The emphasis on “public distancing” to combat the COVID-19/coronavirus should not be mistranslated into an edict to stop caring or taking necessary action. These are the times we must all commit ourselves to extraordinary personal responsibility and individual initiative. We must be courageous, not fearful. We must be wise, not obstinate. We must be a good neighbor, not an isolationist. We must be innovative and not captive. We must be compassionate and not self-centered.

In a matter of hours, the world in which we live changed last week, and that change started right here in Oklahoma.
These are extraordinary times in which we are living.
There have been a lot of changes in the state in just the past week due to COV- ID-19. But first and foremost, I continue to tell people not to panic. Yes, be careful about spreading germs by practicing good hygiene. Cover your mouth when you cough, wash your hands thoroughly—those guidelines are good yearround, regardless. This current situation won’t last forever, and we are all going to get through this. We all just need to stay calm, use common sense, and be good neighbors.
There’s a lot of talk going on right now about Coronavirus and the discussion ranges from “hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wives” to “don’t worry about it and go to work” but I think the reality falls somewhere in the middle.
