Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that spreads from person to person. People at higher risk: Elderly, people with underlying diseases, and people who have been in contact with people who have had covid-19. This virus spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets from an infected person.
Some symptoms may include but aren't limited to: fever, tiredness and dry cough. On average it takes about a week to show symptoms but these symptoms may take up to two weeks to appear. I am here to entertain what to do while at home during this quarantine. Like I said before I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice if you think you have COVID-19 or are showing symptoms you should call your primary care doctor for advice on what to do next.
Early march I realized that this virus was starting to become more than just a small problem. It was spreading fast and aggressively. I work at a refurbished computer store and most of our retail items or parts came from overseas. At one point we couldn't get any more stock and began to look empty. Then we got a surge and found local suppliers for most of the stuff we were missing. After the work from home order was put in place we were selling everything. Right as a monitor came in the store we didn't even have enough time to tag it, and it was sold. At that point it was hard to keep things stocked not due to shipment but due to how fast it was being bought up. And then I got a sinus infection and was sent home for two weeks by doctors orders just to make sure that I wasn't exposed.
That brings us to now. I’m back at work with tons of restrictions. I only work 2-3 days a week and sales are slow. I can feel customers getting restless. We have been refusing service to people without masks and been yelled at because of it. We all just need to keep in mind it won’t be like this forever and just be patient.
