From what I can figure out, I likely caught it Tuesday and became symptomatic on Thursday. I didn’t feel great but was able to telework Friday while taking long breaks to lie down.

I welcome any other suggestions for damage control. I feel like I’m getting better. But I’m definitely still sick. I’m grateful I don’t seem to have too severe a case or complications... yet. I do have risk factors for complications. I’m not in the clear yet.
