As of December 7th, 2020 scientists are questioning the “immunity” of those who have previously been afflicted with the Covid-19 virus.

Wife and Mother Tanya first got sick in April 2020, after her and her family were sick the first time, Tanya was left with many medical issues she had never had before. Now months after this ordeal, she and her family have tested positive for the virus a second time, and while she said her symptoms are milder this time, her husband’s seems to be more intense.

Tanya isn’t the only one who has gone through something like this. Nurse, Holly Sox contracted the virus for a second time after having it the first time three months prior. Doctors explained she hadn’t developed a strong enough immune response to prevent her from getting it again. “Not only do I not have energy, I just feel like I have something weighing me down, keeping me down. I have shortness of breath, which keeps me down almost daily…or just doing simple things around the house where I feel like I’ve just run or gone up a couple of flights of stairs,”  Sox explains.

No one is immune. The stories of Tanya and Holly are proof of this, and both of these women were being very cautious, Tanya later says in her interview “To get it again, I think I am still in shock because I don’t know anyone who has been more careful than we have been,”

Remember to wear a mask, follow the advice Principal Wilkey has given us, “Stay home when sick or if you are awaiting the results of a COVID test, practice physical distancing, continue using the right side of hallways and stairs at school, avoid congregating in groups before or after school and at lunch, wear masks in the car and whenever possible,  wash and/or change your mask daily, Wash and/or sanitize hands frequently during the day, and avoid touching your face as much as possible.”
