So far about 1/4 of our staff has been able to get tested so far. My test is tomorrow along with 2 other coworkers. I had been thinking that my risk of exposure was pretty minimal, but this afternoon I noticed that every time I climbed the stairs to my office, my chest really hurt and I was short of breath. It could be for any other reason, and I have zero other symptoms, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just a little more anxious now. *Really* hoping for a negative test result tomorrow.
Here's what I don't get about the curfew, and Aron posted something similar on Twitter: if the curfew starts at 10pm and ends at say, 6am or 8am or whenever (I dunno when it would end) - how is that supposed to curb transmission? Most activity happens during the day (work, grocery shopping, banking, misc errands, misc shopping, dining out, etc). So what is the point of a curfew when the majority of people are doing things in daylight hours?
Walked into my office super early this morning to pick up a package, there’s one other chick waiting, no mask. Team leader turns up, “Where’s your mask? They’re mandatory.” Instantly launches into a saga about how she can’t possibly wear one because she’s SPECIAL AND UNIQUE and so on. This is a chick who cries when the computer doesn’t do what she wants it to and throws a teary tantrum if there’s no milk left in the tea room fridge, so of course asking her to wear a mask was going to be a massive drama. So glad I don’t have to work in the office at the moment, and I feel sorry for all those bosses who are going to have to deal with that one snowflake who thinks they’re the exception to the mandatory mask rule.
Also, these ducks live in the city and they’re waiting around because the owners of the cafe they’re in front of put water and food out for them, but the cafe is closed for at least 6 days, so no one is coming to feed them. :-(
