Are you scared at all? We're not quarantined, but we're more or less in self-drive isolation. We're in a place where it's being taken seriously, but not quite "lock it all down" level seriously as of now. Schools are closed, and restaurants are only supposed to do take out / delivery, that kind of thing. People here are still talking like it's going to be 2-3 weeks, but they're saying the peak may be 45 days or so away.
I'm not scared at all no, I don't want to potentially endanger my loved ones or anyone really
We have the same here, I was exposed to the virus but other people can still go through drive throughs, grocery shop and all the stuff but yes classes are cancelled here too! It really depends on spread where you are but they say most places are at least a couple months and then a summer lull and then probably a resurgence in the Autumn (that's what our health minister suggested anyway.)
I am home from college because the big city I go to school in has it, and the rural small town I am from doesn't...yet. I managed to get home right after the first case was announced in the metro area.
It is nice to be home (and see my dog and hear from my friends more regularly) but holy cow people are driving me nuts. The area I live in is pretty split between people that are taking it seriously, and people that STILL think it is just a joke. 2 days ago one of my best friends flew to Florida with his parents. He is in a high risk group. He has asthma and gets pneumonia super easily. His parents think it is all an overreaction.
I'm perfectly fine hanging out by myself and working on my art, catching up on video games (New Horizons is out soon yay!), but my mother gets stir-crazy and we don't have the best relationship so I'm about ready to jump out of a window. I'm excited to get my PC set back up and start ABing again.
I would be freaking out! Props to you for being calm.
It's so frustrating to try and be concerned for people who aren't even concerned for themselves!!
Most areas are allowing people to go for walks so maybe your mom needs to go for one haha. I had to encourage some family members on facetime to do so and even a few minutes outdoors can help .
What kind of art do you make? How long have you been at it? I've been painting more lately and it's definitely tranquil as heck. Also now that you mention it making another neopets account sounds great haha!!
I am in my 30s in Oklahoma. I don't fear for myself so much as the others without access to transit, grocery, and medical assistance.The lack of timely response has been unsettling. Our governor was out at the bars Saturday and Sunday with his family - finally came on board with the state of emergency Monday.
I am in the second largest metro in my state and stores are bare.
We are in self quarantine since last Wednesday - as someone in our family is highly at risk due to current meds and her health - so we didn't want to risk it.
I have been out to get marijuana lol - that's the plan as it is - everything else is stocked. Have to work on panic smoking lol
Thanks for creating the thread - well wishes to you!
I've found it so shocking how a lot of US officials have gone from 'hahaha this is a joke' to 'oh shit this is serious' sometimes, overnight!! Ugh.
That's really wonderful your family has come together in solidarity, my 79 year old grandparents are my biggest concern and they keep going out with church friends. Also I saw some photos of dispensaries with massive lines! Oregon I think declared they're an essential service so have to remain open! Wild times we live in. Enjoy your smoke
