COVID-19 risks loom as young adults re-enter public life


Leila Navidi - Star Tribune

Young people enjoyed the beach at Lake Nokomis on Wednesday, a hot summer day.

Nina Cecere's social media feed is full of friends going to parties, drinking and enjoying the summer weather in public - even as the COVID-19 pandemic rolls into its fourth month and counting.

Cecere, a 24-year-old teacher from Minneapolis, said she wishes she could go out with her friends, but she's concerned that gathering indoors or in large groups may not be safe. She's only meeting friends outdoors for takeout at 6-foot intervals, though she knows many friends are going to barbecues and beaches and clinking their glasses at rooftop bars.

"It's so concerning," Cecere said. "It's not a lesser threat than it was two months ago."
