I'm grounded cause my husband traveled. Under a new order, returning travelers must quarantine 10 days and they should isolate from others in the household, even wear masks at home. Husband is about to return from a work trip, & he's not on board.

Ridiculously inconvenient, but I do not feel it's ethical to risk infecting others.

Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left).
