“What my self-care routine looks like these days: mask, boba, and peace signs
The more informed that we stay about how Covid-19 spreads, the better we can protect ourselves and our communities to slow the impact of the virus. One of the reasons I’ve been super cautious about the virus since the beginning is because my mom is immunocompromised. I don’t want to be a carrier who unknowingly passes it to her or others like her.
When we think about at-risk populations, we also have to remember those who have been deemed essential frontline workers. Black and Hispanic people make up a higher-than-average portion of this group. While this virus is infecting and killing Americans of all races, it is disproportionately affecting Black and Hispanic communities (who are already battling systemic racism!).
I recognize that I have certain privileges that enable me to work from home. In recognizing my privilege, it’s been even more crucial that I do what I can to help protect those who may not share the same privileges. I firmly believe that the smallest act that we can all take is wearing a mask whenever we’re in public and will be within 6ft of others.
I wear a mask to protect:
🤍 The immunocompromised person (like my mom) who’s been battling an illness that isn’t always visible
🤍 The grocery store employee who lives with and takes care of their elderly parents
🤍 The restaurant owner with an asthmatic daughter
🤍 The elderly
🤍 All the frontline workers who shouldn’t have to choose between putting food on the table and protecting themselves and their loved ones
There is so much we don’t know about the virus yet but the one thing we do know is that the impacts of this thing can be so much greater if we don’t continue to take steps to prevent the spread.
