A group of teenagers who attended a party last Saturday in Sherbrooke is concerned for their health after learning that two young people tested positive to the COVID-19 were also present at the gathering.
Social distancing was rare not to say non-existent during the evening that was held in a private residence. It was all the more difficult to meet due to the consumption of alcohol.
However, the concern is palpable, especially due to the fact that some of the guests have frequented the bars afterwards.
In isolation pending the result of her screening test, a person who has been in contact with someone who was present at this evening tells of the impacts that are the result of a night like this.
“First, they think they are all invincible compared to the COVID worse it is for the world around them and who pay the price,” she said, under cover of the anonymity.
This person cites as an example his place of work, where his employer had to disinfect the entire space. This is not counting all of his colleagues who are also in administrative segregation waiting for their result.
“It’s still sad all that is engendered by it because of a few people who have made the party pis who have just not been paying attention. Me, honestly, I hope they will become aware of the scale that it may take for just a party”, she says.
Since a few weeks, the case of COVID-19 in young people are rising in the province. Well aware of this problem, the public health of the Estrie region believes that it will change its communication channels to raise the awareness of young people.
