The worry escalated for me yesterday when I was at work. The rumors were circulating about one of the other tenants in our building. Apparently we have had a case of the corona virus identified in our building. According to the rumors it was two floors below me....but we share the elevators...the lobby and the parking garage. Now in fairness, these are rumors and one rumor stated it was only a person that had direct contact with an infected person. But I will say this the rumors came from a pretty solid source AND the other floors had virtually no one working! The building and parking garage were empty (except for the floors my employer rents because we were fully staffed).
I have called my mother and I have told her that she probably won’t see my face for quite a while. I’m not risking taking this to her. She is older and has some health concerns. (Diabetes, high blood pressure, etc). So I will just keep calling her. (My brother lives across the street but I will drop stuff off if they need me to....but I will wave through the windows...because I have come a lot closer to this virus that I want my mother to come). So there is some real concern there about my health and the health of my loved ones.
