Schools closed here as well, local air force base just announced it will be closed for the duration. My banker told.me.two.days ago.that they just brought home a.deployment from Italy. Yikes!

Schools closing for two weeks, son’s college is closing for two weeks and May do all classes on line after that, hysteria and fighting about toilet paper even before it gets to the shelves. Runs on paper good, disinfectants, canned goods. Reviewing and implementing cdc guide lines in the office in addition to osha regulations. I have multiple plane trips scheduled and aviation may become grounded. No hockey. And all sports post pines or cancelled.

3/13 toilet paper is gone in my area, so is hand sanitizer, chlorox wipes, disinfectant, and bread
fights in stores, as people are trying to cut in line to get tp and water...
costco shelves are empty, line to get into the parking lots of several grocery stores.
there are cases in my hospital.
it just became real for everyone..... though I'd say now there are still 10-20% who still believe it's nothing but hysteria and over reaction.
a colleague who will manage the respiratory patients is afraid as the flu season has been bad... they don't know how many more cases
they can take before they reach capacity.
I suspect we will cancel all elective non emergent care including surgeries in the next 2 weeks.
we are running out of medical supplies, gloves gowns, masks.... staff has been stealing boxes of masks from the shelves.. so they removed extra boxes of masks from the shelves and put them on lockdown.... the hospital is telling staff to prepare for child care if you are unable to go home.. .as they may declare state of emergency and mandate staff to stay and work for up to days weeks at a time.
that has scared alot of the single moms and folks with kids...
a couple of the staff who are older (>60 yrs old) and near retirement are afraid of getting sick and dying...
they are at higher risk and are considering quitting if the hospital mandates them to work.
I have so much respect for the military... this is how they feel,... choosing a job where they risk their lives for their fellow citizens.
their families are afraid for them, yet they sacrifice so much for their community.
hopefully nurses.. therapists... health care workers in general will get a little more love after this is all and done...
lotsa people are afraid right now... afraid of the unknown...
I just shrug and say I"m sure I'll get infected.. but Im sure i'll survive... we have a job to do, and we'll get thru it..
schools are closed.... unsure if they will do online classes
sports are slowly canceling
the roads seem to be less congested, as more people are working from home.
expect panic the next week as cases finally start getting diagnosed...
try to avoid stores this weekend.. have a drink...
hunker down and enjoy the results and security of your preparation...
we were all relaxed last night.... watching netflix... playing board games (kids are getting better at chess)...
better than one of the 20 people who texted me last night in a panic asking me what they need to go buy at the stores...
my wife and I are working on a schedule so the kids have structure, expectations, and normalcy as they are going to be home alot and isolated from their friends.
we'll put them to work with daily chores of cleaning, outdoor work, studying, food prep, and some sort of physical activity...
I look forward to fishing with them as the weather dries out a little bit... and hiking with the dog ....
it feels so good to not worry about having to go out and buy stuff...
the neighbor, and my coalition partners will talk about protection, and sharing skills, and supplies if anyone is short...
I thank so many of you who have unselfishly shared your advice, support, and expertise to help us prepare
Seems no one can figure out the Governor's order. Is the start day flexible or not when the end day really is. How are the going to provide day care of the city children and meals. Seems he was concerned about one thing. The Teachers union demands.
They could have just switched the dates of the two week spring break and that would have covered 14 days of it. But the union did not like that.
Payton and I are going riding. That virus can catch the motorcycle.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

What a difference a day makes. Last night, Inslee made that order state-wide, so you can add another 50,000+ children in the Spokane area now with no place to go...and the weekend for everyone (parents) to figure it out.

The supply chain has not run dry yet, but it will. Give it a week or so...
Today’s virus task force press conference; “We are looking at and considering travel restrictions within the country.”
I was planning a 150 mile run on monday to deliver supplies to my 90 year old mother. Now I will be on the road by 5am tomorrow. Drop off the goods and haul ass back home.
I'm guessing he was shamed into this because states with far fewer cases had done so.
