In a Facebook post, mom Courtney Doster wrote, “COVID19 isn’t a joke. This isn’t time to go out and have play dates, or go to Walmart, or go out to eat. Stay home people please! Nothing worse than your 7-month-old running 104 fever, being poked and prodded over and over, and then being told he’s positive. He has pneumonia which is the most severe form of this virus.”
