“I was afraid I would get everyone in my family sick”

During quarantine Erica contracted Covid. She lost her ability to taste and smell. “It was a scary feeling I was afraid I would get everyone in my family sick. It took a couple weeks until I felt better.” I asked her how she felt about going back to school. “I’m scared to go back to school because I’m afraid to get sick again. I want to be able to hang out with my friends again but I would rather not take the risk.” Hopefully vaccines become available to more people like teachers and students so we all feel safe again.
