MaryAnn Digman's guest Jackie Powers Roskosky is a retired infection preventionist and one who is recovering, along with her family, from COVID 19. Her experiences with the virus, managing her symptoms as well as her husband’s and daughter’s infection course, were challenging. She described the fever, aches and extreme fatigue as being worse for her husband even though very significant for her. Jackie and her family are still having symptoms after one month even though they are no longer considered infectious. Jackie’s message was, “if you get COVID 19, don’t panic. Use a pulse oximeter and a thermometer to evaluate these vital signs. You can recover.” Jackie also reiterated that we all need to wear a mask, wash our hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer and keep our hands away from our face.
