Think you'll be okay?

I have enough money saved to live for more than 1.5 years. I have enough seniority to be in a second round of layoffs; Unemployment in this state at my rate would actually have me be able to save money on unemployment cheques.

Good luck and keep up updated on your progress.

You might even want to start a new thread that gives the timeline of your experience so that others who might contract the virus will know what to expect. Because, as you're probably aware, the news cycle is COVID 19 24/7, so might was well give us "a day in the life of a COVID 19 Trucker."

Ty sir im sick but im fine i by no means am tryin to enhance the fear i will update as it either pro or regresses so far its very much like the 2 other times ive had the flu the fear of it seems to be the unknown as its brand new virus structured very different from its predecessors and its known ability to trznsfer easily even from a nonsymptomatic person which id say is probably the most fearful part Stay safe out there everyone

I hope you feel better soon!

The 2 biggest things I've heard with it are how easily it transfers to another person and the long infection it can cause especially in the elderly. I've had a long infection before and it is not something to be taken lightly, nothing like walking 20 feet and being so winded you have to sit down and gasp for air.
