This Thanksgiving was like no other in the Faykus family. I’m sure some of your gatherings looked a little bit different, too. No aunts, uncles or cousins were seen this year for me. In fact, I really only got to see my family through the windows of my grandma’s house this year because a week prior, I tested positive for COVID-19.
You may be thinking, “Wow, Alyssa writes so many columns on wearing masks and still got COVID. How?” While I do wear my mask as much as possible, there was one place I didn’t wear it as religiously: the office, which is where I picked it up. So just to clarify, wearing a mask works. There is no safe place when it comes to COVID-19.
