Dealing with Covid at work has been the worst thing that has happened to me. I was at work and had just found out that one of my close co-workers had tested positive for Covid. I was shock. Everyone at my job was scared but in honest truth I was just relax because I knew I didn't have it. Thought wrong. A week after I started to feel a little light headed but I figured it was normal. I had went to go get tested just in case and believe it or not my test came back Positive as well.

Use tags (separated by commas) to describe your story or documents. For example: Does it relate to a particular neighborhood? Does it relate to a particular aspect of the pandemic?

The minute I found out I tested positive I started to freak out. I didn't understand why I tested positive to be really honest due to the fact I didn't feel sick at all. I had to quarantine and honest truth I hated it. I wasn't allowed to go anywhere. After two weeks of quarantine I went to get tested again. Once I got my results I was relived because I tested back negative. This relates to a particular aspect of the pandemic because I actually caught it. I thought I was really the one to catch it because I wear my mask and take percussion but I did. Not everyone gets the same reaction.
