Hold the line

quote [ You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk. […] If your son visits his girlfriend, and you later sneak over for coffee with a neighbor, your neighbor is now connected to the infected office worker that your son’s girlfriend’s mother shook hands with. […] This is not a joke or a hypothetical. ]

Ack, Medium! But helpful advice to pondering parents.
