Went to the grocery store yesterday at 6am...they dont open until 8am.  I was the 12th person in line.  making small talk with the person behind me and told him that it's worse that we are in the middle of allergy season.  He said he was having allergies too.  Then I sneezed!  EVERY head of the people in front and behind me all turned to stare at me.  I had to shout out "who here DOESN'T have allergies right now?".  Most people laughed because most did.  Thank God it did not get ugly!

i was able to get my weekly shopping done.  I did not need paper towels or toilet paper as my wife gets that in bulk from Sam's every couple of months and she bought a month ago.  The sad looks on people faces that were waiting in line to get into the grocery store as I was leaving really did suck.  My cart was only half full of bags and very obvious that I was not hording anything.

Yes the shops here are low on a lot of things.

I think the schools will close soon, they have in 2 other states! We are having non essential shops closing and a lot of people have been stood down having to apply for government payments. The government have also closed off state borders to try to restrict the spread of the virus.

The hospital I work for is gearing up to help the public hospital. We  have 1 ventilator but can use our 6 anaesthetic machines as ventilators if need be! So far we have only had one known case in my area. Luckily it was a mild case but there are 60 other cases in our state.

I was annoyed we had an employee from my Unit come to work with know symptoms; he was sent home via testing!  

So...please stay safe, wash your hands, don't go to work if you are sick, stay home whenever possible and, practice social distancing!

We haven't had TP or paper towels on the store shelves in weeks, but we should have enough for maybe a month or so. Meat is hard to find. We don't have lines at regular grocery stores (Safeway etc) but for some reason people insist on going to WInco, Sam's Club, WalMart, Target etc where there are long ;lines to even get into the stores

Stores have been crazy around here. Not much meat, canned goods, dried beans, etc. I was finally able to get a pack of toilet paper and paper towels. Walmart had that aisle closed off with a person on each end. They let one person in at a time and you could only get one pack of each. I got lucky with a 12 pack of Scott’s. Not as soft as the others but last much longer. Woohoo!

The word is here in Austin that the city / county will announce a stay at home order today.  Only essential businesses and other businesses that apply for an exemption and approved will be allowed to have people in.  I was asked yesterday if I would continue to work.  There would be only a few people coming in and shifts have been offset to remove overlap of the few that do come in.  The bosses are calling me the sheriff or hall monitor to make sure the few that are here are not violating and social distancing requirements.

Same here, we've been told to stay at home last week. Essential workers can go to work, restaurants are pick up/delivery only, you can go the doctor/get prescriptions, grocery shopping and a few other things. I'm fortunate we're able to work from home, been doing that since last Monday

The government is asking people to stay home too if they aren't essential workers or  hair dressers :shocked:  .  All the states will close their borders now from midnight tonight along with elective surgery. Victoria and the ACT have closed their schools and, this has caused a lot of parental confusion in other states that remain open!

The one thing I really miss is eating out at restaurants. Can do pick up or delivery still, and they've relaxed rules about alcohol so you can actually pick up beer or cocktails with your food. But Il ike being in a place and enjoying a meal, versis eating out of styrofoam containers

I can't remember the last time I went to a restaurant to have a meal.

But the shop here have allocated  7-8 am  each week day to the elderly( Monday, Wed and, Friday) and emergency, medical / hospital workers (Tue and Thurs) . I went this morning and the shelves were as empty as they were the last time I shopped within normal hours. It was announced the shops would closed in the evening for restocking for the next day I always thought the hoarders hit the shops but now I am thinking maybe there isn't any stock to restock! They are bringing back online shopping so hopefully it might fix the short supply.
