Here is Penny's story.
"Crying in my car every morning before work wondering if this will be the day I take this home to my family.
Customers thankful that we're present to serve them, yet treating us like lepers when the reality is we're the middleman in this scenario: the transmitters from the infected (knowingly and unknowingly) to the unsuspecting.
PPE becomes protocol: clear barricades divide humanity.
Trying to provide customer service in a sterile environment where you can't reach out to lend a hand to a senior struggling with their groceries.
Life consists of work, then home to rest until the next shift. Out of shape, with repetitive strain from constant sanitization, we are in need of a physical and mental break.
Finally, the launch of vaccinations and a glimmer of hope for the future."
