As much as I eat out normally, I'm still trying to support those businesses and their employees by getting take-out, because I know they're hurting.
It has been interesting transitioning to a work-from-home work flow. My company has been resistant to letting us do so previously due to confidentiality concerns. But 2 people in the engineering group test positive for Covid-19, after that they allowed employees without company laptops or tablets to take entire desktop workstations home. It is mostly just conference calls with people's children in the back ground so far, but it is difficult to collaborate remotely.

In the larger sense, I am concerned about the aftermath of all of this. A lot of the jobs that vanished will likely be slow to return, some may not return at all. But people's lives continue despite those losses. It seems a little bleak at the moment, but it seems like a take each day as it comes scenario.

I am right there with you, I am more concerned with the aftermath of all this. It will be interesting to see how the WORLD overcomes this.

As for me I am thankfully in the military, so my job security isn't threatened and as long as the government stays open, Ill get a paycheck. But my wife is in the medical field and has already been in contact with someone who was in contact with a positive case of COVID-19. She is in her second to last semester of Nursing School and we hope that they don't put her education on hold. She is hoping to be able to do her preceptorship and help with this pandemic. We are still waiting to hear from her school if they will allow the students to do so.

AF_1132,
I can feel your pain to a certain degree, when my wife was pregnant with our daughter, the ZIKA virus was exploding and we were always concerned on it affecting my daughter. Thankfully we were blessed and she never got the virus.

But your wife and child are in our prayers, as well as all of you. Stay safe out there and always wash your hands!

"on an up-note"...

I will say....... dam, I have some more time with my cb7 that's for sure! The daily driver is getting 0KM and I can start on the cb7 as soon as work is done. Quite nice.

Ironically I can't spend any money, which I have the urge to do now....

It's been day to day for me and my fiance (got engaged yesterday ) she works at the local Whole Foods which is just one exit up from where we reside. Meanwhile I commute 25 miles north to NH for work as a flat rate tech.

Just got word this afternoon that all non-essential jobs in Massachusetts are due to close by noon but I'm not affected so I'm still commuting.

I worry more about my fiance because she's currently 2 months pregnant and with her job she's always interacting with the public..so I'm constantly worrying about that now.

As for me, I'm wrapping up the sequel to my book and getting ready to drop the digital version of Six Gears for the people. My builds have been put on hold because of the current state of affairs, and when things get back rolling, I'll be moving my business into a new facility.

Besides that, I'm keeping an eye on a few properties in L.A., so when the time comes, I can get a single family home in a neighborhood I'm fond of. They don't come cheap.

And last but certainly not least, continuing to pray for us all - the hidden racist, sexist, and other biased-ist folks included, whoever they are.

Oh, and debating if I should go buy my son and my nephew new dirtbikes to add to the collection. We'll see.
Yeah, I'll go ahead and use my human factors background to assume it's hoarding. While it is possible that he was buying for elderly neighbors, it was statistically much more likely he was hoarding.

But I digress...

Been working from home for about a week now.

My entire industry has pretty much shut down or will be in the next couple of weeks. At our built in cash burn rates, nobody survives beyond a couple of months in that condition.

They have completely shuttered the strip in Las Vegas, which is something even 9/11 couldn't do. It is surreal to see it completely empty. Of course there were the subsequent 450,000 layoffs that occurred immediately as a result. Some are getting paid, some aren't.

So far, I have a job, but I have no idea for how much longer.

There are multiple exceptions in Ohio: work at "essential" businesses, going to the grocery, gas stations, church services (if they are still having them), helping others. The cops apparently can give you a ticket if you don't have a legitimate excuse, but I think they are also practicing "social distancing" and minimizing interaction.

I've still got a son and daughter in college in FL (about 3/4 of the students left when given the chance - school switched to on line classes); they didn't close because they have quite a few foreign students who couldn't return home. Assuming the school manages to stay open until the end of the semester in May, we'll see how difficult it is for them to get home.

Those restrictions are similar, but more lenient, than those in California right now. All church services are cancelled due to group size restrictions. I feel the same about the police out here as well. I go on walks often to avoid going crazy and I just don't see them breaking up large groups and enforcing social distancing measures. But, then again, that seems difficult to enforce.

