Just wondering how many here are observing restrictions. If no restrictions in your area, there's a box for that, too.

I go to work, and go back home. The only other time I leave the house is to walk the dog (which is allowed under our rules) and a grocery trip.

I do not work. I stay home unless it's to go out for food. Feeling a little lonely because I used to go out every week to visit friends.

I'm thinking a lot of folks on this board have seen all the disaster movies & quarantine ;)

No option for those of us who have to go to work?

I went with the Yes, Essential Business option because going to work is essential

I get that, I think it should be its own separate category.  Possibly because I am curious how many of us have to go to work.

I think we need a new category, "Yes, I don't go out".

I'm on the 4th week of full lockdown.  I've only been out once for a quick run to the pharmacy.  I was on semi-lockdown for 2 weeks before that.  I only went out for essential supplies.  Now I don't go out period.  My feet only leave the house on trash day.

Thanks, guys. It's so encouraging to know I am not the only one taking this seriously.

I'm home with only one of the Onions and that makes me sad. I really wanted to go over and have our typical supper and game night and i was called out for being a hypocrite. Touche'! So i just dropped something off and waved ad talked to them from afar.

Work gave us a 2 week paid time off and now they want us back. I asked what happens if we get sick? We just used the 2 weeks we were supposed to use if we got sick. So we have to dig into PSL and vacation. Crossing fingers we don't get sick. One of my co-workers came down with a fever today!

Doesn't sound kosher to me. That two weeks would apply if your business was forced to shutdown due to government order. But if they're allowed to open back up now, then they should not have shut down in the first place (if they are essential now, they were essential then). They may be in for a rude awakening when they go to apply for their tax credit.
