First confirmed case at my kids school, one of her acquaintances that luckily she hasn't seen much of for a few weeks so odds are low but if it's at a school it could be anywhere by now. We're sitting here this Monday morning trying to figure out what is the best plan of action. Me and the kid still have lingering symptoms from a cold (?) three weeks ago, but nothing new. According to the government we should "self monitor" but no need to "self isolate". We don't want to panic but don't want to spread it either if there's a chance. Unfortunately working from home is impossible in the construction industry and if I don't go out the guys don't work either, times like this I hate being responsible for three families income.

If I took some time off though I could really do some spring training and get my disc golf swing to progress to " summer" speed quicker. Or throw a few hundred putts a day...

You know it never fails for me, if I have a shower in the morning it's like guaranteeing "late returns" ... about 15 minutes after I get out.

We have a confirmed case here at work. My department is all working from home, but I can't so I'm here.

They told us to self-quarantine at home, and limit trips to just back and forth to work. I don't usually go out to eat or drink so it's actually pretty easy for me.

It's mind blowing how widespread the ripple effect is gonna be. The need/desire for social distancing/avoiding crowds is affecting sooo many people and industries, and not just financially:

Restaurants, bars, hair salons, houses of worship, funerals, weddings, anything and everything related to travel and tourism, schools, professional seminars, factory jobs, mass transit in towns where people depend on it like NYC, DC, Chicago, movie theatres, any # of sports and concert events, gyms...

Who knows what I left out?

Let's pack the country with entitled city dwellers with unsocialized kids.

Every man should have a gym in his own home.

Only men work out? I am overjoyed that my wife likes to exercise and stay fit.
Come on, man.

They certainly don't need the kind of socialization experienced in public school. Public school is just babysitting and free meals.

I definitely didn't say this. That would just make other cities bigger, which I'm also not endorsing.

A man and woman should live together in single family homes. My wife works out in my gym, too.

I'm still close with dozens of friends that I met in grade school. It's your opinion and you're entitled to it, but I think it's dumb.
