@Mcardona1954‍ Hello Mcardona1954, That sounds like a fun way to get out and get some exercise!

Hello members, I hope you don't mind that I've tagged you! How are you doing? Keeping your chins up despite these difficult circumstances? Do any of you have any fun tips to stay active or to pass the time?

Hi! I have COPD as well as being a lung cancer patient.  I have just finished my last immunotherapy treatment.  I have been following all the protocols for this virus.  I also monitor my oxygen level and heart rate daily.  So far I am doing okay. I worry as my husband is a truck driver and I know he doesn't take this seriously and does not take the necessary precautions.

I Drive a City Bus and I don't understand why the paid leave stay at home order doesn't apply for me because of my COPD. I know this is an essential business for people but I am at more risk of dying if I catch this Virus.

Honestly, I’m kind of worried about this coronavirus. I have COPD and MS, along with several other things, but the part that has me concerned is I have to go to the hospital once a month to get an infusion of medicine to treat the MS. The medicine is a biologic, which is an immunosuppressant. I do what I can to follow the guidelines and keep myself safe, but there’s still times that I will have to be in public and around other people.

 I have severe copd and I am scared of catching this virus but cant get any straight answers on what I should be doing on staying home. I dont think I should have to use all my fmla time due to this unforeseen circumstance. If anyone has any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
