You couldn’t have been more careful?
What about all the old people that its life threatening for them to catch the virus.

Please we beg you to stay inside. This virus has claimed many lives and is no joke. I am sure you can have these weddings after this is all over but if you keep gathering in large groups it will continue to spread. We all want to live and that means all of us.
