Isolation day 1
Well I had a bit of a cough yesterday so this morning called the boss for advice as I was by this point coughing up a lung every 5 minutes of course I am now in self isolation with no hope of attending my training next week, which wont go ahead anyway no doubt.
I don't actually have coronavirus, I don't have a temperature and I am in no way sick but we obviously cant take the chance of me going out and seeing people who are sick and vulnerable. So now I am stuck in the house for what now looks like 14 days according to today's advice.
Day 1 of isolation is not too bad, I am fortunate that I can work from home to some extent not doing my exact same job of course but I can do some work and the company are happy with that so I am not actually marked absent.
What worries me is if this turns into 3 months isolation (my job is going to be fully home based for 3 months minimum now) because I have been housebound for 11 weeks before when I had my injury and I was bored out of my mind. I already work from home but I go out and visit people in the mornings so I have a good balance in my job until now.
Wish me luck for the next 13 days.
