Are you taking similar or different precautions during COVID-19?
A common comment I’ve been receiving lately: “Alyssa, you’ve been a pro at this quarantine thing for your entire life.”
Yes, to an extent, they’re right. The precautions I take every winter are similar to what the world is experiencing right now. I don’t usually leave my house from January to March. I practice social distancing. And I’m extra cautious of hand-washing and cleanliness.
That being said, we’ve gone one step further in this pandemic. My family and I are now completely isolated. We have suspended caregiving services and have all but bolted our doors shut. It’s different, unlike anything I have ever imagined. So, this is, in a way, new territory for me too.
How do your typical germ-related precautions measure up to what you’re doing today? Is it the same or different?
