Community Covid-19 Check-in Post!

Monday, March 23, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: Everything Else

This is certainly an interesting time right now. I know many of us around the world are social distancing, self-quarantining, or whatever phrase you are using for it. 

So let's take a moment and check-in here and let the community know how you're doing during all this.

I've got a client who is in biotech.   Hope to get more ventilators out there.   A lot of this societal shutdown is throwing roadblocks our way, when we need to be working round-the-clock on overdrive.   And frankly, whatever they ask for, they should get it.

I've been practicing social distancing for 40 years or more so not much changed for me.

My wife drove the couple of hundred and a half miles north to Seattle to set her cousin up with needed services. Her cousin had fallen a couple of times and was diagnosed with early onset dementia. My wife will come home next week, if possible.

The regular miseries of the world continue behind the spotlight of the current crisis.

May we all be blessed.

All OK here at the moment. My wife and I are in our early 70's. We only go out when we have to plus our morning walk. We are a bit lucky because in early February we were on the Golden Princess doing  a cruise from Melbourne around New Zealand. That finished on the 12th of February. Our last port of call was Auckland. Before we docked the Captain announced that a new crew member had boarded at a previous port and was in quarantine and they had to get special permission for us to disembark. This was approved however when we got of all the port staff were in masks. A bit scary!

I got an email today from sViz. She was asking if I was ok.  Nice of her.  And she is ok too, guys!

My wife and me chose a bad time to move from France to Germany. Right now, we are living in a one-room apartment in Germany until we can get the removal company to transport our furniture across the border. But we are still in good health and the hotel keeps refilling the toilet paper. I only have my MacBook with me, so no GalCiv III for me right now...

Stay safe and healthy, everyone.

Tom, once this stuff passes and the governor says we can get out and about safely (i'm thinking in the fall), i may stop by for a brief visit if that's ok with you. i still want to help a certain person if you're still taking donations. you still live along the river, correct?

Fall?!!!!   I hope to hell this crap doesn't go on all summer.  It is my understanding that this virus will not survive heat, you know, like summer heat.  I saw a video from the CDC stating as much.

Most likely we are at risk at any time of the year before an effective vaccine is developed.

In Norway, liquor stores are open and business as usual. Pubs, restaurants, Burger Kings etc. are closed until further notice as with many other considerd non-essential businesses.

Burger King in Kristiansand is open for take out only....prolly Mac'ern as well. Kristiansand hasn't closed bars as far as I know (yet) but reduced skjenketid (pouring hours) .

 

Me? I'm staying home after Color Line layed me off (no one seems to be in the mood for a mini cruise to Germany?) Anyway travel is restricted so not much to do there. The whole family stays at home and gets on each others nerves. When it gets to bad we can safely take a walk in the woods nearby without meeting too many people so it's easy to keep a good distance.

Yep, I still live in the same place, and yes, the person needing donations is needed them more than ever right now. You stay safe!  Sent you a PM.

All is well here in SW Ohio. We stay in as much as we can. I am in an essential industry so i am working. Minimal contact with others. Everything we know as normal is turned upside down.

26th of March. So far so quiet. I am thinking of joining the volunteers. One of the tasks is just phoning people who are in quarantine and making sure they're okay.

All is copacetic. Very stringent measures being taken here. So, staying at home except for food shopping and the like, and trying to keep occupied.

Trying to find stuff you folks want to hear about, so pm me with special requests you might have.
