Though the elderly and those with preexisting conditions are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, the virus can strike even the most unsuspecting. Just ask Gerry Hernandez, an otherwise-healthy 39-year-old Mayor Pro Tem from Adelanto, CA.

In this episode of Continuum, Gerry joins us to discuss his battle with the virus.

Gerry shares what his life was like prior to his hospitalization and the challenges of being hospitalized during a pandemic, which kept him separated from his loving family. He also discusses the current stage of his recovery, inpatient rehabilitation at Ballard Rehabilitation Hospital.
