Thank goodness the last order for the evening was out of the door. It has been such a hectic day. Paul was ill and Cathy had to manage on her own. It was true they had help with cooking and packing the food for delivery. But she had to supervise each worker and make sure that strict hygiene was being practiced. Their business depended on it. And the fact that her husband, Paul was not well was making her worry too. If he wasn’t better by tomorrow, she would ring up the local hospital to check if he could be tested for the infection.

One thing that she really grateful for was the support their community was giving them. With the Restaurants closed for dining in, their businessman would have closed, but the takeaway and home delivery orders were coming in daily in enough numbers to keep them viable.

She was desperately hoping that things go back to normal soon.

  1. We all want to go back to normal, but I don’t want it to happen too soon. If we return to normal too soon the virus could peak again and infect those who avoided it the first time around.
