How many people do you know that have had COVID?

Post by The Butcher » Thu Oct 08, 2020 12:00 pm

This week there have been 4 more positive COVID cases at my place of work. I remember when people were questioning the severity of COVID because they didn't know anyone that had the virus. I am curious if now people are seeing more cases or not.

I didn't add to the survey, but I am curious about this too:
How many people know someone who has died from COVID?
I personally don't know anyone, but my mother-in-law knows 2 people, brother-in-law knows 1 person, our neighbor knows 1 person, and a teacher friend knows another teacher that passed away this week.

I don't know one that has died.

The ones I know that had the virus were all from our Church. This all happened in the past month. Only one had a case that might be considered bad. And he may have had an issue; cancer survivor, no spleen and he smokes a pipe. But everyone has recovered now.

On a personal level- I know only 6 people (*edit- family we know well in Livingston has it).
On a professional/work level- over 20.
I do not work for a school district.

I do know that I had two more employees that had false positives. This brings my total to 5 since this thing started. Not a ton obviously, but it can be crushing to a business. Covering shifts, doing a schedule several times, testing close contacts, and adjusting hours to try and do the right thing and then learn they weren't in fact positive is so draining.

Then there are the people who have symptoms, tested , but they still recommend not working for 7-10 days "just to be safe". I don't know how many businesses are going to be able to survive honestly.

We are in the same boat. The weird thing too is that usually we have multiple applications for hiring but right now we have very few. Tough times for sure.

How long has your family been in Livingston?

I don't have family in Livingston. They are family friends.
Also, a close friend of mine lost a high school buddy Monday to COVID. He was 38 years old, married and has 2 children. COIVD is serious.

That sucks. That age only consists of less than 2% of Covid deaths but it does happen occasionally and is terrible just the same. :(

I agree, it is terrible - and although I don't know of any cases where relatively young people died from this that didn't have underlying conditions... it's still tragic to see a life cut short.


Great time to be a BOBCAT!
