Quarantine Day 3

Word has gotten around that I'm sick and quarantined, so, after a very rough night battling a cough and congestion, I woke up this morning to a number of friends offering to drop food on my doorstep. So far, I still feel well enough to get things done myself, but I can tell that things are getting a bit worse. My temperature has crept up from 99.7 this morning to 100 this afternoon. 

A theater friend of mine was on Facebook yesterday complaining about allergy symptoms. I urged her to get tested, as my own experience started out with allergy symptoms that temporarily subsided. She's just so busy, you know, and can't afford to take time off of work for a test. And she doesn't fell all that bad. So, she's chalking it up to allergies and isn't going to bother getting tested. This is why infection is so rampant in the United States. Meanwhile, my girlfriend has similar symptoms and  certainly didn't want to have to quarantine for 14 days and miss work, but, then again, she's got a conscience and doesn't want to end up inadvertently killing someone's grandma, so, she got tested and is quarantining. Her results still are not back yet. Neither are her kids' or my daughter's. 

I've been conducting classes online and have been doing live lectures via Zoom and Teams which has been going fine. I've had to dope myself up with generic Sudafed in order keep my congestion at by while I lecture. My headache is more pronounced, even with medication, and I've pulled my contacts out in the hopes that it might cut down on the eyestrain and lessen my headache.
