So, fortunately, we don't have to worry about employment law since he didn't change his residence.  It becomes more of a departmental policy issue.  Sounds like there are other employees who are working from out of state in order to care for family, but they let the org know about it.  Our manager is gonna handle it from a communications perspective.

Yeah.  Our production servers are at a collocation and we have an even bigger network at the office for test servers, active directory, and file stores.

We looked at going to AWS ~4 years ago but it fell through because of (blanking on term) the court jurisdiction.  Amazon wanted to keep Washington but our district wanted it to be in California and since we were dependent on the district to approve it we couldn't move forward.  We'll probably look at it again in a few years when we start prepping for the next round of hardware refresh.  The good news is that we are currently using AWS to host our new help videos so we've broken the seal and got a toe into it.

The biggest issue is that if we go cloud we now have student data on those servers and we have to make sure the contracts include protection of that data.

And even once that is done we will still have to have on premise servers for AD because that's a thing apparently.

I might recommend Azure.  We're moving all of our stuff (slowly) to Azure.  Better controls, better PaaS overall.  OH, and we recently started using CloudHealth which will help you contain costs.  Love that tool!

just got off a call with 2 women from work - sales and marketing -- anyway, they were like, "I'm starting to think this whole thing is a hoax." And then the other one said, "I've heard a lot of people saying this is just because wants to put a chip in everyone." The first one replied, "I've heard that too, I tell you, I'll refuse one!"

you can't fix that kind of stupid.

They probably watched that plandemic video too.

Honestly, how can you see what is happening and still think it's a hoax?

Some interesting results from Indiana's recent study on its state's infection rate:

An unexpected side effect of this is that a lot of churches have gone online allowing people out if the area to join in.

A couple of our church members attended a service at one of the Minneapolis congregations this weekend.

Things have already been looking ominous for the last week or so but we are not in a good place in the U.S. with this right now. :(

how are things by in your neck of the woods?

Some of the activities are back on for our kids, and have been for about a month now. My son is back at BJJ - but it is modified, no grappling or wrestling until at least mid august. Masks optional. he goes 3 times a week now since rock climbing did not restart yet. The BJJ place will have 2, week-long camp sessions starting next week and we signed him up for both to get them out of the house.

My daughter's dance class is also back on - masks optional. Horseback riding is on as well, but due to her arm we are doing another week off from that.

public swimming pools are closed - which sucks. Good thing we have some white privileged friends with swimming pools :D
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Most things are still closed here or still doing remote or severely modified sessions.  A lot of the outdoor sports are going again though.  Our county just went to level 3 of 4 today, which means masks are required.  The next county over which covers downtown Cleveland is noted as 'almost level 4'.  So things are rising.  I suspect things will get tightened up again slightly but not full on lockdown like before.

In my little neck of the woods it is mostly the same as it has been.  However, we are surrounded by counties that have, let's say, less than ideal responses to the outbreak.  As such, we are heading back to more restrictions in a little while.  If only people who fucking wear their fucking masks over their fucking nose and mouths we'd be a lot better off.

Retail has reopened here. Bylaw was just passed requiring masks in all indoor public places and public transit. The only camps that are running are gymnastics and horseback riding.
