“Yeah, I mean I’m great I’ve always been great you know due to the circumstances that went on there in the last week with you know… the positive coronavirus test that happened in the company I just thought it was wiser for me to stay with my family that day. I told the people in charge there and they didn’t even flinch. They were like, ‘Okay.’ That’s it.”
“You know there’s no push-back I mean I don’t think there would be push back on anybody and the way my mind is once it’s made it that’s the way it’s gonna be. They were respectful of my decision and I’m glad that I took it and it was the best thing for my family.”
