There has been talk from Texas Governor Abbott about reopening businesses throughout the state in the first few days of May. This would include restaurants, hair salons, gyms, and retail stores. We have yet to see the peak of cases or deaths from the Coronavirus, and it is extremely risky to reopen these businesses before that happens. I work at a gym and as much as I would like to have my job back, I value my health and safety more than my job. Gyms are full of germs and sweaty people, creating a breeding ground for diseases to spread... AKA the last place that should be open during a pandemic. I miss hanging out with friends and going out on the weekends just as much as anybody else, but I understand that it is not safe to do so right now. So, PLEASE do the right thing and stay home and remain socially distant until the number of Coronavirus cases starts to decline. We don't need to create a second wave of this pandemic because people can't be responsible and considerate to themselves and their neighbors. Remember to wash your hands, don't touch your face, remain 6 feet away from people who you don't live with, and wear a mask if you have to go out in public. Just do the right thing to protect yourself and others!
