Corona virus hits close to home

So scary......I got a message from my small town(less than 9,000 people) earlier today that a town resident has tested positive for the corona virus.

I am immunocompromised (blood cancer) so my 8 year old and I will definitely be in lockdown.

Stay safe! That is scary- especially with your own health status. I'm glad you will be locking down.

I'm sorry; that is scary! Do you have someone, not in your home, able to help you by doing any essential errands (groceries, prescriptions, etc.) and drop off on your porch? Praying you stay healthy!

Yes, luckily I have older children who live nearby and can help me out.

I hope everyone stays healthy and our lives get back to normal soon.
