During this COVID-19 pandemic, we are adapting to the “new normal.” Work and school are no longer physical, and we have to adjust to learning to work and study remotely. This is probably the most detached we have been physically since the Bubonic plague.
But if you think you’ve suffered the brunt of quarantine life, you may have to think twice. What more our front liners who regularly expose themselves to danger, right? In the story below, I will be sharing a peek to what a front liner’s life looks like.
In Danvers, Massachusetts, USA, a sweet video between a front liner and her interaction with her beloved dog was shared. The video caption details, that the sender’s sister is a nurse, and that she had been staying in a nursing home for three weeks to prevent the spread of the virus. And that night, she FaceTimed her dog with whom she has a super close relationship to and did her signature whistle. And the video shows how her dog reacted.
Apparently, since the health care worker has been exposed to the virus and probably may or may not have contacted it, she has to be quarantined in a nursing home before she can go home to her family. The quarantine duration is three weeks. It may not sound long, but nursing home quarantines are stricter than average to the point that it can be stifling.
Since the nurse hasn’t seen her family in a while, she missed them so much. This included her adorable dog, of course! And thanks to FaceTime, they can easily communicate with each other despite the physical distance.
During the video call, the health worker did her signature whistle. Her dog perks up, clearly knowing who that distinctive whistle belongs to. And whenever the pooch howls whenever her owner speaks, the longing between the two is more evident!
I hope the two get to meet soon!
