Yesterday I heard from a good friend and client who contracted Covid-19. I thought about it and decided that you might benefit from hearing first hand from someone who is just emerging from a rough two weeks. This person was careful. Caught it anyway.
As they used to say on Dragnet, “the names were changed to protect the innocent.”
“Today is the first day in 9 days that I don’t have a fever. If I had more energy I would be dancing! Here are the symptoms:
Sore throat, splitting headache, extreme eye pain, fever, extreme fatigue, extreme body aches, couldn’t sleep until I remembered I had some sleeping meds (that was a big help for 3 days so I could rest at night, then I could rest without them). It would come in waves, no fever, then 101.8 30 minutes later. The only good news is no respiratory issues.
We had kept the office locked from the public for 3.5 months, but made a mistake by not requiring masks in the office for employees. I thought we were being careful enough with sanitizer and daily cleaning, but that was not the case. We don’t know who, but someone gave us the virus.
Needless to say, we now have a mask policy unless you are at your desk, alone, with your door closed. I don’t like to make the same mistake twice!”
