Also, there is the French connection. Paris and Bordeaux had cases arriving from China around January 18-22 but France has also retroactively identified a case who was infected with COVID in mid-December and was admitted to a hospital just outside Paris on December 27th. The customers at my work are predominately young Parisians. It was the holidays. My store is very claustrophobic and very busy during the winter. It's possible that somone flew in from Paris carrying COVID during those weeks and it was circulating among people who were asymptomatic or assumed it was just that bad flu that was going around. We weren't doing community testing and Quebec was slow to respond with testing even once they knew it had arrived.

Everything is just peachy. I’m spending the day trying not to think about returning to work tomorrow. Boy, that’s gonna be weird.
M______ is struggling with the job search. Basically, her industry (events) no longer exists. She can't get comparable jobs in different fields because her experience is unrelated and lower level jobs are turning her down for being overqualified.
