    Here at the nursing home, almost any doctor’s visit that can be done by televisit, is being done that way. Of course, before COVID-19, almost none were. I bet people decide to use it a lot ore now that they’ve tried it.

    My husband and I receive visual calls from our doctors. Lol one of them had to take time out because her dog was barking at a delivery man.

    Working from home can be ideal. Many moms would still need to put their child in daycare, as I’ve seen job descriptions, they expect you to be in a separate office, quiet, locking drawers for safekeeping, able to wear headphones, and they often count keystrokes, and track things like how much you are supposed to accomplish (ie minimums, etc.). If your kids are already in school, it is more doable.
