[Ed. – Playing with fire.]
A Plantation [Fla.] mother is urging the public to take precautions after her family contracted COVID-19, leaving her husband fighting for his life at the hospital.
During a Tuesday interview, Michelle Zymet opened up about the mistake her 21-year-old stepson made a few weeks ago when he went to a friend’s house.
“You let your guard down just one time, it’s all it takes,” Zymet said. “You come home, and you infect the entire house.”
While her stepson was wearing a mask, at some point he took it off and brought the virus back home, spreading it to four of his family members. The oldest sibling, 22, does not live at home and tested negative for the virus.
“I pleaded with him every time he left the house, ‘Please wear your mask, take sanitizer, make sure you’re constantly washing your hands,’” Zymet said.
