Welcome aboard. I understand your concern about your colleagues. I'm in academia as an adjunct and also work in the medical world as a hospice chaplain/spiritual counselor. Although, everyone at our hospice company carries since we do in-home hospice care & many of our patients live in very rough neighborhoods.
Thank you much! It sucks having to be cautious about who knows but at the same time I don't want to alarm anyone with a decision that I've made for myself. I'm glad to hear that your hospice work allows you to protect yourself. I wish you luck in both your endeavors. Both are tough jobs. Safe travels!
