TV's have electronic chips so you never know if they have any type of embedded code that could try to connect. probe and attack devices  like laptops, etc...One of my offices denied a pallet of Dell laptops because the supply chain couldn't be verified.

It could also be that many modern TV's are "smart" and could potentially provide a backdoor into a computer if they are connect to your wifi.

Well unfortunately I was right and now the whole state is shut down. Doesn't affect my job as I work in AG but all courses are closed down.

Just saw NY did the same thing.

 

Stay safe and healthy everyone!

We were all thinking this was our last day at work. We thought for sure Gov. Dewine was going to shut down everything non essential. We dodged that bullet... for now.

Unfortunately, the company laid off 4 people today. I was not one of them. I will probably be the last in the shop if it is to happen. This is particularly scary for us hourly workers.

 

Fortunately, I'm frugal with money, and I can last for probably a whole year. I don't relish the thought of using up what took me so long to save. I'm praying we all get through this without too much trauma. God bless you all.... and good luck.

The Governor of PA. shut down all golf courses. One of the better local course had come up with a way to play so no-one got near anyone. 1 person to a cart, pin stays in always, raised cup so ball doesn't drop, etc. and they had to stop that as of yesterday. Gonna be a long next few months.

Here in metro Baltimore the county run courses are closed at least until April 4th. The city courses have gone to lesser tee times so everyone has their own cart. As always walking is an option. I don’t know how long that will last.

Got a bit of good news bad news yesterday. Boss says he is gonna start staying home (He is 75) but apparently the HVAC and plumbing industry is considered essential so I can continue to work. Not sure how we are going to deal with going into peoples houses yet though.

 

The bad news is he just let us know that he hired a kid that recently got back from spring break in South Padre. Should be interesting considering our small business only has 8 current employees and only 2 of us are under 55. Personally I think the kid should be required to pass the Coronavirus test before coming to work and entering someone’s home but who knows what my boss will do. Until yesterday he kept calling all this a hoax!

... Wow, just wow. This country can be so frustrating. 3 states ordered not to leave their homes unless absolutely necessary and even then most everything is closed. Health care workers getting sick and some losing their lives is a hoax?!? The kid should absolutely take the test before potentially infecting others. Stay safe and please don't take any unnecessary chances.

Well, we're bailing from Florida tomorrow. We were meant to stay until Thursday but because everything is basically shut down, we were going to leave on Monday. I got a text from Southwest this morning that our flight had been cancelled because they've stopped flying to Chicago. So, I had to rebook the flight and if we didn't want to get home at about 1am in the morning we have to leave tomorrow. As it is we'll be getting home about 11.30pm tomorrow night.

Surprisingly my work still wants me to come in when my vaycay is over but my wife has already been told to self quarantine for 14 days when we get back...we both work for Summit County. Me in the Sewer department and her in Juvenile court.

Yeah as often as he kept saying it, it seemed like he was trying to convince himself of it. He is definitely one of them stubborn, set in his ways, old men yelling at clouds kind of guy. He was suppose to retire 5 years ago and turn the company over to his son but doesn’t seem to want to give up the power of being the BOSS!

We actually started using Lysol wipes on our hands and steering wheels after leaving costumers houses. The secretary is supposed to be asking if anyone has felt ill lately when taking calls as well.
Our main concern is with the lack of TP in stores that people will be using the flushable (which really shouldn’t be flushed especially if you have a septic tank) wipes as well as non flushable products and plugging their sewers. Luckily we have enough new house builds to stay busy that we shouldn’t need to go into someone’s house unless it is an emergency should it come to that.

With in-restaurant dining being closed, a lot of restaurants in my area are doing some cool stuff with takeout orders. Just ordered $100 worth of raw meat from Fogo de Chao that I will pickup. Will freeze some and cook some tonight.

First case in our county that we know of was put on the informational web site...

Worked at the hospital, not sure in what capacity... commuted in from DC area apparently.

We have enough food to last till March 31st... debating on whether I should venture out now before it gets worse, or wait. Either way I feel is bad, especially with the wife’s lung stuff already there.

Top it off with a call from the property management place for our condo saying “sorry you didn’t buy the trip insurance, so you can either come or lose your money.” “Everyone is still out and about”... but the restaurants are closed... who the heck would want to go there?

I know there are people how are affected far worse than I can imagine, and my prayers go out to anyone and everyone dealing with this terrible virus.

Thank a healthcare worker, even if from afar. Please do your part in slowing this beast down.

End rant.

Cheers everyone!

My daughter who also works in Juvey Court in CT been home since Tuesday. She and 3 others have to go in today to do reports that have to be done by state law. Then who knows.

... Fwiw, I think the entire country should have been put on lockdown which is the only way to stop the spread and flatten the curve. Obviously small rural towns unaffected by the virus could work around this but all the cities of any size should have been doing this all along. It is mind boggling that people are still going to beaches where crowds are incubating the virus then spreading it all over the country when these people go back home, especially those showing no symptoms but spreading the virus.

...I went out for the first time in the Chicago suburbs yesterday to stock up with some produce and other food at Whole Foods and wore surgical gloves, kept my distance and touched nothing I did not need to touch and threw the gloves out when I got home. Interestingly about 10 people wore masks which I would have if I owned one, an about 10 others wore gloves. But by and large most people acted like there was nothing different going on, crowding together and not keeping 6 feet spacing, touching their faces and many surfaces. People ... sigh. I hope everyone here is using common sense and staying safe.

There are pics of New York floating around from yesterday with very large gathering of people out and about with no distancing at all. Gov Cuomo was not happy about it.
