New baby, uncertain times

Knox family expecting second child in the middle of COVID-19 outbreak

With their second child due in May, Devyn and Chelsea Knox, of Cuero and Nordheim, face an uncertain future in the delivery room and life after. The outbreak of COVID-19, or coronavirus, has led to an overall change in how both the public and family interacts with one another, and for good reason. However, this extra step in safety will also affect the Knox family in multiple ways.

Currently 36-weeks pregnant with their daughter, Chelsea, 25, and Devyn, 24, sat down for an interview, safely apart, of course.

“As far as my personal life goes,” said Chelsea, “I’m scared to go to the grocery store–I’m scared to go anywhere.”

She continued, “At what should be an exciting time in my life because I’m about to give birth, I’m terrified–and it’s not even baby related, it’s coming into contact with people and thinking ‘Have they came into contact with someone who had it?’”

The duo has taken precautions to stay healthy during these times, including limiting family interaction and keeping themselves, along with their one-year-old son, Colt, out of public areas. For their careers, Chelsea noted that her employers at Cuero Veterinary Clinic, where she is a vet tech, have taken various steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Instead of using both exam rooms, we are kind of just limiting to one exam room,” she stated.

 The clinic, as Chelsea explained, is also allowing only so many  guests in the waiting room, along with meeting patients at their vehicles and escorting them to the exam rooms.

While all steps are being taken for Chelsea to remain healthy, the family still worries about their son.
