Parenting in Times of COVID-19, Part 2: My Turn

I woke up to positive news. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good news.

After my daughter tested positive for COVID yesterday, we decided to wear masks around the house to keep me from catching it. I tested negative, but I was pretty sure I was going to test positive eventually. We spent six hours in the car on the way up and back from Pennsylvania, and she was snugly since my wife is out of town for a conference. (I guess my wife is at her own superspreader event?)
