Coverage

Being at home in quarantine for so long, the only thing I can do to get outside but still be by myself is exercise. However, the beaches are closed and when I went to go to the track like I normally do, I found it to be closed. It is important to see how the town and the state of Maine are taking the virus very seriously as they should. This is affecting me and the other residents in York by making it a lot harder to get exercise. Because of this order, I now mainly stay in my house all day and hardly go outside. It is so hard to live in isolation for this long of a period without knowing when it will end. Everyone is taking all precautions needed to stop the spread of the coronavirus and that includes the closing of any and all public places. Closing the athletic field was surprising and eye opening for me. This shows how important and dangerous the virus can be and for everyone to be taking every cautionary measure possible.
