These are some crazy times. Things are escalating here, most people started working from home this week and the general advice is to stay home and not visit people over 70 but no quarantine yet. People have started hoarding lots of toilet paper and pasta but other than that things are mostly ok for now. So I'll be spending some time at home for a while, won't be visiting my parents until things settle down as they are over 70 and the city I'm in is currently the place with the most Corona cases in my country at the moment.

How are things where you are at?

We're okay. All of the toilet paper is gone in all of the stores. I think South Carolina has 60 cases as of right now. My new job has me working from home now. Probably going to be for the next month from what I'm hearing. We've been flooded with VPN setup request from our clients.

Working at home indefinitely for now. Mostly fine for me in particular. I'm just worried about other folks who aren't so lucky.

^Improving your home ergonomics is a great thing to do! I had a head start as I started studying from home several years ago. One thing you notice pretty soon is just that, that you need to create a good home working environment. Lots of room to be creative too, over here people have started using ironing boards as tables because you can raise them high enough to be able to stand and work.

Corona is spiking here too so I'll continue to stay home as much as possible.
