Shit is nuts here in Denver, CO. My girl works at a salon and I worked at a busy restaurant. Both closed for the next month plus. Income is gone in a flash haha.

That's insane.

We just got 8 new cases from recent returnees and they're all in isolation now. Still no community spread. Hoping it stays that way.

The governament announced here that they are going to try to help everyone out that is losing work over this, but I'm not sure how they are going to do that. Did you have a reserve of money Hed? Dangerous times friend. Hope you stay safe!

Our border just got locked down. Only permanent residents and citizens allowed.

Tourists have proven they have no consideration and only  care about themselves. Degenerate trash. Who goes on a tour at a time like this and worse refuse to do the 14 day isolation? Selfish losers and I enjoy the fact that the deported ones now have a permanent black mark on their name.

Just visited a supermarket in another town while waiting for a client and bread, rice and paracetamol are all gone. The supermarkets have put a limit per customer but it doesn't mean shit. Everyone in a family can just go in as separate customers and net huge amounts of product, then hit the next supermarket.

50+ cases now.

2 currently have no known links to overseas travel. We might be looking at the start of community transmission.

Govt announced alert level 2 and my work has told us to stop using public transport.

Good that they already start taking steps, our governament was too late and citizins still aren't taking it seriously. As a result we're probably looking at a full lock-down soon. Really bizarre. But hey, Doom Eternal!

My state just ordered a “Stay at home” demand, yet you can still go to the grocery store, pharmacies, parks, neighbors houses, etc. Not sure how it’s any different than what we’ve been doing.

Near all of my clients have cancelled indefinitely. I only have 6 hours with one client that hasn't cancelled yet.

Thankfully, I'll still be paid. We're about to hit alert lv3 though. 100 cases now. Some look like evidence of community transmission.

Our govt should have closed the borders from the start. Too scared of being called racist and making money was more important. Now they're scrambling.

I think on alert lv3 we can go out to buy food but most places will likely be closed. Non essential services are going down, so schools and businesses.

My country announced a "lockdown" on Monday night. You're still allowed to go food shopping and out for exercise once a day, but we're encouraged to remain 2m away from people at all times when outside. They're also strongly recommending you don't go and visit friends/family and that you work from home if it's at all possible. I've been working from home and going for a walk around the town on my lunch breaks, and it's surprising how many of the people I see outside are the elderly who are most at risk.

Yeah ours is fairly similar. We work from home, can go shopping, but the governament does recommend keeping 1.5 meters distance as well as forcing all shops and cafe's to close. Ironically only the coffee-shops are allowed to have a counter to still sell drugs, as the second they were closed the police noticed a surge in criminals selling drugs on the streets. The reason why drugs are legal here is to prevent that, and make it less appealing (works, mind you). So to see it devolve so fast was quite a shock.

Well, the US is now the leader in cases in the world and it’s only going to keep soaring. Luckily since my state enacted that “stay at home” order we have been dead at work, so I really haven’t been coming into contact with much of anyone.

In the Netherlands we have what we call coffee-shops, you don't go there for coffee Razz It is purely a business to buy weed etc. The Netherlands legalized most soft (and some hard) drugs eons ago in a hope to quell criminals and make it less appealing. It is generally a success, most Dutch don't really care for drugs anymore outside of a select few and it isn't 'cool' to do it, more a 'whatever'. Same reasoning behind legal prostitution. They both gotta pay taxes!

I always thought Amsterdam was the place to go for drugs, but it actually seems kind of tame compared to where I am in Denver, CO, which is nuts. It sounds like Mushrooms are illegal there?, my city just decriminalized them last year. I have have a drawer full of them, even though I don't use them currently. My girl just gets them as tips for her job lol.

We usually communicate Amsterdam because it is a shithole and the worst town in the country, in the hopes that all the tourists stay there and don't bother us haha! What you can get there you can get 10x as good and cheaper, regarding anything, in other cities.

So far so good, went grocery shopping with the missus today, really surreal. Tape on the floor to indicate distances, only a small amount allowed into the shop at the same time, digital checkout only - lots of weird things but good to see people taking pre-cautions. Really wonder just how long this is going to take though.

