I just got the news from my son saying he's possibly been exposed to covid. He was going to stop by tomorrow morning to help change the speedo cable on my 53. He says his boss got suddenly sick and is getting a covid test. He spent 45 minutes yesterday working elbow to elbow with him. Looks like the cable change is going to wait a few days. This very scenario is why we're not doing in-person holidays this year.

Hope it was some other bug and he tests negative. The cable can wait. At our age we can’t be too careful.

My daughter and her husband flew up over Memorial Day for a fishing trip. We were all reasonably "social distanced". After they flew back home, they both got sick, my daughter with a long lasting cough, and her husband lost his taste and smell (the test was a bar of soap in the shower). They both subsequently tested negative, but are convinced they had COVID. They said that the flight attendants didn't wear masks on the plane, however they did. They have both fully recovered (as far as they can tell).
Things are much worse now than they were back then, and we're all being careful. Holiday plans are definitely on hold.
Stay safe out there.

Uncle passed away last week from Covid. Hit his head when he fell on Tuesday afternoon. Went to Emergency Room, felt ill Wednesday morning. Thursday morning rushed in and tested. positive results on Friday. Died Tuesday morning at 2am from Covid. Heart stopped. Couldn’t breathe. Doctors think he caught it while waiting in the ER. If we told him he would be dead next Tuesday, he would have laughed. Family devastated. Funeral homes would not take body for preparation. He was 80. Don’t underestimate this thing. Some may skip by and many will have a false sense of security thinking it won’t happen to me. Human nature, I guess.

Back when I was working , on occasion I would drag myself to work when not feeling well

Slight fever, hack. Wanted to save my sick leave to pad my retirement.

I would not dream of going in sick nowadays.

My wife has a coworker who is going into the office sick, runny nose , seal cough, not wearing her mask. She did get tested and was negative. But the concern this is causing the coworkers is alarming.

Most the workers are young. They are concerned about passing something to parents or grand parents

Gov job, so the sick worker has rights. They cannot send her home.. sick worker cubical coworker complained.

...he just got approved to work from home
