Working from home for the foreseeable future, with the office closed and everyone else doing the same. Jude had his last day at nursery yesterday and Ivory-Rose is at school until 3pm (2 hours from time of writing), then she's out.

The figure floating around is 12 weeks, which didn't seem so bad at first until I checked the calendar and realised that takes us to the middle of June!

Scoffed at all the people panic buying/stockpiling early on, but now of course there is nothing left for sensible people. Wife has had to run out to the supermarket first thing while I setup my desk for work each morning. The only way we can get what we need is to be the first in and head straight for the item in question.

That's the spirit Stojke :) Face this thing with no fear!

Good luck finding groceries Urban for you and your family. Potatoes last forever and are cheap. I was able to nab a huge bag along with a few other things.

Bruce, you will most certainly die.

I'm staying isolated and indoors, obsessively washing my hands and only eating food that I've prepared.
So the same as it's always been. :P

Seriously though, I'm remaining cautious. My brother has asthma, and my mum wouldn't fare well with any sort of infection, so I am being vigilant about hygiene on the rare occasions when I need to go out.
Luckily my job can be done from home, so I haven't left the house since Monday. I'm nearly through my backlog of records to listen to.

Doing pretty well over here.
I'm having "online" classes (where teachers just send us PDFs and Word documents of lessons), and washing my hands slightly more frequently.

Since I'm in a village and pretty much nobody is visiting us, the chance of getting infected is a bit lower here, but despite that, I'm still a worried for my grandma and my parents. Especially my grandma.

And since I get to stay at home more, I decided to use the bike a bit more often. :P

Lol TJB, my wife made a comment too that they are now "promoting" my life style I already lived.

That's cool Admer, glad you're getting some exercise during this crap.

Most of us are young enough to not become seriously ill from COVID-19, but our parents won't do so well if they're hit.

Unless you're living with your parents, you should NOT visit them. Check in on them via video chats instead.

We had multiple Zoom meetings with friends yesterday, and we played charades over the video with another family. It was quite fun!

The groceries shortage was amusing at first, but now it's just annoying.

I agree to not visit my parents Satchmo.

In my city, the industry I work in was designated "essential" so I still have to go into work as normal. Traffic is nice...

I've been in quarantine for 2 weeks now. Where I live, we need a "statement on your own responsibility" that the thing you go out of your house for is justified. Ex: groceries, a short phyisical activity around your home etc. Initially this was imposed by our government only between 10PM-6AM, but people just didn't realize the gravity of the situation and gov realized it had to impose stricter rules and enforce them with the police and military.

I'm doing fine myself, I just fear for my parents who are more vulnerable than me. I'm working from home. Otherwise, I just feel like taking a break from all this imaginary rat race. It's really nice for a change. Eh, maybe I'm a little sad for all the gym progress I've had these months that's going to be lost. I'm trying to compensate with the little I can do in-house.

@Striker Dont' worry about gym progress, that can all be replaced. Life is too short to worry about short term body progress. You're smater than that! I'm sure this will all come to pass soon. I lknow, it sucks as a used to be gym rat because the progress doesn't come easy. But don't worry. Just because you lose "some" progress. The trainging doesn't yield "nothing". You're body will be stronger naturally.

I never thought I'd see a global pandemic cascade, let alone create one...

Wait Archie, what are you implying?

Chinese conpiracy? Oh, c'mon. I am isolated, I am C19 positive and I will win the fight for sure. Take care of yourselves, please, don't be stupid and remain at home. This is a SARS virus, is a badass little bitch that'll keep us busy until we find a proper vaccine and treatment, until then, please, be careful my friends.

My grandfather has apparently both had a heart attack and tested positive.
I'm staying hopeful but preparing for the worst. :\
