Day 5 of "self-isolation" on BLM and NF lands

Recommended Posts

Pics of our last five days in our "quarantine" blog.  We're near Williams AZ.  Still a bit chilly above 7,000ft but the NH and HDT are holding up very well but a little muddy with this red dirt!!.

I just retired a week ago.  So, after 2 weeks of the self-isolating, we'll be able to visit our youngest daughter, in Colorado.  She is 8 months pregnant with our second grand-daughter.

Hope all are weathering the Coronavirus well!

Congratulations on your new grandson!

I think a two week window of "self isolation", ESPECIALLY with a new baby and a mother who will recently have gone through childbirth, is NOT NEARLY enough of a safety margin. At a minimum, check with the MD who is caring for the new mother & baby and ask THEIR opinion on what THEY think is a prudent time period.

Yep, the two-week isolation is BOTH for her and the baby's sake, plus ours.  She worked as an occupational therapist in a hospital with Corona patients.  A week and a half ago, the hospital opted to let her take extra maternity leave and still keep her job.  Up to then, if she would have stayed home, she would have lost her job.  Lots of tough ethical decisions by both employees and employers in critical jobs right now.  Everyone stay as safe as possible!
