Gen Z, TTVS visual

Beaches, parks and streets, including San Marcos’ own Sewell Park, have flooded with Generation Z in recent weeks, and more and more young people have potentially placed themselves and those around them at risk of COVID-19.

It is imperative that young people practice social distancing now more than ever to ensure that they are not placing family members and loved ones at risk—especially the elderly or those with pre-existing health conditions. Gen Z, Take The Virus Seriously highlights messages from prominent global figures calling for social distancing, along with what The University Star’s editorial board members are doing to keep themselves occupied throughout this challenging time period.
