Be prepared, while the measures may flatten the curve, a statement from Angela Merkel last week was they expect 60-70% of the German population will catch this and its reasonable to assume a similar percentage here.

I had to google what coal face was. Best wishes to those in health care and retail, without those remaining open this situation would be much worse than it always is.

CEO just emailed that the 60% already working from home should stay there till at least 4/3. He wants to get as many of the remaining 40% home as is realistically possible too.

I'm getting a tad anxious myself and it's only Day 3. Wondering if it's maybe time for me to give up my tea totaler status and start drinking.

snorkeling in warm, clear wate...
My whole dept is working remote as of last Monday. Some of us have been remote since last Thursday. Today, one of my team has a fever of 101* and Army doc told her to self-quarantine for a couple of days and get back to him with an update. Really wish he'd tested her for the flu since that's the most likely scenario in this area. In the meantime... K-12 has cancelled through the end of the semester, churches are closed as are bars, restaurants, movie theaters, etc. I think we're about down to medical, banks, grocers, and drug stores. We went for a drive last night to get some fresh air (and hit a few Pokestops....) and it was weird. Parking lots weren't 100% empty, but close enough.

Wash your hands!

We have now officially closed all lobbies and gone to drive thru only. A customer can request an appointment to see an employee if needed. I am at home now as are many at the bank. I think in the past 3 days our IT department has made it possible for over half of our staff to work from home. They have done an amazing job.

My wife had to point out my hypocrisy of crabbing about people hoarding TP as I was loading multiple cases of beer into my truck

That was said tongue in cheek after seeing all the pictures of what DoS appears to be doing. I opted for knitting instead.

Way, way south.
My coworker's ex just found out he tested positive for CV (he had just gotten back from London). The Urgent Care told him to go home and self-isolate. He's 69, so he's definitely in that danger zone.

Yes, there is that, and from what I've heard, not a very nice one at that.

OK
I think a concern is: social distancing begins to work. Reported cases and deaths begin to wane. I think there could be a lot of pressure to prematurely curtail social distancing, and it sounds like in that case, we could very quickly get back to where we are now. Whether the govt. backs off in that scenario or not, people being what they are might begin to ignore the warnings. With the news reports i'm seeing about spring breakers and their seemingly carefree attitude about all of this--it just seems like our chances to work together as a country and do what we need to do aren't high. Hope i'm wrong about that.

I dunno, but I have found that the morning bloody mary bar has really lifted moral here at the home office.

Things really pick up at the late afternoon martini break as well.

You need to shut down the bars, liquor stores, and mommy and daddy's bank account before you get the spring breakers attention.

Nashville has closed the bars downtown. Restaurants are still open; however no dine-in. People aren't happy!

Kentucky is promoting liquor stores to deliver. And bars and restaurants can sell drinks for pickup up or drive thru.

We went from 2 cases in Michigan on the 11th, to 546 as of the 19th.

In my state they aren't even testing people who show up to the hospital with all the symptoms. They just send them home and tell them to self isolate. My neighbor works at the hospital and a hospice center and she was hesitant to tell my wife that little detail.

I'm sure the numbers are going to climb. Hopefully as people stay away from each other for a sufficient length of time, this will become an ugly memory.

Here in NY we are one step from complete lock down. This stuff is serious and hopefully folks will heed the warnings and stay home.
