Today, the Governor of Virginia ordered: Cancelled school for the rest of the academic school year Restaurants are limited to curbside/takeout and delivery only Essentially all congregation areas / brick and mortar retail are closed – gyms, theaters, fitness centers, salons/barbers, bowling, you name it Essential places of business can remain open – medical supplies, grocery stores, etc. … somewhat interestingly, beer/wine/liquor stores are part of this “essential” list. I’m ok with that … even though I’m not really a frequent drinker.

Virginia has 3 deaths now. My county, Goochland, has its second confirmed case. Testing still isn’t happening on a widespread basis. Stayed home all day today.

There are plenty of questions like, “why is everyone hoarding toilet paper? It doesn’t make you have to poop.” Yeah … that’s true. But with it being in such short supply, I’m not going to fault anyone that buys two packages if they find it when they’d normally just buy one …

Well, it’s been an interesting week. Starting last Wednesday, I was told by my job to to start working from home on the following day – and it would continue until further notice. I knew what COVID-19 was, I knew that it had made it to the United States. The previous Monday we’d done some tests to see how well a large population of us working from home would play out. But, I didn’t really know what we were in for. Life has changed at this point, in just a week.
