Daugters boyfriend is having issues with the amount of peeps in his large local home store. Saying people need to buy a tape measuee to see what 6 feet looks like and how whole families come in just to browse. 

Stuff like this really irks me. Some people are required to go to work, or if they don't go, they lose their income. I get that and totally sympathize, and what makes it worse is these folks are probably terrified of getting sick since they're working retail and in contact with a lot of people every day. Groups of people coming in to just browse and kill time are not only wasting employee time, they're potentially asymptomatic carriers. I know grocery store employees, Target, WalMart etc. are there because they sell foodstuff. Now isn't the time to wander the store looking for a new curtain pattern IMHO.

100% agree with you. I go to the grocery store to get what I need.... as fast as I can, and get the hell out. I don't know why anyone would just mill around a store, knowing what we know.

I had to go out to the store to get supplies to make chicken and penne in vodka sauce for the guys in my firehouse. I not only cook 90% of the meals I eat at home and cook for the guys at work too.

I’m longing for the days when we can return to group meals. We have to maintain 6-10’ distance while on shift all 24 hours. We’ve adapted that where we each handle our own food.

It may sound like nothing to some but eating the same meal as a crew is sacrosanct.

But while I felt like we were "prepared" ourselves, I couldn't prepare for how others have reacted.


This should be saved as a sticky post at the top of this thread. While some may disagree, this IMO is the reason why were in for a longer bout of this pandemic.

... Doing some research and background for Chicago Fire we were invited to a Fire House and that was one of the things I got to see and learn from you guys. It was very important to morale and something that brings everyone together, like our football team training table with a lots of camaraderie so I got it right away. I know you aren't complaining but just the same sorry for your troubles while you are keeping the rest of us safe.

I’m glad to hear you could do that. My wife and I love the Dick Wolf series and I remember you mentioning your last role as a Doctor on PD.

The meals are so important for crew integrity. Some may say “what is the big deal about eating together?”

Eating as a family is precisely that, a family meal. We get to talk and joke, it helps us reduce stress and more than anything, builds community. We can see who is thriving and who is having a tough day and we all can pick each other up when life gets tough.

We are not to go outside of our stations  and are not to eat out. We are on SOP #8 since this started and it is getting annoying. Our station being EMS has the most in it and we distance as much as we can but all the charting computers are in one room so we have no real isolation areas. The station and ambulances are by far cleaner than they have been maybe ever which is nice because even our lazy guys are cleaning.

Nothing makes a Sr Engineer happier than assisting with medic cleaning / inventory days

The only good news about that is.... it is Star Wars day...

And I’ll be re-enlisting for 6 years on that day... yes I did that on purpose.

May the 4th be with you.

Saw that as well. More workout time for me in my garage gym without worrying about being too sore for golf.

I'm anticipating Michigan isn't going to be far behind in announcing something similar. We are currently all closed until April 12, but peak cases here are not expected to hit until later on in April.

I'm expecting at least two or three local courses will not make it through this year should no golf stretch too far into summer.

Well worth watching. A no nonsense description of COVI19 and how it kills.

Our initial stay at home order was through the entirety of April. I've mentioned it a few times that we support a few of the local courses (they're managed by the same company) and I'm fairly certain none of them make money. Land is obviously a premium here and the cost of living makes it hard for folks to be able to pay these private courses $65-90 a round. I hope they make it...

I have a three month membership at a club in the Florida panhandle.  It technically ended on March 31.  I went to the club today and talked to the pro.  The club has automatically extended all three month memberships to April 15.  After that date, they will allow golfers to go month to month at a prorated amount.  The pro said there are quite a few others in the same boat as me.  Snow birds (I've been here since December 30) who don't want to risk travel.  Nice the club is accommodating.  Of course, it doesn't hurt to have us renting carts and push carts.

So since this thread is here I will ask it:

 

Does anyone know some who has or has had it?

 

I have one FB friend who has. I have never met her face to face but her illness is well documented given that she writes for the Wall Street Journal. She is well on her way to recovery.

 

I have a Parishioner who was exposed by two guys who had it - both quickly recovered and we have played golf since he got off quarantine. He never developed symptoms.

 

I know two other people who knew people who had it. All were quarantined. Neither got it. But sadly one of the connected people, a 52 with co-morbidities, has died.

 

Spent a day in an ER with Penny last week. It was the scariest thing that I’ve ever done and I’ve done some stuff including CPR on people who were alive and died and cutting a guy who hung himself,down.
