Try as we might, we’ve not been able to avoid the Covid thing any longer.
Despite all our best efforts for the last 19-or-so months with distancing, wearing of masks, vaccinations, jabs, boosters, etc, as well as staying away from family and friends, not going to the cinema, restaurants, large gatherings, etc, it seemed it’s our turn for Covid to find us.
Predictably it found us through my kids and their school. My eldest (12yo) has continued to wear masks at school, and he’s the only one in his classes since they returned after the summer. He’s been strong and determined, has suffered the snide comments from his peers and mixed messages from the teachers (some relaxed about him wearing the masks, some actively saying he’s not allowed to wear them) but he was the first at the weekend to have some symptoms. His PCR result came back last night as positive.
