Harwich Health Department COVID-19 Bubble

Harwich has made my day. The graphic above, posted on their health department page, perfectly illustrates the problem that I have been telling friends about for months now. I have a dear friend that has defended her position about her personal protection and her families protection against the virus to me over and over again. The problem is that the grandchildren that are part of that bubble have to go out to work every single day in the public with exposure to countless other people. Her bubble is burst or so big to be of no consequence. Sadly, she won’t listen to me.
