    Now would be a good time for the US to plan to use military resources in our country to construct additional facilities to support the existing hospitals. I know we're not as equipped as China in this undertaking (building actual hospitals in days or weeks) but surely we have the necessary tents, equipment and organizational skills to get this in the works sooner, rather than later? IMO

    He said 14 days if it's the whole family in isolation - 7 days for the first person, then an extra 7 in case it's spread to the others.

    Just thinking the same thing.

    I don't drink but I do have two bottles in my garage frig. I might just pop one open before this is all over.

    I guess the best we can take from it is that the young adults that didn't listen in the beginning may now be seeing the light. Even if it's late, it's better than nothing.

    Our governors are turning out to be bigger heroes than I knew. Mine, is anyway. :)

    I've been using so much alcohol-based hand sanitizer that I think I may have caught a buzz. I accidentally got some in my nose the other day, and that was quite a surprise! ;)

    I recall seeing Dr. Fauci at the WH press conference, are you sure he wasn't there with the rest of the team?
    Talked to my brother last night, he lives in Edmonton. He is the VP of logistics for a company that transports goods and needs to work so that the supply chain stays open. He is very worried for his truck drivers - and his own family.

    I would think it's going to be dependent on what type of Federal office it is. How vital the work is on a daily basis? Is it work that can be done online from home?
    If not, how do they set it up so workers can safely continue necessary jobs? I doubt there is a "one size fits all" answer for this situation.

    Grateful to the NJ governor telling everyone to stop believing people who say it's not real. "To the folks who think it isn't real? I'm telling you - it's real."

    I see birthing centers opening in satellite surgical facilities when all elective surgeries are cancelled.

    Oh my.

    Maybe they could don Hazmat suits or dress in the outfits worn by the 'nurses' in the "Silent Hill" movie ?
    Might affect the 'ambience', though...
