Reports & check ins in the age of Covid
« on: March 16, 2020, 08:46:18 AM »
I've started a check in thread with my family, as I'm sure many of u have.
It occurred to me, we might also benefit from a 'check in' and reports from different parts of the country.

please check in if you start to feel bad, have any local stuff to report, like if you go out how is the social distancing working? are people complying?
how is traffic comparatively (it's usually XXX, now it's YYYY for example)

I need to go out today for pet food and milk. I will report on life in the Mission Valley area of San Diego ;)

i'm also hearing the National Guard is being called up. I can only assume to enforce the social distancing. I don't know if that's only the Cali guard or nationwide. i assume the new york state is in the same mind set

I haven't heard about the National Guard being called up in California.  But outside of Martial Law being declared, the military does not have police powers in the US.  So they can't even do anything like enforce social distancing.  What the military can do in the US is help out.  If this was a flood, they can rescue people.  Up in Washington where the National Guard is already out, they are delivering food.  Even in the widely publicized deployment of the National Guard to the border, the jobs they did were clerical and support to free up civilian border agents.  The military is not allowed to do civilian border enforcement.

It really pays to look on the bottom shelves when at the grocery store!!
I was able to find both milk and chunky peanut butter just because I looked on the bottom shelves!

The Publix grocery store I was in today, has stopped having sanitizer sheets at the door. Instead, they have employees sanitizing the carts from stem to stern. That delayed getting a cart, yet it seemed like it was a good idea.
It is 2021 and I am still asking...where's my flyin' car??!!

That's what my Costco did last week.  They wiped down carts at the door.  The problem I had with that was that I wanted a wipe so that I could go get a cart without touching it.  What's the point of them cleaning a cart if you have to touch a dirty cart to bring it to them.  They wouldn't give me a precious wipe.  So I used a napkin I had as a shield.  She saw that and said I could have just asked for a glove.  Why didn't she offer that when she turned me down for a wipe?

It's more than that.  It's a shelter in place order.  It's a lockdown.  Just like in China and Italy.

Yes, we just heard that. My son has wisdom teeth removal (read, elective medical surgery) scheduled for April 6, so I just got off the phone with the oral surgeon, rescheduling for June.

Everyone in the Bay Area has until midnight to go out and do things that are 'non-essential'.

That's probably going to be a major cluster that I'm going to pass on.

My dad (80 years old in April) has a sore throat, fever, and cough. He is staying home.

I had a cough a few days ago, but it is better today.

I'm in San Diego, and I work part-time as UCSD.  I got word this morning that two UCSD health workers tested positive for Covid-19.  UCSD Health is doing everything they can to track who had been in contact with those two employees. 

My first reaction was "Yikes!"  That's too close to home.  Thankfully, I don't usually have to venture out to the "main" or central campus area (because of where I work at UCSD, ha ha), and all the classes I teach have been cancelled or moved to online-based platforms as of last Friday (yes, the 13th, ha ha).  All I can think about is what a close call that is...

Stay safe, and stay vigilant about hygiene, everyone. ♡
