Strip by: Redgreen

Jon: I dreamed you had COVID-19. Scary, huh?
Liz: What if I do?
{Liz's response leaves Jon bewildered}
{Jon hurriedly exits panel left, away from Liz}
Liz: Jon?

The author writes:

Like many of the active contributors here, I am well aware of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the world's response to the spread of the pathogen behind it. I decided to edit an extremely new strip (by SRoMG standards) to make it about the virus, removing Garfield because he was irrelevant to the exchange I thought up before I started working on it.

I can see more people submitting pandemic-themed comics to SRoMG, which could involve matters like panic-buying, toilet paper, panic-buying toilet paper, etc., etc. Maybe they could be shoved into the Specials page or a separate COVID-19 page or a stickied topic in the IWC Forums' Square Root of Minus Garfield section! Oh, also, stay safe, stay at home, don't touch your face, and don't forget to wash your hands!

Original strip: 2020-04-03.
