Another Sign of a Diminishing Sunrise . . .

. . .I’ve been quarantined half a week now and regulations demand lunch and dinner be delivered to such sequestered residents.

I call daily to ask what’s on the menu but to really remind staff I’m here.

Today, lunch was not delivered. No one knows why.

And the dinner server remained in the hallway this evening to wave when I opened to door to retrieve my food.

All Group Activities Cancelled . . .

. . . for two weeks at Sunrise of Gilbert in the wake of three COVID-19 quarantines

in the Independent Living wing and reports of other cases elsewhere in the facility along with reports of the rising number of new cases out there in the world.

You could hear a huge sigh of relief whoosh through the building because someone has taken charge. There have been a couple of yowls about the cessation of the free-booze happy hour. But the inmates responded readily to the fact that everybody can do whatever they want, there just aren’t any group activities for this period other than meals in the dining room and bus trips for shopping.
