put in place to help slow down the rapid spread of the Coronavirus, which can’t happen if people are continuing to hang out with friends and doing group activities.  

Read about the ways that you can help slow the spread of the Coronavirus and keep you and your love ones safe.
