My Take: By Matthew McCully

It’s interesting how this pandemic has blurred the line between collective and individual responsibility.
We are working together as a country, a province, a community, a family…to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
But outbreaks continue.
When new cases of the coronavirus crop up in an area, there is always a small part of me thinking how did that happen? Who didn’t mask up or wash their hands enough?
But it’s really not that simple.
It’s not worth the effort to try and understand who went where or touched what to start a chain reaction.
There are medical professionals working on that.
I believe this virus will continue to spread as long as people keep thinking outsiders or irresponsible people are to blame.
I think it’s a lot safer to assume we all have it, and we could all spread it, so we should act accordingly.
