    I've been at work following with what signal I can, but that doesn't surprise me.

    There are so many exemptions in in the stay at home order it was useless.

    Sadly the time for a lockdown has passed anywhere. Everyone that fled NYC are sure to head to low number states/areas and jump start the spread there.

    Hate it for the morels, but what we need is a good old skip Spring and directly to Summer to see if heat will knock it down a bit.

    Just came here to post this. At least I get to work from home and I'm not laid off and still have my job.

    Every day that you live you are a day closer to your death.

    Once again.. brother thank you for all you do. People like you is what gives me the freedoms I have.

    On another note.. I just got to say that I sure as heck would rather be dealing with C-19 in the good ole USofA than any where else in the world!

    For work, (yay, I'm essential) I've been out and about in Chicago for the past week...people are treating it like an extended weekend. More traffic and people out on the streets than any normal work day. I was out in the burbs today (it's the first nice day in over a week) and it looks like a normal spring Saturday...kids out playing everywhere, people cleaning their garages without a care in the world.

    The Five is on TV in the background as I type this, and they're talking about...you guessed it- Corona Parties! Just as I predicted.

    That would be my guess. Once the news moves on, many others will as well.

    I believe when they model data they're assuming 75% compliance with the shelter in place request. From what I've seen out here in the burbs, that seems about right.

    The people I do see out and about seem to be staying away from one another and not gathering together. My kids were out in the driveway playing with each other today - nobody else was around. And I'll be in the garage in a bit - trying to get out of this dungeon where I spend my days. I don't see much of an issue with that so long as people aren't gathering together. My neighbors and I wave from across the street or talk over the fence like Tim Taylor and Wilson. We're not getting together to drink beers and share a meal.

    Well its way to late for that already. Listen to what NewYork City residents have done. They ran! I mean news people saying their apartment building was totally EMPTY they started running 3 weeks ago and have been spreading it across the country.
    I have always had to say I'm an upstate N.Y. resident to distance myself from NYC . Not any more great lakes resident.

    So we must have just gotten a shipment of tests here in Sangamon County.

    Had 7 patients pending yesterday, today that number jumped significantly to 265. I expect confirmed cases will jump as well.

    That's the only expanation I can think of for the pending results number to remain so low and then spike, testing kits were not readily available.

    Already quite a few restaurants hurting here pretty badly. I have talked to a few of the owners and not one of them is getting even half of their normal income off of take out orders. Extended to May 1 now will not be good.

    I'm an "essential" employee but am still supposed to work from home as much as possible. Hopefully they get things figured out here soon within the U as planting season is only a couple weeks away. As long as nothing changes with the ag industry being essential and we can still get our seed, chemical, water, etc.,. I will not be affected by this. Luckily the wife still has 6 weeks of maternal leave left.

    My sister works in the cattle industry and sent me a picture this morning of a piece of paper her boss wrote up saying how she is an essential employee and that she needs to keep it in her car. Are they really going to check these types of things?

    Not actively I don't believe, that would be quite an undertaking. But I would imagine if a person were to get pulled over for other reasons and questioned as to what their destination was it would be handy. My company has provided similar letters to all essential employees.

    We did for the employees, you get pulled over for what ever the paper will expedite you getting back on your way. My sister manages a feed/farm store she has a piece of paper too.
