For continued discussion in this thread, there are a lot of political aspects in play, but here on this forum we avoid discussions given the scope of how communicating in an online forum works. There is great potential for good intentions in a political post to be misinterpreted, and then things spiral into name-calling or calling each other idiots or whatever... I've seen it in other forums. Yes, it's important to look at the political aspects and ask leaders about what we feel were/are deficiencies in the planning and response, but we're not going to solve those here in this thread. And at the same time, it's hard to say what the future will look like, and while we are and will continue to see economical impact from all this, the number one priority right now (and always, for that matter) is your health, that you're OK.

A timely reminder of the forum rules:!/

Rules 2, 4, 5 and 7 will be enforced in this thread going forward. For anyone inclined to post political discussions and rants, please instead turn to your favorite cable news, talk show, etc.  This is a friendly place, and we want to keep it that way.

And what we can do in this thread to help each of us be OK is, if you want to, to talk about how you are doing, how you are feeling, ideas on how to help manage stress, how to navigate this new environment we're in, and support each other as we all go through this.



Well said, mate.  :)

Let's keep people safe and informed with facts and healthy discussion, not fear or falsehoods.  Share information responsibly, and support those who create good information.

For those interested in making a no-sew face mask, the Surgeon General has a video showing how to make one with an old shirt and two rubber bands:

Harvard Medical has a webinar series with some tips for coping that I've found interesting:

Help yourself (and others) practice patience, kindness and understanding.
Stay informed with accurate, reliable information through trusted resources.
Connect with family and friends through video/phone calls, texts or social media.
Take care of yourself, pace yourself, relax yourself.

Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives.
