Average life expectancy in America 78. Covid does not warrant a shutdown.

Please start reporting when everyone in the tristate area gets a flu/fever/heart disease, that way we can raise awareness about other more serious health issues. Please stop being so biased on only corona stats matter.

Thanks and stay safe all.
