While many young people continue to party and ignore warnings to social distance, Mt. Airy resident Deborah Haas, 58, worries about her 24-year-old daughter, Madeleine Stander, who works in an urgent care facility that tests people for COVID-19.
“It’s hard on all of us who have our family members out there doing healthcare on the front lines,” she said. “We can’t go and put our arms around them and tell them we’re there for them when physically we can’t touch them. None of us has faced a pandemic in our lifetime, and when someone is young and strong, how do parents teach them that this virus is new and as strong as they are?”
