   Is a sub gig worth the health of your family?

That main question that has been going through my head as of late, since school has started.  I’ve been very lucky to be able to attend schools I know that also happen to have very stringent health protocols.  But I won’t go somewhere new, where I don’t know the people or the lay of the land.  Even with the familiarity and risk reduction, the chance to be infected isn’t zero.

The other side of the coin is, of course, I’m a big fan of eating and keeping up on the bills that, through some dark magic, continue to arrive and require my fiscal involvement even when deep into a world pandemic.

Being Canadian, I had access to the CERB, which while available provided income to keep the home-fires going and remain safely at home with minimal exposure.  I haven’t been more proud of a Canadian Federal government for taking such bold steps to keep its population safe.

Yet, as the second wave comes, the fiscal reality of the government’s finances may dictate that there will be no relief available.  It is very possible that the schools, and thus my employment, may become unavailable for an undetermined length of time.

So then given the uncertainty of future work should I take more risks and work now because no work may be the only option open in the future – but if I catch the virus now I may be out for months recuperating with added negative of possibly killing my vulnerable family members.

This sort of risk drenched future is hell on risk averse individuals such as myself.

I’ll do my best and hope that it is enough for whatever scenario we happen to fall into.

 

*sigh*
