    I work for a Major Government Contractor. My Boss just called me and said take tomorrow off paid. I said WTF. He said it's day by day and fill me in soon. This is unbelievable in my circumstance. Unheard of. Now my mind is really blown. Hope the range is open.

    My wife’s a teacher, and she and my daughter had spring break last week and are getting another week off due to the coronivirus concerns. Given the way this thing is snowballing, I’m not sure they’ll be going back any time soon. Texas is appears to be about to shut completely down.

    Ouch, hang in there! One of my sons just started a new job last week, today they shut down for two weeks minimum, half pay-and with what he makes that's not much. I had already scheduled this week off thankfully. I had planned to do lots of fun stuff with the 6 yr old grandson (spring break also now extended) but all those venues are now closed. Sigh.

    My daughter in law brought him, his 2 yr old brother and 4 month old sister over. We had tons of fun in the backyard with the boys running around on the battery operated atv then indoors with Legos lol.

    Their dad, my older son, is a firefighter/paramedic, on duty today until tomorrow morning, just texted he's being held over on ot. He's also an E7 flight medic, ncoic in the ARNG. Busy times.

    Yeah we are a homeland security plant and I’m sure if anyone has to be there when it’s my turn I will be. Nonessential people will go home but not supervision.
