I would say my exposure to COVID-19 (informational, not biological haha) started on the trip to Japan for my honeymoon.
On the plane ride to Tokyo, I think I wore an N95 mask for most of the whole flight. This wasn’t at all comfortable and made some noticeable marks on my nose.
When I returned home, I converted to wearing cloth masks, and eventually no mask at all (shame!).
Initially, I got worried that we, as a society, would collapse into some sort of apocolyptic scenario where the grocery stores are empty and you can’t ever go outside. Thanks mass-media.
Fortunately for everyone, that hasn’t happened. The only real victim here is the economy and the 35+ million people that are out of job now. Holy crap!
One thing that came of this is my wife and I are even more prepared now than we have been.
We have a ton of hand soap, lots of canned foods, and we already had a 1-2 month supply of toilet paper since I always buy in bulk regardless.
