I came home today to find my wife wearing a mask. She works in a couple different health care settings. I remember a couple days ago, she was telling me about a coworker, who looked ill when he came to work. She shooed him away from her, and told him to go home, or if not, at least put on a mask. My wife has been rigid from the beginning in wearing a mask at work, even when her bosses told her it was not necessary. The coworker is on a ventilator today, and my wife is wearing her mask at home, and taking her temperature twice a day. Our kitchen and living room smell like bleach.
557 new cases in the Connecticut today, including 16 deaths, the state’s death total now is 69 lives struck down by COVID-19.
I’m back working the ambulance tomorrow. I will have my surgical mask on all day.
