One week later, on Friday the 13th, Glynn woke up at 5 a.m. with a severe headache – an unusual occurrence for someone who doesn’t typically experience them.
By the time she arrived home in Georgetown the following day, Glynn was concerned about going back to her job at an assisted living facility. Though her own symptoms, including headache, congestion and sore throat, were mild, she didn’t want to take a chance of infecting the facility’s residents, who would be considered at high risk of complications from the coronavirus.
“I didn’t want to bring it into a building where everyone is vulnerable,” she says. “For me to go back to work and act like I was fine, that was not something I could do.”
