WE LITERALLY THOUGHT THAT WE BOTH HAD CONTRACTED COVID19, and believe you me, for a minute it felt like the end of the world, BUT we were smart enough to take preventive measures even if it was just a scare.

I’m sure a lot of you have been or are going through this right now, and so did we. It wasn’t easy for sure, however we took some steps that helped us get through this predicament that we were in considering everything that’s been going on around us.

Also, we didn’t want to take any chances, so we did these 6 things to be sure whether we both had #covid19 or not.

IMMEDIATELY ISOLATED OURSELVES

Even though my partner and I were isolated in our home, once we felt the scare due to the flu and feverish chills, we holed up in separate rooms and maintained 2 meter distance from each other and talked each other through what we were feeling.

WE WORE MASKS &  GLOVES

Due to the fright we wore masks and gloves inside our house since we share the space, therefore we had to touch things like door knobs and cabinets, so for each others safety we wore gloves as well.

DISINFECTED & SEPARATED OUR UTENSILS

From glasses and mugs, to blankets and cutlery, we literally disinfected and wipe everything clean that we both would touch and time our movements in to and from the kitchen, and kept everything separate.

Make your own disinfectant at home with:

  • 250 ml water
  • 50 ml bleach
  • 50 ml Dettol

STAYED CONNECTED WITH FAMILY

All the time we were in that situation, we stayed more than just connected with our family. We were video calling, and constantly in touch to talk to each other about how everything was since it was a new change for all of us and in case we needed emergency help, they’d know.

MONITORED OUR SYMPTOMS

We were constantly monitoring our symptoms from a mere sneeze to a cough just to be sure what we were dealing it. And I will honestly admit that at times the scare felt all the more real especially with hourly news updates, so we were analyzing our situation so we could take the right measures.

WE STAYED POSITIVE

To be honest, it was a tough time staying positive, but our faith kept us strong and the fact that we were updating ourselves with the amount of knowledge from the right sources that helped us fight our scare. Giving up was not an option.
