Oh, yes I did!
I'm such an idiot.
When I explained to the dispatcher, she was very gracious, but told me that a squad car was en route anyway.
I felt so bad that I waited downstairs for the police and when she arrived, I came out in the rain to tell her I was OK. The officer, too, was gracious, telling me no apology was necessary and she was glad nothing was wrong.
I was drenched in guilt and humiliation. Oh yeah, and this caused me to miss the meeting. The first real work I've had all week!
My boss had given me a quick overview of what the content was going to be, and so I was able to give him a few topline ideas anyway. I don't think anything will come of it, or this project, but at least I did what was asked of me.
And I have an anecdote for when someone asks me what I did in self quarantine.
