For downtime, Tallahassee nurse Megan Frost retreats to her family’s beach house. She can relax and put work in the COVID ICU aside while spending time with loved ones.

COVID came into the home of yours truly at the tail end of 2020. We can guess how it happened, but we’re not sure. We’ve been mostly socially distant, wearing face masks, and living our lives.
