We went to dinner last night at my son’s house, especially to see the grandsons ages 7 and 14. I sat next to the older boy during dinner. The boys are tested regularly at their schools, which both are half in-person and half-remote. As we finished dinner, my son opened his email and found a message from the older boy’s school that he had been in class with a student who tested positive.

Consequently, I will be quarantining for two weeks and hoping to dodge this bullet. My lungs are compromised by a previous very serious hospitalization for pulmonary embolism. I will be careful.
