STONE: COVID fight needs personal responsibility

While the rates of COVID19 continue to rise across West Texas, it’s drawn an intensely heightened sense of urgency in protecting ourselves and those around us. Wearing a mask, washing hands, and social distancing have become the “new normal” both now and in the unforeseeable future. In an age of instant gratification and immediate results, we might question why there hasn’t been a resolution to the COVID19 pandemic by now. All too often, the expectations of a quick fix to our problems falls squarely on the shoulders of others and not ourselves. Patience, consideration, and personal responsibility seem to be forgotten traits that once held us to higher standards and in reverence in respecting others. This is evident, as a whole, in how poorly we are managing our own health. Even in abidance to all the prevention standards, you can still contract COVID19. So aside from wearing that mask, washing your hands, and social distancing…you need to ask yourself, what am I doing to make myself stronger to fight COVID19 should I get it?
