I had a been supervising thirteen people and preparing for everyone to continue working while wearing P100 respirators on the worksites. For a month I was back to fixing units on my own. I was lucky. I kept working in empty apartments, but the rest of our staff were going into occupied apartments, and it scared me, but not in the way you might think. . ."
