Downtown Whitewater – Thurs., 3/19 @ 8:21 a.m. – An Amazingly Eerie Result of Social Distancing Compliance

This ghost town-like photograph of Downtown Whitewater was taken by Ron Binning on Thursday, March 19 at 8:21 a.m. Before the COVID-19 social distancing mandate there would have been the cars of many breakfast diners at Jessica’s Restaurant. These days, Jessica’s does serve breakfast beginning at 8:00 a.m., but it’s on a carryout basis only.

As we continue to cooperate with the mandates and strong recommendations of federal and state officials, how about being grateful for the blessings of living in a community that isn’t densely populated and yet filled with people who care about each other? Infections are unfortunately sure to come, but hopefully by helping to “flatten the curve” we’ll contribute to keeping our hospitals and medical professionals from being overwhelmed.
