As an elderly woman, I so identified with “‘Living in a cocoon’: As coronavirus pandemic grows longer, experts fear isolation’s impact on Baltimore-area seniors” (Nov. 17). My husband is in an assisted living facility in Kensington, while I’m in Baltimore. To see him, I must make an appointment and when we meet, we are to stay 6 feet apart — no touching, no hugging whatsoever. Then when the hour’s up, I’m scooted away by a staff member.

However, The Sun is creating COVID-19 overload. Every morning, I’m assaulted with examples like “Coronavirus hospitalizations climb” and “Home with no cheer.” Enough already!

Everyone understands we’re living in a pandemic, so there’s no point reinforcing it. We’re taking precautions, yet this monster is surging again. Because of COVID-19 overload, I no longer watch TV news and avoid most internet news platforms.

I’m not alone. Many people I know share my view. But they aren’t writing letters or calling your city desk. Unless you have some good news to report, please spare us additional, depressing information. Thank you.
