that's insane. my company has had a "self-isolation" category of leave since late january (the head office is in australia), 15 paid days that don't count against sick day entitlements or vacation.

i'm pretty sure that nobody will be going into the office and we'll all be indefinitely working from home starting monday anyways. entire floors in bank towers here in toronto's financial district are being put into quarantine at this point. the trading desk of one of the major banks is forbidden from contacting any other bank employees face-to-face during their work day and they have their own separate entrance to the building and elevator.

of course for the general public there are no precautions are being taken aside from there now being a few extra purell dispensers in the tunnels that go between the office towers downtown and some new signs in public bathrooms that explain proper hand washing.

There was a case of coronavirus in a shared building that we rent from and they still haven’t told everyone in the company yet

global pandemic

Just listened, sort of, to the Oval Office address.

Relieved to know our UK friends are immune, unlike their filthy Continental neighbors.

Still have the energy to work on the album I’ve been making over the last year and some change despite the overtime. But we are relatively young (early-mid 30s) so we are probably in the clear from severe stuff. But we are doing our part staying out of the public.
Take care. I hope it's just the regular flu for you and that you and your family will be well soon.

And now one of Juventus' players has tested positive... That's probably the last football we will be seeing for a good long while.
As of last night, this Champions League season may as well be cancelled.

Things aren't as dire (yet) here in Australia but it's got to the point where I'm becoming reluctant to go to places/events unrelated to work/basic necessities.

I don't have much faith in our government to manage this competently when it escalates.

Two people at CBS News have tested positive. Their NYC broadcast center is closed for disinfecting, they just announced this live on CBS morning show. Don't know where they're broadcasting from now.

Hope you'll be negative and be ok during your quarantine.

Amazing how many emails I've gotten since last night titled "A message about Covid-19" or similar.
Got them from airlines, rental car companies, my credit cards, CVS, Broadway in Boston....

So I'm not officially quarantined - I'm kind of in a wait and see pattern right now.

We played Utah 2 weeks ago and I was on that road trip. I had no interactions with the player in question, but I've had interactions with our players and staff since then. It was 14 days ago so within the recommended quarantine time but outside the transmission time - so I'm just kinda hanging around the house waiting for someone to tell me what to do.

I'm sure Mrs. Headache can give you a list of things to do.

While I don't disagree with Trump that the response in Europe hasn't been great, it's still (mostly) better than what the UK has done.
Which is again better than what the US has done.

Same here. I got the Broadway in Boston too, honestly I can't believe they're continuing with performances.

The Celtics are self quarantined, they played Utah last Friday. I hate to say it but I think many of their players would test positive.
