I'm not worried about the illness affecting me. I am not old (despite what my kids say - those little punks!) but I am worried that I could pass it on to someone else with a compromised immune system or my elderly grandmother or my mother or my in-laws... Or, I pass it on to someone else that, in-turn, passes it on to someone else who could get really sick or worse. 

 

Which is the exact reason why we should vaccinate when given the chance.

General rule of thumb that I've been reading is that for every reported case, an additional 2 people have been infected.  The multiplier is crazy if isolation is not taken seriously.

This will be the first year that I will be unable to spend the winter in Costa Rica due to COVID. All the other winters I didn't go because I couldn't afford to.

Any further posts from confirmed conspiracy sources will be removed.

So how are people's workplaces preparing in Winnipeg (and beyond)?  Mine has very little info other than listing ten countries that if you visit you have to stay home for two weeks.  Our manager joked about it today and when asked what the plan was, he said if anyone here gets it, we relocate to another building...which, ummm...ok.  Im hoping thats not the "official" plan.  I was wondering why they hadnt provided sanitizer and someone told me the removed it all from our larger building for cost cutting last year.  lol

And what the Brazilian official said last night:

 

"In a tweet last night, Wajngarten criticized early reports that he was being tested for the virus, saying he felt good.

“In spite of the fact that the rotten band of press has already spoken absurdities about my religion, my family and my business, now they speak about my health,” he said. “But I am fine.”

The presidential press office said Wajngarten is in quarantine at his home and will return to work only when there isn’t any risk of transmission."

 

This is pretty rich with lots of foreshadowing thrown in for good measure.

In regards to Trump and other leadership, one has to assume they have been tested and likely continue to be tested.  One would assume anyone with close access to Trump has also been tested. So he's likely fine...um, I mean, not infected (fine is too broad).

I'm not sure Trump is smart enough to pass a virus test.

My workplace is very, very public orientated. My day has been filled with this and all the contingency planning. Meanwhile, it's yearend, so it's already a gongshow here. 

Calgon, take me away!

He said he hadn't been tested and that he didn't need to be.

Buddy and his wife work for the feds.  One is with Health so he's still working.  The wife, her workplace is being told anyone who can work from home to do so and they're planning in case it breaks out here.

I have very little confidence in my workplace.  They had a bed bug outbreak a few years ago and relocated the infected area to an uninfected area on a different floor....so, yeah.  And based on my manager's remarks, there has been no discussion from senior management with front line management.

If anyone was that stupid it would be him.  But I dont believe him lol  He thinks "I dont need to be tested" makes him sound tough.  It just makes him sound like an idiot.

He is not a healthy man.  If he has not been tested, he's going to end up worse than the Brazilian official.

I hope he's been tested since he made the remarks. I assume his team would implore him to do so. 

The absolute last thing the world needs is for the President of the US to become infected and be down for any length of time. He's incompetent but the economic collapse would be terrible if he tests positive or becomes ill.

I'll give you even odds that the market would actually recover a bit.

My office is normally a ghost-town because the majority of us have the ability to work from home (and do so often) so there hasn't been much change for me. 

My wife says people in her office are in full-blown panic mode... to the extent a couple ladies are carrying Lysol spray with them wherever they go.  They are having to cancel meetings and conferences scheduled over the next few weeks so her work life has definitely been impacted more than mine.
