Welcome to the new world order know as Corona Virus. We are fortunate to live in a spread-out city, and then live in the ‘burbs on top of that, so we are mainly facing annoyances, not hardships. I will take that any day.
The image is from the our grocery store. That isle normally has paper products like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, etc. Been empty for about two weeks now.
My $JOB told us all to go full time work from home for the duration this past Monday. This was not a big deal for me as I already do that two days a week, and in the past I have done it full time. The biggest issue is that the kids and the misses are home from school as well. They should be starting the new school on Monday, all on-line.
The logistics of getting the teachers ready are hard. Harder still is making sure the students have all that they need. While for most of the kids in the district, this will not be an issue was we do live in a fairly well off part of the world, however there are kids who will have issues with things like no access to a computer (or a home!), language barriers, or other challenges to learning. I know our district is trying to help all the students, but I worry about the other districts without the resources we have.
Upside for me? Well, more time with the family, more time for projects both on-line and off-line. It could be worse, I hope it will not get there.
Take care, check in on people, keep your distance until told otherwise, and wash your hands!
