Dear Christine, Overreacting in Oregon

  • Posted on August 2, 2020 at 5:15 pm

Dear Christine, I have a friend that lives in Florida and works at a hospital.  Currently her family from SE MI is visiting her. They have been staying at her house for about a week now.  One of the family members just tested positive for COVID.  Since he tested positive they have NOT self-quarantined.  They have been to restaurants, aquariums, zoos, stores and beaches.  Shouldn’t they all be tested since they are all currently at the same house and self-quarantine? I kind of mentioned something to her and  she said it’s fine.  “The virus is here to stay and we better get used to it.”  And she and her family won’t sit in the house with her son since he is COVID positive.  But they have been around him for over a week. But they won’t get tests. So now her whole family will be travelling back to Michigan this week by plane.  And most likely her sister will go back to her job as an OR nurse and might possibly be COVID positive. Am I overreacting??? Or do ya’ll think this is horribly negligent of the entire family to not be in quarantine and possibly spreading this to dozens…
