If they’re still allowing take out/delivery hopefully that keeps some afloat. Also maybe the necessary gov agencies & private businesses that need to stay open can use them for catering/boxed meals or something. But yeah bars and restaurants are gonna be hit hard, hopefully banks and landlords work with them once this passes.

Edit: just saw this too

I just left a meeting with the city and this was conveyed to us as well.

Airport is crazy today. An Allegiant plane landed and the entire crew and passengers were immediately quarantined. A couple was just escorted out in hazmat suits. Passengers are freaking out.

I would imagine Italy is the example we'd be looking at.

Guys, a national quarantine is not a thing, nor it could it really be a thing.

A national lockdown, with curfews and strict closing times for certain types of business/official buildings (managed on the local level), and schools closed, and limits on things like domestic flights, could be a thing.

Yeah the full on lockdown/quarantine thing seems a bit like fear mongering. What you said is what it will/would be +/-.

Famous/well known people getting this will hopefully help the idiots realize they need to take this serious and stay inside as much as possible for awhile. horsefeathers thing to think and take away from seeing this but whatever, it probably helps.

Most of my extended family are of the "I don't give a rat's ass unless it happens to someone I know" ilk but might actually be moved by some (white) celebs/athletes disclosing positive tests and exhortations to do the basic things to minimize spreading this even more.

I'm not a peer, so my pop culture habits are of zero interest to them. If Tim Tebow went wild on social media extolling the virtues of staying home and washing hands, though, these people would fill their hot tubs with liquid Dawn, sit and soak in them, and watch reality tv 24/7.

OFC, instead, he is promoting the power of prayer. So, that's good, if you're so inclined. YMMV

not sure if this is what you're referring to or not...i hate the unmitigated disaster that is the trump administration, but that headline going around is a sensationalist approach, to say the least.



actual quote
President Trump told a group of governors Monday morning that they should not wait for the federal government to fill the growing demand for respirators needed to help people diagnosed with coronavirus.

“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” Mr. Trump told the governors during the conference call, a recording of which was shared with The New York Times.

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

All bars in New Orleans closed. Restaurants open for take out or delivery only and must close by 9pm. I have a feeling this is what a nationwide "quarantine" will look like.

I'm having an easily distracted day, so to at least attempt to be helpful I thought I'd put together some unsolicited advice about remote working for those of you who are new to working from home. I hope I've learned a bit from working at a 100% remote org for 7+ years, but as you'll see below your mileage may vary.

- Give yourself permission to adjust. Remote working is a change without the world being consumed by disease, and if you're juggling childcare, logistics for older relatives, etc there's a lot of stress to go around. It's likely you won't immediately be the picture of productivity. That's okay, and if you manage others in this situation please remember that too.

- Everyone is different. You'll hear a bunch of different suggestions(work in the exact same spot, get dressed for work, etc) and those round to being true for lots of people, but ultimately each person is productive on different terms. Some people need their specific office setup with 17 monitors and a vault door that seals them off to the outside world. Other folks gain energy from bouncing around the house or to different coffee shops as the day progresses. Some people need complete silence, other people are good with certain types of music, and others still like having something that can draw their attention like the TV. What works for you is often specific to you and/or the particular task you're on.

- Capitalize on momentum, and be productive when not. This might be role-dependent, but especially for individual tasks, we've all had days where we got a bunch done and others where you bang your head against the wall to get the bare minimum finished. Working remote can be great because you have productive outlets for those days where you struggle, whether it's loading the dishwasher, getting the mail, or straightening a room. On the other hand, your work environment can be important because you don't want those things calling your name while you find yourself in a good flow of productivity.

- Remote is a complete overhaul of how a company operates. This isn't up to you, but doing remote work well means the entire company embracing the things that it is and is not. Most partial remote setups are destined to fail or disenfranchise the remote folks, but the good news is a pandemic is pretty equal opportunity so you may have a fresh slate to avoid some pitfalls. You don't need a nanny state or an expectation of instant responses, but you need a higher degree of communication, and that communication should be written. The more you can push meetings and phone calls to be documents or more public chats, especially if you picked up a lot by osmosis when you were in the office, everyone's work life becomes easier.
