That sucks jkim :(  It seems crazy that you can't just work from home full time...

Agreed... like if you can work from home then you should be all the time regardless, but if your office mate tests positive?!

jen, update?
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I personally feel fairly healthy, barring what appears to be seasonal allergies. Sauyee has a weird cough, but he almost always has a weird cough. None of us have fevers.

I work in a hospital so it's definitely very helpful if I'm there physically to do work. This week being home means I won't be able to do a lot of in-lab work without taking someone away from their regular full time job. Moving forward, my coworker and I will be alternating who works from home and works in the office so that at least one of us is around to handle any in-person triage. Additionally, I'll be taking a point to point hospital specific shuttle bus meaning no more public transport and transfers.

I'll be at work on Sunday for a 9AM upgrade and the following Monday to ensure the lab is still running as expected after the upgrade and to discuss future planning with my coworker if he's in then. I have no idea when he'll actually return to work though. Per CDC guidelines, he needs to feel better (no fever without use of fever-reducing meds and improvement of respiratory symptoms) for at least 3 days before being able to return to work.

Not sure what we're going to do with the toddler on days I'm going into work. Husband works from home 100% but it's hard for him to get work done with a toddler in his lap. At least when we're both home, we can alternate whose lap he's in.

Feel like they should be testing him after those three days to ensure he still isn't shedding the virus before returning to work.  Especially at a hospital.

The virus testing option is that he has 2 consecutive negatives over >24 hours without other symptoms.

For those with kids, our school put together a Curriculum & Activity Resources for Virtual Learning spreadsheet that might be of use to you all: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zUWcmSRJaZtb5kleKqmiUqiZ4_P1-uPMypVvwIhphjA/edit?usp=sharing

The numbers are staggering. And in such short time. That graph is an awesome visualization. So yeah, holy cow!

what do you guys think of the stimulus/emergency bill that looks like it will be passed shortly? Who will we borrowing from to make it happen? we need it, that's for sure - but will it stop a depression? how many more bills like this can we afford?

Seems like most countries are doing it and most of them are more aggressive than us.  Canada promised 2K to every taxpayer for every month we're in this thing.  From what I heard the US version is a one time deal.  I don't think it will prevent a depression.  Too much has been lost already.  It will take a while to make that back up.
