After many hand washes, disinfecting wipes, and staying 6 feet away from the employees at the shelter, she is home! Now I need a new name... pic.twitter.com/eDqo3wcgA4— Claire (@Calamity_James) March 25, 2020
I hope this helps someone out there. These are the extreme precautions I’m taking at home. Don’t let anything inside the house without disinfecting it. Use one pair shoes to go out and leave it outside the house. Outside of your front door. Wash your clothes right away. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/Cla0RerBs9— Natalia Suarez Bugarin (@nataliasuarez_b) March 24, 2020
I found this on our porch today. Thanks @DavidDenning2 and family. After the use of a disinfecting spray, it went straight to my home office! Kindness on display in the face of adversity! #WeAreGCISD pic.twitter.com/qcXfe3XF4Z— Robin Ryan (@robinryan_gcisd) March 22, 2020
