Not great being an HVAC tech right now

A few years ago when I was trying to decide what to do with my life, I thought it made the most sense to take the practical route and avoid going to an expensive four-year college. Rather than trying to get a very expensive college degreed in a specialized industry that was being over populated by other college grads, I decided to go to trade school. There are going to be a million businessmen and accountants in this world following the college boom, but I think that there is a shortage of service and trade individuals. I decided to get my two year heating and cooling certification so I could immediately enter the job field and fulfill an important position helping other people. Well, I graduated from heating and cooling university in December, and I never could have anticipated that the global environment would take such a turn. I have to say, I’m not happy being a heating and cooling technician at this point in time. People are losing their minds over the coronavirus and I can’t pretend to be relaxed about the whole thing. Every single time I arrive at a new home to perform a heating or cooling repair service or routine maintenance task, I am terrified to touch anything in their home. I don’t want to breathe the same air as potentially infected people or to scoop up virus from their air filter. Seeing as my job requires me to interact with the public, I have otherwise quarantined myself. I don’t want to spread corona from my clients to my family, all because of a stupid heating and cooling certification.
