We must all be a little selfless and compassionate to those at risk from this horrid virus. While we, as teenagers at high school, aren’t that much at risk we must remember that there are other people who are at risk and that our actions will and do have consequences on others. So to keep our selves and others healthy and safe it is the best course of action to stay at home if possible and leave only when necessary. Our PM has started to ban certain things to keep to the rule of social distancing. Before I go ahead and tell you what we can no-longer do I must stress how important social distancing is. While we should not stop doing the things we love due to Covid-19 we also need to exercise our common sense and try to make sacrifices. Stay At Home If Possible, its not the end of the world, and we will minimise the risk if we do so.
Here is the list of things not allowed during this time (for at least 6 months):
