Americans everywhere, out of necessity, have suddenly become hyper-vigilant when it comes to avoiding germs.
For some, however, the extreme measures taken to avoid germs were part of their everyday habits before coronavirus was a household name.
One of these people is New Jersey resident and attorney Frank Udinson. Once the subject of questioning stares from neighbors as he wiped down the daily mail from the mailbox, he’s now part of the norm. So what’s life like for a self-admitted germophobe in the midst of a deadly global pandemic?
Faithwire caught up with Udinson earlier this week for an eye-opening discussion about the “extreme” measures he is taking during this pandemic.
Udinson, who is also host of the “What Am I Doing?” podcast, provides a glimpse into the window of someone who already daily obsesses about contracting germs. As a self-admitted germophobe before the coronavirus pandemic hit, he already made a habit of social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands, and excessively wiping things down. So how does someone who already obsesses about germs deal with a global pandemic that’s killing tens of thousands of people? Has he increased his vigilance to extreme measures? Is it business as usual and everyone else is just catching up to his normal routine?
