My Boyfriends mom didn’t tell us she was sick… (Covid-19 anxiety)
Recently I just came back from School for spring break given that practically every college has shut down and alternately moved to online learning. I arrived back home at the middle of last week during the midst of the covid-19 outbreak in the U.S.. During this time I was visiting my boyfriend quite a bit and a majority of the time being at his house and staying there (all while disinfecting things we touch and making sure to wash our hands).Today I received a call from him regarding his mom loosing some of her senses (taste and smell) and that she had started realizing these symptoms 3 days ago. I had been over at their house during this time. Today the New York Times released that a loss of senses is now a symptom of covid-19! Throughout all of this doctors have informed the public that if you are experiencing any signs of sickness such as a cough, sneezing ect that you should self quarantine and let others know that you have been in contact with. With this in mind I’m extremely frustrated because his mom knew that she was feeling under the weather despite knowing that it was a covid-19 symptom and she continued to be around other people freely WITHOUT letting anyone know until today!!! What makes things worse is that when my boyfriend first asked her if she might have been feeling under the weather she stated no, her husband told my boyfriend that she has had a cold during the last week. I don’t know how to feel about this, regardless I’m feeling anxious given that I have been around my boyfriend and he had no clue that she was sick.
