I think its time for us all to self-isolate

My work has gone to work-from-home starting tomorrow, indefinitely. The reasoning is we cannot control the large % of employees who are or will be travelling for spring break. I would be surprised if I am back in the office before Easter.

Has this affected your vacation plans?

I’m still assuming I’m going to be able to fly on Monday.

I'm going out to the Black Hills and Badlands next week. I'm assuming that's fine given how desolate those areas are.

I'm pretty happy that we purchased travel insurance on our trip to Mexico in late April

It comes down to personal choice. The area where we are going to is not affected so you have to weigh the benefits vs drawbacks. I am not, nor was ever concerned about contracting it (healthy adults/kids), the concern is more that you end up quarantined abroad and that sucks.

They have now shut down all schools in Ontario until April 5 - for the same reason. Most people will be traveling and they want everyone to self-isolate after returning. Since these broad measures are being taken anyway, we're all going to be quarantined one way or another.

Stay safe, everyone. What a clusterfuck of a country this is.

In a competent, caring, compassionate administration, this would be a no brainer.

But that's not the administration we have.

I received an email from Showcase Cinemas, the theater I always go to is a Showcase. In addition to all the cleaning and sanitizing they say they're doing they're decreasing theater capacity by 50% to allow space between patrons. Obviously a big hit for them financially, hopefully they haven't raised ticket or concession prices. Better than no people in the theaters.

It also said that anyone who is coughing or displaying other symptoms will be asked to leave.

Trump had direct contact with the Brazilian press secretary at Mar A Lago last weekend. He has tested positive.

So you get a little piece of that popcorn kernel skin caught in the back of your throat, cough and suddenly you don't get to find out if The Rock and Jack Black make it out of Jumanji in one piece?

That's right, no Jumanji for you! I think it would have to be obvious constant coughing. Someone would have to report it too. I miss going to the movies, but I think it will be a while before I go back. I still enjoy going to a theater, in spite of non virus annoyances.

Yeah I like going to the theater also, and the kid wants to see Onward. Just don't know about going currently. Maybe a matinee with a tiny crowd so we can sit with nobody in the vicinity.

My friend was exposed to it at a work conference and is quarantined and showing most symptoms. But because there is no cough, they will not test.
