Peyton Chesser wasn't taking chances when the coronavirus pandemic locked down the country in March. The 23-year-old Houston woman stayed home, even conceding grocery pickups to her roommate.

After Texas' stay-at home order ended April 30 and some businesses opened, she cautiously ventured out. Even though early data showed Covid-19 was most dangerous for older people, she was careful, told CNN's Erica Hill on Wednesday.

"I wasn't going to crowded restaurants. I wasn't going to crowded places in general (or) social settings," she recalled.

She resumed grocery trips and even went back to a gym. And right around then, to her frustration, she came down with Covid-19. She still doesn't know where she picked it up.

"That was one of the first things that I said, was, 'How could I have possibly gotten this?'" Chesser said. "I was so anxious about getting it since this all started in March, February."

My money's on the gym.

Really unfortunate if true

One of the things I most loved about USC was the diverse student population and for the most part everybody getting along. At one point I had three roomates: one from Venezuela, one from the Philippines, a Chinese-American and when Konrad (the one from the Philippines) moved out a Japanese-American moved in. My freshman year, one of my best friends was an Iranian student.

I've tried to track down my Venezuelan roommate with no luck. He was absolutely one of the nicest people I've ever met, and with things going bad there I've often wondered about him. He was studying Veterinary medicine but left abruptly without explanation in his junior year.

It depended on the school you were attending. The business majors didn't have a very good reputation, some of them cheated and drank their way through USC. I had business major roommates at points and they were Frat Bros i didn't think much of. But if you went there to learn, you got out of it what you put into it.

My time at SC was four of the best years of my life.
