Linking to Linda G Hill’s “What Day is it Anyway?” where we’re bonding over a pandemic. 😉
From Linda: “Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.”
Coping with COVID-19 — day 1 — March 20, 2020
Things have been getting odder by the day. Schools are closed, churches have suspended services, medical appointments are being rerouted to “tele appointments” the grocery curb-side pickup has been suspended; in general everybody’s laying low. So are we.
Yesterday started out well, we had a scheduled appointment at the endodontist (root canal specialist) to have Superhubs root canal rework finalized. We were the first appointment of the day nobody else there but staff. The next appointment arrived, signaled through the door and then waited in her car until we left. That’s how the isolation level is here right now. As soon as we left, the staff wiped down the counters, chairs, and presumably everything in the back before they let the next patient in the doors. I really appreciate their efforts.
We stopped at our health food coop for a few remaining supplies. More customers than normal but still there were only 6 people and 1 register worker that I saw. Easy enough to maintain six foot personal space. I about had a panic attack at the cost of a few items but we were determined not to make any additional stops. The tension in the air anywhere people gather is nearly palpable right now.
Superhubs and I are both in very high risk groups for COVID-19 (over 60, autoimmune diseases, chronic lung diseases, diabetes, you name it). With concerns running very high right now, we’ve decided to take our medical team’s advice and just stay home. We’re on a 14-day self-quarantine.
Our office here at the Ranch has closed it’s doors. Mail and package pickup is being accomplished by simply leaving packages outside the office doors and picking up. No human contact actually involved. We have several packages being shipped in the next several days so we’ll see how it goes.
How are you coping?
