Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.

It’s sad to say, but for a lot of people, until Covid “hits close to home”, they don’t understand the gravity of the situation. If they have no one in their immediate circle at high risk, they don’t seem to care as much, which is unfortunate as you never know how this virus can affect individuals. They think that just because they can survive the virus they’ll be fine. However, we see more studies come out every day about the after effects of the virus (lung and heart issues, etc.)
