“Breaking Up with Covid: It’s Over”


Sarah O'Moore, Staff Writer

Dear Covid,

I don’t know how to start this letter. During this last year of us being together, we have gone through a lot of ups and downs, and I have learned so much from it. But after a lot of thought, I’ve decided to put a stop to our relationship. When we started getting serious in March, so many lives were affected and I wish I could take it all back. You became such a toxic aspect in my life. You are so controlling and won’t even let me go outside without covering my nose and mouth. It has become so bad to where it is dangerous if my grandma goes anywhere near you. Right as I was about to start a big chapter of my life and go on a grand vacation, you shut everything down to the point I couldn’t go anywhere. When I confronted you about this you said you would change and everything would go back to normal, but it still hasn’t. It has gone way too far with you lying and controlling everything.

I know we were so excited to go on our vacation for Valentine’s Day. The tickets were cheap, places aren’t as crowded, and we would have a break from all the craziness in our lives. Now that I think about it, I don’t know if I could survive on a vacation with you. But to be honest, I doubt anyone would even let you on the plane in the first place. Wherever you go people’s lives are at risk. The only reason you are even able to go places is because you can’t be caught. It has reached the point where some have gotten vaccinated to stop you.

Rona, it isn’t me, it’s you. I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Leave and never come back.” You haven’t only hurt me, you’ve made people lose their jobs just so they wouldn’t have to be around you. I don’t care where you go as long as you stay away from everyone and stop bothering them. We are now officially done. Goodbye.
