Quarantine fatigue is a major concern with those who are most vulnerable.  As the economy starts to slowly open up, those with weakened immune systems are concerned about the expected increase in the numbers of COVID-19 cases.   For this perspective, I talked to Brittany Reeves, no relation.  She is a graduate student at Arkansas State University.  Reeves has the most severe form of spina bifida.  She is an amputee and her immune system is extremely compromised.  In this interview, I talked to her about her health conditions and her concerns about catching COVID-19.
