Yesterday was my first day back at work since our tearoom became a Tier 1/2 exposure site and people had to isolate at home. I missed it all because I was fortunately on leave.
We’re now wearing N95/P2 masks while at work, and bloody hell- mad respect for all the healthcare workers who have had to wear these for the last 20+ months (or just in general). Obviously it goes without saying, but you’re all absolute champs.
And that’s regardless of the masks 😂 Anyone who can dedicate their life to looking after people are absolute legends.
Seriously though, my face just felt like the below image all day. 😂 😷
Even just seven hours of wear made my skin feel abrasive and break out.
Seriously, thank our healthcare workers. They deserve every praise we can give.
