Dispatches from the Pandemic – Day 5

Still here. Still at home. Still Corona-free. We did venture out to the grocery store mid afternoon. I don’t know what it’s like in other states, but Seattleites are in general rule followers. There was a line to get in. Everyone automatically spaced themselves 6 feet behind the person in front of them. The store employees wiped the carts off and let people in one at a time as other people exited as if it were some highly popular nightclub. I wore gloves. Not because I was afraid of getting germs on them…but because they are my reminder to not touch my face. Two weeks ago going out in public with bright blue nitrile gloves would have earned me some really odd looks. Today no one even noticed, they were too busy trying to shop and stay away from the other shoppers.
