I did, but I hope the lay off is for a short time. I hope the close is temporary for you, I hope its temporary for everyone. I'm sure things will get back to normal soon, I'm predicting June or July August at the latest.

The thing is the experts to this are playing this by ear. If people are still sick after this last shut in, it will have to be extended another 30 days, and continue till their are no more sick people. Or we will go back to square one, and people will get sick all over again.

The thing that concerns me with these confirmed case numbers is, there wasn'many test kits out, and people were not getting tested, now the test kits are giving innaccurate results from what I've been hearing. The test kits from China. Another thing I've been hearing, they are mixing in these confirmed cases with people that didn't have the virus, and died from something else.

I'm sure this is a very overwhelming process, but I weary how they are coming up with the numbers of cases. With all the confusion going on, mistakes can happen.

Unemployment office in my area is over a week behind processing claims. Phone lines are busy during regular hours... but you can get through after hours. Just FYI for anyone filing a claim.

I guess to be expected, very overwhelming. I'm sure we'll get a handle on it sooner or later. Busy, busy, busy. Overloads.

It is and if this continues our country will be bankrupt.

I sell online and sales are sluggish right now, this is usually my busy time with folks
getting their taxes back. I don't have much overhead so I will be ok for awhile.
I work in a bakery, we have adjusted our hours and work nights for less contact. They also gave everyone a 3% raise plus 100$ gift cards.

I hope everyone is being safe

When we went to Ukraine to adopt our son almost 17.5 years ago, we lived on like $50.00 the whole month at McDonald's because we didn't trust most of the other places to eat. Lol
