Well, our state, as many states have a ‘shelter in place’ mandate plus non-essential business are closed

I’m self-quarantined due to getting ill – Friday the 13th (lol) I developed symptoms – maybe Covid, maybe not – but dollars to donuts – it’s probably covid

I’m still recovering – mainly fatigue, exhaustion – I’m surprised how bad the run down feeling is lasting. 

I’ve got what I need – & am doing fine

I’m a nature-loving introvert, writer, etc – does not bother me a wit to not have ‘night life’ or socialize or shop…to be honest not much of a different lifestyle than usual!

I’m getting antsy to go for a hike, hang by the river, be in nature though…..

My daughter is going home tonight… straight into quarantine, beginning tomorrow morning.

Apparently the national guard is there. You will need to show papers to move about the city.

Wow, heard Louisiana is getting hit hard. Sounds intense.

Our mayor just issued a stay at home order. We pretty much were though. Our county in NC has the most cases, but most from students/grad students studying internationally and coming home. A little community spread, which is always the worry.

The employer who gave us a letter to show law enforcement has now given us car tags as well. You hang them on your rear-view mirror, just like a handicap decal. It alerts police, National Guard, whatever to the fact that we have a crucial job to do. It literally says “Critical Health Care Provider”. If that doesn’t do, we have the essential personnel letter and our name badges.

The other agency…..*crickets*. I’m on the HR website now, printing out my employee info so they can match it against my driver’s license. It’s all I have to go on. They don’t even provide a badge. Good thing the governor is dragging his heels on putting the state in a lockdown. I’m straightening stuff out so I don’t go to jail.

One of my housemates (landlords) is a USDA inspector. He is considered an  “essential employee” as well, and now has to keep a letter and his federal ID with him. His job is to inspect chicken. Food production cannot shut down, otherwise….the run on toilet paper will look like a very tame Black Friday compared to a run on FOOD.

The county is now on unofficial lockdown. 

Some people here say that no one will care until a badge and a cop are involved. We’ll see.
