Day one of my attempt at social distancing. Anxiety levels are still high but I don’t know of any local virus infections yet. It does feel like the quiet before the storm though.
I was still at work yesterday but spoke to my coordinator about my concerns and he admitted I had a case for staying away. I phoned in today saying I was going to be off for the immediate future. Special new rules were introduced by my employers with regards to special leave and the fact that I’ve had a cough for a few weeks should make me eligible for full sick payment.
