My First "Voluntary Quarantine"

Hey! So when I wrote this post I was half way through my trip in BC for a student journalism conference. What ended up happening was not expected at all! Novo Virus (also known as Norwalk Virus) broke out at the hotel resulting in a "voluntary quarantine."So at first we were not able to leave our rooms and had to separate the healthy from the sick. Then we watched the twitter updates roll in to see what we were going to do as most of us were flying out the next day. Later in the afternoon some guys with masks came to our door and said "if you aren't sick then you need to leave the hotel." I was like what? I have no where to go! I ended up leaving with another girl I met at the conference and we found a hotel near the airport where we could stay. So it ended up being quite a memorable trip.. to say the least.

You can read the details of the outbreak here

Below is what I had started for this post before the virus broke out.. I thought I would keep it there anyways :)

Hello! So I have not been blogging much since I have been trying to get back into the routine of school and am now currently on the other side of the country in British Columbia. I may have mentioned before that I am the Photo Editor for my school news paper. So there is a conference for the Canadian University Press (CUP) going on in Victoria BC this week that I am partaking in. I thought I would share a few of the photos I have taken so far while here.
