Consider One Another In A Time Of COVID, Or Stay Home Please


To the Editor: 

To the woman who sneezed at me on the Beach Street sidewalk late Saturday afternoon, November 28. How thoughtful of you to turn away from your friend when you got the urge to sneeze! Rather than sneeze on her, or into your sleeve, you inflicted two sneezes on someone who simply happened to be passing by. 

In the darkness I didn’t get a good look at you, couldn’t tell whether you were even wearing a mask.  Not wanting to make a scene, I just kept walking.  But I now feel compelled to get tested for COVID. You know, COVID. 

Oh yeah, apparently you don’t know! 

Please, people, show some care and come consideration when out in public.  

Better yet, stay home.
