    My parents’ county in CO is doing a study starting this week w/a biotech company who has a blood antibody test. They are sheltering in place, everyone in county will be tested this week , then tested again in 14 days. It’s fascinating. I think everyone’s hoping they test positive both times b/c that would mean they’ve had it and possibly some immunity. I am so curious to find out once this is all in our past if they find out this thing has been circulating a lot longer than we think. I know many people (including myself) who think it’s possible they had it in the fall or winter. The research will tell us so much!

    LAURA GAO.....supports no cases in Wuhan right now....read below.

    Laura Gao ✌️ on Twitter


    1/ Got on a phone call with my grandparents in Wuhan tonight. Asked them how things were holding up now that the things have improved alot for the city. Here's some cool findings
    2/ While Wuhan city proper is still in lockdown, people are allowed to take walks outside only within their own "neighborhood". For context, most people live in "neighborhoods" comprised of several high rise apartments in a compact area w/ a shared green space (see pic). Laura Gao ✌️ on Twitter
    3/ My relatives who live in a rural town within Wuhan area but not in city proper said surrounding areas with no sick cases are now allowed to walk outside freely. Transportation to and from these areas has opened again but under heavy inspection and scrutiny.
    4/ I asked how they get supplies as two 80-yo who cannot leave the apartment. They said the govt has assigned an official for each "neighborhood" to be a supply runner. They take grocery orders from everyone via an online form, buys them at the supermarket, and delivers them.
    5/ While supplies aren't rationed (ppl can buy as much as they want), to max efficiency, supermarkets have created grocery bundles that ppl can only buy. If someone has a special request for an item not in the package, they have to add it in the form (e.g. extra meat, a snack).
    6/ My grandparents are tech-illiterate so my uncle helps fill out their online form. The govt official assigned to their "neighborhood" also has their phone # and will call frequently to check in. He not only does supply runs but can order taxis ASAP if they need medical care.
    7/ Fun fact: Because all taxis are state-owned and all public transportation is shut down, the govt has repurposed all taxis as emergency vehicles to drive people to the hospital during quarantine.
    8/ Many relatives have not worked for 3 months now bc of quarantine. They said the govt mandated employers must still pay salaries while they're in quarantine. As a reaction, some employers are requiring workers to make up this pay once they come back... effectively a loan.
    9/ Lastly, my grandparents heard about the overwhelming support from Twitter about the Wuhan comic and wanted to say thank you for thinking of them and their city! They constantly have neighbors asking how their family in the US is doing. Goes to show how selfless ppl are :)

    It's unfortunate leaders in such highly populated areas haven't issued shelter-in-place orders.

    Everyone who travels needs to do 14 days immediate self-isolation, no grocery shopping on the way home.

    Gas Buddy reports my station is at $2.13, but I paid $2.50 yesterday because I don't put ethanol in my car.

    GEORGIA......WHY??

    Rest areas on highways throughout GA remain open. Restrooms will be regularly deep cleaned throughout the day between the hours of 7am-11pm. The lobbies of Georgia’s 9 Welcome Centers are closed until further notice, but outside restrooms will remain available at all times. Georgia DOT on Twitter

    For some reason, when I try to access this thread a screen pops up and blocks all but one member’s comment. Sometimes there is an arrow by the user name that allows me to escape the window but not usually.

    Does anyone know a way around this?

    while it is nice in theory it is impossible to monitor or enforce.

    CT - How a Hotspot Developed from a Dinner Party - 41 Cases now in Westport CT

    From the Ground: What IMO was absolutely stunning about this situation was that the State Board of Health Director when initially questioned by the Press about the dinner party knew NOTHING about it! Word hadn't made it from Westport to Hartford it appears and seemed to take them 4-5 days to figure out what was going in Westport.

    No leadership from Hartford for the Southern Portion of the State which is so vulnerable. Towns are on their own to figure out how to cope and address the situation with COVID19.

    So sad to be watching this play out in real time.

    Personal update

    My daughter's continuous glucose monitor arrived today. I'm so happy, it should last 90 days. I did bring the box inside from the porch but I did it with plastic bags on my hands, and then wash them afterwards. I'm not going to touch again or open it until at least Friday to be safe.

    In other personal news my DH has to return back to work tomorrow evening (He's been on his scheduled days off since last Friday) He works at a food and feed processing plant so he is considered an essential business worker.

    His little "office" room has 8 guys in it per shift, so last week they started to find places to seperate them. They moved my DH into a broom closet. :cool: He still has to share it with the people from the previous/next shifts, but at least he isn't sitting next to 7 other guys for 12 hours during his shift. He does still has to go down into the actually plant at least 2-6 times a day to collect samples and there are still lots of people working on the plant floor.

    On one hand I'm happy that we still have a pay check coming and our medical insurance is safe, but on the other hand I hate that he has to leave the house, I want him to self isolate to keep himself safe but most importantly to keep our 10 year old T1D daughter safe. :(
