Letter: Callous Disregard for Others’ Lives

Letter to the Editor

With the coronavirus devastating lives across the globe, I am disappointed with our community’s response here in Malibu to the virus. Instead of following the executive order from the governor of California to stay at home and shelter in place, it seems that Malibu residents have disregarded this advice. They are still having their construction workers to their houses. 

By doing so, they put our entire community at risk and many might become infected and die because of their arrogance. This stance is insulting to those of us who are staying at home and doing our job of being self-quarantined to help prevent the spread of this horrible global disease. 

The inability of many to follow this simple advice and protect their neighbors means the only way we will solve the pandemic is to institute martial law.
