Remember how I said yesterday that people get “lulled” into a sense of security and then allow themselves to let their guard down? Here’s why I am still so cautious: I had COVID-19, and these are the things nobody tells you.
“In my social circles, I was considered among the least likely person to contract the disease because, basically, I abandoned the circles. I wore a mask everywhere. I followed all the rules, but a couple of weeks ago I didn’t follow my instincts. I briefly let my guard down. The coronavirus came out swinging.
The weekend before my symptoms appeared, for the first time in four months, I met friends for two dinners at two socially distanced patio tables. Nobody is required to wear masks at the tables, so I removed my mask when I sat, as did my dining partners, and we left them off during the entire time we were at the table.
I didn’t do anything that was prohibited, right? I was just following the rules, right? My guess is that I caught it there.”
