When Kati Durkee got a sore throat, she went to the pharmacy.
A week later, she found out that it wasn't a cold. Or allergies. And that food poisoning that settled in, that wasn't food poisoning either.
A week later still, Durkee's son (Durkee has a son in 11th grade and a daughter in 10th, but did not want their names in this story) got what she had -- COVID-19.
"We were not the two-week people," she says.
There were bouts of dizziness, migraines, tachycardia, and extreme fatigue.
