Dawn and Nathan Ashbrook said they don’t know where they caught COVID-19 and they thought they were doing all the right things to prevent themselves from getting it. They caught it anyway, and it could have cost one of them their life.
The Ashbrooks own and operate Whispering Oaks Terrace, a wedding and special events venue on the south side of Temecula. Nathan Ashbrook is a tall man who does much of the physical work in maintaining the property for guests and clients. He said he’s always been good about keeping his hands clean – he doesn’t touch guardrails and sanitizes high-contact areas – and because of the physical nature of his work, he’s in good shape.
“I don’t get sick; I get hurt,” he said.
