    17 Pictures That Show Just How Well "Social Distancing" Has Been Working In Texas

    It's not going great, y'all.

    1. Texas — my beloved home state — we need to talk...

    cdc: we recommend not going in crowds larger than 10 people everyone in texas:

    2. ...because I know that March is a time for spring break. For festivals! For FUN. But y'all, the coronavirus is no joke.

    It wasn't just Florida evidently South Padre Island kept the party going 🙄

    3. Texans, if you don't already know, the CDC says the virus is spread between people who are in close contact with one another.

    @KXAN_News Good luck with that this was taken yesterday at Zilker park and there were way more people than the 20 or so playing soccer and what about construction sites???

    THAT MEANS NO SPORTS, PEOPLE!!!!!

    4. This is not 6 feet apart! This is not social distancing!

    5. *DEEP INHALE* JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T THINK YOU'RE A CARRIER OF THIS VIRUS DOESN'T MEAN YOU AREN'T!!!!! Symptoms don't show right away.

    @GovAbbott They’ll be having more patients with this going on. Port A

    You can carry the coronovirus with no symptoms for 2–14 days after exposure!!!!!!!!!! Just because you're young and healthy doesn't mean you can't get very sick.

    6. And you there? Touching that shopping cart? Let me tell you that researchers found that this virus can survive UP TO THREE DAYS on plastic and stainless steel.

    About to risk it all for some eggs... #nosocialdistancing #heb

    7. So, like, you absolutely should not be doin' stuff like this:

    Been an interesting visit to Port Aransas. #SNU

    8. OR THIS:

    South Padre Island in South Texas still going on with Spring Break festivities. No #SocialDistancing here. #coronavirus

    9. OR THIS!!!!!!!

    @markmobility @joncoopertweets @RonDeSantisFL @kinsa @JJohnsonLaw Spring break in Port Aransas, TX. I live on this beach. 😱😱

    10. Your park time can wait, I promise you.

    11. The parties can be postponed for another time.

    Last Friday: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declares a state of emergency. Last Sunday: Spring Break at South Padre Island on the southern coast of Texas.

    12. Who wants to be sitting in this kind of traffic anyway? NOT YOU, THAT'S FOR SURE!

    A view of spring break in Port Aransas, Texas. Now.

    13. Y'all can have your beaches once this is over.

    14. I promise, they will still be there.

    15. So, please, let's all just social-distance the way we're MEANT to...

    16. ...and stay inside.

    And thank you :)
