    Well, guess who is now waiting for test results.....yup...the sent me home today for voluntary 14 day quarantine because I was in contact with her. If she is positive, due to the folks she had contact with that one day, the IT department would be quarantined and due to the number if folks the IT people are in contact with, the entire department could be closed and due to those folks and who they contact in the building the entire building, 4 total departments, could be closed. And don't get me started on who she was in contact with outside of the building.

    They have already fumigated my office. I am home, I feel fine, I'm going to exercise and do taijiquan now.

    Life has really slowed down to levels that I am just not well equipped to deal with, but I think a lot of people are feeling this right now. Stay safe, healthy, and HOME everyone. It'll pass, it always does.

    We have them at work too, basically to show the police if they stop you and ask why you're out (as if the supermarket uniform doesn't give it away in my case).

    Speaking of supermarkets and key workers, the powers that be seem to have decided at my work that we should have days where we have every supervisor in, even though we're now only open 13 hours a day and that can easily be done by just two of us. So I hope the virus doesn't pick those days to give us a visit.

    I'm currently trying to sleep on the sofa with what is likely to be a " mild dose" of covid19 and it's horrendous.

    I'm wheezing, I'm coughing so much im being sick every few minutes, I have a ranging fever.

    I'm in reasonably good shape, and it's knocking me for six.

    Stay in, stay safe, and shield yourself and your loved ones.

    I hope you get better soon Deadpool :( I've had a few friends and colleagues with it with the same symptoms it seemed to last 2-3 days at the peak, so I hope you see some improvement in a day or so!
