Keep your social distance, please!

Posted on April 6, 2020 by Sonoma Valley Sun
People in my Springs neighborhood are ignoring social distancing, including neighboring Latinx families but also white folks up here from SF who are second homeowners and walked right up to my partner Stan who is at high risk.
I’ve also seen lack of distancing at the store. Is this happening all over the Valley? Are Spanish speakers getting the message? I’m freaking out and totally hunkered down and scared to even go out front of my house!

  1. Dear Teri,
    Please think about conveying positive messages in the time of the Corona virus. You could have said “Hey everyone, please remember some of us are health compromised and require 6-8 feet distancing. We appreciate when you want to say “hello” but please remember our new community rules. And if I back away from you when you approach me, no offense is intended.”
    There is no need to point “fearful fingers” at specific groups in Sonoma. There is enough of that going around already in the U.S. already and we are ALL responsible to refrain from making divisive comments.
    Teri, I understand you are afraid – I am too. Stay safe & stay inside. Social distancing is not perfect – that is why you must stay home.
