At this time, there are cases of Covid-19 (Corona Virus) confirmed in all 50 U.S States.

As this Pandemic spreads across our communities I wished to provide a topic in which we may reach out to each other, talk of our experiences, provide support and prayer and share knowledge.

To start things off:

My county has 8 confirmed cases of Covid-19 , however there is nobody I know which has become infected.

My mother passed away early Saturday morning due to liver disease. There have been several changes which have taken place to limit the spread of this disease. The funeral home is limiting the viewing of her body to 1 hour by immediate family and closest of friends only. In addition, her funeral services will be graveside only to limit exposure.

This has been tough as I know there are many which would have desired to show their love and respect for my mother.
Nevertheless, I understand the need to limit the public's exposure and I support what were being asked to do.

That is rough, condolences to you and your family. Especially frustrating considering he can't provide a proper funeral service due to the pandemic. Thoughts and prayers...

We live in difficult times and change is taking place around us.

I visited the local VW dealership to pick up some touch up paint for my wife's Tiguan.

I am a repeat customer and the sales staff knows me personally.

However, there was no handshaking taking place today.
To be honest, the staff was guided to keep a 6ft distance from potential customers.

Has the threat of this virus changed your daily routines?

I'm on work from home since last Monday. My wife and I pretty much don't go anywhere now. I go out for my daily runs and we walk everyday, maybe a grocery run once in a while but that's pretty much it.

I think life has changed for just about everyone. I work for the Dept of Corrections and everyone seems tense knowing the institutional setting isn't exactly the best environment if you're trying to not catch this virus.

I have two small children and one of them no longer attends preschool; they were continuing school until the shelter in place order. Wife is stay at home (thank God) so no change there. Still take my dog for his early morning walks. Fortunately we live on some property so the kids can get their energy out on site.

My biggest concern is bringing it home to my family from work, especially since many don't have symptoms early on.

I am in insurance adjuster. All insurance adjusters for all major companies have been pulled out of the field. We are trying to assess damage via pictures and virtual. It's slow going. I have been trying advise people with minor damage and their vehicle is drive-able, to hold off on taking their car in. If the body shops close, no telling how long it will be and we can't cover rentals indefinitely. Shops are trying to take advantage since we are not there looking at cars. They refuse to show us a picture of a part they want to replace (for $900) and so I don't approve the repair then they call the customer saying we are refusing to fix their car.

Total losses are a mess since they usually require an in person exchange of title and payment. Not sure what to so with those yet.

I had not considered how this would affect auto repairs until now.

I work at a hospital. We're closed to most visitors, only 2 entrances are open and employees must show their badges to get in. My hands look and feel like crap from all the hand washing/sanitizing. I'm really hoping they don't need to do layoffs because there are a lot of good people working here.

It's difficult to say how healthcare will be affected by this virus.

For example, our hospital has cancelled all elective surgeries.
The nurses which once carried this workload are choosing other duties such as a drive-thru screening.

I'm very sorry for your lost Hunter, it reminds me to call my mother more often...

In Quebec, it's complete shut down except for essential services.... SAQs are open (provincial liquor stores) SQDCs are open (provincial marijuana stores) Essential yeah right...
Other than that, our provincial government is doing a good job so far and is being proactive and transparent from the beginning of this crisis. They took actions early and not just blaming other countries...

Sorry to hear of your loss. Never easy to see the suffering, but it is even harder to see them leave this life.
My mom has been battling terminal cancer for 3+ years, accompanied by disabling strokes, so I’m fairly certain that catching COVID-19 would be a rapid death sentence.
My parents’ longtime neighbor (of nearly 40 years) passed away this weekend from pneumonia, terrible way to go. He was 75, in otherwise good health. It wasn’t related to COVID-19, but is a somber reminder of what thousands are facing or will soon be facing. Given current circumstances, no public funeral either, which is hard for the family and friends.
I remain cautiously optimistic, but take the pandemic seriously, including guidance from experts and leaders.

Im in Seattle at Ground Zero for this whole Covid-19 circus. It's not even Mad Max/ The Road Warrior times... right until you pull into a Costco parking lot. I work in one of those companies that somehow got classified as " Essential" so I'm still here working 10 hour days. Meh. Sorry to hear about your Mom.

Extremely sorry for your loss and the added frustration of today’s circumstances.

Casinos are closed, it is awfully eerie to have both down town Fremont experience and the strip look like ghost towns. This means thousands, if not hundreds of thousands are now unemployed.

Many economies will likely recover well, but Southern Nevada’s fully tourism based economy will likely take a tad bit longer.

For the most part shelves are constantly restocked, but, many fear not being able to afford the goods on them soon.
