Elder Care Attorney, Mindy Felinton encourages readers to make the best of a situation that is unprecedented by following the directives of national and local authorities, staying calm and optimistic and enjoying the spring break.
Delray Beach, FL. April 8, 2020: Mindy Felinton, founder of Felinton Elder Law & Estate Planning Centers, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “Talk About A Spring Break.” Ms. Felinton encourages readers to get out into the nicer weather when and if they can.
Felinton exclaims quizzically, “Well, who on earth could have told us that the whole world would be going on Spring break this year?” She continues, “College kids aren’t the only ones, though it looks like they’ll be getting a break that may last all the way until the fall season. Just about every person of every age – with the exception of the extraordinary medical professionals working around the clock, grocery store employees and other service providers who cannot work from home – is being forced to take a break!”
“Without question we are experiencing unprecedented times,” Felinton says. She goes on to say, “It seems like Mother Earth decided to take a recess! What else could make the whole world stop? Certainly not anything less than a deadly virus.” As she points out, “Everyone is forced to stop and take notice. No human intervention can stop it. The only thing that seems to work is to stay away from others, so the virus has no one to spread to.”
“So, please,” writes Felinton, “keep yourself and your loved ones safe. That means following the directives of national and local authorities.” “In most places throughout the country,” she says, “that means staying home except for going out for food and/or medical supplies and/or going to the doctor and taking care of legal business that requires immediate attention.”
