Wear your mask
I feel like a good percentage of people on this board do take COVID seriously and do wear masks based on what I have been reading the last few months. I just want to stress the importance of wearing masks especially the right masks this morning because of what is currently going on in my family.
My uncle who is a germaphobe and has been taking COVID very seriously went to a work meeting last week with 6 other men and because none of them were wearing their mask, he decided to not wear his too. Guess what? 6 of the 7 men in this meeting now tested positive for COVID. I literally want to drive to NJ and shake my uncle so hard because he is the type that if you're sick in general he makes sure everything is wiped down in the home, his cars, etc. he is not about germs at all. Well my mom's birthday was last week so my uncle, his wife, their two kids, and my grandparents went to my parents' house to celebrate and now my Dad has COVID and 3 other family members are showing symptoms and got tested yesterday, awaiting results. I don't know if anyone saw my blog earlier in the week about my cousin's gf getting COVID from now wearing a mask and gave it to my cousin too.
Wearing a mask is SO important especially as numbers are starting to surge again. Meanwhile, if I get COVID this weekend, I am to blame because we will be seeing my cousin and his gf that just got over COVID 3 weeks ago at my aunt's for the weekend. I am really not happy they will be there because they don't take COVID seriously and don't wear masks. We will not be hugging them or sharing tight spaces with them, but we will be seeing them so we are taking a risk. We will not be seeing our friends expecting a baby until 3 weeks have passed after exposing ourselves this weekend because we don't want to risk them at all.
Needless to say my parents and brother were supposed to come down this weekend to see my dad's family, but they will not be in attendance. At least they found out all this before coming, but I will miss seeing them
Everyone stay safe please!
