What just months ago would have seemed like a scene from a bad Sci-Fi movie, is now normal.
On Saturday I went with Jon to get a COVID 19 test before his surgery.
We drove into a parking lot behind Saratoga Hospital and waited in the car under a canopy for a nurse covered from head to toe wearing a blue gown, mask, face shield, and rubber gloves. She came out and stuck a swab in Jon’s mouth then retreated to the storage contain/makeshift lab with the specimen. We never got out of the car.
Jon had done this already before his first surgery a few weeks ago, so he knew what to expect and luckily wasn’t worried about a positive test result.
It was the strangest drive-thru I’ve ever been to.
