This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I feel OK, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.

It sucks. Looks, this is serious. Now’s the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands.”
