My story of the quarantine is my job situation. I wasn’t sure whether or not I would be able to go to work for a long time after all the stay-at-home orders were sent out. It wasn’t a long time until my job was declared as “essential” because I have to help the very busy pharmacy I work in keep up with the new demand. Going to work was very scary because I have some health issues as it is and I have to interact with people, so I constantly used sanitizer, gloves, multiple masks, etc. I still do all these things but because I am so used to it and to protect myself as well as other people. Working in a medical field in this time has been exhausting and will be even harder as flu season approaches as I will have to apply vaccines. I hope one day I will be able to give the COVID-19 vaccine as part of my job and help to others.
