    Just found out that the person in my county that has been confirmed with the virus, lives on my street.

    People will do almost anything if they think they are getting a bargain. So they get the cheap flight, maybe discounted tickets and hey they are happy!! I am with you, get a grip.

    Which ones did you get? I literally was googling this earlier. I was thinking Pothos just because I kill everything green thing I've ever touched and this one looked a bit more durable than some. Another was the snake plant but I wasn't sure I liked the look of it. I have a black thumb. LOL

    don't read things that give you stress?
    If we all did this, Websleuths would shut down.

    It was third hand - a friend told a friend that told a family member of mine.

    We had our afternoon update. 16 cases now & one patient is near death but has preexisting conditions.

    One good thing, if a person in KY tests positive & are told to “isolate” at home until they are negative, they can be “policed” if necessary, to ensure they remain in their home.
    FYI one positive KY patient had to be “forced” into quarantine!

    Oh, my Dad is going to love that (sarcasm). He’s such a social being - 83 years old and out and about nearly every day of the week. Still, whatever it takes to keep him safe. I’m sure you’ll feel the same about your own parents, @gregjrichards

    Another great idea! I was thinking I don't really need anything from local shops right now, but I could use a plant.

    Awesome. Thanks.

    I'm very concerned about people having to stay home for months on end. Yes, I know it's better than going out and risk getting infected, but isolation for that long is.....hard.

    Had a friend that got lucky at Walmart, ordered and picked up a couple disinfectants and handsoap refills and cottonelle wipes at the order online to pick up app. She was thrilled they still had some petfood items. Might try that . Best to you and your family and community. Be Well

    I've seen mention of using our district buses to deliver lunches to students if we close. It's a small district so really would be doable. I work at the high school so if we close I may be facing a bit of a financial dilemma (as many many others).... But I'm also a bus driver and would be the first to step up to help our kids!

    The worst with mine is that her father is at risk with age, a chronic illness, and a recent surgery that put him in ICU with complications. He works with the public six days a week. I know that it's not even crossed her mind that he's at risk. All I can do is pray, and plan on being there for her when whatever's coming, gets here.
