It’s that time of year where festivities usually are in full swing and plans for Christmas and New Years are being set, and I am saying no to all of it.
I work at an ENT office as a medical assistant/scribe and as such we are pretty high on the list of exposure because most people we see have symptoms COVID can cause and we work in the area of the nose that houses the virus. Being that I’m in the rooms while scopes and the like are being done I don’t feel comfortable attending family events because I don’t want to risk getting my family sick if I am asymptomatic, or contracting from them if they happen to be positive.
I’m not going to lie it’s hard though. December is a rough month emotionally all ready with the passing of my mom on the 23rd and family really helps. The potential risk is too scary though. My family is large and a lot of them older so why risk it?
Here’s to a holiday of love from afar and lots of virtual chats.
