GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A woman from Gadsden County who tested positive for coronavirus has a message for all of us: Stay home and take the coronavirus seriously.

Dominque Logan says this is the first day she feels good since being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Logan works at the Apalachee Corrections East Unit in Jackson County.

On March 21, she attended a gathering with her coworkers. Just over a week later on March 29, one of those coworkers tested positive for COVID-19.

Not long after, Logan says she started feeling sick.

She was tested April 1, at the Quincy Health Department. Two days later, Logan learned she had the virus, and was told to quarantine at home.

Logan said it started with a a headache.

"A headache, it'll be like a headache and then the headache will progress," said Logan. "Like it starts getting really, really, really tense. And then you'll get body aches and pains, and that'll progress during the day. "

Logan says it's worse at night, but the symptoms vary from day-to-day.

Her children are at home with her, but are physically staying away from her at all times, and are being cared for by her spouse.

Logan has another week of quarantine and is taking Tylenol and vitamins to help her recovery.

We'll have more from Logan and her story in our ABC 27 News at 11 p.m. According to the Florida Department of Health, Gadsden County only has five confirmed cases of COVID-19 thus far.