I know it's tight/hard for some, especially in California. I keep in touch with all my friends there; the ones barely making $20/hour all the way to the ones raking in, well, let's just say it's a pretty hefty sum of cash. Some are worried about their jobs while others have had to file unemployment claims in the last few weeks.

I'm blessed to have a residual income from book sales keeping 100% of the proceeds - you know, that Nipsey Hustle/Master P/Independent type of ownership. I've released the eBook/digital copy, so now... And, the sequel will be dropping sometime in the not so far future. Iíve learned a lot form the first one, and the second is going to be that much better. I'm planning to structure a workforce for my business with everything I have going on. I'll have a bunch of positions to hire people.

I used to want to shine for this company or that manager, and then I realized, I was blessed and given gifts by God to become much more. I finally got to see why I had hiccups in so many large companies. It's due to politics where people see you can outshine them.

Time to be an economic engine. Well, that's if what the Lord has planned for me.

Be blessed, folks.

That's pretty similar to Nevada. I think we also have restrictions on groups more than 10 also.

Colorado's order starts in the morning. Similar restrictions, so I dont see why I can't keep going out to my storage unit to work on the CB, or go for solo drives in the mountains if joggers are still allowed in the parks.

Got a 'hall pass' of sorts from work in case I get pulled over going to or from.

Looks like I'm getting back into video gaming soon, though. Been thinking about ordering an RC car to entertain myself as well.

I think the idea is just to enforce personal space. Obviously people need to eat, and at least here, they have encouraged us to do what we want, as long as we maintain social distancing.

I think they closed some of our parks (with like play equipment and stuff), but a lot of the trails and such are still open. Probably nothing wrong with working on your car or going for a drive. I don't see how that puts anyone at risk.

I work in health care so I'm unaffected. In fact our organization has hired more people since this "crisis" has begun.

We in Montana have had some services shuttered basically the non essentials. 1 week of mainly social distancing with school closures, and now a week of only essentials. Although it looks to be getting stricter as time progresses.

I'm not quite working from home yet as I'm a system administrator in IT. I almost have everyone else working from home and other remote ways of interacting with patients setup. Once this is all finalized, I'm packing up and working from home myself. I basically don't leave my office during the day unless it is mandatory to do so. I have the help desk people doing all of the equipment swapping and shuffling. Sadly though no one in our department wants to work anywhere outside of our little confined area of the building.

Yet another worry is that my wife is 3 months pregnant as well, which makes matters all that much better.

The one worry that I have, is that eventually we will be restricted in travel, meaning no more driving for the joy of it or much of anything else.

Stay safe guys!

Remember the basics, worry less




The streets aren't very empty right now. It's reassuring, in a way.

Well surely enough New Hampshire followed Massachusetts' plan and put a stay-at-home order in place. I was able to file for unemployment this morning so hopefully that fast tracks itself.

It's the first time I have ever been laid off from a job but the hunt continues for another one. Honestly, never in my life would I ever have imagined this much of crisis to ever occur. It hit me when I went to visit my fiance for dinner tonight at the local Whole Foods she works at, they had a line of people waiting to get in but they spaced them out by 6 feet while trying to limit the number of patrons going in and out of the store.

Yeah we've made jokes about it but I suppose it's the only way to kill the fear of it. The scariest part is the major damage it does your resparitory system especially if you're perfectly healthy..no one is immune.

I'm really hoping this boils over but who knows..only time will tell.

The infuriating part is that they knew how bad this was going to be but acted really slow to try and get ahead of it.

Some reassuring news:

For a variety of reasons, some of which I will share below, the US market indices rose a record percentage on Tuesday. For example, the S&P 500 was up over 11% in one day. This was then followed by another rise nearly half as large the next day. For those with money in the market that did not panic sell, this is good news for sure.

The number of daily case additions to the totals in both Italy and New York state are starting to decrease, or begin to level out.

Original worst-case estimates for death tolls in the UK appear to be a whole order of magnitude off, and the UK is reporting that they have more than enough ICU beds to meet the current and projected demand.
