"I was completely wiped out. Even if I wasn’t in quarantine I wouldn’t have been able to go work. That’s how sick I was. I’ve never been that sick," Sheriff Chitwood said. "I can tell you that I would not wish what I went through on my worst enemy."

According to his Twitter posts, his symptoms included headaches, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, and lack of sleep.

Thankfully though, Sheriff Chitwood is now clear of symptoms and back at work.
