Day 89

Shelter in Place Day 89
Sorry, it’s late, it’s been a long day.

It’s too soon to open up. I can’t breathe in that mask either, but I’m not willing to die because someone around me can’t be bothered to wear one or only wear it below their nose. I have to go out, so I try to do it once a week. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. I’ll repeat it again and again because apparently it’s not being heard.

Going back to work, I know we all want to. But, most of my job duties take place in offices where the circulation is poor. I remember in our old building, everyone in deployment getting sick at the same time because we’re all breathing the same air. A cold, the flu is one thing. But Covid19 isn’t something I’m willing to risk sitting in a literal hallway, where everyone has to walk past you to use the restroom just frightens me.

Sharing the computer, if I’m closing that the opening person used. Sitting across the walkway from a manager’s office, where people sit and chat. Sharing a break room that’s small and has a little social distancing, until everyone is at lunch at the same time.

I’ve heard that even though the OC has said masks aren’t mandatory, they will be at my job. But still, there are so many things that could go wrong, I’m not looking forward to it. I might have to sit out the first part of the job. With my health where it’s at right now, I can’t make the decision to go back to work this soon.

And California is seeing an increase in cases. Check out this link. Cases are increasing in California. I read an article, I think I posted it even, that said that we’re not in the second wave, because we’re not even out of the first wave.

I know we’re bored, I know we’re tired of baking, I know we’re tired of sitting around. But, that does not mean that we can just remove our masks and go shopping, go to the movies, go to the gym. We need to be vigilant. We need to take care of ourselves. Please take care of yourself.

For me, I’ll continue wearing my mask.

Do you think it’s too early?
