These days shall pass

The Coronavirus has had an impact on my life. It has changed the way we do thing on a daily basis. I lost a family member due to the virus and I have another family member in the hospital on ICU. The I was unable to attend the funeral because of the limited number of people allowed to be there. I was sad because I wanted to be there to show my support. Many people are walking around with the virus and may not know it. It’s challenging for folks in my community to get tested because there are no testing sites here. We have to travel to west Delray and the lines are usually long. There is a lot going on and people are making efforts to help each other but we as people have to take this virus serious because it is no joke.
