there was a large gathering(14k) at a mosque a few weeks ago that triggered a surge in cases. before that things were pretty quiet.

going to try and get my visa extended. i do not want to have to go back to the states in may.
holy shit, wow.

I'd be torn between wanting [irresponsible] freedom in the US and wanting to be somewhere they're taking things seriously

Are you referring to the freedom to move about as you wish amidst the current pandemic or freedom in some more general sense?

We had to move out of my parents house. We managed to do it in 4 days, start to finish. One of my friends has two doctors for parents - they've worked in NZ hospitals a lot and she had some very bleak things to say about how well we can handle bad outbreak. Her parents went into self isolation last week....so when she said that on Saturday I knew we had to start looking for any place we could find, to move out into.

We're renting (again), paying too much (again), it needs a lot of maintenance (again) but my parents can now properly self isolate. They're in a high risk category and I just wanted them to not leave the house and have nobody coming into the house. We're going to leave anything they need in their garage.

The place we're renting is partly furnished and under what will be my bed, I found an empty condom wrapper

I was sad and disgusted. But you know, on the plus side I still have to go in to work, so I'm too exhausted to cry about it. This week has felt about a month long. My husband's working full time from home and trying to help the kids with their online school work. Everything's just in survival mode until the weekend....lego and boxes and books and pots and musical instruments are just strewn everywhere, everybody living off packet noodles and muesli bars and apples

Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus

I'm sure all the nutters across the flat earth are resting snug in their beds after a former UK PM recommended the start of a New World order as a result of this global conspiracy/"pandemic"

Someone at my mom's senior citizens' residence now has it.

Staff in contact with them have been sent home, all occupants are in their rooms in protective quarantine, where their meals are now served, the building is being disinfected daily, workers are wearing masks and gloves.

Hoping it will be enough.

Turns out that freedom is a bit of a double-edged blade and the United States is well on its way to becoming the worst affected country on the planet.

I've been a very good girl and haven't walked more than a mile from my house since the 15th and that's only been to get groceries and essential items. i was torn about walking to get my medicine or ordering it online.

other than bars and restaurants, anywhere i ever go is "essential" and still open so my life is continuing pretty normally, sans meeting up with friends indoors, other than the one that has been doing work with me. life here is pretty socially distant pandemic or not. my wife is only working every other day so that's nice

somehow our milk has lasted way longer than usual. it says sell by the 14th, but i keep sniffing it and it smells fine! wth

typically i find it stinky after just a few days from the sell by date (weirdly, sometimes before), but i wonder if it's because we are not usually opening it daily, which we are doing now.

it's a half gallon and we recently bought a whole gallon because we assumed the half gallon would be bad soon, but now we have to hurry and use it before the whole gallon goes bad! but hopefully the whole gallon has the same "problem"

i'm gonna have a huge glass of chocolate milk tomorrow

I work for a supermarket chain. I'm lucky to still be working but it's overwhelming. I spend all day every day dealing with product shortages and problems with getting the massive food orders from manufacturers to our doors. There is still plenty of food. But at this point it's nearly impossible to move it fast enough. Our store employees are doing an amazing job and taking huge health risks just showing up to work. Those of us in the office are working 12 or more hours per day every day seven days a week trying to keep things running.

So many of the people I work with are out in stores every day right now. And I worry about them and can't stop thinking about whether some of them will be dead by summer.

Re-entering this thread to say I was wrong, and stupid. Mostly ignorant. This is much worse than I could've ever imagined.

Nothing much to add. Just want to apologize for being an ass, especially to Run to Me and to reprise, for pooping in her thread.

I hope everyone is safe and doing okay. Except yo soy.
