Curious as to how everyone is coping with this and in particular your personal neck of the woods?
For me, I'm still going to work although I'm certain my company has contingent plans should things affect us for the worse. But for now I'm still going to work.
Grocery shopping yesterday and it's amazing how people have totally gone bonkers. Whole shelves cleaned out of basic food items. No milk in the store I was at, although they did have a couple pallets of Toilet Paper in the aisles and it was starting to go fast. This is a local grocery chain unique to my town and the check out gal stated that before the run on supplies started the average checkout price per person was $50 and the last couple days it was $350. Good for the store profit but just more panic buying. The stuff is literally flying off the shelves faster then they can get more back in and stocked. People are nuts !!!
Historic stock market swings, damn.... more panicking idiots. I was hoping to retire within the next 5 years and I still hope to. My 401k has taken a beating as has everyone's. Trump's opinion is that when we get a handle on this thing and are getting close to a vaccine that the markets will take off in a big way, hope so....

Yeah, its crazy. I had 2 tickets to go to paris on april 4, cost me like 2400 dollars. You call Expedia and its always down or the wait time is like 6 hours. Am still going to work although they made 2 shifts now so the people are less together.
I think if your a small business owner you have every right to be concerned. However, Congress will due right and pass this stimulus bill and get the immediate funds to business owners and employees to sustain them thru the worst of this.
I have been told my company is shutting down Fridays till further notice and personnel that can work from home are encouraged to do so.
Never argue with an idiot, they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Yeah things are looking kind of bleek at work. Hope I still have a job in the near future.
I have faith in God, a great president, and the best minds on earth working day and night on this problem. This "plague" will be short-lived.
Absolutely we'll beat this thing. Now there saying there have been some promising results with treating coronavirus with a malaria drug which is already FDA approved and been around for some time, so its safe.
