Re: personal experience
Greetings from Oregon. On Friday the governor announced a new initiative for the state called Stay Safe, Stay at Home. she made it clear that it is not a "lock down". Essential businesses will still be open and people will be allowed to come and go as necessary to maintain their homes and livestock. However construction, retail other than "essential" and other business that cannot be done online is to be suspended for the coming weeks. people will be able to go for walks and other outside activities but encouraged to maintain a 6 foot distance and gatherings of 10 or more are strongly discouraged. On the surface things carry on as normal but when one interacts with random people in public many are scared, uncertain and in a state of disbelief. I have been doing my best to prepare my family for total quarantine if necessary even though there are only 2 reported cases in my county. The sun comes up and goes down the same as always and we do our best to take each day as it comes and give thanks, how ever there is a constant sense of a quit un ease and a certain foreboding. I have longtime friends in Washington state who have come down with the Bug. My friend Tommy works in a warehouse and his co-worker came down with a fever after spending time with his daughter for the weekend. He told Tommy that he was feeling feverish with chills and that he was going to call in sick the next day. Two days later Tommy's entire department, 14 people where all feverish and had varying flue like symptoms. His co-worker found out that there was an outbreak in Kirkland where his daughter lives and decided to get tested. He was diagnosed withe cove-19 as were 8 out of the fourteen people in his unit. Tommy had a fever and a slight cough for a few days but that was all. The doctor told him to assume that he had it and to self quarantine for 14 days and not to go to the hospital unless his symptoms were life threatening. Tommy's mom is my age [late forties], and she now has pneumonia but is fighting it at home at last report. Up until I spoke with Tommy the whole thing just seemed like some distant vague possibility that was happening somewhere else. After he shared his experience with me it suddenly became real. It goes to show how quickly this virus can spread and that for many it is little more than a bad cold but for others it can be life threatening. It can take up to 14 days to germinate and as few as four or five. Many people will be asymptomatic while others will be hospitalized or in serious peril. Please be safe, enjoy life in the moment and take whatever precautions you feel are necessary. As a wise man once said have faith in the creator but tie up your horses.
