Perdensal Springs was diagnosed with COVID-19 7 months ago. She no longer tests positive for the coronavirus but she is far from recovered as symptoms persist. One day in late April, Springs took longer than usual getting ready for her job transporting seniors for the nonprofit PACE of the Southern Piedmont. She says that lately it’s been the little things that get her tangled up. Photo credit: The’ N Pham/ Charlotte Observer, used with permission.
