Avoiding The Virus

Carmine Capobianco is a columnist at The Waterbury Observer and the author of the book, "Tall and Short Tales of My Hometown", based on growing up in Waterbury.  Carmine wrote this piece about being quarantined at home during the pandemic:

I was the first person sent home to do my work. I’m on chemotherapy so my white cells dropped. I also have diabetes. So, if I get the Coronavirus, I’m a goner. That’s it. Done.

So I went home and my bosses have been great. Probably because they don’t want it to kill me.
