I swear, sometimes I wish I could eat everything and never eat again, both at the same time.

There are some exemptions for jury duty that were listed in the letter, concerns about the pandemic being one of them but I think you have to be immune compromised and I'm not really since I'm pretty healthy now. They also are probably going to need more people now because of the social distancing and other things they need to do.
I talked with one of my coworkers, whose daughter had to do it. She called the number every day as instructed but she never had to go, apparently they didn't need her. Pretty sure this was before the pandemic.
I also talked with my boss. We wondered about 3rd shift being an exemption but we don't think so. He's had to do it and seemed like he kind of enjoyed it. He said depending on the type of case you get it could be pretty interesting. He mentioned wondering how the court system works in real life as opposed to what is seen on a TV show like Law & Order. He told me to keep an open mind about it. He lives in a different county than I do so I would have to go to a different courthouse than he did. It could be interesting, I think part of my hesitation was the initial shock of seeing such an official letter, since I've never done it before. My boss was surprised I never had to do it. He said his wife had too and his brother-in-law had to do it 3 different times and all 3 of them are in their mid thirties.
The letter also states the court does compensate for the time you're actually there and if I understood what my boss told me that the company pays the difference of your pay, so you're not losing out on pay.
He also told me just call or text him as soon as I find out if I have to go and he puts me absent due to jury duty, so you don't get penalized for not being at work. He understands that I would need the night off before going so I can be alert while there and then will need that night off because of being up all day.
