Might not be a bad idea to try to stay in for a few more weeks, until we get passed peak, and then reconsider. I'm 55. I have COPD and asthma. The last couple times I got the flu, I got pneumonia. Things will be tight financially, but I would almost certainly not get the virus. I don't know what to do. But, I have to figure it out today, anyway.
And...I'm out. Can't do it. I texted my boss and told him I'm out until we get passed the peak of the pandemic. I'll still have to go into the store in a few days to drop off my keys and to print out copies of my paystubs, as there's a tiny chance I'll be eligible of unemployment. Anyway, the die is cast. I have some money in the bank. I guess we'll see what happens.
