My son came home from Harlem on June 3. On June 8, they called him and asked him to return and offered him even more money than the first time, so he accepted. He flew back the very next day. After just two weeks there, he was told that FEMA has cancelled the emergency fund that was paying him, and that all contract medical personnel would be returning home on July 6. No more gravy train after that day.
He will be coming home to quarantine. His fiance was exposed to a friend that was asymptomatic, but tested positive for COVID. She got tested herself and is also positive for COVID. She didn’t complain of any symptoms until she was told about her friend and decided to get tested. She claims that she has lost her sense of taste, is extremely tired, and feels like bugs are crawling all over her. I am not sure if these symptoms are real, or are just psychosomatic. At any rate, she is quarantined for 2 weeks, and I guess he will be too, once he gets home.
This is what COVID is now: mild symptoms (if any) and massive economic damage.

Better to have family close in times like these. Keep your head up…

"FEMA has cancelled the emergency fund"
Ouch… they better pray there is no second spike.

No kidding. On one hand I think my son was nuts for going the first time, even nuttier for the second. However, he made two years' pay in just over two months.
