I thought I should write a blog post about this so that in the future, I can remember what we went through. As of today, the statistics are:
As of today the situation in California is that Governor Newsom has asked all residents of the state to self-quarantine. All non-essential businesses are closed. Restaurants serve takeout only. Gatherings of 10 or more people are banned. Churches have been ordered closed, however, they are streaming their services.
I am incredibly blessed to be working at hospital which is the quintessential essential business. We will not be closing any time soon. God has provide us with shelter, health (so far) and I am working, unlike a lot of my neighbors. It’s a little eery not hearing traffic noise. The slowdowns on the freeways are gone.
I have taken today off as it was scheduled far in advance. I expect this to be the last day off I will get until this pandemic is over. We booked the weekend at an RV resort about 3 hours away from where we live. It’s beautiful and peaceful here. We can use it.
I’m incredibly grateful to God for all He has done for me. We are praying for the world daily. Remember to stay safe:
Wear gloves when possible
Wash your hands frequently
Clean all surfaces periodically
Clean your computer keyboard and mouse
Clean your cell phone
God’s grace and peace to you.
