Holy S***! Guess we are....

going to have to self quarantine now for 14 days! DS1 is a classification officer at the state prison here in our area. Today 87 inmates tested positive, and 3 staff who have been tested on their own, are positive as well. DS is going to get tested tomorrow at a facility. That means our DDIL could obviously be effected too. And, DS2 and his wife, who live on the street behind us....she is the mental health specialist at the county jail! They have not been tested yet, but they have a much more transient prison population than the state prison. She is going to ask about inmate testing tomorrow. DH goes into their home several times a week to tend to the dogs...so, it just got real friends! Scared right now is an understatement! We are both over 60.

Nancy

I'm sorry, that must be scary. Praying that none of you in your family get it, and for the recovery of those inmates and staff who have got it.

Quarantine

Yep...sounds about right. I sincerely hope your children stay safe. May I suggest the first thing you do is air out your house, wipe down all door knobs, toilet handles and light switches.

It will make you feel better. Then find something you really like to keep yourself amused. The first week is sort of a novelty. Here in California, weíve been SIP since Mid-March. DH and I have been quarantined with youngest DD since early March. Getting twitchy now.

It is smart to self quarantine in case your kids test positive. You can do it. It doesnít mean you will catch it even if they test positive. Youíre a teacher- you wash your hands- a lot.

Update us when you can- we love you!

I'm glad you are quarantining and I am wishing you good health. It's very likely you and your dh won't get it, but I'm so glad you are doing the right thing. I'm hoping your children stay safe and healthy as well.

Sending prayers your way.
Hope you find things to do to keep busy.
Doing hands on jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, exercise time, learning time, etc may help.
Hope the time goes by quickly for you!
Keep us posted!

Here in Kansas, weíve been under a SAH order since about March 17. We did have to leave to take MIL home in another state, but we sheltered at her home while we were there. I havenít left my house except to get groceries since March 19. Iíve gotten a lot done. Of course, I donít have the worry of having been exposed. That would be harder to take.

Iíd call your doctor for a plan. You are healthy. Take vitamins. Make a plan with your dh if you or him do get it. That is what we did. Text us. Text me. Pray. We love you. There really isnít more you can do.

How nerve wracking for you! But you are doing the right thing. Fingers crossed that none of you do test positive.
