At this point, a majority of the United States is under the order to stay home until coronavirus (COVID-19) has hit its peak and starts dwindling down. Social distancing is becoming our new normal and while the country is simultaneously going stir-crazy, the sooner everyone obeys the "stay at home" mandate, the sooner we'll be able to open our doors and go back to what is left of our normal lives.
In the meantime, some have the privilege to work from home while others have lost their jobs and are wondering when they can expect to start working again. Even still, there are essential workers who are bravely going into work every day. Nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals are leading the charge of these essential workers, not only taking care of those who've been diagnosed by COVID-19, but putting their own health at risk each time they clock in for their shift.