We just went down a level so a lot of businesses have reopened. Malls are still closed but post is working so we can order anything online now.

I had no work for a whole month as most clients cancelled. Still got paid though now our funder is cutting our pay if we aren't working 100% face to face hours. Only one of my clients wants support during level 3. The rest won't be available until level.2.

Thought I'd post it here too, but sadly my wedding has been postponed by a year due to CORVID. My fiance's family most likely couldn't make the trip over from Taiwan to the Netherlands as a result. That and just the whole mood would be weird, it's not a time for celebration.

We're both pretty calm about it, though I do fear my grandma might now not live to see us be wed. She's old and had a brain-bleed a few years ago which led to her being paralyzed for the most part. She's a tough one though.

How's the rest of you holding up currently?

Doing fine, I guess. Something I learned about this whole apocalypse is that many people think that what I do is hell. Been skating around town with a friend of mine much more often than usual, though.

Since I'm still in school, we've been using google meet for lessons, or we're thrown some pre-recorded videos, which is great, because I can speed those up a bit to save me time watching them. Also another reason why I haven't been playing too many games lately... You know, besides the comics and all that.

Anyway, I've said it before, but it sucks that your wedding had to be delayed, my guy. Didn't know that your grandma might not be able to be there, so hopes from Canada that she'll be fine.

Hope everyone is doing well. @Birdman at least it’s good you still got paid. Are you going back to your regular work schedule? @Raeng sorry to hear that man, hopefully all goes according to plan next year when the wedding is on. And that’s true Nadster, things aren’t great right now but they could be much worse.

Things haven’t changed a lot on my end, Ohio is slowly reopening things back up but as far as going back to normal...who knows. As grim as it may sound, I’m honestly just expecting to catch this thing at this point.

Out of nowhere our company has dictated that starting June we are all expected to be back at the office, despite the governament suggesting working from home until at least September. Not sure what to do now, but I am considering fighting it and refusing. I'll probably get into trouble, so I'm working on some backup strategies i.e. going freelance again or looking for work. Going to be an interesting week.

Eek, take care out there and good luck! This thing is certainly turning things upside down a bit. I'm also of the opinion that if you're able to effectively work from home, why not for now. Obviously, some things are better in person, but it just makes sense for now. I happen to be fortunate that I'm still able to work from home as well and I also wouldn't go back now if they said we had to.

We're at 44.447 confirmed cases with a total death-count of around 5.800, at a population of 17 million. No information on daily rates.

The reason is that some departments are slacking, so they force everyone back to the office. Personally I'm working more than ever. But I can do my job from anywhere as long as I have a phone and computer. The only difference for me being at the office is that I can say hello every morning to my chef.

I have a meeting next monday, here's hoping it goes well. Going to lay my cards on the table.

Get this bullshit.

We got two new cases. These two losers from the UK got through our border and were able to go to a funeral. A huge amount of people came into contact with them. They were tested positive later but weren't supposed to be out of the isolation facility. I don't understand what happened. Now the health department is scrambling to find all these people and isolate them.

We have this completely retarded concept called 'compassionate grounds' and apparently they got let out based on that but don't see how they could've been let out without being 100% negative.

Even our prime minister who I hate did a video saying it was unacceptable and shouldn't have happened.

Compassionate grounds have now been removed but as usual classic NZ waits for shit to blow up before taking action.

Just like how we let other countries walk all over us and never hit back. Australia deports criminal NZ citizens here even if they grew up over there but our govt won't hit back. Lots of examples but I'll leave it at that.

Little update on my part. Company I work for just issued a statement that even if co-workers have Corona, we're still expected to go to the office. Only people that have been in the same room as the infected for more than 30 minutes will work from home.

My mother works in a hospital where COVID patients are and she legitimately gets more death threats than lives she saves everyday. It is legitimately bad.

I also have known people personally that have died or have been infected regardless of how safe they were from it.

My workplace has been safe and has protocol, but it is extremely concerning how a few of them don't try to adhere to it and how we, as employees, are not allowed to turn customers away if they aren't wearing masks (only the store manager can, which is problematic).

There's practically no precedent for any of this and it isn't likely to go away easily.
