Brief covid thread:

Because of a possible exposure (I was negative when tested) I had two weeks off of work and isolated.
I went back to work for 5 hours. Then someone in my household tested positive after I had gotten home.
Two weeks off again. Again,I have been isolating as best as possible. wear a mask when I am upstairs, where the person's room is, and have mostly been hanging in my room which is fine.
Now, with a few days left of Isolation 2, Another person in my house realized they have no sense of smell today.
Both in their 60s.
I am isolating as best as possible and have no symptoms but, my nerves and anxiety are falling the Fuck apart.
I work in fast food/restaurant. They want me back in a few days and I am so Fucking nervous to go back mostly for fear of carrying this.
I currently cannot get tested because things are too booked up. The person without smell cannot get a test because of how booked they are.
This is a Fucking joke. After months, why isn't rapid testing available? Why is this getting worse? Why are masks still political?
Why does Utah still have dine-in available? Why don't things shut down again before everything gets worse?
I just cannot believe this. I am so tired of this. I am so tired of seeing headlines begging people to stay home for this holiday.
You do not need to see your family. Zoom, call, FaceTime, stand outside and wave.
I cannot believe that this is the country that 6o years ago was the place to come and be free and safe. This is absolute bullshit and I am losing my goddamn mind.
Anyway, Fuck everyone for not taking this seriously. Fuck the government for doing nothing. Fuck @GovHerbert for his shitty handling of this and for deciding to do nothing but suck Trump off. Fuck @SenatorRomney for being spineless and a shitty senator.
I wish I could say I was sorry for this post but I am not. I am exhausted.

I fully doubt anyone will read all of this. If you do, thank you for listening.
One last thing (I keep swearing the post before will be it)

This is NOT a unique situation. I really wish it was.

It's not.

I am lucky that I am not grieving, sick, or dead. Too many people don't have that luck.

Wear a Mask when you HAVE to be out. Stay home otherwise.
