Well, here on Long Island this has been getting bad and definitely hitting close to home. Nobody in my immediate family, but a couple of friends and some coworkers have been affected by this, including two deaths. This is very real, people just need to do the right thing, this is nothing like the flu!

Luckily, my company makes electronics for UPS, USPS, Fedex, the medical industry, Target, Walmart, drug stores, etc, etc. We are essential, however, company directive is to have everyone work remote where possible. We are global, total of around 8,000 employees worldwide, many in other affected countries.

Our Long Island facility (company is based in Lincolnshire IL) is normally ~1200 people, currently only about 50 people are actually in the facility in alternating days/shifts so they have no contact with each other. The facility has been thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and they are doing that over and over again during the downtime between shifts. Only the most necessary people are even allowed at the facility, our badge access has all been revoked for the time being to make sure we do not go in!

I am remote, no issues other than cabin fever, but not an issue to do my job everyday! Most people I deal with are at other locations, so a headset and computer is normal for me in whatever building I'm in.

My significant other is school teacher teaching via virtual classroom. We have a 17 yo also remotely schooling and a 19 yo who came home for Spring break from GW University, which of course became a permanent break, also doing work remote.
Only pain point is the internet bandwidth is quite stressed! All the video calls is making it sooooo sloooowwwww........or even dropping from time to time.

That and waiting and hoping Chevy will still build my Camaro! Chevy accepted the order on March 17, just before shutdown, so I hope it will still be built eventually.......but right now, much bigger and more important issues than the car I am not getting any time soon.

Stay safe, stay healthy, be smart and we'll all come out the other side.

Working in the luxury car business here. Our dealership is still going. Business has dropped off quite a bit. Normally 30-40 appointments a day here in service. Now down to 20. We reduced our store hours and the sales dept is no longer open Sundays. My girlfriend works at Best Buy and has stayed at home since she's high risk, but is getting paid. It's rough but I think with proper measures, we'll all get through it. I just want to track my car soon :(

Have not been back to Maine to visit my granddaughters in 8 years, God knows how I miss them. I "had" scheduled a flight during school vacation, departing NC on April 18th and returning from Maine on April 25th. Purchased the ultra low fair, the ones where NO MONEY BACK OPTIONS! An email from American Airlines advised me they would credit me the $340.00 for a new scheduled flight in the future, I believe before December 2020. I had saved a fistful of money so I could really have fun with four of them. We have five granddaughters, the fifth who is all grown up living in Tampa visited us in October and again spent Christmas with us. All the girls are being extra careful, schooling at home. Hard to imagine the son at home 24/7 with a nutty wife and four girls, one dog and 2 bathrooms! I don't even know why I am typing all of this, guess I am bored with being locked down! My prayers are out to all my Forum friends, praying you stay safe and take this seriously. Just read where the "Spring Breakers" went to Mexico to party, returning a couple dozen popped positive. People have to think of the elders! God bless all of you.

I know our dealership is getting hit hard, economically. The service drive is about a 1/4 of normal. I've lost three deals this week alone because of the uncertainty of the markets. The freeway we're located on is typically a log jam all day, now it looks like a Sunday morning.
We've been pretty much on lock-down since the governor declared a stay in place and only essential services remain open.

No visitors, no volunteers, no legal visits, no deliveries, no outside work crews, etc.

We have a questionnaire at the door to fill out and sign to pre-screen everyone, we're taking the temperature of everyone coming in, they must stay 6 feet apart until they clear checkpoint, etc.

No inmates and no staff have COVID-19 thus far in our institution.

If an inmate were to get it and depending on his preexisting conditions, he would be quarantined and/or sent out to the hospital. They would not keep him in general population within infectious distance of other inmates.

Keep in mind, I work in Maximum Security, so a lot of our inmates are locked down in individual cells 23hrs a day before the institutional lock-down ever happened. A max unit holds 24 to a pod, and there are 4 pods for a total capacity of 96 Max inmates per unit on the high side.

We also have death row housed here.

So unless I get it, I won't be affected at all. Even if I did, I have accumulated enough vacation, sick and comp time to take over 7 months off with pay. lol

Man, how do you do it? I couldn't imagine working in such an environment. Hats off to you.

I deliver meds and supplies to nursing homes, I won't be effected. The only issue
is the cross-pollination. Instead of keeping people on the same route all week, they
switch around, which is NOT good. They should be keeping people on the same
routes during this to limit exposure. But, we have the few cry-babies that complain
about pay every week, so the MINORITY wins again.
