Yet it's the biggest news story of the year with major social, financial, educational, political, cultural, professional, and recreational implications for many of us.
And most importantly, suspending baseball!!!!!!!

I'm more upset about hockey. I'll have to find something else to watch that doesn't involve politics, talent shows, or real housewives.

Yay...Maine got its first case today.

Spring break has been extended an extra week for now while they decide what to do next. They are most likely going online for remainder of semester.

Interesting thought....I was reading some of the course stuff I got from DMAT training at Ft Detrick. Any thoughts this wuhan flu is actually a beta test for something stronger, seeing as it came from the area of a bioweps lab?

It’s been and being discussed.

Got back from Bahamas last Friday. Saturday I had a throat tickle sort of cough, which got worse. Saw the doc Monday, ended up with steroids and Zpack. No temp at all. Not blowing green. That is on decline. Wife wakes up this morning with low grade fever and cough. We only live together. AND, I pick up my niece and two girlfriends from their cruise this am.
Rode my bike through UCF yesterday, it's spring break but place is like a ghost town. Had my coffee with no one to look at.
Stay safe, everyone.

Do you have a contract or MOU? Your company might get some $$$. You can always refuse to respond to the station if called due to a “risk to your health”...

I actually makes a lot of sense to isolate risky people

I predict a baby boom around next Christmas time.
We’re going to need it when this thing is done with the elderly (according to the statistics).

I still think this panic and overreaction is way out of proportion. This isn't planning and prudence- it is absolute madness.

I heard it called the Boomer Remover and it seems apt.

How are they any “riskier” than anyone else?
If there is a signed contract, you can’t just break it because you’re scared. This is a FLU, not Ebola. Jesus, The Stupid is rampant!

Well my FD just put this out:

Due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, the Honolulu Fire Department will not participate in community events, provide fire safety presentations, or host museum tours until further notice. For those with an already scheduled event you will be contacted.

Last I heard there were still only 2 confirmed cases, both in isolation...
