I live in New York State, the state with the most positive cases in the US. There are have been two confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in our sleepy little village already. Those two people may have transmitted the virus to more people unwittingly. Prior to this point the county health Department was saying no confirmed cases in the county, what they were adding as an afterthought was that there was no testing being done in the county. Uh what? So the virus has probably been here before this, but no one was tested... so no confirmed cases. This worries me. My dad will probably insist on going out to do his own grocery shopping tomorrow. That worries me. My dad and I belong to what they are calling the vulnerable population, due to age or underlying conditions. I don’t want to get sick, because the chance I could die are higher than those who are basically healthier to start with. And I don’t want my dad to get sick either. Social distancing is so important. Please take this seriously! I know many of you are and I applaud your efforts.
On the food and exercise level I am doing okay. Most days it is difficult to eat enough, as the stress is stealing my appetite. But I am getting in exercise. Not intense cardio, but sustained intentional movement anyways.
A number of authors I follow are giving away the ebook copies of at least a couple of their books, or have put them on drastically reduced pricing. This makes me happy, and I have been loading up my kindle. At least I won’t run out of books to read!
