I'm not stuck at home YET, I'm just agonisingly waiting to see if I become symptomatic as a client has it.
I'm really upset with him, I don't know if I'm being dramatic but I feel... violated? I don't know if that's the right word.
His dog was booked in for a walk and then groom last Friday (I transport him to the groomer after the walk). I arrived and both guys were home, which I thought was odd, but they were upstairs so I just got the dog, put his harness on and left. I walked him and drove him to the groomer, waited for him to be groomed, then dropped him home again. When I dropped him home the one guy was downstairs and acted really weird, no small talk like normal on the rare occasions I see him. Thinking back to it, he was odd when I tried to come into the kitchen where he was so I just stopped, asked if he wanted me to take the harness off the dog (to which I got a blunt "no") and left. I didn't think anything of it until Monday morning when the client messaged saying he and his family were self isolating as he's sure he has it (in the last five weeks he has travelled to Italy and America for work so it's highly likely). From the way he acted on Friday, I'm now certain he knew then, but didn't want to say anything in case the walk/groom got cancelled. There's not really any other explanation for why both clients were home and they acted so weird. I'm livid because they don't know me, they don't know that I'm not diabetic, pregnant, asthmatic and so on. I'm just so shocked at how selfish it was, just so their dog was could be groomed. The irony is, if they'd told me I still would've walked their dog, I'd have just known to take extra precautions, but I didn't introduce my full "coronavirus policy" and put a statement out until Saturday (though obviously I was hand washing more frequently by then - but that's hard to do on a walk!).
Thankfully, I'm a healthy adult, and there's only a very small chance I will have picked it up from the dog/while in the house. If I do get it I don't doubt I'll be fine, but the lady who groomed him is about 70 so may not be, and I was at a workshop on Sunday with a lady who's been in and out of hospital with a chest infection for two months and she may not be either 🤬
I am "social distancing" (aka living my life exactly the same as before 😂). I'm only leaving my house to work (I don't really see any humans so I should be fine!), and I'm taking a lot of precautions to protect both myself and the owners. I'm just so annoyed at the situation 😒
