24 High-Risk People You Should Practice Social Distancing For During The Coronavirus Pandemic

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, people in the U.S. and other affected countries are being bombarded with reminders to practice effective hand-washing techniques, cover their mouths when they cough, and, as much as possible, engage in social distancing. There were still a lot of people who went out to bars over the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day, and tonight there might be more.

People below the age of 70 with healthy immune systems might not have to worry about dying from COVID-19, but there are a lot of individuals who don’t fit that description. The more the virus is able to spread, the more risk there is for people with underlying health conditions who could die from the illness. These people watch the news with more than just existential unease, and they are begging people to practice social distancing.

Standing alongside them are the exhausted healthcare workers who are struggling to make it through never-ending shifts as hospitals fill up with coronavirus patients. The sooner we can get this under control, the sooner they might be able to take some well-deserved time off to be with their families. They and high-risk individuals are using the hashtag #HighRiskCovid19 to spread the word.

In spite of the warnings, some people are still insisting on going out, even sometimes bragging about doing so as though they don’t understand that just because they won’t die from COVID-19, it doesn’t mean they can’t spread it to people who might.

So here is a list of the people you should be practicing social distancing for, if you still need to be guilted into it.
