I suddenly find myself in a little hotspot, unfortunately. Early on, in March, a co-worker in my department got the virus and passed away, and no one knew where she got it. Nobody else around her was affected, and that town where I work has had very few cases. The little town that I live closest to, a population of 7500, has suddenly sprouted 45 cases and growing every day this past week, which doesn't surprise me due to its population base of Mexican Mennonites and Amish, many of whom don't even speak English so not sure if they are really getting the news, and one of the churches in the area has refused to stop holding services. I haven't been in that little town for a few weeks, and will definitely stay out of it for the time being. The town where I work, a population of 15,000 has, I think, 9 cases currently. The surrounding counties have all implemented mandatory masks in enclosed, public areas within the past few days. It becomes official tomorrow. I have been wearing one to work until I get into my office - I'm locked in behind 2 doors and by myself.
So that's my story at the moment. My husband has been locked down in a hotel in Ohio this week as his truck broke down there. I don' t know what the situation is in that area, afraid to look!
