COVID-19 APOCALYPSE THREAD

Recommended Posts

Twelfth case in NZ. High school student in Dunedin whose dad tested positive earlier.

 

Scary possibility that we're going to start seeing some community transmission in the next couple of days to a week. The culture here already has a lot of us self-isolating and social distancing, so hopefully we'll have a very flat curve.

 

Also, the stimulus package announced in Parliament today was incredible. Very thankful to have the government that we do right now.

Office is closed until further notice to all "non-essential" staff. In quotes, because they mean that unless you NEED to work from the office (equipment access, etc) then everyone is work from home until further notice.

Just got off the phone with my boss.

 

I might be able to work from home, but only for one of my two departments. This means that I'll only be earning half of my wages until April 7th.

I'm job hunting myself and I'm seriously wondering if lack of emails or calls to interview are due the whole thing.

I just watched any chance of getting out of my dead end job vaporize in front of me. On one hand I work in a supermarket so I won’t be losing anything, on the other hand I work in a supermarket so I’m going to get this disease

Forgot to report that because I thought when restaurants bard are not welcoming in-dining, that meant entertainment spaces like movie theaters. So either I missed that the first time or this was a few hours after restaurant and bar thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if my work closes very soon. We're losing money staying open. Trudeau's announcing income support information tomorrow though so I'm not super worried yet.

Eight new cases in New Zealand. That's a 66% increase. Twenty total now.

 

Meanwhile, my company just announced a pay freeze today, as I was immediately due for a significant pay review next week. Horrible timing and I'm frustrated, but I'm still in a position to weather all of this.
