To combat coronavirus, unleash the private sector

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.

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.
