Josh Stewart Recounts His COVID-19 Experience

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that New York is the current epicenter of the coronavirus. We’ve been laying extra low; but we do know of a few friends that have done battle and come out on the other side of nasty COVID-19 infections. Josh Stewart is the latest. This one really hits home because we spent a couple of hours talking with him and the Theories crew about the pandemic at the Hopps pop-up on what feels like the last normal Sunday before shit hit the fan.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve gone through a little bit of an experience being the first person I know directly (yes, I actually know myself directly) to have contracted the Covid-19 virus. “Well, have you been tested?” is what I know you’re saying out loud to your computer screen right now. I know this because EVERYone I’ve spoken to has asked me that question right off the bat. The answer is “NO!”. Actually, “hell no!”, good freaking LUCK getting to a hospital in NYC and securing one of the very few tests available right now. You’d have better luck finding a golden ticket in a Wonka bar. I’ve spoken to people since I got sick who said they called in to the health department in NYC to get tested and were grilled about their temperatures, if they’d been around someone with a confirmed case, etc. And then swiftly denied access to a test. So, if you were gullible enough to believe Trump when he said from his podium “anybody who wants a test can get a test” I’ve got news for you.

Head over to the Theories blog to read the full story.
