COVID-19 concerns: Great question and don't worry. At 27 and in good health, even if you 'catch' COVID-19, you will likely have symptoms no worse than a common cold. Your job as a healthy young person is to reduce spread to high-risk people (older than 70, pre-existing conditions, compromised immunity). Hand washing, social distancing, no unnecessary travel/contact will help you do your part to keep others healthy!
