As of this evening, I shall already have been off work for a week. Our plans for a deep clean of the club are now on hold.
We have been asked if any of us want to help the council by going into the community as carers. I have said no. Call me selfish but I have wiped enough bums recently and welcome the break from it.
Two of Clive's nieces have symptoms. One works in a hospital and has been tested positive. The other is a carer so not tested but probably has the virus. Both are young fit women and will be fine.
I'm 60 next year and will not put myself at risk. I was, after all, hospitalised on holiday in Cyprus with a respiratory infection a couple of years ago.
We are looking out for several neighbours.
In the meantime, it's icecream in the garden.
