The Bundesliga was cancelled yesterday afternoon, after a lot of backlash.

In Berlin, all non-food establishments like bars and pubs will be mandated to close beginning Tuesday night. Why Tuesday night and not earlier? Well, because first the Berlin Senate will need to meet Tuesday morning to pass some emergency laws that will allow them to mandate the closure.

Disgusting "humans". I'm sure many are doing this, it's a new version of looting. Hopefully karma gets them if nothing else does first.

Applause for the NBA players who are donating to help pay arena employees.

Why can’t the billionaire owners cover the costs ? I’m glad the players are helping out but come on

And it’s looking like the White House and Mar-a-Lago are the ground zero in the states....

You'd think just out of love for his wife and kids Trump would get tested. But, um..and I could be wrong but I believe Melania and Barron live in a separate wing of the WH. But I assume there is still contact.

Trump is treating his own testing and possible positive test the way he treats everything else-denial, lying, wishing. CNN said it changed again overnight and he's not getting tested.

Horrible role modeling and completely irresponsible as our "President".

Majority have committed to pay part time employees through the end of the month. Some of the players have decided to donate themselves just as a good will gesture.

Many of these owners are also very much asset rich and cash poor - not an excuse for them, but more than you would think are reliant upon the incoming cash flow of the teams and arenas to make budget. Their status as billionaires is more in the valuation of the franchise and less in their actual bank account.

And yes, some are just assholes. I'm not saying who, but their name may rhyme with Blames Strollin'

Stay safe LN7!

All Canadians have been told to return home.

I wouldn’t be surprised if our border is closed by early-mid next week.

And the Mexicans will finally be thankful for that wall...

Everything is pretty much as normal in Chicago. Grocery store was a bit low on some things but no evidence of manic behavior anywhere.

Trump was tested today. I'm at the point where I doubt we'd be told if he was positive.

I literally can not purchase toilet paper.

We had to get this off of Amazon. I may have to sneak into the office this week and steal some rolls.

Stay safe, folks.

What annoys me the most is that in Brooklyn, other than depleted grocery stores, it seems like a lot of people are still living life as if nothing is happening - crowded restaurants, definitely no social distancing happening. It sucks because we will pay for it in a week or two.

The big park a few blocks from me was jammed up. A friend who lives near a popular street for bars said they were packed last night.

We're destined for the same fate as Italy, Spain and France.
