As people try to gather at events/places in order to return to normalcy from the COVID-19 pandemic, many let their guards down at times when it comes to mask wearing. This may have been the case for Miami legend, Uncle Luke, who wrote in the Miami New Times how when he had COVID, he believes he initially got it at a strip club.
Luke detailed how a friend of his wanted to go to a strip club with him last month. It was the friend’s birthday and he felt a lot of pressure to accept the invite and so, he did accept it. Luke tried to promise himself that he’d only go inside the club for 15 minutes and head out, though.
“Recently, I joined the ranks of the more than 1 million Floridians who’ve caught the coronavirus. Throughout the pandemic, I had been strictly adhering to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, especially wearing a mask whenever I stepped out of my house. Then I gave in to the peer pressure of going out to a party. Last month, a friend celebrating his birthday at a local strip club would not stop blowing up my phone. He kept begging me to come. I told myself I would go in for 15 minutes and duck out.”
Following the celebration at the strip club, Luke said he began to experience a 102-degree fever. He soon visited a hospital where a second PCR test was positive. At the time, Luke didn’t have any breathing issues and was sent home to quarantine for two weeks. Hopefully, he won’t experience any affects of the virus at a later time and continues to mask up wherever he goes.
