PETERS – The road is calling this long weekend. Please don’t answer

MAYBE IT’S TOO LATE to ask you, beg you, plead with you not to travel this long weekend.

Likely, if you’re going somewhere to see family, you have already made those plans and the chances of convincing you to back out at the last minute are exceedingly slim.

That’s okay; I’ll try my best anyway.

It’s true that COVID-19 can find us where we are when we are staying where we are, but it’s far more probable that we will go and find COVID-19 somewhere else.

For most of us, being away from our families is painful — or at the very least, like an itch you need to scratch on a regular basis.

And so some are feeling itchy this weekend and may try to clandestinely get away.
