For the past few years, learning how to deal with a pandemic referred to as Covid-19, was an everyday struggle for humankind. The fear of leaving your house to get groceries, or even going to work had people struggling to live the life of what was worry-free. At the very beginning of the pandemic, I was working at my very first job, which was at an assisted living facility. I was a server at the dining hall in the facility and made great connections with some really nice people. In the midst of the first wave of Covid, the facility had to restrict visitors from coming and began taking everyone's temperatures who came into the building. With weeks passing by, and doctors learning more and more about this disease, it was deemed to be the worst for the elderly, which caused the residents to be forced to stay in their rooms all day.
