    My work has people going out and about under the guise of "we're essential" so a shelter in place might put some actual pressure on our bosses to stop doing work that can wait a month.

    Coming from somebody who has already pretty much been laid off from this, I can say, this is not a good idea. I wish I could be driving to work every day, even in these conditions.

    I have anxiety and always get seasonal allergies so this is a bad time for anxiety. I take an Ativan and it seems to help

    I think my allergies are ramping it up a little bit, too.

    Sneezing & coughing mainly.

    That’s what you still haven’t fully grasped about my opinion. I absolutely want to get your idiot boss to allow you to work from home. I hope everyone who can would be working from home right now. I’m absolutely not against that.

    I’ve said it is a terminology issue before and I still think that is the issue. A Shelter in Place or Stay at Home Order is much more teaching than just letting you work from home. If we do that then you can’t go for walks or visit anyone (within your isolation group). I’ve said repeatedly getting places like your company to work from home is needed. The stuff I described is not.

    I live by myself. I probably still would be allowed to go into the office for the couple of things I can’t do from home but even then there are like 4 people who have been there when I’ve been in. I won’t be able to visit my parents (they are at home and haven’t left other than for the store) to have that little bit of contact with people. That little extra bit would be more damaging than helpful IMO.

    Yep been on a bit of a roller coaster. Back and forth between feeling pretty good and positive to hopefully and most likely just bad allergy symptoms making me think I'm going to die and have already passed corona on to my wife and kids. Good times good times.

    We have not been told that, the only thing that we have been told is hold in place and do nothing until April 13th, and then we will go from there.
    Activates such as Prom, Sr. Trip and graduation were still on the schedule as of this time. That was early last week.

    I don't tend to have anxiety, but if there was ever a time to have it, now would be the time.

    That's what my wife had said. She's not to do anything as not every parent/child has access to online devices to learn/do assignments ect.

    I'd expect a lot to change this week with the updated CDC recommendation to April 30th. Iowa will respond accordingly.

    I hear you. I went for a run last week and had really belabored breathing a couple hours after. I was convinced it was the start of Covid-19. Checked my temp like every hour for the rest of the day.

    I would think you are right, I was really hoping to hear something today from the school, but so far nothing.

    Our seniors are finished May 9th, kids last scheduled day is May 20th, so if the CDC recommendation is followed through April 30th, you really have to wonder what is the point of the seniors coming back. Maybe get a few weeks with the other kids, but that is going to be about it.

    I wouldn't blame anyone for riding this out where they are before starting up a job search. But any employer that is showing that level of disregard for the well being of their employees is not an employer worthy of your services. Get out as soon as you can.

    Yeah I think I'm in agreement for most of your standpoint. I would not like if Iowa would mandate not allowing people to go outside and visit their loved ones. I have no idea if we would implement a stay at home if it would be to that extent. If it would be, that'd be incredibly tough. A problem I see not only from my workplace but for others on here and those that are talking via social media, there are a lot of companies who are risking their employees health as well as their family's health by not cracking down and doing the right thing.

    Like I said, the only way my company and companies like mine would do such a thing would be if there were a mandate from Reynolds.

    Oh, I'm aware. I'm saying that I've assumed it since then and been prepping a bit like that's the case.
