    What I find interesting about this "tele work" is that where I work only the most favored "pets" were allowed to telework. It was considered a status symbol.

    Now, we are told that if we go home for quarantine, pretty much, telework is expected. No thanks, I would rather have sick pay...but wait, you don't get sick pay, because you are not sick!

    My personal opinion of that in the words of the esteemed Colonel Potter..."Horse Puckey".

    I've seen zinc recommended a few times in this thread...

    DO NOT TAKE ZINC WILLY NILLY!!

    I can't stress this enough

    Zinc can be helpful in small doses but you can easily overdo it, which depresses your immune system and makes it more likely that you will be infected.

    15mg once if you think you are getting sick is ok, it's what my doc recommends, but if you want to take more, don't take it everyday and not for more than a week.

    Florida- Cluster of cases linked to Cruise Port
    in Ft. Lauderdale. 3 port employees positive.
    This is same employer that VP Pence visited
    last Sat. and held a press conference before
    the cases were announced.
    Was this a 'pre-emptive' visit to help cruise lines?
    Today, Pence announces extra efforts being made by Cruise Lines to make cruising safe.
    Why is our elected leader here giving positive
    PR for private corp. already hit by virus?

    Cinema chain's 'empty seat' policy to combat virus

    Northern Ireland's biggest cinema chain, Omniplex, is introducing a "seat separation" policy in response to coronavirus.

    That means that every second seat will be left unoccupied in a checkerboard pattern. Omniplex operates from 15 locations across Northern Ireland.

    Australia- There’s only one way to slow the rapid spread of COVID-19: avoiding each other. Now the virus is “loose” in Sydney, it is past time to take drastic, necessary action.

    Shut schools. Cancel events. Slow people down. Now. Our medical workers ability to save us depends on it. A fortnight ago, Italy was in a very similar position to our own.

    It quickly shut down flights to and from China. It isolated patients. It tracked down their contacts. Its government was loud in its confidence it had the virus contained. Meanwhile, COVID-19 was already quietly spreading out of control.

    It had a trick: it takes an average of five days before a victim begins to cough and feel symptoms. But, during much of those five days, that victim is infecting others.

    I really don’t see how they can go ahead as planned this summer.

    I had my husband pick up a couple of pounds of garlic over a week ago. I had a cold and eat masses of garlic then. lol I started with a list of basics too but then moved to bulk spices and things like lots of salsa etc. Yesterday at the store I was picking up extra chips, pretzels and then pudding and jello packets for my kids. I think our next shopping trip is going to be figuring out online shopping more. I might be in my early 40's but I seriously haven't figured out getting groceries delivered yet.
