    But why do we need the fda, doctors and scripts? I know it all, I read it on the internet!

    If a little is good, more is better.

    Several states that issued the order allowed for family groups that reside at an single residence to go together, but it kind of defeats the purpose really. Just send one person to do an errand.

    I would like to stay home for a couple weeks, fortunately I am considered an essential career. I think some of the places I pick up in Manhattan will shutter in the next week or so sense they now have their first case as of Fri. So far out the dozen or so cities I run so far only have one case. Where we live are up to 4 at the moment but that is going to rise because one of them has proved to be from community spread. Times are really stupid at the moment.

    Just checking in here guys. This are about the same here in PA. Governor first shut down all non-essential businesses. Then several days later he shut down all non-life sustaining businesses. We somehow got an exemption and are still open. I guess it's all in who you know.

    The kids have been off school now for about 2 weeks. They are staying at home with the wife, who is a stay-at-home mom. So while I'm glad that I am still working and bringing home a paycheck, I pray everyday I don't being something home to them. The only way they are going to get sick is from me. They don't go out or interact with other people. But, gotta do what I gotta do.

    Stores were cleaned out initially. I saw it coming and grabbed a few last minute things we needed. Milk, eggs, etc. That held us for about 1.5 weeks. We can go much longer, but it's nice for the kids to have milk and OJ and things. So I stopped a couple days ago. Some things were still out. TP, eggs, etc. But most of what we needed was still there. Not as much selection as usual. And not a large stock, but we got most of what was on our short list.

    All in all, except for the kids being home, not much change for us. Actually, it just seems like summer vacation for us. Most events are cancelled. So the kids are missing baseball and YMCA stuff. But they are outside climbing trees, playing in the mud, and enjoying themselves. After almost two weeks, my wife just heard for the first time that one of the kids was bored. It was a rainy day and she didn't know what to do. So after some suggestions, my 9 year old made some cupcakes from scratch. So overall, they are doing great.

    In hind sight, I wish we were better prepared. But for our budget, we are doing pretty well. Even if I get laid off, we could go for months without leaving the house. Heck, we could even go without power for that long as well. So doing much better than 90% of Americans.

    Zeff, good to hear from you.

    Locally, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, beans, hamburger, and rice are at 0 on the shelves.

    I found out through a client what is happening to the to. They work at Walmart and walmart allows seniors an hour to shop before the general public. They are wiping out (pun intended) the tp stocks before anyone else has a chance.

    Zef, it is good to hear from you, and that you're all ok. I'm glad that you are fairly well stocked. We're the same here. Other than going a bit stir-crazy, we are ready to ride it out for awhile.
    Keep your eyes open, and be safe and well.

    Always glad to hear that someone's preps are paying off. OORAH!
    I have, once again, been deemed " essential personnel " so while I'm getting special duty pay I'm also in contact with A LOT of potential disease carriers everyday.
