Anita - Shirecliffe

To start with I was very frightened of it. Obviously I’ve got a family. I actually catch two buses to come to work and two buses go home, so I was very paranoid when I got on buses.

 

Sterilising, mask, everything. Even when people cough on bus, it sort of, well, I was not frighterned of coming into work but I think I was more prone to when coming on the busses. And then getting off, coming in sanitising PPE, you know what I mean. Then you felt safe because you’d got everything on to keep you safe. But yeah it was hard.

"And, you know, we had that whole rule of, no touching, you know how, how, in that moment, it just was something I couldn’t do. And I broke that rule. And I got down on the ground, and I put my hand on her back and let her cry. "
