Couple Describe Their Long Fight With COVID-19

Published: Oct. 27, 2020

Chris Legband works in home health care and has regularly visited an elderly family outside Fremont throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The elderly couple was recently moved from assisted living by their family in an effort to prevent getting COVID-19.

Chris said only one other group of people entered the home during that time. Despite wearing personal protective equipment, including gowns, masks and face shields, they exposed Chris to COVID-19.

She and her husband, Mark, soon tested positive for COVID-19. While Mark's symptoms didn't require medical care, Chris ended up spending time in the Intensive Care Unit at Methodist Fremont Health. Even now, after returning home, the fight with the virus has left a lasting impact — physically and mentally.
