You can easily work from home, yes?
 
Not as easy (smaller monitor etc.) but I get by. But we don't have much retail traffic (customers in the office) and only 3 humans max. most days. Our social distancing is baked in at this point. Plus it's easier to disinfect the office, so I really think going to the office is a better choice for me. If I get sick with anything, then sure.

A guy was in a couple of weeks ago just sneezing all over the place. Pre-corona, but still. Pissed us all off and we had to shove him out. Over time, we just sort of let people come in and hang out but that's done. There's a little more stringent rule in place about people coming into the back. We say the dog bit someone. Good dog. Kill.

I worry because of the many elderly in care facilities who depend on relatives visiting and advocating for them to receive proper care. 
 

Yes.  Good point.  I don't see any replacement or substitute for that.

I worry about my friends who work with seniors in the facilities / retirement communities.  If deaths accelerate in their work places due to coronavirus, how well will these people cope?

I live in the area where 100+ cruise passengers have been sent to A.F.B. for testing and quarantine.

1. Many were not tested before leaving CA
2. If they test positive, they are being transported to local hospitals.
3.  There aren't enough tests for the immediate medical community.
4.  There is not enough protective gear and equipment for local healthcare professionals.


My Mother is 82. As a widow of a disabled vet, she receives medical care through Military TriCare. She is now at a needed doctor's appointment, at the very base where the quarantine is currently underway.

Yesterday, Gov. Greg Abbott stated that the head of H.H.S. assured him that anyone that is not a Texan won't be released into the community. 



You're damn right I'm worried.

Did. They DID something right before it reached them. For the rest of us, that ship has sailed and we're now faced with mitigation.

In case you wanted to see what's possible when you combine planning, leadership, and facts/data, take a look at the steps taken and the results in Taiwan

Response to COVID-19 in Taiwan

Take a look at the supplement and the details of the steps taken.

If people work as hard and as smart as they did (and that included me working on New Year's Eve 31 Dec 1999-1 Jan 2000) in the years leading up to Y2K to prevent major issues (by screening for possible problem areas, offering best practices, remedies, etc.)...

I need to get off the internet because if I hear one more person equate "reasonable precautions" with "panic," I'm going to pick up a crowbar and start swinging.

AFW has her State Speech Meet starting tomorrow. I asked locally if it was going to be suspended and the coach said it hasn't been canceled and that the WHSAA site has a link to CDC's info page for some reassurance and what you can do. What that page says, right at the top: The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

So I said yeah but that doesn't protect the general population. She said one child has been pulled and that I can pull AFW and, now, she's a friend so I don't want to get huffy but it's not about my kid. It's never about "me." The system needs to get with the program.


Cancel Everything

Social distancing is the only way to stop the coronavirus. We must start immediately.

Unfortunate.  If you're into managing risk, Walgreens & other pharmacies sell disposable vinyl exam gloves in boxes of 50. We're in a state of emergency in Colorado, I wear them to the store etc.
