To the editor,
I read a headline this week saying Dr. Bonnie Henry is telling people to go outside. I was shocked to read that those people who have been inside are really taken with the negative news which is centred to frighten everyone.
My husband and myself are treating things differently and have been enjoying the outdoors from the get-go. We are of course taking precautions, but are living life to the fullest as much as we can to stay mentally and physically healthy. There are many places one can go where there are not too many people around. Drives are also very pleasant and a lovely change of scenery.
Do not allow the media to scare you and that way, you will stay healthy in every way.
Linda Smith, Nanaimo
