I think people need to do what they can to stop disease and prevent outbreaks.
However I see, in reaction to some closures there has not been much reduction in vehicle traffic because of the allowing of drive throughs, deliveries, and even adding some. Thus pollution does not go down. Much of air pollution is caused by motor vehicles in Minnesota.
Maybe as it warms up more people will stay outside of their motor vehicles.
Then I heard someone say we should leave holiday lights on. Not only does this cause pollution, using more electricity and light pollution, migration is happening now and some birds depend on light to navigate and extra lights may mess them up.
Reducing pollution can help us stay healthier so I hope we all do our part along with everything else we do to stay healthy.
